Top 12 Affiliate Marketing Events of 2018

Here are our twelve picks for top conferences of 2018. Why twelve? Because it is a nice decision to attend at least 1 event per month to keep your productivity at the highest rate.

#12 Affiliate Summit West

Date– January 7th-9th.

Location– Las Vegas, the USA.

Audience– Affiliates and advertisers, US market.

Tickets price– Registration is over.

The Event– One of the world’s largest and most respectful affiliate marketing events. Every year, affiliates and advertisers rush to the Nevada desert in search of new connections and quality traffic. Even though the summit is over by now, we had to put it on the list just because of how important it is for the industry.

A thing to keep in mind: Try not to gamble too much.


#11 The Great Affiliate Ball

Date – January 26th.

Location – Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Audience – Affiliates

Tickets price – €45 (about $54) can book here.  

The Event  – A large party of 400 affiliate industry people gathered in one place for fun time and meetups… What can possibly go wrong? Nothing, if the meetup is organised by ABC Affiliate Business Club. Our team has been at several of their affiliate meetups in recent years, and they were all great. ABC choose new location every year, but the ball always stays in Amsterdam.
