iGB Affiliate London 2020 proves a huge hit for Double Up Media

London Tower Bridge View

The Double Up Media team kept their finger on the pulse of the iGaming world earlier this month by attending iGB 2020 at London’s ExCel Arena. 

The multi-day conference takes place during the first week of February every year and is very much considered to be the most important event in the calendar for anyone involved in the gambling industry, making it a truly unmissable occasion. 

This year saw thousands of iGaming affiliates and exhibitors flood through the doors of the ExCel looking to network and engage with like minded individuals, and learn from the very best in the business. 

There were over 60 industry leaders from all facets of the digital, finance and legal world all taking to the stage throughout the week to gift attendees a snippet of the knowledge that helped them become so successful themselves. 

Why iGB Affiliate London 2020 was a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills

This year staff took the time to sit in on a number of fantastic sessions held by keynote speakers from around the world. Speakers specialised in important areas of business that the Double Up Media team are focusing on in 2020, such as search engine optimisation, video production and worldwide regulatory changes within the iGaming sphere. 

Speakers included, but were not limited to:

  • Fili Wiese - SEO Expert at Search Brothers

  • Paul Ngoie - Head of Digital Strategy at Contrast Digital 

  • James Brockbank - Managing Director & Founder at Digitaloft

  • Andy Taylor - Commercial Director at Electric House

  • Victor Karpenko - Chief Executive Officer at SeoProfy

  • Nick Garner - Founder at RIZE Digital

These opportunities to further learn new skills could not come at a better time as Double Up Media enjoy continued success and growth, only recently adding a brand new website to our ever-growing portfolio, LuckyGameShows.com

Lucky Game Shows is a brand new website dedicated to showcasing one of the most exciting trends in iGaming, live casino game shows.

Live casino game shows are unique TV-style game show games hosted by charismatic and engaging live presenters that focus on entertaining players as they place wagers on their favourite casino games such as Monopoly Live, Deal or No Deal Live, Lightning Roulette and Dream Catcher.

Work also continues on improving and bringing great new features to flagship site NoWagering.com, such as in-depth slot game reviews and gameplay videos and a new section highlighting the best casinos that meet certain criteria players may be looking for.

A chance to network with valued affiliate partners 

The hugely popular yearly event was used by the team as not only a platform to get a keen insight into all of the ongoing developments within the iGaming industry, but to continue building and maintaining strong relationships with our valued partners from around the globe.

The week kicked off with a fantastic opening party hosted by L&L Europe Ltd at the Dickens Inn in central London in which we were greatly looked after and entertained by affiliate manager Jason Dean, who ensured we were welcomed to the capital in spectacular style. 

The trip was capped off by a memorable night out with our partners from ActiveWins. Affiliate Managers George Scholes, Sukhi Sohal, Chris Dodd and Marketing Director Mark Baker all joined us for a meal and drinks at Gaucho Tower Bridge before a nightcap at the iGB Affiliate Closing Party.

Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games as the conference provided a wonderful platform to meet up with representatives of partner affiliate programs and casinos such as PlayOJO, Volt Casino, PiggyBang and Chilli Casino throughout the week.
