Clash of Conferences: Barcelona vs. New York

Welcome, Player One.

It’s a new world.

Once, long ago, there was ample time between major affiliate events for marketing teams to prepare two different promotions for their traveling teams…

Times have changed.

The performance marketing world is stronger than ever.

Two conferences. Two teams. Twelve players. One week in between.

This July, the showdown between Barcelona and New York City begins.

Affiliate World Europe.

Affiliate Summit East.

This epic conference clash spans two continents, with two of the biggest affiliate marketing events taking place within a week.

AWE logo

Barcelona – Affiliate World Europe (AWE) – 17-19 July

Affiliate World Europe is one of two major events coming out of Affiliate World Conferences; its twin conference takes place in Asia later in the year.

This is one of the most important meeting points for the affiliate industry – you’ll find everyone here. The event is the brainchild of STM, the digital meeting point for affiliates, so it makes sense that AWE only took a year or two to become the standard.

Bonus features: Geek Out Barcelona, SheCommerce
Powerups: Ultimate Guide to Barcelona, Advidi’s Rooftop Party

Affiliate Summit logo

New York – Affiliate Summit East (ASE) – 29-31 July

It’s been 15 years since Affiliate Summit events kicked off, and it’s only grown since the beginning. Affiliate Summit East is now one of the largest, if not the biggest, affiliate event in the world. Such a large audience means you’ll get access to a wider range of marketing models than at AWE, though the focus can be less laser-like and more catch-all.

Those in attendance include affiliates, affiliate managers, advertisers, OPM/agencies, solution providers and networks, spanning all corners of the affiliate world. Attendees come from 70+ countries to promote their services and share plans for the future in secret.

Bonus features: Free Access for Affiliates, Massive Speaker List
Powerups: FeedFront Magazine, Ultimate Guide to New York (upgrade coming soon)
