On 6-7 July 2022, 5,099 performance marketers from all corners of the globe flooded the gates of Fira de Barcelona Montjuïc to take part in the biggest Affiliate World Europe event to date.

It has been three years since Affiliate World last visited Europe so our team, the attendees, and the exhibitors were thrilled about the long overdue Barcelona affiliate takeover.

Barcelona was the perfect backdrop for a gathering of elite performance and ecommerce marketers. The city’s exuberant atmosphere matched the high-spirited vibe of the conference.

Here are some of the reasons why everyone had a blast at AW Europe:

Attendees Learned Cutting-Edge Strategies From Speakers and Attendees

There were 35+ speeches, mixers, panels, and Q&As where attendees got to take away nuggets of wisdom from other affiliates that are in the trenches day in and day out.

They ran into $1M+ per month advertisers, fastest-growing social networks and traffic sources, marketers who generate over $100k per month, fastest-growing Shopify stores, and lead gen advertisers in finance, solar, insurance, health, and many more.

The speakers were super affiliates, CEOs and renowned industry experts such as Florian Gramshammer (Managing Director, impact), Erin Cigich (CEO, Perform[cb] ), Tobias Allgeyer (Senior VP EMEA, CJ Affiliate), and Sarah Gulbrandsen (CEO, RingPartner).

They offered exclusive insights on:
Facebook ads scaling in 2022 and beyond
the changes in the ecommerce landscape and its impact on affiliate marketing
TikTok launch strategies for media buyers
the future of affiliate marketing
… and more

Attendees Secured Exclusive Offers From Affiliate Networks & Direct Advertisers

The bustling marketplace is where all the action took place. Attendees got to mingle with the top affiliate networks (360Affiliates, Algo-Affiliates, HugeOffers, Supreme Media) and direct advertisers (Supreme Media, Affiliate Edge, PIN-UP Partners) covering every vertical and niche imaginable.

But it did not end there. They discovered some of the leading traffic sources (Outbrain, ActiveRevenue, App-shake), agencies (Across, Andromeda, Cityads), and service providers (dash.fi, Juni, NAGA).

Some even got the chance to speak with a dedicated account manager, cutting exclusive deals on the emerging affiliate tools and products.

The Evening Networking Events Were Incredible (and a Ton of Fun)

As if the networking mixers weren’t enough, Affiliate World also had an array of parties with plenty of opportunities to network while having fun.

After the sun set, thousands of affiliates migrated to the Barcelona harbor to go to Affiliate After Hours at GO Beach Club. There were at least a dozen night events for attendees to connect with each other. And let’s be honest – some of the best networking take place after hours.
