London Affiliate Conference (LAC), the world’s largest igaming, forex and binary affiliate conference, is expecting over 5,000 delegates at the 2017 gambling conference in London, and will differ in format from previous years.

The London Affiliate Conference 2017, organized by iGB Affiliate, will take place in the New Year at ExCeL London from February 9th through the 12. According to Online Casino Reports, iGB Affiliate revealed in an email that rather than dividing the conference by industry as in previous years, the 2017 gambling conference will be run by iGB Affiliate via “themed tracks,” designed with a broader relevance for attendees in mind. The tracks will be run during the two main days of the event, on Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11.

The 2017 conference will include the return of the iGB Affiliate Awards and the Financial Partners Expo (FPE); the latter being the largest dedicated expo for affiliates and introducing brokers within the retail finance sector. It provides attendees the opportunity to network with speakers, operators, and affiliates and affiliate managers, while providing the latter and introducing brokers an avenue to launch, grow, and enhance their businesses.

According to the iGB Affiliate, the 2017 LAC is scheduled to include; the Strategic Conference Programme, a 2-day London conference that aims to provide attendees with information via panels and presentations focusing on industry updates, analysis, and trends; networking; and the iGB Affiliate Awards, which is free to all introducing brokers and affiliates to attend.

Two of the affiliate sponsor of the 2017 LAC includes UK-based bookmaker William Hill (LSE: WMH) and Gibraltar-headquartered 888 Holdings (LSE: 888), which operates several high-profile gambling websites.
