Affiliate Summit West - Las Vegas #ASW13
[/custom_frame_center]

First, the good news – you can still register for Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas.

The show is a fantastic place to get insight into this “affiliate marketing thing” but more importantly, it’s a GREAT excuse to head to Sin City and party hard.

I treat it like a working vacation, every year it’s an excellent time to see old friends, make new ones, share ideas, insights, war stories, and find more monies!

 

Enough of that – why you came here:

Eric’s (Unofficial) #ASW13 party schedule

If your event is missing, comment on this post and we’ll get you sorted out asap, or tweet @schwarzer with details and we’ll get you sorted.

Petrossian - Bellagio Party Hosted by Eric Schwarzer
[/custom_frame_center]

Unofficial Early-Bird Meetup

Location: Petrossian (Bellagio)
Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
RSVP: None required.

Hosted by Eric Schwarzer, this unofficial mixer will most likely exceed the capacity of the bar and could be moved if we don’t have the room. Expect lots of industry veterans, both affiliates, networks, agencies and who knows who else. This will be a great way to start off the evening after you early birds register and get your passes. If you’re in town early, drop in and say hello. I’ll be there – I’m hosting.

Charity Poker Tournament

Location: Caesars Palace Poker Room
Time: 9:00pm-Whenever

This event is a great opportunity to win some prizes, support a good cause (The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer) and play some cards! $150 entry fee applies, I’d prebook this one, as there are only so many spaces left.

Share A Sale Under The Stars
[/custom_frame_center]

Share A Sale “Under the Stars” party.

Location: Chateau (Paris)
Time: 8pm – 12pm
RSVP: Pick up an invitation from Share A Sale at their Meet Market Table on Sunday. Announcement

This is a tradition of every Affiliate Summit I’ve ever attended. Ever since the very time I set foot in the Rio ballroom to find a giant moon-bounce set up, I’ve been hooked. Expect the usual, an open bar, great music, and an awesome theme. TIP: Arrive early as there are usually giveaways and shwag you can snag off of tables or themed displays (The Angry Birds chicken coop at ASE12 was classic). TIP: there is an upstairs that’s outside – THATS where you want to be. I’ll be there, probably dancing on a table.

Affiliate Nation

Location: TAO (The Venetian)
Time: 10pm – 2am
RSVP: http://www.affiliatenation.com/Vegas/ 

Sponsored by MaxBounty, Clickbooth and CPAWay, plus a host of others, this event looks pretty good, seeing as it runs until 2am and hip-hop/rap artist Chingy will be performing. If you’re a heavy-hitter talk to your network rep (there’s a list on the rsvp page) for vip wristbands. I *might* make it.
