If you have been following us on Flickr, we always try to bring you photos of all the event's happenings. Affiliate Summit is the kick off event of the year for our annual conference travels and a time for reflections and looking at the good and the bad of the year before. It's also a great time to catch a cold from the 5,000 attendees and the tens of thousands who were in the city the week prior for CES.
Anyway, we'd like to share some news. Adrants contributor Murray Newlands was honored at the Affiliate Ball with a AFFY award for Outstanding Achievements. The AFFYS have grown is stature over the past several years and have become one of the recognized industry awards to win for individuals. Organizer Darren Blatt said "This (award) is a refection of Murray's hard work in interviewing industry experts and getting them to share their knowledge and incites. We want to honor people who make a major contribution to our industry."
So it's not CareerBuilder deciding not to advertise in the Super Bowl but it is news for us.
