Affiliate business tools conference (Conference room 1, Friday PM)
Essential business strategies for successful small and start-up affiliates (Conference room 1, Friday, 14:00 - 14:30)
Regardless of how new or small your business in terms of resources, there are still fundamental business strategies to follow to ensure you are set up for success. From managing relationships with operators to organising your time and budgets, there is a lot to consider, especially when you’re going it alone.
Our panellists will share their own learning from building businesses from nothing to something to offer you practical insight into the best strategies for success.
eSports isn't just merely another betting option on the 24 hour menu, it should be treated as a major and separate vertical in a similar way to casino and poker.
Industry insights conference (Conference room 2, Friday all-day)
eSports: An insider’s view to success (Conference room 2, Friday 10:45 - 11:30)
Once again, 2016 saw another rise in the popularity of eSports and consequently eSports betting. Not only does this growing vertical attract millennials to betting but also demonstrates the possibility for huge financial revenues over the next few years.
This panel will discuss the latest updates from eSports and demonstrate how traditional sports betting affiliates can translate players to the eSports market whilst also attracting a brand new audience.

Marketing technologies conference (Conference room 2, Saturday PM)
Disruptive technologies: AI and the future of marketing technology (Conference room 2, Saturday 14:30 - 15:00)
It's never been a better or a more daunting time to be a marketer. New disruptive technologies are changing how we shop, how we sell and even how we experience our digital worlds. Artificial intelligence, virtual reality, IoT and augmented reality will fundamentally change the landscape for marketers over the next 5 years. And for affiliate marketers, understanding this new landscape will spell the difference between growth and decline.
In this session, Sentient Technologies CMO Jon Epstein will look at new technologies disrupting marketing today, as well as what's on the horizon. The presentation will inform you about key trends you need to stay aware of and discuss the kinds of impacts they could have on how you work and the results you can achieve.

Paid and social media conference (Conference room 2, Saturday AM)
Implementing paid media into your marketing strategy (Conference room 2, Saturday 11:00 - 11:30)
In affiliate marketing, a lot of our attention and resources are spent on SEO as the only viable option for increasing traffic and conversions. This is particularly apparent in gaming and finance where competition is fierce and consequently, other marketing opportunities can be missed. However, by making smart decisions, paid marketing can offer cost effective and manageable return on investment.
