Arriving at the London Affiliate Conference 2012 in Billingsgate, right by the Monument to the 1666 Great Fire of London – it felt like the place was still burning it was so hot, and we’re not talking about the weather. You could easily mistake this networking event for an iGaming sponsored strip club. Girls advertising Affiliate Boosters walked around with t-shirts made of paint – no, not a bra in sight, and yes, we got pictures. Half-naked green fairies also floated between stands offering golden envelopes, which disappointingly concealed promotional material from The Players Lottery instead of the preferable invitation to their magical bedroom in the back garden.
Once you’d come to comprehend the sights of glittery bosoms and painted nipples nearly poking your eyes out, you quickly became aware that the LAC Conference was absolutely booming with affiliates, and rightly so. Everyone who is anyone was there: Bodog, William Hill, Paddy Power, 888, Ladbrokes, bet365, oh and not forgetting the most prestigious of all: CalvinAyre.com! All affiliates had their own stands, most with built in bars with freshly served beers – ready for any iGamers’ networking needs.
Bodog’s stand was one of the most impressive. An oriental themed chashitsu hut with built-in bar area and adorable Asian ladies on the doors dressed in sexy red Kimonos were awaiting anyone wanting make contacts and exchange ideas, while celebrating the Chinese New Year at the same time.
Betvictor branded poker tables were also set up around the venue allowing plenty of space so the drinking could commence nice and early, which it did. And of course it all kicked off with the pop of beer bottle tops at the our own stand. You can’t deny, where there’s a party, there’s CalvinAyre.com, and that’s probably because we’re the ones to kick it off!
