  1. Nice picks – the good thing for anybody going to sessions is that they will be able to watch them all on video about a month after the conference, so they can see every one either live or on video.

  2. Don’t forget this one. Yes, I copied it straight from the site. I’ve learned a ton about daily deals from Bob myself.

    Building Profitable Partnerships with Daily Deal Sites
    Session 6a
    Location: Gramercy Suite
    Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm

    The daily deal industry presents a new kind of challenge to affiliates. In this session, we’ll discuss the benefits and challenges of working in such a dynamic environment.
