January 29, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — Today is the big day for the iGaming affiliate community. Not only is today the day that the industry’s biggest event, CAP Euro London 2009, kicks off — it’s also the day when the winners of the second annual CAP Awards will be announced.
“Given the success of the first annual CAP Awards, the glamour-clad occasion’s second outing is very highly anticipated,” stated Alex Pratt, an organizer for the event. “The fact that it’s logistically bigger, better and even more competitive than last year is only increasing excitement within the industry.”
Hosted this evening at London’s The Brewery (http://www.thebrewery.co.uk), a venue that has recently been awarded Event Magazine’s Best Venue 2008, the black tie CAP Awards event honors ongoing success within the online gaming industry. Different from other industry awards, CAP gives affiliate marketing community members the power to choose who is crowned as the winner in each of 23 categories.
The format for the evening is as follows:
7pm Champagne reception
8pm Sumptuous 3-course dinner
9.15pm Entertainment from stand-up comedian, Tony Law
9.30pm Presentation of awards, compered by Michael Caselli and Warren Jolly
11.10pm Drinks & dancing
The CAP Awards recognize superior achievement for Best Affiliate, Best Affiliate Program, and Best Affiliate Manager in the categories of Casino, Poker, Bingo, Sports Betting, Skill Gaming, and Lottery. There are also awards for Best iGaming Software in the categories of Casino, Poker, and Bingo. Rounding out off the awards are Best Overall Affiliate, Best Overall Affiliate Manager, Best iGaming Affiliate Network, and Best Payment System.
CAP officials emphasized that all awards nominations are completely user-driven; employees and management of CAP or PAP had no involvement in the nominations.
