I witnessed the first ever Affiliate World Conference in Bangkok, then I attended second Affiliate World Conference in Berlin, missed the third because of some business responsibilities, but here I attended 4th Affiliate World Conference in Berlin again.
Affiliate World Conference is one of the must attend conferences if you are in the affiliate industry.
They had over 2000+ attendees this year, which was 30% more than last year.
The conference was on 14th and 15th June, but I decided to land on 10th June, so that I could explore the city in 3 days.
Although I visited Berlin last year too, but because of my busy schedule, I couldn't explore the city.
This time I landed 4 days in advance.
Last years I booked a nice property via AirBNB, which saved a lot of money.
When you travel to Europe, the hotels are very costly. So I opted for AirBNB once again.
This was the nice property I booked.
I planned to stay from 10th to 17th June, as STM team was flying in a private jet from Berlin to Ibiza on 16th June.
I and my friend Paramjeet stayed there for 6 nights.
I explored the city alone for first 3 days as Paramjeet landed on 13th June.
Here are some of the clicks I captured.
So AWE started on 14th June at a very big place called station-berlin.
To be very frank, this place was not as good as they had last year, but it was more spacious than 2016.
Here is the pic I captured while entering the venue.

later Ella and Attila delivered a nice speech where they shared their story of hitting $300,000 with one campaign in Thailand and how Mr. Attila made over $2 million in 6-7 months by working with AdCombo.
I couldn't attend the 3rd session as I had some meetings with some affiliate managers and an interview with Mr. Attila.
He shared some of the awesome tips about Facebook and COD offers.
There were many after parties at evening so I joined 2-3 of them and had a nice discussion with many affiliate players.
Day 2 was a very busy day for me as I was meeting many companies on their booths and having the discussion with them to get the right offers to promote.
Here were the speeches of day 2:

STM team organized a crazy after party in Ibiza, Spain.
For this party, they selected some of the top affiliate marketers in the world and booked a private plane carrying everyone from Berlin to Ibiza.
For me, this was an achievement.
Sitting with top players in the world and travelling via a private plane.
We landed in Ibiza on 16th evening and directly headed over to a party organized by Gotza, Jamba and MastersinCash team.
Here are few pics I captured in the party.
After party was organized in Ushuaïa Ibiza.
This was the craziest party I have ever seen.
A place packed with 4-5000 people.
Here are the pics from the party.
After attending Affiliate World Conference and after party, I was on a Europe tour till 30th June.
I loved exploring new cities as a solo traveller.
Here are the pics I captured.

Such conferences give you a 360-degree view for the things which are running in affiliate marketing space. By spending the time with people in your industry, you get more ideas and inspiration to do things at a better level.
