The big party at Affiliate Summit West 2011 was the Affiliate Ball, held Monday evening at the Crown Theater, located in the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. My good friend, Darren Blatt, has been hosting events like the Affiliate Ball for 12 years and Monday night proved that he knows what he is doing when it comes to productions like this. Starring Three 6 Mafia, with lead act the Black Rock City Allstars, this party was rocking. I suspect there were about 2,000 people in attendance and everyone seemed to have a great time. This was confirmed the next day by the sparse attendance at the early sessions of ASW11. I have no doubts that these shows will only get bigger as conference attendees become familiar with the name, Affiliate Ball.
