Affiliate Summit East 2009 is just a few days away! It is being held at the Hilton Hotel in New York City and starts Sunday, August 9, and ends Tuesday. Although the first day of Summit is Sunday, like many others, I am arriving Saturday and leaving on Tuesday. You’ll find me in many places including the Affiliate Voice, LLC table at Meet Market and speaking at the Tax Impact and Issues session.
On Monday and Tuesday I will be meeting with several people getting feedback on various industry issues. I will also be attending several of the other sessions and visiting other exhibitors. If you would like to set up a time to meet, send me a dm on Twitter, Mellies, or send me an email. You can also just stop by the Affiliate Voice table at Meet Market (table # 28) or just stop me when you see me.
Sunday is the Meet Market. For most of the day, you will find me at the Affiliate Voice table (table 28). Rhea Tannenbaum and I look forward to meeting and talking with everyone. Be sure to stop by.
On Sunday at 1:30 I am also a speaker at the panel discussion “Advertising Tax Impact, Accomplishments and the Future” (Session 2c, Classroom C – Concourse A). The advertising or Internet sales tax is an issue that impacts everyone in the online marketing industry. Please join, Brian Littleton, (CEO ShareASale), Karen Garcia (partner GTO Management), Beth Kirsch (volunteer Performance Marketing Alliance) and myself, Melanie Seery (President Affiliate Voice LLC) as we discuss this issue. Bring your questions!

There is also a Silent Auction to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters taking place on Sunday.
I am really looking forward to attending another Affiliate Summit and hope to see you there!
