With 12 weeks to go (yes, 12 weeks!) until PI LIVE 2018 and co-located Influencer Marketing Show, which both take place on October 15-16, the team behind PerformanceIN will be bringing you weekly updates every Tuesday on what to expect at the global performance marketing event of the year.

Following its explosive debut in 2017, which saw over 2,200 performance marketers and a glowing reception from attendees throughout the two-day event at London’s Old Billingsgate, the inaugural event returns bigger and better than before, providing a platform for actionable learning, new connections and industry progression in the world of affiliate and performance marketing.

So, without further ado, here’s what’s happening from PI LIVE this week.

Bring your team with our 25% discount

Yes, you read the headline correctly. To deliver the best experience possible, we’ve introduced an option for you to get 25% discount off your purchase in a single order if you bring four or more members of your team to PI LIVE.

What’s more, if you’re looking to purchase tickets to PI LIVE, whether it be a Basic Ticket, Queue Buster Ticket or Networking Ticket (best value!), you can get 5% discount off your purchasing order simply by tweeting.

You must be signed into Twitter before booking your ticket via the website and hitting the ‘Get 5% Off’ button at the checkout, which will generate your tweet. Hit post, and then just like that you’ve got your tweet and money off your PI LIVE tickets!

Champagne or spirits?

It’s not an event without a party and this year we’re bringing you our biggest after party after the first day of PI LIVE on Monday October 15 at Café de Paris.

We’re just finalising the VIP tables so if you’ve booked your tickets, you’re in for a real treat! However, there’s still one glaring question – Champagne or top-shelf spirits? Head over to our Twitter poll and vote for which drink you would prefer at your VIP booth.

Exhibitors and sponsors

Our list of sponsors and exhibitors is looking spectacular for PI LIVE, with headline sponsors Webgains, Tradedoubler and AWIN already onboard as well as premier and supporting sponsors, including Rakuten Marketing, Button, Impact, Acceleration Partners and just recently rebranded Partnerize.

This week, in particular, we’d like to welcome our new exhibitors Genie Ventures and Uniqodo while also welcoming Marketing Town who are sponsoring our Frozen Yogurt stand.

In addition, we’re pleased to welcome new delegates from Nike, Redu and Groupon, if that wasn’t enough to get you excited for the event this Autumn.

With a 25% increase in exhibitors from last year and limited stands available, we heavily advise getting in touch with the team to get the most of the PI LIVE experience.

Speakers and the agenda

Yes, the agenda! Following a record number of speaker submissions for PI LIVE 2018, we’re over three-quarters of the way to completing this year’s agenda and will be unveiling the full programme within the next couple of weeks. We’re happy to share with you a number of confirmed key sessions, including the science of context with native advertising, Black Friday and the evolution of global retail events, and the evolution of the performance marketing funnel.
