Affiliate Grand Slam – A Chat with Wade Tonkin from Fanatics
Welcome to the sixth video release in our Affiliate Grand Slam Duabi 2021 series! After a number of fun highlight videos and features on the OPTIZMO keynote session, we’re in the middle of several insightful chats with OPTIZMO clients, partners, and friends in the industry.
Today, we’re pleased to release Part 1 of a wide ranging conversation with affiliate marketing industry veteran, Wade Tonkin from Fanatics. If you attend Affiliate Summit or various other industry events, you are likely familiar with Wade as a popular speaker on affiliate marketing from an advertiser’s persepective.
We sat down with Wade in Dubai to catch up on the impacts of 2020 both professionally and personally, his thoughts on the future of email marketing (it is very bright!), whether more companies will adopt permanent remote work policies, and some great info on a bucke list trip he has planned for later this year.
About Affiliate Grand Slam
The Affiliate Grand Slam 2-day expo on digital marketing, affiliation, SEO, and influencer trends got under way for the brand’s first international expo this May on the 25th and 26th, with the Dubai summit welcoming a 4,500 strong crowd to the Intercontinental Dubai Festival City.
Alongside AIBC, the company’s emerging tech-focussed event, the AGS Europe expo brought some of the leading creators, thought leaders, and policy makers to its stages, expo floor and judging tables. From digital marketing trends to the rise of influencers and SEO, a series of well thought out conferences and startup pitches ran across the 2-day event, while the company’s long-standing tradition of holding top-notch networking dinners and drinks lit up the evenings around the event.
