Meet Market

Presenting at Meet Market with ShareASale, this speed-dating style event was packed with brands and affiliates looking to learn more about how to maximize affiliate programs across both networks. What a perfect way to kick off our joint positioning for the conference. 

RevShare RoundUp

RevShare Roundup was a huge success for both Awin and ShareASale. Our location in the exhibit hall gave us the opportunity for priceless connections with both potential and existing clients on both networks, and allowed us to zero in on attendees specifically in the revenue share space.

In case you missed RevShare Roundup, we highlighted Awin advertisers HP and Gymshark, and ShareASale merchants Wayfair and TheRealReal, and the excellent opportunities offered to publishers.

Famous Duos Party

Awin and ShareASale hosted the party to attend at ASW. WIth a theme of 'Famous Duos,' attendees pulled out all the stops when it came to costume creativity. Outfits included Things 1 - 8,  salt and pepper, soap and a loufa... even Affiliate Summit's own Shawn Collins and Missy Ward.
