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.

Registering as an affiliate

If you are not sure if you qualify as an affiliate, please email us directly at 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 who should not have. Please approach any member of the events team who will deal with this in the strictest confidence.

Please remember that we can only continue to run these events so that operators and vendors can meet the best quality affiliates if those that should pay for entrance do.

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.

Once your registration has been finalised, you will receive an email to confirm your registration. If you have registered as an Affiliate, please allow 5 working days to receive confirmation of your approval. It is imperative that you bring this along to registration in order to collect your name badge.

Badges can be collected on 28th March at registration. If you are attending the dinner on 27th March, you can collect your badge that evening.

Affiliates: Email confirmation will be sent to your inbox once you've registered however please allow 5 working days for us to validate your affiliate status. We will contact you if your registration has been unsuccessful, as your affiliate  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. 

All other tickets: All payment correspondence will be sent to the individual booking contact of each registration or the main contact of a group 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.
