After the awards, we got to hear a powerful keynote from Noah Kagan, Founder of AppSumo.
During the keynote, Noah Kagan gave out over $3,000 of his speaking fee to the crowd, so they could chat with their new relationships and buy small gifts, based on the interests of their conference friends.
The final day of Affiliate Summit West 2015 also featured a series of breakout sessions and lots of networking in the exhibit hall.
The exhibit hall closed out with a pub crawl, which was a fun way for the crowd to get in one last networking party.
Thank you to everybody who came out to network, learn and have fun with us – there were approximately 6,000 attendees at Affiliate Summit West 2015.
