Affiliate World Asia 2016 Details
- Event Name: Affiliate World Asia
- Dates: 5-6 December 2016
- Where: Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre
- Address: LEVEL 22, 999/99 RAMA 1 ROAD, PATHUMWAN, BANGKOK 10330, THAILAND
Affiliate World Asia was incredible last year and this year will be just as wild.
Why Affiliate World Asia?
I’ve been to all of the Affiliate World conferences since they started. They have all been great, but I think the Bangkok ones are the best. The vibe is incredible and people come from all over the globe for it. Maybe it’s because Bangkok is so cheap to party in.
If you want a recommendation for a first conference, go to an Affiliate World one, this one if you can. Everyone is in such a good frame of mind so it’s a great time to meet people.
Who’s Speaking This Year?
Neil always puts on an incredible speech and I’ve learned a lot from him. I’m also looking forward to hearing Matt Woodward talk because he’s an affiliate marketer/blogger as well.
The reps from big companies have a lot of insight you can take and apply to your business if you can read between the lines. Sometimes it’s more about what they don’t say than what they do say…
Note: I’ll be doing an interactive session for this conference with Benjamin Yong which is gonna be a lot of fun. When me and Benjamin get together there’s no stopping the knowledge bombs from dropping.

What Happens at AWA?
This is your chance to meet your fellow affiliates, with the view to building masterminds and real friendships. Once you’ve met someone in real life, you have a much more solid base to go forward. Networking with other affiliates at an event like AWA will give you a HUGE advantage over a guy with no friends in the biz.
I recommend making a game plan before you go to a conference like this. Make it on your terms. Plan out who you want to meet and talk to, and the speeches you want to listen to. Don’t be that guy who misses out on business networking because he listens carefully to every single speech.
Here’s a video I shot about how to network at conferences that’ll give you some pointers.
Meeting Your Reps
There are reps from most of the big traffic sources/affiliate networks attending. Hit up your reps and see if they are going to so you can meet up with them in person. Skype is one thing, but after you have a few whiskeys with your reps, your whole business can change overnight.
If you’re looking to join networks/traffic sources, this is a great time to do it. Here’s a full list of the booths you can hit to get free swag and join up with them. No matter what you are after, they come to AWA. Pops, adult, native, in-app, social, video, advertisers, networks, trackers, tools etc.
Learning From Speakers
You only need to take away a couple of quality tips for an event to be worth it. I like to think of it like a music festival. You plan out who you want to see before the event, and allocate time for drinks with people you want to meet.
The Hangover II doesn’t lie, Bangkok is a wild ride. Seriously, last year I saw some things I’d rather forget. I preach to you guys about hustling, but some of my best hookups in business have happened after one too many drinks. We work hard, so take some time to enjoy the nightlife.
Charles Ngo is Speaking with Benjamin Yong
I’ve spoken at every Affiliate World conference so far and and I’ll be speaking again this year.
However I wanted to switch things up last year. Normally I speak on the bigger stage and I’m limited to only 20 minutes.
This year I wanna try out one of the breakout sessions. I’m able to speak for over an hour, in a more intimate setting.
Since it’s a classroom style setting, I wanna do something a little different. I’m going to spy on different affiliate campaigns and break them down. I’ll go through their landing pages, angles, and dissect what they could be doing better.
One more bonus: I’m going to partner with my best buddy Benjamin Yong. You guys will see the perspectives of two different super affiliates.
The room can only hold 300+, and over 1500+ affiliates are expected to be there. I guarantee it’s going to be packed so make sure you get there early to grab a seat.
