IGB Affiliate Awards Unveils Shortlist Ahead Of Upcoming February 9 Edition

Events media business Clarion Gaming has announced the shortlist for the iGB Affiliate Awards. The awards seek to recognize individuals, brands, games, networks, tech and campaigns, and will take place on Thursday, February 9, at London’s The Troxy.

An integral part of the iGB Affiliate London iGaming event, the awards highlight the “best of the best” across a broad range of 18 categories. The theme, ‘Made in NYC’, will form the backdrop to the black-tie event which comprises a three-course sit-down dinner and an entertainment-packed after-party.

— iGBAffiliate (@iGBAffiliate) December 12, 2022 Naomi Barton, iGB Portfolio Director, said: “Elaine Gardiner, who has a distinguished career in the affiliate world, described the iGB Affiliate Awards as being a celebration of the outstanding talent that exists in the industry and an opportunity for smaller organisations and individuals new to the business to be recognised for their contribution.”

“Certainly the iGB Affiliate Awards categories reflect the talent which underpins the industry and which is driving its development. We have had huge interest across the categories and the quality of the shortlist and the newcomers this year alongside our current customer base reflect an industry that is continually raising the bar in terms of creativity, standards and professionalism,” Barton added. “The Awards are purely for the iGaming affiliate world and are a central part of iGB Affiliate London.”

The event will feature 11,800 square metres of floor space. It is expected to be 22% bigger than the 2022 edition which was held in April. Clarion expects the upcoming show to “eclipse the success of iGB Affiliate London 2022” both in terms of its physical size as well as the number of exhibiting and sponsoring organizations.

“We are on track to exceed April’s total of 176 participating companies, a strong indicator of how much this event is needed and wanted. Our purpose is to champion fresh new thinking with iGB Affiliate London delivering access to new strategies, new partnerships and new sectors, all culminating in new business opportunities,” Barton concluded.
