Recap of Affiliate Summit East 2016

Affiliate Summit East 2016, which took place July 31-August 2 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City, has come and gone.

It was a fantastic bunch of days of networking, learning, and friends with the awesome backdrop of New York City.

I was chronicling the before, during, and after of Affiliate Summit on Instagram, and here’s how my iPhone said it all went down.
