At the end of July, AvantLink hosted the network’s inaugural networking conference we ingeniously called AvantExpo. This event brought an exclusive selection of top-tier clients from both the affiliate and merchant sides of AvantLink and placed them in a unique, very personal networking environment. The goal was to allow for these merchants and affiliates to have ample time to meet in person and openly discuss and plan ways to work together to take their affiliate marketing results to the next level.
Now, to break the mold of the typical big city conference feel, AvantExpo was hosted in our hometown of Park City, Utah, at the Chateaux Hotel in the Deer Valley Ski Resort. This different environment allowed for plenty of opportunities to participate in unique networking events, including riding alpine coasters and slides, zip lining down mountain ski runs, and beautiful dinners over looking the Park City Mountain Resort.
AvantExpo started on Monday, July 29 and concluded on the morning of Wednesday, July 31. By the conference’s end, all 45 attendees walked away with not only a great experience, but new, highly valuable and very actionable relationships with other top affiliates, merchants and agencies. Thanks to everyone who came out and made AvantExpo 2013 a massive success. It was a great experience getting to spend more time with each of you in person and we look forward to seeing you next year for AvantExpo 2014! We’d also like to take a moment and again thank the sponsors of the event:
We were also lucky enough to have the awesome Michelle Smith from GetUngrounded.com document the entire event and put together the fantastic recap video below. Take a look to get a better feel for the event!
