In the past these dinners have been amazing and beneficial. There even have been mimics of my dinner in the past. Ever since my first one in Boston, the IANteract Dinners have been a ritual at every Affiliate Summit. Even at other trade shows, marketers are expecting another IANteract dinner. Just recently at adtech 2012 in NY, networks were asking if my dinner was sponsored and when it was being held.
But I am doing away with the IANteract Dinner and have renamed and will continue the ritual as the DotCom Dinner. The reason for this is because of some new moves I am doing in the online space. I feel DotCom is more fit for what I am moving into and its easily remembered.
The DotCom Dinner will be held during Affiliate Summit West 2012 in Las Vegas and will be sponsored by XRev Media. We will be having the dinner at BOA at the Caesar Palace Hotel. If you have been to one of my dinners before then you know how exclusive these are and how beneficial they can become. Past attendees have networked with programmers, new business partners, new ventures, etc.

These dinners are to intimately network with everyone that are on the same level. Sometimes clubs and bars are not a great place to network, it is always better to network and talk big money over food.
I want to thank XRev Media for sponsoring the DotCom Dinner. They recently had a wicked dinner at adtech NY this month.
