One of the milestones that remind me it’s August each year is the annual pilgrimage to the Hilton in New York for Affiliate Summit East. From August 12-14th, the eBay Partner Network Team will be meeting with partners, attending sessions and catching up with colleagues we haven’t seen since the last Affiliate Summit. Personally, these types of events help me re-energize and remind me why I work in this industry. Spending time with our publishers, exchanging ideas with the industry elite and clearing my head in the bustle of NYC always sends me back to California with a renewed sense of purpose and vigor.
This year we’d like to invite you to a happy hour on Monday, August 13th from 4-6PM at Heartland Brewery (1285 6th Avenue) – just two blocks from Affiliate Summit! The event is open to everyone, but space is limited so we ask that you RSVP if you plan on attending. We did this last year and found that a laid back, intimate setting was just the right environment for having great conversations over a cold beer with current and future partners. We hope to see you there!
If you can’t make it to our happy hour event, we hope you’ll track us down and say hello at another point during the conference. Stop us in the hall, after a session or in the lobby bar – we’re there to connect and we hope we get to do so with you.
For those that are curious, or just want to re-live last year's magic, here are some highlights from our trip last year, including some shots of our happy hour at Heartland Brewery!
Safe travels to New York.
