    really happy to announce we have Fantomaster back speaking at BAC - If you don't know who he is you can check out the video from last time he spoke back in 2010 - He is though basically a genuine SEO legend!

    And the other bit of news is that we have two networking party sponsorships confirmed which will be announced imminently! The venues are awesome!

    3 Are there any decent discounts on booze?

    4 Are the people at them normal?

    5 If I cop off with a good looking affiliate manager, will I get a better deal for my site?

    6 If I cop off with a bad looking affiliate manager will I get an even BETTER deal for my site?

    Would love to do this but under strict orders to be home by my wife! We did look a few years ago though as we were going to do an event on a cruise and there were some amazing ones that left Barcelona, even just three days can get you out around the islands
