In March, part of the Affiliate Summit team exhibited at the Internet Retailing Exhibition in Birmingham, UK. As well as speaking to advertisers, retailers, affiliates and networks, we held a prize draw to win a trip to New York including a free VIP pass to Affiliate Summit East 2018 (https://affiliatesummit.com/events/ase18/). The lucky winner of our prize draw is Lara Fraser, Account Manager from Digital Six.( https://www.digitalsix.co.uk/) Based in Edinburgh Scotland, Digital Six are an award winning, specialist e commerce website development company who work with some of the world’s leading retailers and specialize in e commerce website design, development and SEO. We asked Lara to tell us what she is most excited about attending Affiliate Summit East 2018 and as well as mentioning it will be an unforgettable three days, here is what she has to say: (image 128) What are you most looking forward to at Affiliate Summit East - New York? Being given the chance to attend a premier global marketing event which will attract the lead-thinkers, influencers and innovators in the industry from all over the world and to be able to absorb some of their passion, ideas and knowledge is a truly incredible opportunity. All of this in a spectacular location and venue and not to mention the opportunity to make new connections and hear from the people driving success for top companies. What are you looking to get out of attending? Inspiration, knowledge and ideas. I’m really looking forward to attending the presentations and listening to key speakers and discussion panels over the three days which will provide insight into latest industry trends and challenges. I always find it fascinating to hear real life success stories from the people behind the success, I’ll be hoping they share lessons learned and how/where they will be focused for innovating into the future. What can Affiliate Summit East attendees get out of meeting you? Questions! I can’t wait to hear where other attendees have traveled from, which industry they are in and what they are looking to learn/take away from the event. If you want to talk e commerce strategies, digital engagement, content marketing trends and user journey, come and find me. Who are you most interested in meeting and why? Coming from an agency background it’s always interesting to hear how other agencies are growing, building success and also how they operate/adapt to changes and challenges in the industry. However, I’m very much looking forward to the seeing the agenda and key speakers over the three days once announced so I’m keeping my options open and hoping to meet as many interesting people from as many different sectors as possible.
