Back in 2011, I conceived the idea of a professional forum for affiliate marketers. No, not in the sense of an online forum, but an offline one — an event where the participants of the industry would come together to “talk shop”, sharing and learning new “tricks of the trade”, as well as ways to battle new challenges and leverage the opportunities that the ever-evolving field of affiliate marketing constantly presents.
Since then, we have held 10 full-blown AM Days conferences throughout the world (San Francisco, London, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas) gathering thousands of fervent affiliate marketers together — to grow together, share how we could make our industry better, and return back inspired and pumped up to grow.
Now, after all these years of hard work, I bring you some exciting news about the future of AM Days. Having decided that the time has come for AM Days to evolve into something new, we’re taking the next step… And today I am excited to announce that AM Days is joining forces with Affiliate Summit — to bring you the best of both shows: the laser-focused content that AM Days has been famous for, and the networking and other professional development opportunities in which Affiliate Summit is second to none.
Going forward, we will not only bring you “the best of both worlds” in one place, but we’ll also do it where it’s most geographically convenient for you. From now on, operating within the framework of Affiliate Summits, AM Days will happen wherever Affiliate Summit is held: be it New York or Las Vegas, APAC Region or Europe, or anywhere else.
To clarify, this is not a merger or an acquisition, but rather a collaborative arrangement for the two events to operate jointly, maximizing your benefit from both. You no longer need to choose between the two, but whenever you come to an Affiliate Summit, you’ll also have a way to attend AM Days.
Going forward, AM Days will continue its heavy focus on education, handling the workshops segment on Affiliate Summit’s agenda, building these based on the needs of the participants of our industry: affiliates, brands (with or without affiliate programs), technology providers, and so on.
I invite you to check out AffiliateSummit.com for the details upcoming joint event. We’re kicking things off at this year’s Affiliate Summit East in New York on August 11, 2019.
I do hope to see you there!!
