We're mere days away from CJU23, and we can't contain our excitement!

For over 20 years, CJ has brought advertisers, agencies, and publishers together from around the globe to our annual event, CJU. Enhanced by the vacation vibes of the beautiful Santa Barbara beachfront, you'll find endless opportunities to network and no shortage of fun at CJU23.

Before we begin to break down all of the opportunities to network at CJU23, we'd like to thank our Diamond Sponsor, AT&T, for co-hosting this event with us.


Networking at Your Fingertips in the CJU23 App

If you haven't already, make sure to download the CJU23 app sponsored by Savings United so you can easily connect with fellow attendees and RSVP to all of your favorite events.

Note: In order to access the CJ Universe via the CJU23 app, you must be registered for CJU23.



Reunited and It Feels SO Good!

We couldn’t be more excited to host everyone in Santa Barbara again. To celebrate, join us for a drink at the Welcome Happy Hour at The Set bar at the Hilton Santa Barbara to mix and mingle with friends old and new.


Classic Networking Opportunities

Engage in tried-and-true networking opportunities that provide the time and space to meet with current partners and spark new relationships:

The Zone hosted by Bank of America - This central meeting location will be open throughout the four-day event, making it easy to find a time and place for meetings that fit everyone’s schedule.

Growth Expo - Take a stroll after lunch on Tuesday through Growth Expo to meet the publishers, advertisers, and partners that are driving affiliate’s growth in US and global markets. While you’re at it, grab a refreshing frosé at the Ziff Davis Shopping Frosé Bar and spend some well-earned time unwinding with a massage at The Relaxation Station sponsored by Total Gym Direct


Work Hard, Play Hard

These not-to-be-missed evening events at CJU23 are the perfect balance of work and play:

The Beach Party hosted by Rewards+ by Applovin - Meet us at the beach! A party on the sand is the ideal way to finish out the first full day of the conference. Kick off your shoes and enjoy drinks, small bites, and music as you watch the beautiful Santa Barbara sunset.

CJU After Hours - Held offsite at The Mill, this after-hours event boasts various local wines and beer that'll give you a sweet taste of the Santa Barbara nightlife. Shuttles will pick up at the Hilton at 8:45 PM.

Cocktail Hour & 1/2 hosted by IHG Hotels and Resorts - This event will jump-start your final evening of networking and fun. Create your own signature cocktail and enjoy live music with a beachfront view on the front lawn of the host hotel.

CJU Awards Dinner - Join us under the stars as we recognize advertisers, publishers, and agencies for their creativity and outstanding network performance, and cheers to 25 years of CJ!

After Party - Dance the night away with your fellow marketers and play your odds in the CJU Casino hosted by Slickdeals.


And that doesn't even include all of our educational sessions and Discovery Lab learning opportunities! It's no wonder year after year CJU is hailed as the industry's favorite affiliate marketing event. Check out the full CJU23 agenda to see everything we have in store.
