iGB Affiliate Awards celebrate outstanding achievements, groundbreaking innovations and creativity
The international igaming affiliate community has until 20 October to provide their submissions for the coveted iGB Affiliate Awards, which recognise the outstanding achievements and groundbreaking innovations that have taken place throughout the sector over the last 12 months.
The winners across 20 categories will be unveiled at a futuristic fantasy-themed, black-tie celebration taking place following the second day of iGB Affiliate (8 February) at the Troxy, a Grade II-listed 1930’s Art Deco music venue which is situated just a short journey from ExCeL London.
Previewing the Awards, iGB Portfolio Director Naomi Barton said: “This is the event where the igaming affiliate community is able to collectively let its hair down after an action-packed opening day at the premier show for the sector, and recognise the success of colleagues and competitors in the sumptuous surroundings of one of London’s most-loved Art Deco entertainment venues.
“Recognised for being the Oscars of the industry, the iGB Affiliate Awards comprise 20 categories, 19 of which are open to the industry to enter or vote on. The remaining category – for Affiliate Idol (aka Lifetime Achievement Award) – is selected by an in-house panel but in a change for 2024 we are now inviting suggestions from the industry. The Awards are free to enter. There is no limit on the number of categories you can put yourself or your company forward for – if you feel you meet the entry criteria, then we want to hear from you!
“As iGB Affiliate prepares to say goodbye to London ahead of the show’s 2025 relocation to Barcelona, we want to ensure that the 2024 Awards will be the best edition yet. Which is why we are pulling out all of the stops with a theme which brings together the worlds of cyberpunk and fairytale as the backdrop to showcasing the creativity which runs through the sector.”
With something for everyone to enter, the Affiliate Awards Categories comprise: Best Casino Affiliate, Best Sports Betting Affiliate, Best Bingo Affiliate, Best Poker Affiliate, Best Crypto Affiliate, Best Streaming Affiliate, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Affiliate Employer of the Year and Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year.

All 18 confirmed judges have signed an NDA to keep submitted information confidential and the winners’ names secret until the event has taken place. They are also obliged to declare any potential conflicts of interest prior to judging. Judges are allocated categories aligned to their areas of industry experience and knowledge, and to avoid potential conflicts of interest.
