    What affiliate events are the best?
    I'm looking at the lists. I've been to affiliate summit and it rocks, they have west, central and east.

    I see Adtech all over the world

    AffCon thats taking a cruise, after that big problem cruise ships just had, do I want to go on that?

    BlogWorld, the website makes it look pretty big, is it?

    PubCon in Vegas, well it is Vegas!

    And LeadsCon coming up really quick.

    Which are the ones that can't be missed?

    I have been working with PubCon Vegas to build out an affiliate track for the last four years and can say their sessions are dialed. One thing they offer that I don't see at other conferences is themed based site reviews. I have lead the affiliate track site reviews where we review affiliate sites or merchants wanting to launch a program. PubCon is about half the size as ASW and not in a fancy hotel but its a different vibe. Many SEO agencies, online marketing firms and lots of internationals.

    You may also want to look at the SEO and leads conferences.

    Thanks PubCon will be put down for a must see.

    I looked up seo and leads and got SES conferences and SMX search engine conferences. Compiling a list of which ones I want to go to.

    Thanx for the help Chuck, hope to see you at some of these

    There are also the network conferences that are great for networking.

    And the list grows, If I were to talk to one our psychics, they would say they see a lot of traveling in my future!

    I've been looking at hitting at least one more conference this year too. Was looking at SaS Think Tank and/or PubCon. I don't know if I feel like going back to Vegas again this year though.
    Thanks for the discussion Brett and Chuck.

    Ya I wish PubCon was in September so it wasn't so close to Summit. Vegas is cool but not much of a gambler so it gets tedious after a while.

    I don't gamble either, I've risked my life I think too much and have the scars to prove it!

    There are always the after parties that are good for networking and I ussually try to catch a show, didn't do that last month, had my Girl Friend with me and she gambles.

    Yeah, recently did one day where I was getting into the room about 6am, just to get up at 10 and start over, was at the key note and started snoring.

    Think Tank in Austin in May. Did I read that right? An affiliate pass is $50 and INCLUDES a two night hotel stay? Is that a misprint?

    I've never been to Pubcon, definitely looking at going in October.

    Tell you a secret about PubCon Vegas, make sure you stay through the last day and have a day to recover. They announce a bar call last minute and its a huge networking party.
