Affiliate Summit East 2013 Day 2 Recap

Shawn Collins
Monday, August 19, 2013 was the second day of Affiliate Summit East 2013 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The day started with a tasty breakfast for VIP and All Access pass holders, followed by some brief announcements from Affiliate Summit East 2013 Emcee, Wade Tonkin. Then there was an inspiring keynote address from Dr. Randal Pinkett, Founder, Chairman and CEO of BCT Partners. I might be a little biased, but my favorite slide was one where Dr. Pinkett featured pictures of a bunch of different entrepreneurs and talked about how none were individuals – they were all teams. Among the teams featured were Missy Ward and me. The exhibit hall opened on day 2 and thousands of affiliate marketers came together for a full day of networking. In addition to all of the business talk in the exhibit hall, there were also educational sessions throughout the day at Affiliate Summit East 2013. And we had a Philadelphia themed lunch complete with cheesesteaks, hoagies, soft pretzels, and Tastykakes. After the education sessions, there were a series of Ask the Experts roundtables, where a number of interactive discussions were led by industry veterans. Day two of Affiliate Summit East 2013 wound up with the Affiliate Ball, which featured a performance by Busta Rhymes, and boxing legend Evander Holyfield was hanging out with the crowd. Just one more day to go – Affiliate Summit always flies by too fast.
