    Last minute query re. the awards tomorrow/tonight. I wasn't going but have received a late invite (thanks, Martyn!) and just now noticed the info states "extravagant black tie". From what I recall, 'black tie' normally means a tux for the guys (not sure if it means anything other than get tarted up for the ladies). I don't have anything with me smarter than black jeans and a black shirt so I possibly need to get a tux hired in the morning. Is this what I need or am I reading too much into the dress code? I mentioned 'black tie' to the concierge at the hotel and he thought I just needed to wear a black tie!

    the one awards dinner i went to was also a black tie event, many guys wore tuxedos, most wore suits (including me). You'd certainly stand out a bit without a jacket and tie. The real question is whether you or the folks you're sitting with would care.

    Cheers. I just watched the vid of last year's awards and did see a mixture of tux and 'normal' suit, with emphasis definitely on tux. I'll head out in the morning and get something hired so I don't look like a complete tit.

    There is a moss bros just round the corner I think http://www.londontown.com/LondonInfo...oss_Bros/a173/ not sure if we did a deal with them but might be worth mentioning the awards and seeing if there is a discount..... Or if you think you will wear it again I would just buy one. I got mine there 5 yrs ago fro £110 including shirts, bow tie etc. and it costs around £55 to hire I think so much better value long term.... Or if you become a waiter!

    Done the prereg and picked up a tux for the awards tonights. Let's hope I don't burn or rip a hole in it. Or vomit on it. Or fall over in it.

    We're heading over around half seven from Grange Tower Bridge Hotel. If anyone wants to share a cab, let me know.

    Bit more sober now but had a great time. I think special thanks need to go to the following

    Ruairi and julie at betdaq - superb affiliate managers and also absolute top draw company to socialise with - if you aren't promoting betdaq get on it as you won't be disappointed with these guys!!!

    Antony at befred- bang on bloke, sound and always happy to chat

    Ayelet at Titan bet/europartners - great manager that has gone out of her way to help and make are relationship work, although she tried to get me pissed lol

    Karl bet365 - one of the most laid back fellas I've met but knows his stuff big time and great company

    Sarah at betvictor - again good company who speaks honestly and openly

    No one did my head in and was good to meet and talk to everyone but the above people went above and beyond

    A great conference! It was a pleasure to meet a lot of you and put faces to the user names (never what you expect!).

    From thrashing out great deals for promotions, to having a beer later in the night and barely talking about the industry at all - it was all a great experience!

    Until 2013!

    It was definitely an eye opener - much more boobs than I was expecting (although in hindsight I should have guessed ). I think the most interesting part for myself was definitely meeting other folks in the industry.

    I noticed your eyes wondered when we met, but then again we were opposite 3 semi naked ladies.

    Hey,

    I crossed the Atlantic to came to the conference. It was an excellent experience, knowing a lot of nice people, meeting with brands with wich I have been working for a long time, enjoying the beutiful London, etc. I“m actually still here enjoying the city.

    I want to thank some people that where very nicw with me and made me have an excellent stay in London.
    So, thank you Arturo Pizano, from Wagershare for your constantly support, we had fun those days!
    Thank you Uriel and Davin, from Europartners for been so nice with me, it was great to meet you.
    And thank you Dave Merry from Castle Partners, it was a pleasure to meet you and I enjoy the beers we shared!

    Cheers!

    p.d. Where do you recommend me to go here in London?

    Go to Piccadilly Circus and get the bus called "Original Tour". It's brilliant...you get a narrated tour and can get on and off at all the sights and make a day of it. ( The busses have heaters ) Easily the best way to see London - then you see everything. Plus they have a 2-day ticket for the price of a one-day ticket through February.

    Both London events I've been to had 0 boobs.
    In fact I dont remember seeing boobs since barcelona in 08.. They aren't a regular thing these days.
