The Arab Affiliate Summit 2016 which took place on the 24-25 September in Cairo, Egypt, saw an unprecedented number of renowned professionals, investors, partners and stake holders convene to discuss the rapidly growing affiliate marketing sector.
Now in its third consecutive year, the internationally acclaimed summit provides the first and only platform in the MENA region for networking, partnerships and nourishing the lucrative industry of affiliate marketing.
Muslim Entrepreneur Network (MEN) were invited to the prestigious event and our very own CEO and Founders of MEN, Haroon Qureshi and Com Mirza were amongst the selected prominent speakers who took part in sharing their stories of success, knowledge, expertise and drive for marketing.
Com Mirza stated on his official Facebook video prior to the event that, “There is talent from all over the world here, we have different algorhythms, different strategies, tactics and practical stuff that you can utilise. As you know, to make a lot of money you need to make investments. You have to realise offers dry up, traffic is competitive and nothing is sustainable forever. The only sustainable income is streams that you invest in and I hope to provide you a lot of value”.
Com further stated that, “I had an awesome time speaking to 750 people at the Arab Affiliate Summit in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt we will be back again soon. Might even make some investments into the country and its start-up ecosystem”.
Over 750 affiliates and partners attended the amazing event including 25 key speakers and over 50 sponsors and leading companies such as Microsoft and Flat 6 Labs. The Arab Affiliate Summit was founded by Mahmoud Fathy and Mohammad Khartabil in 2014, with the aim of providing one big platform to bring industry leaders together and create a powerhouse of expertise to learn, connect and inspire.
Arab Affiliate Summit 2016 certainly lives up to the hype surrounding it, with its diverse range of companies and individuals that come together sharing their expertise and providing invaluable resources to all that attend.
The Muslim Entrepreneur Network was delighted to be at the summit where we answered key questions at our official booth and provided people with information on entrepreneurship, offering 30 days’ free membership to our innovative platform.
There were many other companies and sponsors exhibiting their services and products such as Arabyads, Start-Up Muslim, Alkutub amongst many others. For all those interested in expanding their knowledge, creating partnerships and networking there is no better platform in the MENA region than this.
In addition, international companies from all over the world were present and representing their own entities enabling people to seek out new opportunities for further development and growth of their services and products. People wishing to gain an experience of one to one networking, learning and convening with leaders in the industry need to attend the annual summit which is expected to be even bigger next year.
Haroon Qureshi stated that, “I want to say a big thank you to Mahmoud Fathy, Mohammad Khartabil and their amazing team for their outstanding work in organising the Arab Affiliate Summit 2016.The event was organised to the highest level and lives have been truly impacted”.
