A Guide to New York City | Affiliate Summit East 2024

New York, here we come! In the words of Jay-Z, it’s the “concrete jungle where dreams are made of” and Advidi’s Sam and Jeroen are on their way to make your affiliate dreams a reality. Are you ready for Affiliate Summit East (ASE) 2024? Because we certainly are. This year’s event is happening at the iconic New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square from July 29th to the 30th, though you’ll catch us around the city for a few days longer. We’ve put together a guide to (one of) the most iconic cities in the world, where to eat, drink and sites you cannot miss while you’re visiting the Big Apple.

Key Highlights of ASE 2024

The ASE 2024 lineup is hotter than a New York summer. Here are some top sessions and events that you cannot miss.

1. AM Days Workshops: These intensive workshops will dive deep into the latest trends and tactics in affiliate marketing. This year you are going to be able to attend the  “Advertiser’s Crash Course in Affiliate Marketing” and the “Maximizing Affiliate Diversity & Revenue Through Outreach & Optimization”. Both of them are a must for anyone looking to sharpen their skills.

2. Content & Commerce Summit: Focus on monetizing content effectively, diversifying traffic sources, and leveraging SEO for better reach.

3. Lead Gen Content Track: Stay updated on the latest in lead generation, including regulatory changes and optimizing for high-quality leads.

4. Networking Events: Engage with over 3,500 industry professionals through the Meet Market, speed networking sessions, and exclusive VIP areas. You’ll find us there as well!

Exploring NYC: The City’s Calling, Answer it!

Central Park: You can’t go back home without being able to say you visited this iconic park. Whether you’re renting a bike, walking leisurely, or pretending you’re in a rom-com by the lake, Central Park is a must. Visit the Central Park Zoo or paddle a boat and enjoy some people-watching. Trust us, even squirrels here are entertaining!

Broadway Shows: If you leave NYC without seeing a Broadway show, did you even visit? “The Lion King,” “Hamilton,” “Wicked”—these aren’t just shows, they’re experiences. Book tickets in advance unless you enjoy the thrill of last-minute scrambles. Spoiler alert: You don’t.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Impress your colleagues or even clients by dropping casual references to “The Temple of Dendur” or “The stunning Impressionist galleries.” Wander through centuries of art and culture. Who knew getting lost in a museum could be this fun? Be careful though not to turn left instead of right like Joey did!

Dining in NYC: Your Taste Buds Are in for a treat

Katz’s Delicatessen: This place has been serving deliciousness since 1888. It’s the spot Jeroen swears by every time he’s in town. Pro tip: The lines are worth the wait.

Le Bernardin: Indulge in a fine dining experience with exquisite seafood dishes at this Michelin-starred restaurant. Try their signature dishes like the thinly pounded tuna or the poached halibut.

Joe’s Pizza: New York pizza is a slice of heaven, and Joe’s is the angel delivering it. Make sure to stop by because this will be a big meeting spot for this year’s summit. What better way to get to know each other than over pizza?

NYC Nightlife: The City That Never Sleeps – And Neither Should You

The Dead Rabbit: Not just an Irish bar, it’s an experience. Whether you choose the traditional pub downstairs or the cocktail lounge upstairs, you can’t go wrong. Plus, the name alone is a conversation starter.

230 Fifth Rooftop Bar: Panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline with a cocktail in hand? Yes, please. Perfect for unwinding while taking in the Empire State Building and beyond. Your Instagram feed will thank you.

McSorley’s Old Ale House: Step back in time at New York’s oldest operating pub, serving ale since 1854. The sawdust-covered floors and historical memorabilia create a unique and nostalgic atmosphere.
