Tuesday, August 20, 2013 was the third and final day of Affiliate Summit East 2013 at Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. The day started with a tasty attendee breakfast, and I got nice and fueled up on bacon and juice. This was followed by a power packed keynote from Wil Reynolds on the changes coming from Google and how affiliate marketers should adapt. Not everybody loved it, but I did. The final day of Affiliate Summit East 2013 also featured a series of breakout sessions and lots of networking in the exhibit hall. The conference closed out with a different sort of keynote from Rae Hoffman – she talked about things her son taught her about life and business. This talk was based on a blog post Rae made a few months ago: 11 Things My Son Taught Me About Life & Business. I will neither confirm nor deny that I got a little teary eyed. After Affiliate Summit East 2013 wrapped up, we brought speakers and some attendees (there was a chance to get a spot during my First Timers Orientation) from the conference to enjoy dinner, drinks, networking, and general goofy times at the Phillies game. Thank you to everybody who came out to network, learn and have fun with us – Affiliate Summit East 2013 was the biggest Affiliate Summit ever with over 4,400 attendees!
