Affiliate networking, North American style: CBG Affiliate Weekend 2011
Hey, fellow North Americans: We know there aren’t a whole lot of affiliate networking opportunities on our side of the pond. So, it’s with genuine excitement that we announce that the 2011 CBG Affiliate Weekend is just over a month away.
The 4th Annual CBG Affiliate Weekend will be held from July 15-18 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, at the Fallsview Hilton Hotel, “overlooking the top of the world famous Horseshoe falls and adjacent to the Fallsview Casino.”
“We’ve worked hard again to create what has become a favorite event for many affiliates and affiliate programs,” Judy from CBG told CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com.
“This year we are working hard to create the right balance of helpful sessions and fun social events. Best of all, the events are at the hotel or just across the street.
“One way that helps make the CBG Affiliate Weekend such a successful event is by limiting the number of sponsors attending. This puts less pressure of the affiliates attending and makes it easy for the affiliate programs to meet affiliates over a meal, a coffee break or during the free time that’s built into the schedule everyday.
Sponsors and speakers The CBG Affiliate Weekend is designed to emphasize leisure and networking, but more than just fun and games are on offer.
Search Guru Leslie Carruthers and gaming industry legal expert Stuart Hoegner will offer informational sessions for affiliates and operators.
“Leslie is returning for her second year to talk about SEO and how you can improve your site by learning and following the industry’s best practices,” Judy explains.
“Leslie will also be reviewing three affiliate sites as part of her presentation. If you would like Leslie to review your website, for free, during her SEO session please send your URL to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year’s sponsors include Brightshare, Euro Partners, Fortune Affiliates, Mojo Affiliates, Referback, Sports Interaction, and AffActive, who are holding a contest for a trip to Cancun during the event. Details on that here.
Okay, back to the fun and games …
When you’re done learning, it’s time to party. “Join us in the special CBG game room, where you can not only hear yourself think, but will actually be able to converse with people around you,” Judy adds.
“Come on up, have a few drinks, a little bit to eat and a game of poker, pool, or hockey and meet some other folks in our industry. Come join us in Niagara Falls next month by registering today.”
