    Default AffiliateCon Sofia 15-16th May, 2018

    This free to attend event for affiliates is taking place on the 15 - 16th of May, 2018 at the luxury Sofia Event Center.

    AffiliateCon offers two days of serious business, intertwined entertaining breaks and keynote speakers. Hosted in Bulgaria’s capital city Sofia, the location was chosen as much for the buzz as it was for its convenient location. AffiliateCon is not a trade show with big intimidating stands where brands try to outspend each other, but a relaxed networking environment with private meeting areas.

    We believe this style of affiliate convention is destined to become the industry standard for how the online gaming industry meet new and existing affiliates.

    Interesting.

    It is a bit unfortunate that one of your attending brands is Ladbrokes. To me, that kind of goes against the idea that '..the affiliate is the VIP..'.

    I would still probably go though.

    Great Enzika see you there!

    Sidney, our mantra for AffiliateCon is that the affiliates will be treated as VIPs throughout the conference - the brands are there for you!

    I'm not really getting that from the site right now.

    On reflection, there is not a whole lot of interest at this conference so far. Maybe when you flesh out the schedule it will look better. Or maybe I am missing something.

    The program is quite vague to me. I also just see three brands: two brands that are not very friendly to affiliates and a brand that is targeting Norwegian traffic. The week before there's an event in Bucharest, week after an event in Budapest.

    I will go, I think, as it's very close and Sofia is a nice city. It's a free market, so everybody can organise the events they want of course, but to me, there seem to be a bit of overkill. I hope it won't make events less interesting. I prefer fewer events but interesting, than plenty of events but less interesting.

    Wow, wonderful addition, affiliates are VIP so player base stealing and (if I am right) GWPA-banned ActiveWin will be attending.

    Who's next? GVC ? William Hill? Buffalo Partners? Place your bets...

    Any more updates on this? Debating on whether to go. A bit of a hassle to get there.

    Says "site maintenance" for me now.

    Considering the program lineup I think maybe the AffiliateCon name is clever.

    That maybe your view but, Ladbrokes have proven time and time again they don't care about affiliates. If they did, they wouldn't have screwed their USA affiliate partners. Or all the other crooked practices they've employed over the years. Simply put, they can't be trusted.

    But I suppose like all the other conference organisers, Ladbrokes is paying your company cash for their attendance. (A limited number of gaming brands will be invited ).

    So please tell me again how your conference is any different to others, who make money on the backs of affiliates, by the organiser whoring their convention for cash, to unethical affiliate program operators?

    It doesn't look professional at all. What is the exact date of the event? And who are attending? The lack of information isn't professional at all. It seems to be something like "Hey, let's rent a conference room in a hotel, invite some affiliates and try to let some programs pay for attending"...

    Besides that it seem to be more a meeting for rogue programs than a meeting where affiliates are VIPs.

    Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to postpone the first AffiliateCon in Sofia until Spring 2018. We have had to take this action
    due to the dates in September conflicting with other industry conferences in the area.

    We can only apologise for any inconvenience caused by this postponement and we value your interest in attending - your tickets, VIP status &
    other ticket offers will of course be valid for the new dates when they are announced shortly.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    We will be working on providing much better information for the event and take your comments above on board.

    And plain tickets and hotel stays that people might have booked and paid? They're also valid in Spring 2018 ?
