The casino affiliate world is returning to one of its original conference hubs in just two months as the 2011 Barcelona Affiliate Conference hits Spain for four days starting on September 8th, 2011.

“After two years in Budapest we are moving our autumn conference back to Barcelona, the original home for this leading European affiliate event for the online gambling industry,” iGB Affiliate reps announced, referring to the original CAP Euro Barcelona affiliate conference that was held in Spain in the previous decade (and which was co-promoted by

This year’s location was decided by a poll taken by event organizers iGB Affiliate (a subsidiary of iGaming Business) via Facebook. Other candidates included Milan, Krakow, and Budapest (the location of the autumn conference for the past two years).

Barcelona has already proven to be a popular choice. Premium sponsors have been lined up, including William Hill as Platinum sponsor, as Gold sponsor, and EGaming Online as Silver sponsor. Mansion Affiliates rounds out the list as Bronze sponsor, taking the mantle from BetUS.

“It’s fantastic having such major brands onboard,” stated Alex Pratt, head organizer for the group. “It’s reassuring to know that not only do we keep providing the best space for these brands to meet and do business with affiliates, but equally that affiliates can come to our event and get a true representation of all the affiliate programs available in the online gambling space.”

Over 40% of the floor space for the event has already been sold, organizers have announced. More than 1,600 delegates are expected to attend the event, which will also provide “two conference tracks on affiliate marketing, an exhibition floor with 70+ exhibitors, and networking socials throughout the event, allowing delegates to enjoy the Catalan capital and make key business connections.”

iGaming Business and iGB Affiliate are coming off of their most successful conference to date, this year’s iGaming Super Show in Dublin. That event had more than 100 exhibitors and sponsors and 2,512 delegates over just two days.

The Barcelona Affiliate Conference will prove to be one of the most important of the year for iGaming affiliates, who, as with all iGB Affiliate events, can attend free of charge. Education and networking are the priorities of the conference, but they offer many other business opportunities, as well.

The Barcelona Affiliate Conference will be held at the Fira de Barcelona, near the city center and beaches. Get more details or register here.
