It’s no secret that a lot of the magic of Affiliate Summit East happens off-the-clock, at the countless parties that tend to follow a long day at the exhibition hall. Dotting Manhattan’s West Side, a lot of these parties are more than an opportunity to grab dinner on-the-go through free finger foods–they’re a great way to build deeper relationships with prospects who you may have had a chance to say “Hello” to during the show, but not necessarily, “How are you doing?” So stay up-to-date with our curated list of all the Affiliate Summit East 2011 parties. An official list is being kept here, but here are the ones we have our eye on. If you’re throwing a bash of your own and want us to highlight it, send us an email with the details!
