Traditionally we attend Affiliate Summit representing our merchants that we manage, and spend our time discussing our programs with affiliates, talking about industry issues with our peers and meeting new people. Sometimes we have a Meet Market table, and Deborah has spoken on many panels, This time Deborah had a Meet Market table for the Affiliate Summit Networking forum to bring attention to the fact that people can network there between affiliate summit events, and Vinny was a speaker with a solo presentation. We also had more merchants actually in attendance than we have had at one time in the past.

We are inviting Merchants to come ask questions about starting or running an affiliate program, and inviting Affiliates to come tell Merchants what your pet peeve is or what you would like to see them doing differently. This is your chance to ask industry experts your questions and share your own thoughts about affiliate marketing.
We will be at the buy.at booth #300 Monday and Tuesday, but you can email questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to attend, but would still like to ask a question for the group to answer, or tweet your question to @buyatUS or @merchantabcs, we will be monitoring both accounts before, during and after the show!
