    Question Affiliate Summit 07 or Linkshare event 07
    Guys,

    Would like your feedback on whether I should go to the Affilaite Summit 07 (Vegas) or the next Linkshare event (in Vegas i guess, they have not set it up yet).

    Those of you who went to the summit 06, do let me know how it went.

    I am looking to establish new relationships with affiliates and also a few merchants.

    Thanks.

    I will be attending the Linkshare summit in January, whether its in Vegas or San Francisco.

    For me, affiliate summit once a year works.

    are you an affilaite or a merchant? What are you gaining from that.

    I went to the LS event in June and there were lots of companies like upromise, igive on there...

    If networking is your goal, I would definitely recomment the Affiliate Summit over the LinkShare Summit. There should be far more affiliates there.

    The LinkShare Summit (first of year on West Coast) is the smaller LinkShare event (typically with 100 affiliates or less). The LinkShare Symposium (mid-year in NY) is their bigger event.

    MColey pointed out something that just flew by me, you are referring to the LS summit, I've never been to that.


    I did get a lot of contacts at the LS symposium, though. You're right, there are many there that you shouldn't work with, but there are also plenty that you should.

    The Vegas Affiliate Summit is great, a lot of people there. Generally very CPA centric, but the Orlando summit started getting a little more variety, so hopefully the trend will continue.

    Thanks MichaelN and MichealC.

    I will try to attend the Affilaite summit in 07 and the LS symposium in 07.
    Met a lot of people at the LS symposium 06 in NYC but not many solid leads.

    Thanks.

    Cool Geno.

    I think Michael C and Michael N might be there too cos I know that those guys travel a lot to these events. Met both of them at the LS symposium.

    I'll probably be at both, but it's still a little early to know for sure.
