Who are the big speakers at 2014 London Affiliate Conference

london-affiliate-conference-2014-the-big-speakersThe London Affiliate Conference has a lot more to offer than big parties, although we’ll admit, the parties are pretty good.  In addition to arranging those parties, iGaming Business does their research and uses their connections to get some of the biggest and brightest minds on board as speakers.

The upcoming LAC has some of the best SEOs on deck plus experts speaking on virtual currency, the regulated US market, mobile gaming and more.  Below are some of the biggest names iGaming Business was able to secure and when you can hear them speak at the LAC.

Marcus Tandler, Partner, Tandler.Doerje.Partner

Tandler is one of the best speakers I’ve ever seen in my nine years of industry conferencing.  He has the ability to turn the somewhat dull subject of SEO into an exciting story that teaches you something new and makes you laugh.

His experience in online marketing and SEO is extensive, reaching beyond 15 years and counting.  He’s a popular speaker at a number of high profile conferences outside of gaming and I guarantee you his keynote at the LAC will be worth waking up early for.
