    Default CAP SpringBreak & Poker Conference 08 Open

    Hi Guys - Its official the doors are open!!! Below is the email I just sent out to past attendees:

    I am really pleased to be able to announce that the registration for both CAP SpringBreak and the Poker Affiliate Conference 2008 is now open and already filling up fast (http://www.event-space.com/capspringbreak/Home.asp).

    If you have had your head in the sand and are not aware of the events taking place in May I have listed below a small description for each one, but please click on their respective websites should you need any further information. The events themselves overlap and are taking place in Cyprus from May 19th - May 24th and form a perfect balance of exhibition, conference and networking events in a luxury resort in sunny Cyprus just a few hours from mainland Europe and 40 minutes from Israel making it an ideal location for an iGaming event.

    Poker Conference 2008 - www.PokerConference.com

    Throughout the past few years, the poker affiliate market has been experiencing exponential growth. Until now, all the industry events however have been broadly focused on the entire online gaming affiliate market. The team at PokerAffiliatePrograms.com is proud to bring you the 1st annual conference that will be focused completely on the poker affiliate side of the business. The Poker Conference will be an interactive 2 day event just prior to CAP SpringBreak and will encompass networking events, roundtable discussions, speaker sessions, a vendor exposition, and of course great parties. What is great about this event is that the conference streams will be split into two with content aimed at both the affiliates and the operators which has never been done before. If you are involved in the poker industry or haven been looking to get into the market this event is essential.


    CAP SpringBreak - www.CAPSpringBreak.com

    For the past 6 years CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com
    have organized a fun, casual networking spring break event in paradise locations ranging from Miami Beach to the Bahamas and 2008 will be no different with the event moving to the sunny shore of Cyprus. CAP Spring Break is not your typical conference. This event not only seeks to educate and influence the industry, but also grows affiliate relationships via friendly networking. It is like no other event you have ever been to before and will change your entire outlook on how a business event should be run - There is no conference or expo just pure networking activities that help bring the industry and community closer.

    Last but certainly not least we have the ASOP (Affiliate Series of Poker) which will be running for the 5th time in Cyprus and with and even bigger bracelet being made and a ticket to the WSOP main event as the first prize it really is an event not to be missed!! The ASOP site is being updated over the next 24 hrs but is open for registration so get over to www.asop.com and register for this unmissable event.

    Oh, and before I sign off cc'd into this email is Marit who is a new addition to the events team and will be around 24/7 to answer any questions or queries you have regarding registration or the event itself.

    We should have a big announcement at the end of this week regarding the event so keep an eye out in your email.

    Thanks and speak soon

    All change for the 5th ASOP at CAP Euro Cyprus
    Following an incredible fourth event in London in January the ASOP (Affiliate Series of Poker) is back and is set to be even bigger and better than ever before

    The ASOP (as seen on the Poker Channel Europe) is an international series of poker tournaments specifically for affiliates. The massive prize pools of $20,000 along with gold and diamond winner’s bracelet ensures the competition is always fierce! But what makes this series really unique is that taking part in the qualifying freerolls is completely free of charge; you just have to be an affiliate registered to attend the offline event where the tournament will take place.

    The next ASOP event will be taking place with a backdrop of sun, sea and surf. The event is being held on the sun drenched holiday island of Cyprus during CAP SpringBreak and the Poker Conference and as always will be filmed and shown on the Poker Channel Europe.

    Unlike previous tournaments though, the field of players is going to be upped to 50 and played as a freeze out following feed back from previous final table qualifiers. Due to legal reasons the organisers are unable to give out cash prizes at this event, however has only ensured even better prizes which now include a seat in the WSOP main event, an even bigger and more bling winner’s bracelet plus paid accommodation in Barcelona for the top 6 finalists.

    Commenting on the ASOP Jeremy Enke, General Manager of PokerAffiliatePrograms.com said:

    "With the amazing growth and recognition of the ASOP tournaments, we wanted to make the poker conference event extra special. So we decided to go "all-in" and give the winner a WSOP main event package, as well as the coveted diamond ASOP bracelet. With over $20,000 in value to the winner, I can't think of a better affiliate freeroll in the history of our industry."

    Since the first ASOP in London back in January 07 the tournament has rapidly grown in popularity with as many as 100+ affiliates trying to qualify in each of the freerolls and with the past champions all looking for a second bracelet this is looking to be the toughest ASOP yet.

    To register for the ASOP go to www.asop.com but don't forget you have to be an affiliate and be attending CAP/PAP events in Cyprus otherwise you won't be approved. For this event the sponsors are Everest Affiliates and AffiliateClub.com who deserve big thanks because it wouldn't happen without those guys. The freerolls themselves will be taking place on the sponsor’s sites from mid April 08 to mid May 08.

    Default Really excited !!!

    I am really excited to be going to the CAP SPRING BREAK 08 and sorry in the same breath to miss out in some of you in Amsterdam. If I may ask all you seasoned affiliates who know me out there "Will you inform me if you are going, so we can meet for a chat over a drink" Once I know who will be there, even at this late time. I could be granted a ticket. If not see you in CYPRUS Cheers Keith

    The event is shaping up to be an awesome event - Don't know if you have seen the PR (below) but Dave "DevilFish" Ulliot has just signed up to be the keynote speaker and hang out at the events - Should be a lot of fun!!

    Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott Makes Song and Dance as Keynote Speaker
    Devilfish to Attend Casino Affiliates Program Spring Break and Poker Conference in Cyprus as Keynote Speaker
    Poker legend and wit Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott has been invited to give the keynote speech at the Poker Conference and Expo and Casino Affiliate Program (CAP) Spring Break conference at the Grand Resort in Limassol, Cyprus on May 21 this year following in the footsteps of the great Doyle Brunson who addressed the delegates last year.

