It’s that dreaded time of the year again. We’re leaving the warm and sunny English shores behind and head off to chilly Barcelona for EIG expo and CAP Barcelona. Not everyone’s idea of fun, but someone has to do it...

Join Lina, Ted and myself at the Virgin Games CAP Euro stand (36). If you’re unfortunate enough to have made the trip to Spain’s icy shores too, we’ll do our best to make you forget you’re there with smiles, freebies, friendly chats and quite possibly a sangria.

For those of you attending the first ever GPWA sponsored Affiliate Zone at this year’s EIG, I'll be roaming the alleys from Wednesday afternoon, and will talking on the affiliate director’s panel on Thursday morning. If the jaw’s not frozen.

For those of you who won’t make the trip, we thank you in advance for your understanding if it takes us slightly longer than usual to answer your queries. Everything will be back in order next Monday.
