Though there have been a few international events that have happened, and one digital industry event that has happened in our country, but an event about affiliate marketing is the first after two years in our country. So definitely looking forward to the industry coming together, sharing knowledge, knowing more about how has the two years been for all of us, finally meeting in person and shaking hands, hugging each other, knowing each other more with face to face interaction”.
She added “Our Indian affiliate industry has gone through tremendous changes and in the past two years also, Indian affiliate companies have pivoted very innovatively and transformed in a very beautiful way. I feel this is an event everyone should look forward to where you come, connect with people who are essentially from India, and people who are travelling from all over the world, for the Indian industry. Every conversation that happens on the IAS premises, will strike a new source of information, and transformation for a lot of companies and individuals.”
