Affiliate World Asia 2018 : A Remarkable Affiliate Marketing Conference

Affiliate World Asia 2018

The billion-dollar affiliate marketing industry is growing rapidly and spreading its wings to cover almost the entire world by creating numerous offline meeting places for the world’s top digital marketers and e-commerce entrepreneurs. One such place is the Affiliate World Conferences, where learners and entrepreneurs from different parts of the globe get to come face to face with the leaders of the internet world.

This article is to give you all an insight into my experience from the recently concluded Affiliate World Asia event that was held in Bangkok last year.

AFFILIATE WORLD ASIA

Affiliate World Asia is a sub-event organized by the personnel from Stack That Money (STM) under the super-group of Affiliate World Conferences. A large scale event at present, the first event in Bangkok was held at a much smaller scale back in 2014.

The STM group decided to take things to a pro level and started the Affiliate Marketing Conferences soon after the STM London event in March 2015, with an objective do a couple of big events every year that brings together the entire affiliate nation together, which so far they have done great!

AWA 2018

The Affiliate World Asia 2018 was a full-fledged affiliate marketing conference that was held over a period of 4 days, in conjugation with 2 more breakthrough events from 4th to 7th December 2018 at Bangkok, Thailand. These events brought together leading names and influencers from various fields of the internet industry like affiliate marketing, digital marketing, e-commerce, CPM, social media marketing and more.

The 4 days event line up at Bangkok this time was as follows:

  • SheCommerce (4th December)
  • AWAsia 2018 (5th and 6th December)
  • E-commerce Mastery Live (ECML) (7th December)

Venue & Arrangements

The event this year was organized on a grand scale at

Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre

LEVEL 22, 999/99 RAMA 1 ROAD, PATHUMWAN, BANGKOK 10330, THAILAND

The previous event in 2107 was already a major success and we were expecting either the same or something bigger this year. Being organized in the same venue as last year, I initially felt pretty nostalgic once I reached the venue. That same vibe, hustle bustle and energy that makes you realize you made the right decision by booking your tickets for the event.

Centara Grand is a really plush venue for such an event and just as I had guessed, there were more than 1,000 attendees for the conference and the venue seemed completely jam-packed. Regardless of the bustling crowd, the volunteers and support crew kept their cool and were excellently supportive when it came to assistance and guidance.  t was clean and hygienic. The availability of refreshments made it even better.

Centara Grand hosted AWA Bangkok for the second year in a row, posting the previous event in 2017. The venue offers great connectivity. From both major airports of Bangkok and is connected to major shopping and entertainment complexes by skywalk. It also offers easy access to the mass transit systems, thus enabling you to travel to Sukhumvit from either of Bangkok’s international airports.

  • The venue is approximately a 45-min drive from Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) with the option of catching a taxi, bus or the Airport Rail Link.
  • The venue is also approximately a 30-min drive from Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) with the option of catching a taxi or a bus.

Sponsors are the backbones of each and any kind of commercial event that takes place anywhere anytime. The conferences of AWA have always backed up by the most popular and leading agencies and organizations in the world of affiliate marketing, digital marketing, CPM and more.

Industry leaders and influencers were catching up, making deals, and forging connections in all this hustle and bustle of the market.
