What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Except for this blog post.
The WhatRunsWhere team had an absolute blast in Vegas. There was certainly no shortage of free drinks at ASW14.

If you are a noobie or a veteran, make sure you have a solid networking game plan ready. Here are a few tips to help you get the most of your conference experience.
1) Check out the exhibitors and sponsors’ list in advance.
This is a no brainer but know who’s going to be there and divy up your list to 2 groups: people you need to meet and those you wish to meet (if you have time). Schedule your meetings in advance but don’t forget to leave room for spontaneous get-togethers. Follow your groups on Facebook or Twitter, read their blogs and interact with them prior to the show.
2) Stay connected.
Are you a newbie? Apply for the Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program and get connected to industry veterans who have attended shows in the past and can show you around.
3) Get social.
Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter. Follow the hashtag #ASW14. Let people know on LinkedIn and Google+ that you will be attending. In bigger cities, there are sometimes pre-Affiliate Summit meetups that are worth checking out just to get a head start on the networking. While at the show, participate by tweeting about the sessions, reach out to other attendees and compliment speakers if they give a kick a$$ presentation.

1) You’ve been a fan of ours for a while now! How did you use WRW and what were your favorite tools? Can you give us examples of how competitive intelligence helped inspire or saved you money on a campaign?
Since paid search is so expensive, I found it really helpful to find media buying opportunities, both by keyword and advertiser. I looked for areas where my competitors repeatedly ran ads. Or, even better, I found tangential, or space-related, traffic sources that were undervalued.
