The London Affiliate Conference 2017 is getting closer and closer by the day, once Christmas and the New Year’s Eve are done it’s only five weeks away. To help make things more easier for you to justify attending, have a look at the top 10 list with benefits for attending the event.
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.
3. Space at the London Affiliate Conference 2017 is fully booked
iGB Affiliates are delighted to say that all available exhibition space at the 2017 London Affiliate Conference and Financial Partners Expo has been booked in record time. That means you are guaranteed to meet some of the most exciting companies during your visit to London.
2. The conference tracks have been completely revamped to guarantee good content all day long
The organizers are in the process of completely revamping the conference tracks at the London Affiliate Conference 2017. While they can’t give us all of the details right now, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for their full announcement. One thing that we can say is that the changes will make the conference sessions more exciting, more relevant and even more useful to you and your business.
1. The most impressive affiliate attendee numbers in the iGaming affiliate industry
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. Let’s not beat around the bush, there really is no other event in the iGaming affiliate space that comes close to matching our affiliate numbers.
These are the top 10 benefits of attending the London Affiliate Conference in 2017. You can Book your place at the show by clicking here .
