Mobile networking rising at gaming events

10 October 2011

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Shortly after releasing their networking app for the London Affiliate Conference 2012, iGB Affiliate have announced that delegates will be able to network via their mobile for their upcoming events iGB España 2011 & Sport & iGaming 2011. Schmooze, a free application available on the iPhone & Android App stores, is a user friendly networking tool specifically created for events. The interface makes finding the events simple, searching either by name or location, and once logged into an event delegates can either break the ice by ‘waving’ or sending an instant message.

“The networking app was a huge success. We got some really positive feedback from our delegates at the Barcelona Affiliate Conference, where we launched this free service” stated Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business & iGB Affiliate “The application gives our delegates an extra chance to find the relevant people on the busy expo floor. Each individual can describe exactly what they are looking for, who they are and what they would like to talk about. Best of all, once you’ve downloaded the app, you can simply log in to the next event and start networking straight away with new people months before meeting them.”

In order to network ahead of these events, attendance to the event is required. The next upcoming iGB Affiliate event is iGB España, a niche event dedicated to one of the most lucrative markets available in the online gambling industry; the Spanish speaking sector. A particularly relevant event with regulation in Spain coming through in December, delegates will have a chance to network and break into this market ahead of the end of year changes. The event will be held in Madrid on the 18th-19th of November. More details can be found on www.iGBEspana.com.

Sport & iGaming, the additional event added to the networking app, is a London based event aimed at exploring the relationship between sport sponsorship and online gambling – the market strategies, the brand repercussions, success stories and detailed expert advice. Information on this event is listed on www.SportandiGaming.com. Both events will have a link and details on the Schmooze networking application.

It’s clear that mobile technology, a pertinent and current topic in the online gambling industry, has permeated the delegate experience. With the huge success at BAC, iGB Affiliate will continue to provide this service as long as it gives delegates added-value at their events.

"Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with my first use of your app at an event. I used it at the Barcelona Affiliate Conference. I made two very profitable deals that will shortly cover all of my flight/hotel costs. I am absolutely convinced that I would NOT have made the deals without your app. Both contacts came from using your app at the event. Amazing!" Fox Tucker, Affiliate, http://www.puntmobile.com
