Ad:tech New York

October 23rd, 2012 by Talya

Ad:tech New York is coming up again very soon, and we will once again be a part of it. We had a great time at the event last year – of course, as it’s hard not to have fun in New York City! This year, our VP of Business Development, Brendhan Hight, will be heading to the Big Apple for the conference and trade show taking place the beginning of November.

Ad:tech has always been one of our most successful events, so we are happy to be making it there again this year. If you will be in New York for ad:tech and would like to meet up with Brendhan to find out more about what we can offer in terms of mobile advertising solutions, please email him to set up a time and place to meet.

See you in the city that never sleeps!

Date: November 7-8

ad:tech San Francisco 2012

April 16th, 2012 by Talya

We recently exhibited at ad:tech in San Francisco. Ad:tech is one of the leading events for digital marketing, and it takes place annually in cities such as London, New York, Sydney, and elsewhere. We’ve exhibited there several times and always enjoy a reason to go to sunny California. We were able to meet with several of our partners in the Bay area while we were there. As we are headquartered in Berlin, events are a great opportunity for us to have face-time with clients, as most of our communication is done remotely. Of course, meeting with clients will now be a lot easier, as we have a new office in Austin, Texas.

A highlight of this year’s event was having a ready-made stand that was built for us and ready to go at the start of the show. Our usual event prep includes climbing on chairs to put together a stand, and climbing on those same chairs to dismantle it and pack everything back up after the show. So showing up at the show with nothing to build was most definitely nice.  Another high point was, of course, the pub crawl. The pub crawl took place on-site, with several beer stations set up throughout the show floor. You can see photo of two of the Sponsormob team enjoying a beer, as well as other photos of the event on our Flickr page.

ad:tech New York

September 5th, 2011 by Talya

This November, we will once again head to New York City for ad:tech New York. It will be our third ad:tech event this year (San Francisco and London are the others) and we are gearing up for a busy show. This year’s ad:tech New York will take place November 8-10 at the Jacob K. Javits Center (655 West 34th Street, New York). Several interesting speakers have been lined up for the conference, including Facebook’s VP of Advertising and Global Operations, David Fischer, and Wendy Clark, Sr. VP of Integrated Marketing Communications & Capabilities at The Coca Cola Company.

Several of us will be at the event, including our COO, Jet Patel, Verena Witkowski (Head of Publishers), Joe Niederberger (US Business Development Manager), and myself (Talya Shoup Burnett – Public Relations Manager). We will be exhibiting at the event and can be found at booth #1350. Please stop by and see us, or contact me if you would like to set up a meeting with us. See you there!

Sponsormob’s experience at ad:tech San Francisco 2011

April 19th, 2011 by Talya

Several of us recently returned from San Francisco, California, where we exhibited at ad:tech San Francisco. The event was excellent, as it was last year, and we made many new contacts and were able to meet with several of our existing partners. We were also very happy that this year, unlike last year, our entire team made it to the show, thanks to no erupting volcanoes in Iceland or anywhere else. We had a great time and are already looking forward to spending time in San Francisco again next year!

Some of the highlights of the event were …

The Affiliate Marketing Awards

Hosted by Murray Newlands, the Affiliate Marketing Awards were introduced this year during ad:tech and were created to highlight the best in affiliate marketing. Sponsormob won awards for both Best Mobile Campaign and Best Affiliate Innovation. This was a tremendous honor and we are pleased to have been a part of the awards. As there were no official acceptance speeches for the awards, we will be blogging our “speech” within in the next several days, so keep an eye out for this! Pictures of the event have also already been posted and are worth taking a look at (if only to see our smiling faces after winning two awards!).

Networking events

The networking parties are always a big part of any trade show, and ad:tech was no exception. We enjoyed getting out to several of the parties, including Yahoo’s big bash, the party hosted by Engage at The Ambassador, and Advertise.com’s party, among others. The Affiliate Marketing Awards were also a good opportunity to network before the show started.

The city

Business trips of course should never be all work and no play, so we made sure to get out and enjoy San Francisco while we were there as well. For several people on our team, this was a first visit to San Fran. So we packed a lot of sight-seeing into a short period of time and had a great time doing it. We were able to visit Alcatraz, the Golden Gate bridge (one of our guys actually biked it!), Sausalito, and of course, the sea lions at Pear 39. Good eats were on the menu as well, and we enjoyed everything from burgers and milkshakes to Greek food.

So yes, this year’s ad:tech trip was a definite success and as always, we are looking forward to next year’s ad:tech San Francisco! Pictures of the event can be seen on our Flickr page.

Sponsormob makes the short list for the Affiliate Marketing Awards

March 25th, 2011 by Talya

The short list for the Affiliate Marketing Awards has just been announced, and we are excited and honored to be on it! We have been nominated for awards in the following categories:

Best Affiliate Innovation and Best Mobile Campaign.

The Affiliate Marketing Awards will take place at the W Hotel in San Francisco, California, from 6-9 p.m. on April 12 during ad:tech San Francisco event. We are expecting this year’s event to be great, and we are now especially looking forward participating in the Affiliate Marketing Awards as well.

ad:tech San Francisco 2011

March 8th, 2011 by Talya

Next Month we will be exhibiting at one of the best events out there for digital and online marketing – ad:tech San Francisco. This was a very successful event for us last year, even though many of us could not make it due to the volcano in Iceland which grounded flights throughout Europe. Barring any unforeseen weather emergencies, we will be flying to San Francisco from Berlin to exhibit April 12-13 at the Moscone Center for ad:tech San Francisco.

