Affiliate Marketing was Alive and Well at Affiliate Summit West 2020

There was truly something for everyone at this year's Affiliate Summit West (ASW) conference. 

Between private parties, a busy meet market, and our brand new donut wall (yes, it's a thing!), CJ was in full force at ASW20.

We kicked off the four-day event by hosting meetings in CJ's private meeting lounge, where we also took walk-ins. It was wonderful to connect with partners old and new, as well as offer a space for our advertisers and publishers to meet face to face.


Meet Market

The floor was buzzing with people ready to meet! If you had a chance to stop by CJ Affiliate's booth, we hope you enjoyed the conversation and walked away with a little bit more affiliate marketing knowledge—and maybe even a CJ-branded reusable straw!


Partner Happy Hour & Session

Thank you to the folks who attended our Happy Hour & 1/2 on Monday. We enjoyed meeting on a more casual level and sharing additional information from our Incrementality Study.

Stay tuned for a recording of this session.


Content Commerce Panel

CJ's VP of Publisher Development, Kelly Merkel, was joined onstage by Jessica Seib (Buzzfeed), Leilani Han (Wirecutter), and Jacqueline Wladis (Condé Nast) where they discussed all things content commerce including what larger content sites look for when choosing to work with advertisers. The biggest takeaway? "Ask your publisher partners what you can do for them. Those are the partnerships that make us the most excited," shared Han.

Stay tuned for a recording of this full session, as well as behind the scene interviews with each of our fabulous panelists.


Exhibit Hall Donut Wall

And if you haven't heard about it, seen it on social media, or tasted it for yourself, quite possibly the sweetest thing we brought to ASW this year was our brand new CJ donut wall on the Exhibit Hall floor. We know social media is flooded with photos, so please tag @cjnetwork on Instagram and Twitter to share some of the sweet, sweet, donut love.

If you missed us (or our donut wall) at ASW, be sure to find us again at Affiliate Summit East this coming July!
