Affiliate Summit started in NYC in 2003, but the longest-standing location over the years was Las Vegas. We contained Affiliate Summit West 2006 over January 8-10, 2006 at Bally’s Las Vegas.

That was the first year of fifteen straight for affiliate purveyors to converge on Vegas shortly after the new year.

We rushed around a great deal of hotels in Las Vegas over those fifteen years- Bally’s to the Rio to the Wynn to Caesar’s Palace and then a long residence at Paris.

While the view reformed now and again, one thing was consistent and that was the largest people who would come from all over the world.

We smiled, we learned, we suck, we chortled, we sang, and we built deeper relationships with each other that have previous all of these years.

Along the road, we also lost some friends channel too early, but we have such rich caches that will last forever.

We started these events with a couple of hundreds of attendees and as we reached the end those amounts were seven-thousand-something. As more and more unfamiliar faces joined in with us, we all made new friends, too. Beings from about 80 countries getting together for store talk and fun.

It was very fitting that we wound up Affiliate Summit West 2020 at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill- a beautiful going away party boozing suds with all of these true-blue, important friends. That night with the people there is something I will always cherish.
