I'm very pleased to announce that the GPWA will be working together with Clarion Gaming this fall at the EiG conference. The EiG conference will be held in Barcelona again this year (September 23-25) with a number of changes that are great news for the entire affiliate community.

This year a new feature called the Affiliate Zone is being added to the EiG conference. The affiliate zone will include both a networking lounge and a seminar theatre.

The Affiliate Zone networking lounge will provide affiliates with a comfortable place to meet and relax and gain new contacts. There will be contemporary furniture including large sofas, armchairs and coffee tables. There will be easy access to the Expo bar and wireless Internet access will be provided. GPWA staff will be there to say hi, demonstrate some of the new projects we are working on, and get your feedback. And we'll have a brand new issue of the GPWA Times available for your reading pleasure.

There will also be an Affiliate Zone seminar theatre with two days of conference sessions covering topics essential for successful affiliate marketing. The GPWA will be working closely with our members and with the organizers of EiG to make sure the sessions cover topics that are both interesting and relevant to our members.

Personally, I'm very excited about the plans for EiG this fall. Between the Affiliate Zone, and CAP Euro and all its events that follow, Barcelona will definitely be the place for affiliates to be. And best of all, both events will be free to GPWA portal webmasters.

I'm looking forward to seeing lots of GPWA members and other affiliates at the EiG Conference, and at the Affiliate Zone at the EiG conference, and at the GPWA Conference at the EiG Affiliate Zone!
