As a marketing professional, we must stay up to date with the latest information, industry experts, and changes in trends! Opting for blogs when looking for up to date information (oh hey there!) and Twitter for industry experts, let’s not forget a valuable resource for all 3: marketing summits! With 2020 bringing many changes and a new normal, marketing summits have followed suit, entering the remote world. Though 2021 may bring a bit of normality back, below is a list of both in-person and remote upcoming digital marketing summits in order to keep your skills sharp!
Affiliate Summit is an annual summit where all the top companies and key decision-makers in the space come. These events are typically 3 days, filled with keynote speakers, networking, evening drinks, and afterparties (if you’re into *that* type of networking).
There are typically 4 events held each year:
- Affiliate Summit West: Las Vegas (February 2, 2021 – February 4, 2021)
