New York, NY, United States, 2008/03/04 - Casino Affiliates earned an estimated USD $684 million (450 Million Euros) in 2007. The high profit margin affiliate websites have become M&A targets. The April 3-5, 2008 Casino Affiliate Convention in Amsterdam will discuss M&A for the affiliate.
Ticonderoga Ventures, Inc. announces that it will have several presentations on Mergers and Acquisitions at the upcoming annual European Casino Affiliate Convention. The presentations will be for advanced and super affiliates.
The annual Amsterdam Casino Affiliate Convention is the largest conference and trade show for marketing in the online gaming industry. It attracts the highest percentage of gaming affiliates. The 6th annual event is scheduled for April 3-5, 2008 in Amsterdam at the NH Grand Krasnapolsky Hotel.
High revenue producing 'super affiliates' attend Casino Affiliate Conventions in greater than average numbers. At the 2007 Casino Affiliate Convention, it was estimated that super-affiliates constituted 30-40% of the 500+ affiliates that attended. (Definition: A 'super affiliate' at the event earns commissions greater than 7500 Euros each month). As a result, speaker presentations and networking sessions are far more advanced and specific to the online gaming affiliate than they will find at other conferences.
According to the website Gampay, is estimated that online gaming affiliates in 2007 earned USD $684 Million (450 Million Euros). In addition to becoming the largest and most profitable market for affiliates, significant European based corporations have been eye-ing the market. They have also selectively begun conducting mergers and acquisitions with affiliate websites. At the same time, super affiliates are purchasing other affiliate properties. Also, affiliate programs have been actively acquiring affiliate websites.
To assist mid-to-high level affiliates on the process on how Mergers and Acquisitions works, CAC2008 Amsterdam will discuss Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) for both affiliate programs as well as affiliates. CAC2008 will have three M&A experts providing formal presentations on the subject. They are:
Global Leisure Partners - Paul Richardson (Managing Director)
Europa Point Group - Melissa Blau (CEO)
Gamesys - Satya Mahapatra (Business Product Owner)
