    Wasn't there also a drunk speaker at the same conference that was swearing at people because it wasn't up to his standards?

    LOL

    I'm glad I wasn't there for that one.. although I may as well have been because the same person abused me on another forum for making a small request which was pretty reasonable.

    I heard there was a speaker in Dublin who err.. well.. just babbled on about nothing, and people were leaving, and those who stayed.. stayed to watch a train wreck happen infront of them. Was a masterful piece of self promotion and about really nothing.

    I remember Devilfish was supposed to do a talk at one of the conferences and when he turned up he was massively hungover and couldnt be bothered to do it, so got out a guitar and started singing songs instead.

    That was a classic, it was at the spring break event in Cyprus, he made some crap jokes, played his guitar and then whenever someone asked a question about the site, his CEO beside him would answer as he literally had no idea about the business whatsoever.....complete car crash

    This was my favourite presentation http://www.igbaffiliate.com/resource...blackjack-team it was Dave Irvine from the original MIT blackjack team, just really interesting to listen to.

    By the way I know it's off topic but many people won't know there is a shed load of sessions to watch here on demand http://www.igbaffiliate.com/resources/videos

    How have I missed this thread!

    My favourite memories, in no particular order:
    - The (aforementioned) Dirty Protest
    - The GameOn/Marmalade Bar Crawl - Barcelona '08 (took place after Hodgey's second dirty protest - he missed out)
    - The Ash Cloud Incident - Amsterdam '10 - Becky Liggero 'spilling' a glass of wine over my only pair of trousers. And then laughing about it. Also, Beacon's Fleshlight saga, hanging out with greadygirl and Streak, watching a certain SEO expert haggle for coke and getting talcum powder...
    - The Pizza Bike Incident - London '08 - it was Beacon. Never laughed so much at a gaming conference.
    - The Dive Casino Crawl - Vegas '10
    - The Nightclubs in the Encore - Vegas '10
    - Witnessing Neil Mitchell's dancing - Budapest '10
    - The 'Fight' - London '08
    - My first conference - Amsterdam '06 - too much weed, followed by 'that' boat.
    - Playing the K Club - Dublin '11
    - Watching Adriaan Brink dancing with midgets at CalvinAyre.com's launch party - Prague '10
    - Escaping muggers - Barcelona '08
    - Meeting various GPWA legends over the years!

    This was a good bar crawl. I remember coming back later to a fire engine and a burnt down bar where they were lighting the shots.

    - Playing the K Club - Dublin '11
    What was the K Club?

    - Watching Adriaan Brink dancing with midgets at CalvinAyre.com's launch party - Prague '10
    Watching Adriaan Brink dance on his own on thursday night at the atrium was just as gold.

    - Meeting various GPWA legends over the years!
    This one is my favourite

    My best memories from Barcelona Affiliate Conference (8-11th September):

    #1 Lectures of David Naylor, Kay Schaefer etc.

    #2 Interesting discussions with affiliate managers (especially with Hannan)

    #3 Parties!

    Manage casino and poker related websites of high quality. Can help you in link building

    Well knowing this thread is going miles long, my two cents in.
    Amsterdam I don't remember much...
    Prague was perfect I think thats where I had my first limo ride....
    Budapest I walked into the the wrong hotel room to find a naked guy on the bed with a laptop standing over his "legs" (no idea how my key worked in his bedroom)
    Barcelona this year was epic, since I walked in to what I thought was a design store slash cool bar .... ended up being a brothel (http://www.oxyzen.es/instalaciones.php)
    London has always been more business and cold as hell, but who knows it might surprise me one of these days hehe

    Monica it sounds like you going back to your room is where the party is really at!
    I can't believe that happened to you. And then walking into a brothel in Barcelona (without knowing) because it sounds like your limo ride in Prague was a similar thing. And I thought I was the only girl in there

    I'm looking for you at the next conference I'm at.

    Lol Renee shhh they were almost buying into the the whole "it was an accident" story.
    My hubby is an affiliate and he was with me 2 in Barcelona, he said I am a trouble magnet.... lol Next time we are there I'll take everyone for a drink at Oxyzen
    Limo drive in Prague was nice hehe we had a stacked minibar and everything! Me, Dani and a couple of other AM's from back at VA got a cool tour of the city in it.
    But thinking of that naked man in Buda still gives me the shivers... Who on earth works naked in an hotel room jeeeesh

    Was he bald/had a shaved head? I wonder if it was the same dude who we saw spanking the monkey in his room in London last year.

    Tom - whatever I was doing in a hotel room it was highly unlikely to be spanking the monkey - come on.. you know that!

    In terms of Conference Memories by first visit to Barca wasn't ALL toilets, some of it was quite interesting akshully, as this video shows....

    I wouldn't necessarily believe this Monica. Hodgey has been known to be full of sh*t and uncontrollably release it at conferences. This was some of the verbal variety he came out with
