Sunday, January 12, 2014 was the first day of Affiliate Summit West 2014 at Paris Las Vegas. Registration check-in and set-up for the Meet Market kicked off the day at 8:00 AM. I gave my First Timers Orientation for Affiliate Summit West 2014 session at 10:00 AM, and I was glad to see a packed crowd of folks eager to learn how to optimize their time at the conference. This was followed by sixteen breakout sessions throughout the day that covered SEO, compliance, blogging, Facebook, coupons, international, video, and more topics. The Meet Market opened at noon and ran through 6:00 PM with a steady stream of attendees meeting with the table exhibitors. During the day, exhibitors built out their booths in the exhibit hall for Monday and Tuesday. The day wrapped up with a welcome talk from Emcee Marty Fahncke, followed by a series of elevator pitches where attendees were able to step up on stage to let the crowd know what they’re looking for at the conference. The agenda finished up with a Lady Blogger meetup, as well as a get together of participants in the Newcomer Program. There were lots of networking options in the evening for Affiliate Summit West 2014 attendees. I checked out the ShareASale Under The Stars Super Heroes vs Super Villains Party at the Chateau Rooftop at Paris Las Vegas. There were lots of entertaining costumes, on both the hero and villain sides. I was on the side of good as Beer Man. On to day two of Affiliate Summit West 2014.
