    Question Have you ever been to Spain?

    In October Spain is going to be the place to be for anyone involved in the iGaming industry.

    As has been stated in two separate GPWA announcements posted today, the Barcelona Affiliate Conference (BAC) is taking place October 10-14 and the European iGaming Congress and Expo (EiG) is taking place in Barcelona on October 16-18.

    How about you? Will you be traveling to Spain for either or both of the conferences this year? Have you ever been to Spain before, either for business or for pleasure? If you have, share your stories about what you like best about Spain.

    I have been for business once (it was lovely). Another time I was waiting 12 hours in Madridís airport to get a connecting flight to Chile; I managed to catch the train and spend most of the time going around Madrid. I would love to visit Spain again, but this time for a relaxing holiday!

    I've been to Spain quite a few times - and twice already this year for holidays. Best things about Spain...the food, the drink, the sunshine, the beaches, the sunshine, the relaxed atmosphere, the lovely bars - especially the little courtyard bars all over Barcelona!

    Martyn and I will of course be in Barcelona for the BAC and I can't wait - hopefully it should be a fair bit warmer than the autumnal 6'C it was in England this morning!

    I've been to Barcelona, Madrin and Seville a few times. I'll be honest though, spain isn't one of my favourite countries - not sure why really, just isn't...

    Well I live in Spain and love it.... We'll be at BAC and I'm really looking forward to it. On a side note, The roof of Madrid Barajas Airport is really interesting.

    I am really intrigued now. I will be having a connecting flight in Madrid again in December, so I will make sure to take a look at the roof.

    Ohhh that looks like a very nice design.

    Makes me want so badly to be there but unfortunately I will not be able to go this year. Next years goal is to certainly go to such an event.

    Make sure to check out Segovia and Valencia. They are BEAUTIFUL. Also, if you are going to Barce, be careful on the beach, especially at night. The taxi drivers say that 40%-80% of the tourists get robbed. I did, and I took precautions.

    Also, Ladies, keep your purse in front of you (don't hand them on the back of your chair at restaurants, or behind your back), and DON'T put your purses down in the middle of your dance circle at Opium Mar... Many people got them stolen last time.

    Hope you all have fun. Wish I was going this year... but hopefully see you at LAC.

    I've been to the Barcelona Affiliate Conference but that's it for me. I'd like to take a holiday there and see the sights though.

    I've been to Barcelona and plan to go to Madrid next year. I hope to be able to move to Andalusia one day and enjoy the climate all year long
