Calling all affiliates....
Diarise November 20-21 2008 for Marc Lesnick's next Casino Affliate Convention, which will take place in the sumptuous Venetian Hotel and Casino Resort in Macau.
This event will focus entirely on Far East/Asia Marketing and Advertising for the online gaming industry, and the organisers expect 100-200 casino executives to attend the 2008 Macau event.
In May 2007, exhibit space was sold out and over 1 000 executives attended, making this one of the largest i-gaming events in the industry. Approximately 500 affiliates attended this event, which CAC claims was the largest collection of casino affiliates and super affiliates yet.
The 2008 event in Macau includes an additional track: The "Affiliate Convention" In addition to online marketing for gaming, traditional forms of marketing and advertising to the Far East and Asia for retail affiliate operations will be covered.
If you're a certified GPWA affiliate, you get complimentary admission to CAC Macau 2008.
