After a full day of walking the Affiliate Summit show floor, I look forward to a little cocktail. OK. I look forward to a lot of cocktails. Fortunately, my friends at Endurance International Group (EIG) was kind enough to host a cocktail party for me.
If you don’t know who Endurance International Group is, you will know the companies they keep. EIG is the biggest web hosting provider in the world. Some of their brands include Hostgator, BlueHost, FatCow, iPage, and a few dozen others. The company recently entered the email business by acquiring Constant Contact.
With 4.2 million customers worldwide, EIG can afford to throw a mega ASE party. However, they decided to do a small cocktail party for their biggest affiliates. I prefer the smaller events over the mega parties like the Affiliate Ball. The EIG cocktail party offers the type of connections and networking that you can’t get when everyone and their dogs are invited.
The party was held at Riverpark, and offered a great view of the East River. In addition to a bar that can make any cocktails that you want, a server would come up and offer bite sized morsels in a spoon. This is on top of the food that was already there. Great food, great cocktails, and great networking. It doesn’t get much better than that.
