    You may have had three days of non-stop networking, the siesta’s are getting longer, you still haven’t had enough nata’s and you feel like you just can’t go on, until.. You come down to the closing party and your world has been transformed! Lisbon meets Asia in this fabulous club that assaults your senses and brings the fiesta back to life. Before you know it you’ve networked the night away and all the amigos are back together again.

    The closing night party is where you are most likely to try the ginjinha shot that all your 'amigos' have been trying to make you drink all week. But if that hasn't convinced you to come yet we won't stop there, everyone is feeling good after a long conference, they've let their hair down a little and they are ready to chat with their new contacts, so shake off the siesta funk and get down to the closing party. 

    This is one you don't want to miss.

Affiliates

Also called publishers or webmasters, an affiliate is a person that refers traffic (in this case players) to an operator website, for example pokerlistings.com would refer a player to 888.com. The affiliate is then paid a revenue share or CPA (cost per acquisition) for each of the players they send.

Introducing brokers

Introducing broker is a person or institution who has all the functions of a broker, except to accept money or any type of investment. The introducing broker (IB) usually refers its clients to a dealer and, in return, receives a compensation, such as commissions.

Registering as an affiliate or introducing broker

If you are not sure if you qualify as an affiliate or IB, please email Aaron.Noy@clariongaming.com with details of your business. We will then be able to let you know if you are liable for free entry. If you register as an affiliate or IB under false pretense, we reserve the right to refuse you entry on the day. 

If we are made aware of anyone that has entered the event as an affiliate or IB and is in fact not, they will be asked to leave the venue. They will then be given the opportunity to register again and pay for their delegate place, allowing them to return to the show. If they choose not to do this, they will be refused entry to the remainder of the event and associated parties.

We ask for your help in letting us know immediately if you believe someone has registered as an affiliate or IB who should not have. Please approach any member of the events team who will deal with this in the strictest confidence.

If you are currently employed by an operator, brokerage, supplier or vendor in the industry we cannot issue you an affiliate or introducing broker badge. Please register under the name of the company that currently employs you. If you wish to represent your affiliate side project please contact us once registered under your main employer.

Please remember that we continue to run these events so operators and vendors can meet the best quality affiliates and introducing brokers.

To avoid queueing or elongated administration processes, it is advised that you bring your barcode ticket with you when registering. The e-ticket holds all your details that the staff need to hand you your pass and wristband, so you can enter the exhibition, conference and networking parties.

If you have any queries about your registration, please contact info@igamingbusiness.com

We welcome all applications from the media. Please email haydn.williams@clariongaming.com with your name, the name and address of the media publication, as well as the name of your editor and their contact details.

Once we have confirmed your details, we will contact you regarding whether or not your application has been successful.

Affiliates & Introducing Brokers

Email confirmation will be sent to your inbox once you've registered however please allow 5 working days for us to validate your Affiliate/Introducing Broker status. Your barcoded e-ticket will then be sent to once we have validated your status. We will contact you if your registration has been unsuccessful, as your Affiliate or Introducing Broker status will need to be validated in order to gain entry to the conference. This is standard procedure to ensure that we can continue to provide high quality events completely FREE of charge for all Affiliates and Introducing Brokers. 

Non-affiliates

All payment correspondence will be sent to the individual booking contact of each registration. Confirmation including the barcoded e-ticket will be sent to each individual registered delegate once full payment has been received.

If you did not receive or have lost your e-ticket, please contact info@igamingbusiness.com to be issued a replacement.

Badges can either be collected on the first day of the event at pre-registration between 13:00 - 19:00 at the official hotel or you can pick them up from the exhibition venue from 10:00 on the first day of the conference and from 10:00 on the second day of the conference.
