Written by CJ

We're about 7 weeks out from CJU19, and we're already starting to feel a surge of excitement!


For over 20 years, CJ Affiliate has brought Advertisers 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 CJU19.

Before we begin to break down all of the opportunities to network at CJU19, we'd be remiss if we didn't thank our Diamond Sponsor, AT&T.


Networking Starts Now in the CJ Universe

What are you waiting for!? Start booking meetings now in the CJ Universe with the CJU App sponsored by Best Western. Connect with fellow attendees and RSVP to all of your favorite events. Note: In order to access the CJ Universe via the CJU App, you'll need to be registered for CJU19.  




New to CJU?

You don’t have to go it alone! On day one of the conference (Monday, September 9th) we'll have some great opportunities for newcomers:

  • Attend the session, How to Navigate Your First CJU, led by CJU’s Event Director, Suzanne Purcell. Get the run-down on all the happenings at CJU19, an insider’s guide to the venue, and tips for making your first CJU a networking success.
  • Mix and mingle with other newcomers directly after this session at the New to CJU Happy Hour, hosted by ProtogeDR. First-time CJU attendees (and veterans!) are invited to connect over cocktails at The Set bar at the Hilton Santa Barbara.


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 FedEx Office - 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.
  • Global Expo - Join us after the keynote in the Santa Barbara Ballrooms for the Global Expo. This is the place to meet the Publishers, Advertisers, and partners that are driving affiliate growth in new global markets and the US.


Work Hard, Play Hard

These not-to-be-missed evening events at CJU19 are the perfect balance of business and pleasure:

  • Welcome Party - Unwind on the beach after the first full day of CJU with drinks, small bites, local entertainment, and the beautiful Santa Barbara sunset.
  • CJU After Hours (formerly the CJU Funk Zone) hosted by Honey - Held at an awesome offsite Santa Barbara venue (details TBA), this after hours cocktail event will give you a taste of the Santa Barbara nightlife.
  • Cocktail Hour & 1/2 hosted by IHG - This event will jump-start your final evening of networking and fun. Enjoy a signature cocktail and live music with a beachfront view on the front lawn of the host hotel.
  • CJU Awards Dinner & Ceremony - Join us under the stars as we recognize Advertisers, Publishers, and Agencies chosen for their outstanding network performance.
  • After Party - Dance the night away with your fellow marketers and play your odds in the CJU Casino hosted by Piggy.


And that doesn't even include all of our educational sessions and hands-on learning opportunities. It's no wonder year after year CJU is hailed the industry's favorite affiliate marketing event. See you in September!
