London Affiliate Conference 2013 interview with Shona ODonnell
This year’s LAC will be bigger than ever, we are expecting close to 3,000 delegates which is really exciting.
We are back at Old Billingsgate which is a great venue, very centrally located and just a short walk from both the official hotel The grange St Pauls and the Grange Tower Bridge.
And as its LAC the iGaming Series of Poker is back with big money prizes, the freerolls are happening now so make sure you’ve registered and played to get a seat at the live event.

Due to demand we have expand the event so we will have exhibition and lunch in the lower ground floor as well as one of the conference rooms.
This means that both conference rooms will be much bigger to allow more people to take part in the sessions and learn new skills to help develop their affiliate business.
We’ve also extended the opening times of pre registration on Thursday so that more people can collect their badge and wristband in advance so they don’t have to wait in line to get in on Friday morning, this is also the perfect time to start networking.3. At the Barcelona Affiliate Conference 2012, there were many more companies in forex and binary options with stands. Do you see more of these companies attending the gaming conferences in the future especially LAC?
We are seeing more and more financial trading companies moving into the space, I think it’s because the affiliates in this sector are the best there are and these companies recognize that and want to work with them to improve their traffic and conversation rates.4. What can affiliates expect from attending?
What can they not expect?
We have four days packed with networking from welcome drinks sponsored by Affiliate Republik during pre registration at the Grange and then a decedent opening night party at Sway in central London.
Then we have two days of exhibition, our biggest ever, with great conference tracks from industry experts on topics such as SEO, regulatory updates, social gambling, mobile and the US market including John Freidberg the first Nevada licensed affiliate.
Each day delegates can grab lunch courtesy of BrightShare, they can take part in the iGSOP and enjoy free beers from the bar all afternoon.
And I know that lots of operators are planning some very exciting thinks at the show and have some fantastic give aways but for now my lips are sealed.
On the Friday night we have the iGB Affiliate Awards, which this year is From Russia with Love, this is the only event that really celebrates all the hard work, innovation and dedication our industry has to offer.
Saturday we round off with a glamour party at the London Hippodrome Casino, which is sponsored by the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference, yes we are finally going back, but more about that later).
And as if that wasn’t enough the lovely team at Intertops are once again sponsoring the Sunday Session which takes place at the Grange St Pauls making it easier than ever to pop in and have a final drink before heading home. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