    Described as one of the most feared players in poker, Ulliott, is ambassador for DevilfishPoker.com and a one-man variety show and is sure to treat delegates attending CAP SpringBreak and the Poker Conference to unique insights unlikely to be gleaned anywhere else. His many talents span stand-up comedy and musical entertainment as well as world class poker and a canny business sense.

    Ulliott said, “I never thought I’d see the day where I was a keynote speaker. I’ll have to get cracking on my speech writing now!”

    Ulliot learnt to play cards as a young child and is one of the few players to have both a WPT and WSOP bracelet. Although an extremely successful Hold’em player, he is regarded as one of the best pot limit Omaha players in poker he once laid down a four of a kind to Jon Shoreman who had a straight flush at an Omaha tournament taking place at The Vic in London.

    The Poker Conference and Expo, hosted by PokerAffiliatePrograms.com, takes place from May 19 to 21 and features two separate tracks, one for poker affiliates and internet marketers and a second targeting poker affiliate managers and operators.

    The CAP Spring Break is in its sixth year and this year marks its first visit to Europe. The event takes place from May 21 to 24. Each year hundreds of the most progressive and influential people in the industry descend attend networking events sponsored by leading internet gaming properties.

    More news, more parties - It never stops and this one is the closing one so it will be huge!!!!!! Just make sure you RSVP on this site as this place is major exclusive http://www.playsharepartners.com/invite


    CAP SpringBreak Closing Party Announced

    Fortune Affiliates and PlayShare pool resources as joint hosts of the esteemed closing party for CAP SpringBreak , Cyprus


    The last jewel in the crown of CAP Spring Break 2008 has been secured – party hosts Fortune Affiliates and PlayShare reveal that the infamous closing party slot will take place in Limassol’s VIP club Sesto Senso. One of the Island’s most prestigious and notoriously exclusive clubs is opening its doors to CAP Spring Break for final night celebrations on Friday May 23rd - seeing out the last hours of CAP in ultimate style and poise.


    Fortune Affiliates’ David Sack commented “we are proud and excited to be co hosting the closing party for CAP Spring Break 2008 – it has a reputation for being the biggest, the most raucous, and the most revelatory… and what we have got planned for the Friday night will not disappoint!”


    CAP Spring Break guests will be ushered into the Island’s sexiest club, so popular after opening that it now operates as a Members Only venue. The party will run from 8pm till late, and features an open bar between 8pm – 12.30am where guests can sip their drinks around Sesto Senso’s chandelier-clad dance floor bar.


    This beach-front venue, which is used to playing host to the Island’s rich and flagrant, will give CAP guests the full millionaire treatment with gourmet canapés serving a selection which includes caviar and smoked salmon, and a range of exquisite drinks and cocktails. There will also be a special VIP area for guests of Playshare and Fortune Affiliates.


    Sesto Senso’s 90KW sound system is an immense calling card for the club. Music is driven by the summer sounds of the International club season, of which Cyprus, like its Spanish counterpart Ibiza, plays such an important part, so make sure you have your best party outfit on because this party will go on to the earliest hours!


    Of CAP’s notorious closing parties, CAP Founder Lou Fabiano says “The closing party at CAP Spring break is always a special time –All the deals, friendships, and partnerships are consolidated, and affiliates and operators can let their true colours shine and party as hard as they can one last time.”


    Previous CAP closing parties have always been an expression of the level of high-class entertainment the CAP team procures each year, with previous venues including Miami’s Niki Beach, and Aura nightclub on the world famous Bahamas resort, Atlantis, on Paradise Island.


    Make no mistake, this is THE party to be seen at CAP Spring Break, and with nothing to look forward to but the chilled confinement of your flight cabin home, why not allow Fortune Affiliates and PlayShare to caress away your post CAP blues and treat you to a night at the hands of one of the most desirable club venues in Cyprus.

    Hi All - This should help loads with your trip - It covers anything and everything

    Greeting all CAP & PAP campers!

    With all booking forms taken care of, you can breathe a sigh of relief, recline in your chair, and get thinking about the finer things ahead at the Poker Conference and CAP Spring Break Cyprus 2008.

    To make this easy, we’ve compiled a quick spot-check of all the things you need to put at the top of your suitcase list. Forgetting these may lead to any of the following – a long wait in airport customs, delay to your time at CAP Spring Break, bewilderment that your Cypriate taxi driver cannot pin-point the exact location of the CAP headquarters (we agree with this one), …delay to your time at CAP Spring Break, and a host of happy memories bulldozed by a sunburn patch the size of Cyprus Island!

    So first thing’s first…

    1. CAP Spring Break correspondence confirming your booking with us

    2. CAP Spring Break Printable Schedule Pack (see below)

    3. Passport and travel documents

    4. Check baggage restrictions with the airline

    5. Flight tickets and hotel booking confirmation

    6. Euro currency

    7. Address of the CAP venue, Grand Resort, Limassol

    8. Travel itinerary to the venue

    9. …Sun Screen

    Don’t worry, with the exception of getting here and sleeping here, we’ve got all your bases covered in this handy delegate pack which will tell you all you need to know about PAP, CAP and ASOP Cyprus, how to register, the parties, local amenities, and a few last minute flight and hotel booking options for those booking late.


    BEFORE YOU LEAVE

    And if you still owe payment; please bring along proof of wire transfer and/or credit card to the event as entry can be denied without pre-payment. If you want to pay before arrival, please contact me directly via phone or email and send me your CC details so I can confirm your place.
