1. Hello, Cristina! Please tell us a little bit about the history of creating of AWSummit.

The AWSummit was created in 2014 when the founder understood the need for a conference in the industry that would provide opportunities for networking and business growth. The first event was held in Mamaia, which is a seaside resort in Romania.

Although it began as an adult industry conference, it has now expanded to include other verticals. Currently, it is the only mixed conference that brings together content creators, affiliates, and companies from both: the adult and mainstream spaces.

 In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we pivoted the conference to an online format in 2020 and successfully hosted the first-ever virtual conference. AWSummit 2023 will take place in Bucharest from May 7-9 and in Ibiza from September 21-23

2. How did the AWSummit grow from a small conference to the largest Central European conference?

AWSummit did grow quickly over the years, as more attendees and sponsors participated each year. The event initially expanded to include more verticals in the adult industry, such as live cams and dating, and later grew to include the affiliate marketing side, as well. 

The conference also moved to larger venues in Bucharest to accommodate the growing number of attendees and to facilitate access to the conference for companies from all over the world. Additionally, multiple big companies from the industry have opened offices in Romania in the meantime.

3. What is the format of the AWSummit in Bucharest in 2023?

 AWSummit Bucharest 2023 will be an extraordinary event that spans three days, packed with dynamic panels, engaging seminars, and enriching networking opportunities. 

The centerpiece of the event will be the Expo Center, where two massive stages will feature exciting presentations and discussions on a range of topics. 

Attendees can expect various verticals including affiliate marketing, traffic, lead generation, dating, casino, payments, e-commerce, and more.

4. What’s new your team invented for AWSummit in Bucharest for 2023?

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our concept and offer fresh experiences to attendees. 

For 2023, we have introduced new networking opportunities and created an exclusive area, called Executive Lounge open from 8-9 May, where attendees will be able to interact with executives, and representatives from the biggest companies in the industry, and only Executive Tickets holders will have access to it. Additionally, attendees with Executive Tickets can join us on the 7th of May for the Networking Dinner & After-Party.

Those who want to take their networking skills to the next level and find good contacts in a short time should not miss Meet Market, Speed Presentations, and our networking events during the evening.

5. Is making conferences a profitable business? Was it so in the beginning?

Organizing conferences can be a profitable business, but it can also be risky. In the beginning, the AWSummit was not profitable, and we invested a significant amount of time and money to create a valuable experience for attendees.

However, as the event grew, it became more profitable. It takes a lot of effort and resources to help a conference grow, and it is not an easy task.

6. What does the conference team look like? How many people do you need to prepare for the conference, and what do they do?

Our organization comprises various departments, each with its own set of responsibilities, staffed by highly experienced individuals. 

Dedicated teams work tirelessly throughout the year to meticulously plan and execute our events and it is essential to have responsible people in the team because they make the whole process easier and more efficient.

For any inquiries about company interactions, we recommend reaching out to Roxana Chirila, Co-founder of AWSummit, and Cristina Cernei, Event Manager. They oversee all aspects of our events, from securing sponsorships and exhibitors to organizing the schedule of events and ensuring that attendees have a valuable and rewarding experience.

7. What are the top 5 main verticals at the AWSummit in 2023? Do you see that the main verticals change from year to year? How can you explain this?

Narrowing down to just five main verticals is indeed a challenge, as we offer a diverse range of topics. Our conference covers a mix of intriguing verticals, including but not limited to:

  • Affiliate marketing,
  • Dating, 
  • Traffic, 
  • Lead generation, 
  • Streaming/live cams, 
  • Payments, 
  • Casino, 
  • E-commerce

Our selection of main verticals may vary from year to year, depending on industry trends and the preferences of our attendees.

8. AWSummit agenda highlights the specific vertical — Live cams. Is it popular for affiliates? Why?

While we included the Live Cams vertical in the agenda, it is important to note that the conference is not focused only on this area. While Live Cams may be popular for creators, it is not necessarily the most popular vertical for affiliates.

In fact, in the last years, we have taken care to highlight multiple verticals throughout the agenda to cater to a diverse range of attendees. With two separate stages available, the conference can offer a wide variety of topics that appeal to different audiences. This approach allows attendees to choose the sessions that align with their interests and priorities, whether they are affiliates, creators, or industry professionals from other areas.

Overall, the AWSummit aims to provide a comprehensive and inclusive conference experience that benefits all attendees, regardless of their specific vertical or role within the industry.

  4. SEO, 
  5. Affiliate marketing, 
  6. Dating,
  7. E-commerce.

These topics are broad enough to appeal to a wide audience while still providing valuable insights and strategies for growth and success in the industry.
