The a4u Expo will be taking this week on the 13th and 14th October and I’ll be there in attendance thanks to winning a competition that Kieron Donoghue was running over at his blog called here.org.uk to win a free a4u Expo ticket worth £349.
The a4u Expo is a big 2 day affiliate marketing conference and exhibition being held at the ExCel Centre in London that features over 40 conference sessions and no doubt some tough decisions will need to be made as to which ones you attend as there are some great speakers and sessions being held across both days.
By the end of the competition, there had been such interest in it, Kieron kindly decided to give away two free tickets and I was lucky enough chosen as one of those a4u Expo ticket winners who had left a comment explaining why I’d like to attend and done so in a creative or entertaining way, here’s my comment that I left in full:
With the Think Visibility conferences being the only ones that I’ve attended so far, this would be a great chance to meet some more great people like I have already here “up north”. But I’ve heard that most people tend to just end up talking about ShareMyPlaylists.com!
In terms of the sessions to listen to, Dave Naylor talk some more good SEO stuff (I learnt a lot from his appearance at Think Vis) and obviously I want to hear more about you starting up ShareMyPlaylists.com!
Also, I missed Joanna Butler’s presentation at the first Think Visibility, I’m quite a bit of a stats geek so was gutted when I realised I missed that, another chance to see her talk analytics would be great! – Perhaps it’ll help me figure out how best to feed some of my spotify traffic to ShareMyPlaylists.com!
Oh yeah and obviously I’d be attending the event wearing a ShareMyPlaylists.com T-Shirt and labelling every bottle of beer I drink with a ShareMyPlaylists.com sticker!
You may notice that I mentioned ShareMyPlaylists.com once or twice in my entry, that’s because Kieron is also the guy behind that site where users can quite literally share their Spotify playlists with others and also find new music for themselves.
Thanks again Kieron, I wasn’t planning on attending an event such as a4u Expo until perhaps 2010, but this has allowed me to attend a year earlier, I’ve really enjoyed the Think Visibility conferences I’ve attended so far this year and I’m sure this will be a great experience too where I’ll get lots of value out of the sessions having looked at the agenda in full – I also look forward to meeting other readers of here.org.uk there too!
If you’re also interested in attending and haven’t yet got your ticket, then you’ll need to be quick as there aren’t many tickets left, so register using the banner below!
