AGS matchmakers merge in Manila

Affiliates and operators to reap rewards at the AGS Manila – March 21st to 22nd

AGS is the premier affiliate networking event in iGaming and BC Tech, and March 21st-22nd we’ll be heading to Manila in the Philippines to bring together 200 quality affiliates with six operators making giant strides into the future of the Asian market.

We’re flying in affiliates with premium Asian traffic from all over the world for this special event. It will be an all-inclusive weekend of networking nirvana, held at the luxurious Shangri-La at the Fort hotel in Manila’s Bonifacio Global City area.

Those wishing to benefit from this premier networking opportunity should register here to avoid missing out.

Affiliate Grand Slam

Hosted by operators including FavBet, Hero Gaming, Posh Friends, Royal Panda, and Wunderino, the event comprises two days of exclusive networking and discussions, opening doors to new opportunities for grabbing market share in the fast-growing Asian market.

A dedicated networking area will offer the perfect space for operators to meet and make deals with affiliates.  Alongside the hosts, ShellPay and HasTraffic will be sponsoring the activity.

With conference discussions across topics such as The Asian Landscape: Opportunities and Challenges, AI Applications for Affiliates, and Affiliation and the BC Tech, attendees can expect to leave the two day event with a significant advantage over the competition.

Our top flight speakers will be Rickard Vikström (Chairman – Polar Bear Group), Johan Styren (CEO – Dilanti Media), Oron Barber (General Manager – CoinPoint Services), Veronica Andrino (Global Ambassador – Huobi Global), and Diana Rotaru (CMO – BlockChip). The moderator for panel discussions will be Oliver DeBono (COO – SiGMA).

All our guests will stay at the 5 star Hotel Shangri-La at the Fort, and be treated to lavish dinners at Crystal Jade restaurant and Buddha Bar, where the closing party with 200 fellow affiliates rounds off the weekend.
