    Default Virgin Games Affiliates May '08 newsletter

    Dear Affiliates,

    Welcome to the Virgin Games Affiliates May ’08 Newsletter.

    Sit back, relax, grab a globe and watch the world spin while we take you from Cyprus to Park Lane via Vegas and Nottingham…Not the most obvious round-the-world itinerary we admit, but that’s where May and June take us. And you can’t argue with a calendar.

    Read on!



    The Virgin Games affiliate team attended the first European CAP Spring break conference in Cyprus last week, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Ted and I came back with a few interesting leads, strengthened relations with some of our affiliate partners, a slight tan, and serious liver problems

    We also hooked up with the good people at Wagerworks, Manyee, Jo and Rob, who treated us to an amazing dinner at “Neon Phalaron”, a seafood restaurant we highly recommend to anyone holidaying in the Limassol area of Cyprus.

    Altogether a good event, even though affiliates weren’t probably as numerous as we expected.


    Virgin Games Affiliates has been shortlisted for the much coveted “2008 Gaming affiliate program of the year” award, organized by A4U forum, the largest affiliate community site in the UK.

    More on the awards (extract from the a4uawards website):

    There will be 16 prestigious awards up for grabs on the 5th June 2008. Nine of these will be judged by an independent panel consisting of some of the most experienced practitioners across the sector. With a good spread of Agencies, Affiliates, Merchants, Media Owners and Directors.

    The jury will reward innovation, creativeness, fulfilment of client objectives or desires, effectiveness and other criteria listed within each individual award. There will also be four Publishers Choice awards, chosen by the affiliates themselves through a controlled vote conducted by the 20,000 strong community at

    Official awards website:

    We couldn’t be happier about the other nominees in the gaming category too: there are esteemed friends and highly reputable competition in the shortlist.

    The A4U awards ceremony and dinner will take place at the Sheraton Park Lane, London, on the 5th of June 2008. We count on your support!
