It is less than two weeks before the start of the first major online marketing conference of the new year with the three-day Affiliate Summit West conference beginning January 11th in Las Vegas.

Next month’s conference, the 12th so far, is set to draw almost 3,000 attendees making it the largest to date.

As of this morning, Affiliate Summit’s Shawn Collins says there are only 225 registration slots left and he expects the show to sell out by January 5th at its current rate.

In addition to the thousands of attendees at the Las Vegas Rio will be dozens of speakers from companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon, with Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV serving as keynote speaker for the conference.

Vaynerchuck has been a featured guest on shows like the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Nightline because of the success of his online wine show.

A number of panels will also be available to conference attendees including sessions giving tips on SEO and how to improve SERPs, and the risks and rewards of social network marketing.
