GTO Management is excited to be heading for Affiliate Summit at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from February 24th to 26th.
We’ve been in attendance at pretty much every Summit event that has been held and the agenda for Summit West 2008 looks like the best and most topical yet.
It would be way too simple just to show up at Summit and network, so we’ve decided to make sure that we are running around like crazy the whole time in a variety of activities that we’ve either planned ourselves or are participating in.
We’re heavily involved in kicking off Affiliate Summit 2008 on a spiritual high note through the 2nd Annual Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues – presented by the Christian Affiliate Marketing Association. If you are a fan of great food, fellowship and awesome foot-stompin’, clapping till your hands are numb Gospel music, this is the event to catch.
If you are interested in joining us, please visit www.christianaffiliatemarketingassociation.com for details and to buy your ticket. Seats are limited, so don’t dilly dally or you’ll miss out.
SinglesofFaith Las Vegas Workday
We’ll also be participating with our client SinglesofFaith.com in their Inner-city Workday in Las Vegas on Saturday, February 23rd. In this awesome event, we’ll pitch in with SinglesofFaith.com members and local volunteers to serve the needy, hurt and lost as Christ did in Las Vegas – a city that truly is hurting in many ways once you get past the glitz of “The Strip” Anyone who would like to attend and pitch in should email Mike McCartney at mike [at ]singlesoffaith.com
We’ll also be attending the AffiliateClassroomLive affiliate manager training at the Rio. It’s important to keep up on all of the latest info, tips and tricks to help deliver maximum value to our clients. In the affiliate business, if you aren’t learning something new all the time, you are not trying hard enough.
This event is free and if you want to learn about what it takes to manage a program, you should check it out.
There are a number of awesome parties each year at Summit and it looks like this year is no different. If you’d like to meet us in person to discuss how we can help your affiliate program meet and exceed your goals, you can find us at the following parties.
