    AffCon
    Anyone else ever hear of AffCon06? It's an affiliate marketing conference in October. Doing a search about it brings up mostly sites about gambling affiliate programs but their site doesn't mention gambling affiliates, at least not that I saw. Anyone ever attended an AffCon conference or know who is behind it?

    Never heard of it, and I assume it might be new because there's nothing on the site about previous events, sponsors, exhibitors or speakers.

    They have been calling us to exhibit, but I am leary. I won't exhibit, but I am not sure if I even want to offer to speak or think about attending. Someone with no track record in the industry starting an event.... I would feel more confident if *someone* endorsed it or a partner established in the industry got involved.

    It may be a moot point for us anyway, CafePress is putting together a conference of our own that may be in October, we are scouting locations in SF at the moment.

    AffCookout. I'm hungry. How about a conference that truly represents how some of us work? Like a pajama party or something. With a cookout

    Yup, lol. The CafePress conference was almost set for a traditional hotel/convention center local and the "boss" said, no way. This is the UNconference for the UNconventional shopkeepers and affiliates... So a pajamma party may be in the works.... I'm going to bring that up for the agenda!!!!!

    I think River City Group used to run an AffCon. And I believe the GPWA (Gambling Portal Webmaster Association) and CAP (Casino Affiliate Programs) were somehow involved with it. I remember reading some rants on CAP about Gator being one of the speakers and many affiliates weren't happy about it, and neither were GPWA and CAP.

    That was a couple of years ago though. And not sure if it's the same one. I checked RCG's website and there was no mention of AffCon anywhere on it, that I found anyway.

    It's not been part of GPWA for years.

    We were also looking into AffCon after being contacted about it but were not able to find much out... our first stop was doing a search here and when that came up with nothing we were leery as well. If anyone can vouch for it here, we'd be happy to consider it further.
