News and Events: The Affiliate Summit West 2014 Party List
Affiliate Summit West is coming up soon!
Every veteran knows that the real network and fun happens at night. I’ve put together a list of parties that I’m aware of. There’s definitely tons of private events that I didn’t list so contact your affiliate managers to see if their company’s throwing anything.
If I didn’t include your event, then please contact me and I’ll add it right away.
Most of these events are going to be sausage fests, but what do you expect in an industry that’s 98% male?

I’m flying in Saturday Afternoon and leaving on Tuesday night. I’ll be staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
I’m not attending the actual conference / meet market. I’ve been to so many conferences in the past that it’s not really worth it for me anymore. When I’m at ASW I’m more focused on networking at the parties, private meetings with people I work with, and doing my thing at Hakkasan / XS.
If you see me at the conference then please say hi. Don’t be shy man, I don’t have titties and I am a nerd just like you. It might be a while before I attend another event so I wanna meet as many readers as possible.
I’m going to tweets where I am / where I’m going so make sure you follow me on twitter
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
