    Yes, we made contact last night in the thread at AGD listed above and myself and others were really surprised at 'thepichi's' response there.

    Sorry Alex, I won't derail your thread here any more than I already have.

    The first impressions:

    Coffee and beer is ridiculously expensive at the PVA Letnany: 90 Kc. For the same amount you can have a nice beer in the heart of Staremesto, from a normal glass, not some cheap plastic sh*t that actually tastes like ... plastic.
    The open bar period was short. Before that one of the bars gave coffee and beer for free, the other bar didn't. I didn't understand what exactly was going on there.

    The exhibiton was alright, altough I think the Budapest one was better last year.

    The party at Hard Rock Cafe tonight was great, it's a really nice place.

    The latest update, as mentioned by Gambling Guru in http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/for...html#post16197 shows that ipennyslots.com and "thepichi" have cleaned up the stolen contents. In fact, ipennyslots.com is now without any content.

    But I would still like GPWA admin to review the case because "thepichi" is a private member of GPWA and there were stolen contents on ipennyslots.com and "thepichi" brought various fishy arguments to explain the situation in the above thread in the AGD forum.

    I actually thought all of the parties were good, except I think JetBull shot themselves in the foot with theirs because they told everyone there were no tickets left, then 5 minutes later I saw them handing out tickets to affiliates only... Found out about half hour before the party that everyone could get in as long as they showed their wrist band.. So I think the party would have been pumping if they had just let everyone know they could go in the first place... That venue could have held everyone that went to the conference easily I reckon... it was massive.

    The conference part was good I thought.. The second day was busier IMO but I think that's because most people were recovering from Calvin's party and didn't manage to wake up in time for the conference.. I for one got a LOT of business done.. I'm very pleased with the outcome..

    Regarding food I think there was a definite lack of choice... I thought it sucked mostly that you couldn't get free water anywhere...

    Otherwise I think the guys did an awesome job once again.. Was nice to meet a few GPWA-ers that I'd never met before.

    I hope everyone got home safe.. I managed to pick up the flu on the way home (as I heard a lot of people did) so I'm flying high as a kite on meds right now... otherwise my trip home was pretty painless (if you can call 27 hours painless)...

    Looking forward to the next one..

    Cheers

    Not a lot of meaningful feedback - did I miss something?

    The main seminar room was typically noisy. I chanced upon I think room 3 while I was kicking my heels for half an hour. It was situated outside the main rooms and was QUIET. Praise God.

    To tell the truth, in the main room, where the SEO seminars were held, I could barely hear a word. The background noise was horrendous and the speakers did not by and large understand how to use a microphone.

    The "compere", the otherwise likeable London lad who seems to compere all these events and whose name I forget, pushed the "please ask questions" angle way too hard for me. Yes, encourage questions, but do not berate the audience the way he did. An attendee is totally entitled to turn up, sit down and listen. He is not obliged to interact and should not be made to feel uncomfortable if he does NOT interact. Frankly, I thought his level of insistence was well out of order, beguiling fellow though he is. Can he pleased be asked to refrain from this verging on almost threatening attitude the next time.

    Suggestion for seminar leaders: plan for a short Q & A session at the end, unless questions are clearly forthcoming, and have a decent chunk of material to deliver as the main body. If speakers turn up prepared to answer questions but with little prepared content, you'll always risk the embarrassing situations that ensued, where the compere starts to behave like a trapped animal.

    It's like a teacher without a lesson plan: it doesn't work.

    Venue way better than that London Billingsgate hellhole. It still didn't quite match the Budapest setup, but was pretty decent. No signposts from Letnany metro though, it was a bit daunting for those intrepid souls who made their own travel arrangements.

    Thanks to Stickyeyes for providing those free one-on-one site reviews. I hope they did some good business.

    Prague is a wonderful city, Budapest can't hold a candle to it except that in the Danube v. Vltava stakes.

    Did you give this feedback on the survey?

    Might be a good idea..

    Cheers for the feedback this is really useful - If you did put feedback in the survey hopefully someone will have been in contact to acknowledge it and let you know what we will be doing to make the next event fit with this. If you didn't I will forward this on anyway.

    Re the moderator - I will let him know - He hans't actually moderated for us before, he has just sat on panels - His name is Jason Duke or JasonD on a lot of SEO related forums. He has been a massive support for us and has a huge fountain of search marketing knowledge and is massively keen so I am sure he will appreciate the feed back.

    Noise in the seminar room - Thanks for this - We are actually working on ways we can improve this such as putting some kind of "roof" on the seminar room to contain the noise....Watch this space.

    Sign posts - Agreed - Frankly the venue was an absolute pain to deal with and was in an area that was too far from the hotel or at least a place that was hard to get taxis in (even when they assured us they had ordered lots more for us) - The good news is we won't use that venue again. And will work on provding more information on where the venues are with respect to public transport, hotels, etc. in the welcome letter and in the registration letter.

    Thanks again for the feedback - I promise we will always take it on board and try and make the appropriate changes

    Default CalvinAyre.com party 2011- you're invited :)

    Ok guys, just as an FYI, Calvin has decided to put on another party next year during the iGaming SUPER show, but next year the party will be in celebration of our first anniversary and Calvin's 50th birthday and here's the best part...it will be open to all conference attendees. I promise you, this party will be the craziest thing you've ever been to in your life, so please reserve May 25 2011...it's going to be scary.

    Do NOT attend the Calvinayre.com anniversary party May 25, 2011
