With January (and Affiliate Summit West) behind us, we thought we’d look ahead to this year’s other important conferences that are relevant for affiliate and partner marketers. Every year, there is a plethora of “must-attend” marketing events with which you could fill your entire calendar from January to December. Depending on your marketing specialty or niche, it can be tough to figure out which ones will deliver the most value to you in exchange for your time.
Here's a recap of our first Innovation Day in New York!
Innovation Day is a series of events tailored to the partner marketing industry that are staged in leading cities worldwide. Held on November 8th 2018, Innovation Day New York was the seventh such event, and the second to take place in the United States. In 2018, we have also held Innovation Days in Sydney, London, and San Francisco..
On November 15, the Partnerize New York team enjoyed dinner with the Firneo Business Development Community to discuss the changing landscape of strategic partnerships.
Our first-ever Innovation Day in New York took place on November 8th, and by all accounts, it was a smashing success. Attendance exceeded expectations, with 156 attendees from around the world coming together at Convene in Downtown Manhattan for an afternoon of thought-provoking content focused on The Science of Partnership. The audience was comprised of Partnerize clients, partners, technology partners, and agency executives from leading US and global brands from a variety of verticals.
In just one week, our global Innovation Day event series is coming to New York City. It's our first New York event and we couldn't be more excited!
Last week the Partnerize APAC team joined a large contingent of partner industry leaders at the Sands Expo Centre in Singapore for the first-ever Affiliate Summit APAC.
Partnerize has been shortlisted for six 2018 International Performance Marketing Awards. The International PMAs recognize the very best in global performance marketing and celebrate innovation, creativity, and success within our industry.
I had the pleasure of attending my first Affiliate Summit East (or West) last week. I was excited to soak it all in, check out as many sessions as I could, hear the buzz at the Meet Market, and do a bit of networking.
Taking place over three days at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, the event had somewhat of a family reunion feel. It also had a very international vibe — with attendees from 70+ countries representing over 1,700 companies. Content consisted of 50 presentations, and panels from over 60 speakers covering the latest industry trends, analyses, and challenges. Overall, ASE18 did not disappoint.
Last week several members of the Partnerize team joined with AIM (All Inclusive Marketing), and marketers from leading global brands, for a valuable and thought-provoking event at the Hawksworth Restaurant in Vancouver. Senior level marketers from brands across varied verticals such as retail, finance, and technology attended the dinner. By bringing them together with leaders from AIM and our cross-functional Partnerize team, lively conversation developed on how digital is changing and the ongoing evolution of partner marketing.
The first ever U.S. installment of our global Innovation Day event series took place in San Francisco on May 15th. Over 130 marketing leaders from global brands and partners descended on the Bluxome Street Winery for an afternoon of insightful discussions and networking. Of those, more than 40 attendees traveled more than 1,500 miles to join us at this event.