Several of our staff will be at ad:tech San Francisco, including our directors, Peter Glaeser and Jet Patel, Johannes Zimmermann (sales manager), Anne Wiesner (advertiser manager), Verena Witkowski (publisher manager), and myself, Talya Shoup Burnett (PR manager). If you would like to meet up with us, please contact me to set up a meeting (talya@sponsormob.com), or plan on stopping by our booth, #1304.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Sponsormob’s upcoming events

January 20th, 2011 by Talya

Now that ASW is over, we are looking forward to the next events we have scheduled for 2011. We will be quite active this year at trade shows and exhibitions, and the next few months will find us in the UK, Spain, the United States, as well as in Frankfurt, Germany.

London Affiliate Conference

The next opportunity to meet up with us will be next week at the London Affiliate Conference. One of our directors, Jet Patel, will be attending the exhibition to meet with current partners and to connect with new advertisers and affiliates. The event takes place January 27-30 at the Old Billingsgate Market in London.


Peter Glaeser, our other director, will be in Frankfurt, Germany, at this event. M-days is a largest central European congress and trade fair for mobile communications. The date of the event is January 27 & 28 and it takes place at the Congress Center Frankfurt.

GSMA Mobile World Congress

Jet Patel will also be attending the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Mobile World Congress is a massive event covering all aspects of the mobile industry. Over one thousand companies exhibit, and 50,000 participants from more than 200 countries attend. The dates of the event are February 14-17 and it will be held at the Fira de Barcelona.

OM Expo Madrid

Jet will be in Spain again in March for the Online Marketing Expo Madrid. This is another one of Spain’s largest digital marketing events and includes a congress and trade show with more than 100 exhibitors. The event takes place March 16 & 17 in Madrid at the IFEMA Feria de Madrid.

International CTIA Wireless

Our other director, Peter Glaeser, will be in Orlando, Florida in March for the International CTIA Wireless. CTIA Wireless is an event that, in their own words, “brings together wireless and converged communications, wireless broadband, and the mobile web. ” It is attended by service providers, app providers, mobile web companies, and others. It will be held in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center March 21-24.

ad:tech San Francisco

In April we will be not only attending, but exhibiting as well at ad:tech San Francisco. This is an event that we enjoyed last year, even though most of our team was stranded in Europe due to the volcano in Iceland. As long as no natural disasters get in the way of our travels this year, we will be there in full force. The event takes place April 11-13 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco,  and we will be at booth #1304.

iGaming Super Show Dublin

Jet Patel will be in Dublin, Ireland, from May 24-26 for the iGaming Super Show. The 2010 iGaming Super Show was the largest iGaming event to date, so we are looking forward to attending this year, as this is a new event for us. The event hosts affiliates, media, operators, vendors, and regulators and has over 100 exhibitors.

We love meeting new people as well as meeting face-to-face with those we already are working with. If you would like to meet up with us at any of these events, please contact myself (talya@sponsormob.com) or Jenny (jenny@sponsormob.com).

Sponsormob’s upcoming events: exhibitions and trade shows

October 11th, 2010 by Talya

The next few months here at Sponsormob will be fairly quiet as far as external events (trade shows, exhibitions, etc.) go. Since we were recently in New York City for Affiliate Summit East and in Köln, Germany, for dmexco we don’t have any other big events planned before the end of this year.

But no worries, our break from exhibiting at trade shows won’t be all that long, and 2011 will see us out there in the public arena again. We’ll start out the year with a bang at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, at Affiliate Summit West, where we will host a meet market table on Sunday, January 9 2011.

Our next event will be ad:tech San Francisco from April 12-13. We enjoyed the ad:tech event in San Francisco last year, despite most of our people not being able to attend because of the volcano in Iceland that grounded hundreds of flights to and from Europe. (And yes, that was the actual reason for the absence of some of us, not a crafty excuse for missing work!). We are hoping that Mother Nature will cooperate a bit better in 2011 so that we can all get to ad:tech and make the most of it!

Of course, closer to these events we will remind everyone of where we will be and when. In the meantime, we can be found in our Berlin office. For anyone who plans ahead and would like to schedule a meeting for ether event, please contact us.

London ad:tech recap

September 23rd, 2010 by Talya

Our publisher manager, Verena Witkowski, just returned from London, where she visited the ad:tech London exhibition. She had a busy couple of days that were full of meetings and establishing new business contacts. It was a tiring but successful trip, and we look forward to working with new partners!

Dmexco 2010 and ad:tech London

September 20th, 2010 by Talya

Sponsormob participated as an exhibitor at last week’s dmexco,the digital marketing conference which took place in Cologne (Köln), Germany. Six of us where there, and we enjoyed being able to travel by car and rail rather than by plane. It was certainly a nice break from our usual conference travel! The exhibition was a success, with a large number of companies and brands being represented. We managed to give away a lot of great stuff, and our Sponsormob flashlights were probably one of the event’s most popular giveaways (because everyone needs a blue Sponsormob flashlight, right?). We will be posting pictures soon on our Facebook page, so stay tuned …

This week we will be on the road again, as Sponsormob will be visiting ad:tech London. We will not be hosting a booth this time, but our Publisher Manager, Verena Witkowski, will be there both days (Tuesday and Wednesday, September 21-22). She has several meetings lined up already but still has time available for anyone who would like to meet up with her. She can be contacted by email at verena@sponsormob.com
