    Fantastic Meet Market
    I just wanted to post quick note here from Affiliate Summit about how thrilled I was at the Meet Market yesterday. It was not only the largest in number of tables, but very well attended. From a merchant standpoint there was a wonderful number of affiliates stopping by to find out about merchant programs. And for a six hour event, it had a steady flow of people the entire time.

    Thanks Shawn, Missy and staff for all you did and do for these events. Much, much appreciated.

    Yes, a very rewarding day, indeed. From an affiliate point of view there was plenty to see and many interesting people to talk with. I believe that no matter one's vertical or niche, there were new relationships to be developed and some deals to be cut.

    Thank you Missy and Shawn and crew. Awesome day. Whetted the appetite for the two that follow.

    Amen to the above two posts. This one was by far the best I've ever attended. Even without exhibiting I found extremely useful.

    Great Summit kick-off!

    I loved it. Its so much more laid back and we made so many contacts. This is the second meet market I've attended and they just keep getting better and better.

    The Meet Market really was special. Nothing against the booths, but I found the tables less ostentatious and more approachable; I also found it easier to approach and talk with other attendees.

    Although this was my first Affiliate Summit, I have worked and walked other trade shows, and by far the Meet Market was the most productive, communal, and reciprocal trade show environment I have been in.

    Great event! Unaware of what to expect at the meet market, I assumed most of the tables would be geared to capture new affiliates. However, I was delighted to find many interesting products and information for merchants as well.

    The Meet Market in Vegas was absolutely fantastic - best one yet! We were very excited at the number of folks that stopped by our table to find out about us and the number of new faces in the crowd was incredible. We'll definitely be registering for another one in Boston.

    Meet market was good. A little more crowded than I expected. I did not feel comfortable waiting in line at times to meet a merchant ...

    As a first time attender of affiliate summit, I was thoroughly impressed with the meet market. Not only great to learn and meet, but a wide variety of offerings. Hope to be able to make Boston.

    As for number of people, that would be a hard guess as several people made it for part of the afternoon, but the room was full for the full session.

    I am absolutely in agreement with all above. Being a true newbie to the Affiliate Summit - as an attendee and as an exhibitor...I had no idea what to expect. Without a reason of doubt, I was blown away. I wanted to thank you all for coming by the booth and showing love - I could never imagine that those penguins would be SUCH A HIT.

    If anybody is unsure as to whether or not they should get a booth at the next meet market - don't think twice...worth every penny!

    There was a substantial amount of energy and excitement - every convention should have that same buzz. Great meeting everybody and I sincerely look forward to getting to know you all better.

    The Meet Market was in one word...exhilarating!

    There was constant foot traffic and I believe more affiliates attended the event than the previous year.

    If you are a merchant, affiliate manager, etc., I strongly suggest a Meet Market table to promote your business. I am already seeing sign ups to the program that are a direct result from the 4Checks table.
