Affiliate Summit West 2024 Recap
This week we marked a huge milestone for the Mosaic team. We jet-setted our way to the brightest city in the world for one of the most popular conventions for affiliate marketing and content publishing royalty–Affiliate Summit West! This was our first conference as a group so we knew we had a great time in store for us. Hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada, we were obligated to work and play hard. The team enjoyed meeting with top affiliates and attending star-studded workshops at Caesar’s Forum by day, then good eats and clinked glasses by night. We were extremely grateful for the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the best our industry has to offer and, most importantly, for the chance to spend quality time bonding as a team during this experience we will not soon forget. Below is a round-up of everything that happened in Vegas, save everything that stayed, of course!
What is Affiliate Summit West?
Best known for, and we quote, ‘Aligning the Partnership Universe’, Affiliate Summit is home to the biggest affiliate marketing conventions in the world! Every year from coast to coast, over 6,000 of the affiliate space’s most notable players gather together to connect with all the latest and greatest partnership marketing has to offer. Affiliate Summit West takes Vegas by storm bringing a diverse crowd of affiliates, advertisers, networks, and tech suppliers(that’s us!) all to one place for the conference of a lifetime.
While our partners, Advertise Purple, are seasoned veterans when it comes to Affiliate Summits, the MDS team was still a little bit wet behind the ears. Of course that did not stop us from putting ourselves out there, meeting with partners, and sitting in on conversations held by highly-esteemed industry insiders about how affiliate marketing has evolved over the years and forecasts for where it’s going in the future. Our findings and connections will net us a better understanding of the gaps in the market technology like ours can fill. Over the next few weeks, we will unpack all the key takeaways and golden nuggets of insights as we apply the knowledge absorbed from our time at ASW.
MDS Takes ASW ‘24
We hit the jackpot of unforgettable experiences. Here are a handful of the best moments from our time in Vegas at Affiliate Summit West 2024!
We’re not like a regular job, we’re a cool job. MDS flies in style from JSX.
After getting settled, we set off for a team dinner with our AdPurp peeps! Komodo gave us the VIP treatment outfitted with a customized menu.
The following day, we checked in, retrieved our bags, and set out for our respective meetings and workshops. And the fun began!
Along with meeting with partners, we attended several workshops that featured affiliate industry mavens like Awin and ShareASale’s Chief Customer Officer, David Lloyd, and publisher Goliaths like Rolling Stone and Hearst Magazines! They shared their thoughts on how emerging technological innovations are impacting the partnership space, shifting perspectives on the power of cultivating relationships with publishers, as well as the trouble spots that present challenges for publishers and brands alike and fresh ideas for how to solve them.
All in all, ASW was a success! We are very grateful to have been in the building with the industry thought leaders we look up to. We absorbed a wealth of information we will be able to take back to the drawing board as we continue to develop our tech and provide solutions for affiliate marketing needs across business verticals. We can’t wait for the next chance to rub shoulders with affiliate marketing royalty, but for now, we’re back at home base making MDS the best platform for brands of all sizes to scale their partnerships program. Until we meet again ASW!
