Preparing for the World Cup and Winter Olympics 2018 (affiliates and operators)

The year 2018 will have two main highlighted events in the calendar, the Winter Olympics and the FIFA World Cup. Given the fact that competition is getting the market really crowded, we are anticipating a busy year for operators, software providers and affiliates. The whole industry is already making marketing plans in order to be the top brand which will attract the large volumes.

While top affiliate companies are already gearing up and gathering assets in order to stay ahead in the sports betting segment, a large part of the affiliate industry is already negotiating with the operators in providing a quality bonus structure for the 2 main events. We are creating this panel to give a voice for affiliates who can address their direct messages for the operators in order to facilitate a conversation about the do’s and don’ts of marketing such large events.

The panel is a must attend panel if you are operating a sports betting website or if you are an affiliate that is looking to convert or cross-market in 2018.

Speakers of the panel will be announced soon.
