The Exhibit Hall – Affiliate Summit West 2011

The exhibit hall at the 2011 Affiliate Summit 2011 in Las Vegas is where all the action takes place. With record breaking attendance, the 2011 ASW was the biggest show to date. The exhibit hall was buzzing with activities. There were over 100 booths competing to get the attention of the show attendees.

You can find nearly every company that has anything to do with the affiliate marketing industry on the show floor. The exhibit hall offers a great way for me to catch up with some of the affiliate networks that I deal with and meet new ones as well. When it come to building relationships, face to face networking is still where it’s at and a show like the Affiliate Summit is a great place to do it. The exhibit hall fills up very quickly. The best time to visit if you actually want to talk to the exhibitors is towards the end of the day. It’s not as busy then.

With the camera in hand, Syed and I went into the big hall to see what kind of trouble we can get into. Some of the highlights include getting the high score at Share A Sale booth, drinking and boothing, spinning the wheel for a USB drive and taking over an exhibitor’s booth to promote our own stuff. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for another amazing report from Vegas John. I really enjoy seeing all these pictures and videos.

    I hope to be attending next year.

      I’m enjoying the updates as well! Truly a great conference and hope to attend next time!

      it seems that alcohol was the best giveaway.

      1. Alcohol + Parties + Vegas = Affiliate Summit

        1. Abhik says:

          The equation should be..
          Alcohol + Parties = Vegas πŸ™‚

        2. d3so says:

          Yeah, that pretty much sums up what goes on at affiliate summit. too bad i missed it.

          1. D3so,

            I think that you asre missing the point as does Abhik and The Auction guy.

            The parties etc. aren’t the point of the event at all but only a small part of it.

            Going there for that reason alone would be less than smart.

    3. Harshad says:

      Me too enjoyed the videos. This one was the best among all.

      1. I agree with you

        It was the best of them all really.

  2. I wonder how much a booth costs????

    1. d3so says:

      I don’t know exact numbers but I heard that it was expensive.

      1. I remember when I used to work for a satellite company we paid $3,000 for a booth at a small trade show. I can’t imagine what this would cost. I bet it could really jump start a company though if you had something great to offer.

        1. Definitely way out of my price range! πŸ™

          1. The Affiliate Summit site has rates – guess it starts at $5700

            http://www.affiliatesummit.com/11e-exhibitors/

          2. We created the Meet Market for companies to have a presence without the expense of a booth – that starts at $2,585.

        2. Neon SRT4 says:

          For a satellite company, you got paid $3000? That is pretty a high money.

    2. Ridiculous, serious, money!

      1. d3so says:

        That could be a huge waste of money.

      2. Thanks for the link! Whoa pretty expensive, but not as bad as I thought

  3. Neil Patel says:

    Next time, I will have to join you and Syed and we will see how much free stuff all of us get combined. πŸ˜‰

    1. d3so says:

      I wonder if John will give any free stuff away from there.

    2. Syed Balkhi says:

      Haha Neil… I think we can rack up a good chunk. Let’s do it at Blog World lol.

    3. Abhik says:

      Hmm.. it feels good when you get something for free πŸ™‚

  4. PPC Ian says:

    Seems like a great expo hall! John always gets the awesome free stuff. πŸ™‚

    1. The aisles seem unusually wide between the exhibits which is great for the times when there’s a big crowd.

  5. Brad says:

    I would like to attend this thing, i would just love to be there. The marilyn monroe look alike is sooo hot….. my main reason would be the affiliate marketing of course….

  6. I’d love to quiz the Google Affiliate Network guys on why they hate affiliates and don’t want us on Adwords any longer. Interesting, don’t even understand why they’d own an affiliate network at this point. Do they even have a clue?

    1. Harshad says:

      I know their answer… “We need good user experience”.

  7. Abhik says:

    Nice share John..

  8. fas says:

    John man your crazy, love the way you take over πŸ™‚

  9. Domain Nitro says:

    I’m sure they were happy to get you to take over their booth – more publicity and recognition! They were probably hoping you would mention the booth sponsor on the blog as well
    πŸ™‚

  10. Wow! Marilyn Monroe was there! πŸ˜€

    1. It’s amazing that she’s still recognized after all those years.

      I did think it might be supposed to be her double but I wasn’t sure.

  11. Kirk Taylor says:

    The show floor was much easier to navigate than last years. Everything flowed better and there seemed to be more diverse offers than last year.

    1. Hey Kirk,

      It’s good to know that things asre getting better. Better and faster flow and more diverse offers make it sound like it really was a great place to be even without the partying.

  12. Missy Ward says:

    Great seeing you John and thanks for making yourself available for the Charity luncheon!

  13. ikki says:

    john is aprty after party, nice

  14. Glad you had a good laugh in our booth after the expo hall was closing! We have a ton of coupons available in our coupon feed for affiliates, but not for those merchants. Cheers!

  15. nintendo 3ds says:

    Is everybody allowed to be at these events? and you bet everyone was there at the exhibit hall. Saw clickbooth, also saw google (strange though) and another thing that appeared strange is no mention of clickbank in the post. Were they there?

  16. Neon SRT4 says:

    Excellent Party. Is everybody allowed to be into these events, or the persons who only get invited?
