Affiliate Summit West 2014 Day 2 Recap

Shawn Collins
Monday, January 13, 2014 was the second day of Affiliate Summit West 2014 at Paris Las Vegas. The day started with a tasty breakfast for VIP and All Access pass holders, followed by a series of educational sessions and the opening of the exhibit hall. Later in the morning, we had brief announcements from Affiliate Summit West 2014 Emcee, Marty Fahncke, followed by a funny and data rich keynote address from Steve Denton, Vice President of Marketing Solutions at eBay Enterprise. After the keynote, the action returned to the exhibit hall, where thousands of affiliate marketers descended on the booths. One of the very popular attractions was the Hostamania booth, where Hulk Hogan posed for pictures with conference attendees. In addition to all of the business talk in the exhibit hall, there were also educational sessions throughout the day at Affiliate Summit West 2014 on topics that included mobile, conversion rate optimization, affiliate management, WordPress, affiliate recruitment, coupons, and Google+. 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 West 2014 wound up with the Affiliate Ball, which featured Flavor Flav, B Real from Cypress Hill, Too $hort, and more. They also gave out AFFY Awards, and Amy Rodriguez and Colleen Makel of Affiliate Summit were recipients. Thanks to Darren Blatt for pulling together another epic Affiliate Ball. Just one more day to go – Affiliate Summit always flies by too fast.
