    Affiliates/Merchants and BlogWorldExpo convention
    Hi all,

    This is a question for both affiliates and program managers. Have any of you attended the BlogWorldExpo in Las Vegas?

    From a PM stand point, is there value in either exhibiting as a merchant or is it a much better show as a merchant to attend and network at? I know this is the first year ShareASale is exhibiting so I don't know if this is an up and coming convention or what.

    As an affiliate, if you've attended, what are you looking to gain from the show? more website management type skills and not so much networking with merchants?

    Aside from Affiliate Summit, any other conventions recommended for merchants? Any insights would be helpful!

    Thanks!

    Bonnie

    BlogWorld is a double edged sword. On the one hand you have bloggers with TONS of traffic that wouldn't *dream* of stooping to affiliate marketing or selling from their blogs, and on the other hand, you have tons of new bloggers looking for ways to monetize their blogs.

    For your first year I would recommend attending and walking around and attending sessions and talking to people. I'm glad Shareasale is attending and I am toying with the idea of presenting a speaking proposal. The affiliate track wasn't all that well attended last year from what I was told.

    That's a great idea. That's how Loxly and I met at an AdTech in NYC

    Great advice! I just missed ASW - would've loved to attend. I was looking at this thread to see what events/conventions people were attending. Hopefully there will be something coming up again - can't make it to ASE in New York.
