10. LAC is bigger and better and they’ve moved to the Excel 

As you already know, the 2017 London Affiliate Conference 2017 will take place at the ExCeL London for the first time ever. This means that the organizers are able to attract even more exhibitors and affiliate programs for you to start a business relationship with and there will be also more delegates for you to network with.

9.  Attend the industry’s most recognised and respected affiliate awards ceremony

The iGB Affiliate Awards will take place on Saturday the 11th February 2017 and all attendees of LAC 2017 can get a free ticket. The underlying theme at this year’s awards will be MOMENTUM. Next year’s awards will be focused on what companies have done to maintain and grow their position over the last 12 months and how that separates them from the rest of the crowd. The awards are always an entertaining event with an exciting theme, there really is no better way to celebrate the success and progression of the iGaming affiliate industry.

8. Official hotel: Grange Hotel, Tower Bridge

LAC 2017’s official hotel is the Grange Hotel, Tower Bridge, it’s one of the best five star hotels in London. With a great bar, a great atmosphere and gorgeous rooms, the Grange is the perfect place to stay during your visit to London. You’re sure to be able to have those extra meetings on the days before and after the event in a relaxed and comfortable environment. To book your place at the official hotel, get in touch with our hotel booking partner at Ricardo@iGBAffiliateHotels.com.

7. Super easy journey to the Excel 

We know it’s not quite in walking distance, but the journey to the ExCeL is super easy. If you’re staying in London just jump on the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) and it’s a ten-minute ride (and it’s much cheaper than a taxi/cab across London). If you’re flying in, you can fly direct to London City and be at the venue in just a five-minute taxi ride.

6. Everything you could ever want is at the O2 arena (and it’s just an airline ride away)

The LAC 2017 opening night party will take place at Brooklyn Bowl within the O2 Arena, Brooklyn Bowl is a super exciting venue that offers something a little bit different to usual. You can get from the ExCeL to The O2 by taking a 10 minute ride on the Emirates Airline across the docklands. Away from our party, the O2 is a brilliant place for you to treat your team or take out a client for dinner as it also has an extensive catalogue of bars and restaurants.

5. If you’re attending ICE, you can make a week of it! (psst… iGB Affiliate’s are running the affiliate seminar at ICE)

The London Affiliate Conference takes place the day after ICE Totally Gaming. With both events taking place at the ExCeL it is now even easier for you to extend your stay in London to include both events. iGB Affiliates will also be creating the affiliate seminar, looking at Affiliate marketing in the USA, in partnership with Clarion Gaming during ICE.

4. Networking in London is going to be even better in 2017

The networking events at this year’s conference are set to be the most exciting for years. During the opening night party, attendees will be heading to Brooklyn Bowl, a quirky venue in the O2 arena with bowling lanes (yes, the VIP tables will include a private bowling lane). The Saturday night party will be the iGB Affiliate Awards, keep an eye out for an exciting venue and an even more exciting theme.

A lot of other events in the iGaming space claim they attract hundreds of affiliates to their shows, while this is impressive there really is only one show that wins when it comes to attracting  affiliates. The London Affiliate Conference is set to welcome over 3000 affiliates to the Excel over two days of conferencing.

This began due to the company hiring quite a few Lithuanian employees and felt the need to grow at a speedy rate. First to join the Matching Visions team was Agnė Galvelytė in 2018. This opened the doors to the idea of hiring more people and opening an office.

Running the office in Lithuania, will be Matching Visions brand new hire, Alanas Ivšinas. This top affiliate manager joins Matching Visions from the successful Oddschecker Global Media. This is what he had to say:

“After few amazing years at Oddschecker Global Media (ex. iBus Media), it is time for me to take a new step and pursue other career opportunities in the gambling industry. Most in the gaming industry are very well aware about one of the best affiliate networks – Matching Visions, and knowing Dennis personally, made the decision that much easier to make the move.

Lithuania is an amazing country, known for its talented people who are looking for their next steps in the international market. There is no doubt that this market can help Matching Visions create some new ideas and find new opportunities.”

Currently, there are 4 great Lithuanian employees working for Matching Visions and we can only imagine this will strengthen them in many industries. What did, CEO, Dennis Dyhr-Hansen have to say?

“We are always on the look out for the best opportunities. Opening an office in Lithuania was definitely the next step for us as our team is growing quite quickly. We have secured a great spot and are pleased to announce the joining of Alanas Ivšinas to our team.

We have also hired some other great Lithuanian employees and can only see more success on the horizon!”

Jesper Søgaard, CEO of Better Collective, said: “For Better Collective, compliance and responsible gambling have always been core focus areas due to our commitment and vision to empower iGamers. I am therefore extremely proud that we become co-founders of RAIG which I believe can be a game-changer for compliance standards for affiliates and which will ensure a lift of the entire industry in terms of responsible behaviour for the benefit of the users”.

Manchester Betting Affiliate Aims To Take The US By Storm With Launch Of GamingUSA.com

Manchester Betting Affiliate Aims To Take The US By Storm With Launch Of GamingUSA.com

 

Following their success in the UK betting affiliate market, Manchester based firm Moneta Communications have taken their business stateside with the launch of their first American website, GamingUSA.com.

With casino, slots, horse racing and sports websites in the pipeline, GamingUSA.com is the first of what will be many sites that will be geared towards the American market.

The team embarking on a new project will be using their expertise in website and content creation to spearhead multiple sites that will appeal to the betting fraternity.

The sites users will be provided with all the latest information on online gaming and betting availability by state, allowing them to make well informed decisions.

GamingUSA.com is being backed by Fred Done, the renowned businessman and owner of industry giant Betfred.

Speaking on entering the US market, Fred said: “GamingUSA is one of our most exciting projects. The speed at which many states are looking to legalise betting shows that this is a lively new frontier for our industry. With many sports shows now openly incorporating betting lines, it is becoming evident that people are starting to embrace betting on sports and we intend to be at the heart of that.”

The determination to enter the American market was sped up by the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the 1992 Federal Law that prohibited most states from implementing their own betting laws.

This ruling means that more people will be able to bet legally and already more than half the individual states have bills in their respective state legislatures to open up betting opportunities online.

GamingUSA Chief Operations Officer Natalie Merrison said of the launch of the website: “Myself along with Moneta’s experienced CEO Daniel Campbell and our talented team here at GamingUSA.com, are excited to enter the US betting affiliate market.

“Our collective experience and knowledge of the industry means that we are confident that this will be a very prosperous project for all involved. We are thrilled to be bringing a unique betting experience to an American audience.”
