The second day of Affiliate Summit West 2010 also marked the first time we held two networking events, Affiliate Showcase, where affiliates hosted tables and merchants could sit down and do business with them, and then the Vertical Exchange, where tables were broken up by vertical and affiliates and merchants in the same niche could find one another.

There were many networking events in the evening, but the one I attended was the Affiliate Summit Trivia Tweetup.

There were dozens of us broken up into four teams to battle it out on Trivial Pursuit on the Wii.

All four teams got each of the six wedges, but there could be only one champion.

Thanks to everybody that came out for some networking and brain bending. These trivia titans all got a gold pass to Affiliate Summit East 2010 for participating.

Off to day three!
