All conferences are an investment – an investment in your business, partnerships, knowledge and future plans – but we truly believe that if there is one conference worth spending the money on in 2020, that conference is ThinkTank.

For years we have seen (and heard from clients) the value ThinkTank provides attendees; it’s why we continue to host it annually and work so hard to ensure it continues to improve upon itself. We’ve explained below what we find most valuable about the event. Our hope is that you can then use this as a guide for your own business case to join us in Chicago in May.  

An all-access pass that is truly is all access

Our goal is to provide ThinkTank attendees with a best-in-class experience at the most affordable price possible.​

For each and every attendee type (advertiser, agency, publisher, technology partner and blogger), the cost to attend includes much more than just your registration and entrance to the event. That includes five meals (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 1 dinner), loads of high caliber educational sessions and access to top minds in the industry, an offsite Awards reception with dinner, cocktails and after party, a Welcome Happy Hour, professional headshots, chair massages, swag bags, and more.

Find further detailed information about what is included in each pass type on our ThinkTank website.  

Exclusive industry insights and face time with leaders in the affiliate channel

Gain practical skills to improve performance

Each session is designed to provide a comprehensive education on the new and innovative products/technologies/solutions/techniques available on Awin and ShareASale, as well as in the industry. These insights offer attendees the information necessary understanding to further develop their affiliate programs, and provide best practices and training on processes to directly benefit program (and job) performance.

See proven examples of success

Learn from the best in the industry as they share their thoughts and experiences from their time in the channel. These case studies and real world expels will save your business time and money by learning examples of what to do…  and what not to do. Knowledge is gained – and growth occurs – when individuals can get together and share ideas, feedback and experiences.

Futureproof your business

As we enter a new decade, the digital landscape laid out before us seems wholly unpredictable, with many factors out of our control. Futureproofing our businesses has never felt more important, which is why it’s necessary to have discussions around the topics rocking the industry – including consumer privacy, data regulation, advanced attribution solutions, and more. At ThinkTank, we find it critical to equip our attendees with the knowledge needed to overcome these obstacle, so much so that members from our strategic partnerships, product, strategy and legal teams will be on hand this year to help provide this critical information and education.

Face time with current and prospective partners

ThinkTank brings together top partners and key decision makers on the Awin and ShareASale platforms. Our internal team members carefully select the attendees to invite, thereby ensuring the highest quality of attendees and invaluable networking opportunities. View a selection of past attendees and current registrants to get an idea of which brands, publishers, agencies, and speakers you can expect at ThinkTank.

Better yet, select a handful that would be impactful for you to meet with. This is a great opportunity to get in front of both current and potential partners. Just one new partnership could make all the difference for your business and more than justify the cost of your ticket.

Don’t miss your opportunity to join us at #ThinkTank2020. Present your business case and apply to attend today. Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago!
