This is one of the most valuable face-to-face networking sessions you will experience at Affiliate Summit. Booths are small, close together, and palms are being pressed faster than any expo floor you’ve ever seen. We have always seen a huge return from both participating in the Meet Market and attending, so don’t miss it.
Top 4 Panels to Attend
1. SEO Clinic Location: Gramercy Suite Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm A panel after my own heart, this all-star cast of experts including Sugarrae, Jim Boykin, industry favorite Michael Gray (aka Graywolf), and the infamous Kenny Hyder will be reviewing websites owned by members of the audience, identifying key SEO issues and giving up the best ways to fix them.

2. Killing the Affiliate Nexus Tax Dead! Location: Sutton (South & Regent) Time: 3:30pm-4:30pm Possibly one of the hottest topics of 2011 among affiliate marketers, this panel address the nexus tax, how it impacts our industry, and how we’ve been combating proposals in various states. Hear from Rebecca Madigan of the PMA who has lead much of this charge, along with others including Scott Allan of LinkShare, David Andre of Cartera, and Matthew Schaefer.

3. Do-Not-Track? Not-So-Fast Location: Sutton (South & Regent) Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm In the name of privacy, the FTC has proposed laws to stop advertisers and third parties from tracking users without their consent. This panel of experts is diving into the potential impact of these proposals and what the industry can do self regulate and avoid legislation. Moderated by Brad White of uSamp, you find me, Peter Hamilton, Sara de Diego of the PMA, and Kimberlee White, Co-Founder of AKMG.
4. The Speed Round Location: Grand Ballroom Time: 3:30pm-4:30pm This is a moderated panel positioned as a light speed round, including short, timed segments to share opinions on industry issues. Though this is another panel I’m on, and you might be tired of my face, you should definitely consider stopping by and listening to this all-star cast of industry leaders.

Where can you find the HasOffers team after conference hours? #PartyParty
Obviously there are a ridiculous number of parties going on, so I thought I’d let you know which open events the HasOffers team plans to attend, or at least make an appearance. I don’t know if that impacts your decision on dropping by, but I figured this way you’d know you have some friends planning to attend the same event. If you would like to have the HasOffers team stop by your event, please contact us via twitter @HasOffers.
