    Default Budapest Affiliate Conference Thread

    Hi All,

    Now AAC is done we are of course turning our attention to Budapest and as such I am starting this thread as place where you can ask questions re BAC, post comments, and read updates - So feel free to check back any time -

    So first of all the site is live and more importantly the main hotel is now availiable to book Budapest Affiliate Conference We have 250 rooms held with an option to increase this to 350 - It will 100% sell out so make sure you book this ASAP if you intend on going.

    The difference with the hotel this time around is a) its cheaper, b) it includes tax and breakfast, c) it is bang in the centre and d) it has a casino!!!! We will be running free shuttle buses to the event venue in the mornings and back in the afternoons so no worries re the taxis.

    I will keep updating here but its looking dam good at the moment - We have around 30 exhibitors already, some awesome conference sessions and 3 of the 4 networking parties booked.

    At the moment we are hunting out a key note speaker so please post any suggestions and we will do our best to hunt them out

    Budapest is a beautiful city and I think much safer than Barcelona. This should be a good conference, it's on my calendar.

    We'll certainly be there. Really looking forward to it, as it's quite close to where we live.

    Hotel is about 10 - 15 mins from the expo - reason being is that based on feedback from Amsterdam people would rather have their hotel in the centre and travel to the expo rather than have both outside - Problem we have is that our events have got to a size that there is rarely a big enough venue in the centre of a city = BUT:

    1 - We will as mentioned above have shuttle buses running in the morning and afternoon so no need to pay for a taxi

    2 - We have meeting rooms in the expo hall sectioned off, there is also a cafe type place where you can go for meetings away from the expo hall - In addition we have loads of tables etc you can meet at in teh actual hall

    ANother update for you although this will be in our news letter - You can see the full announcement here

    http://www.budapestaffiliateconferen...38-seo-surgery

    Basically we are expanding the SEO surgery panel to run over the whole event and also make it one on one half hour sessions - This is open to affiliates and operators and I would highly recommend it as this is the kind of information and insight that you rarely get free of charge

    Been thinking I just may attend only a 16 hour drive from Greece. I will be in Greece until the 30th of August and maybe could delay my departure date if my son gives me the permit lol.

    Who are the organizers?
