The CouponPal team descended on this year’s Affiliate Summit East at the Hilton New York from August 12 – 14 bringing a combination of high-energy, enthusiasm, and expertise to the Big Apple. This incredible event founded by Missy Ward and Shawn Collins in 2003 attracts the brightest minds in the affiliate world sharing their knowledge and making connections.
CouponPal reserved a booth and brought six members, putting the gang in the middle of the action. When they weren’t busy showing off the redesigned website on their projector screen, you could find them mingling on the floor, wheeling and dealing with industry professionals, and sharing advice with newbies. The crew was so busy that every member ran out of business cards by the final hour.
“Like life, so much of this business is about the relationships you build,” related Co-Founder Scott Elling. “We’re not just out here promoting our website. We make lasting partnerships and build relationships that help the stores, us, and our customers.”
After three long days of conference-going and late-night-networking, CouponPal called it quits and checked out with a stack of business cards the size of Manhattan itself and tons of new ideas to implement.
On behalf of all of us, thank you to everyone that attended and stopped by to say hello. A very special thanks to all the event organizers and staff that made the conference possible!
