A team from Optimus recently headed to New York to attend Affiliate Summit East 2019. We spoke with people from various businesses at our stand in the exhibition hall and made the Optimus name known to our new US contacts. We were also shortlisted for Best Agency at the Pinnacle Awards which took place on the final afternoon of the event.

The New York event, which took place in the Marriott Marquis on Times Square, is one of several Affiliate Summit’s which take place across the globe. The event features networking opportunities, seminars and talks by industry leaders. Speakers included those from Buzzfeed, RewardStyle, Groupon and AWIN.

The event didn’t end when the exhibition hall closed – Awin + ShareASale held an afterparty and the official Affiliate Ball was held at the nearby Copacabana. The Optimus team also attended a networking event held by Impact at a venue which involved playing ping-pong whilst enjoying the bar and buffet – although not all at the same time of course!
