CAP Euro Shaping Up with New Events Planned
Believe it or not, one of the online casino industry's biggest and most exciting events, CAP Euro: Barcelona,
is now just six weeks away. I want to take this chance to remind all of you to make sure you're registered. It's getting close to crunch time, and if you don't have hotel reservations and travel arrangements yet, now is definitely the time to get that all squared away. Don't wait too long and risk missing out.


As we've been saying, this year's conference is going to be bigger than ever. We're expecting a bigger turnout than ever before, and we've ramped up our events and activities to make sure everyone gets the ultimate affiliate networking experience. Check out the official calendar of events here


And the latest news is that we've ramped up the popular last-day festivities for the new and improved Sunday Session. If you participate, you'll have the choice of either a bus or bike tour of the city beginning Sunday morning, with a delicious authentic Spanish tapas lunch to follow, sponsored by our friends at BrightShare. Read all about it here.
