Last month, I wrote about my trip into the Affiliate Summit Meetup in Chicago. The events are happening in over 60 locations around the world.

The Chicago event is happening on Tuesday, April 26th and is being held at Parthenon, where they have FREE valet parking.

Shareasale appears to be hosting the event again as Brian Littleton, the CEO of Shareasale is the organizer.

Other locations that are hosting Affiliate Summit Meetup’s include Orlando (FL),  Austin (TX), San Francisco (CA), New York (NY), Denver (CO), Baltimore (MD), Atlanta (GA), Kansas City (MO), Spokane (WA), London (UK), Portland (OR), Los Angeles (CA), Nassau, Labasa (Fiji) and Starkville (MS).

If you are anywhere near one of these locations and you’re into affiliate marketing, you need to attend these events. They are no cost or very little cost to attend.

Some people are traveling to other events like me and Kurt Scholle who is attending both the Chicago and Orlando events. This makes a big impact when people at the event know you have traveled some distance to join them.

Affiliate Summit, co-founded by Shawn Collins and Missy Ward also offer two major conferences a year. Affiliate Summit West 2011 (#ASW11) attracted over 4,000 people in Las Vegas and is anticipating a record turnout for Affiliate Summit East 2011 (#ASE11) , New York City, in August.

You don’t want to miss their events. The education is fantastic, the parties are out of this world and the connections you make are priceless.

The keynote speakers for Affiliate Summit East 2011 include Jon Spoelstra (author of Marketing Outrageously and former General Manager of the Portland Trail Blazers, President of the New Jersey Nets and President of Mandalay Bay Baseball Properties), Bryan Eisenberg (co-author of the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, USA Today and New York Times bestselling books “Call To Action”, “Waiting for Your Cat To Bark?” and “Always Be Testing”), and Wil Reynolds (Speerheaded The SEO strategies for companies like Barnes & Noble, Disney, Harmon Kardon, Debeers, Doubleclick, Hotjobs, and Mercedes Benz USA).
