Stunning venue, great networking opportunities, entertaining after-parties and a city steeped in history, it can only mean one thing…the Barcelona Affiliate Conference.

Coral Connect were one of the many operators demonstrating their services and we can honestly say, it was a pleasure to be exhibiting at such a prestigious event.

The event itself was great in terms of meeting old friends and building new relationships and we can’t thank IGB enough for all their hard work in making BAC one of the best affiliate conferences to date.

If you didn’t have the chance to pop over to the Coral Connect stand, you missed out on the launch of our new website and mobile product. The services went live on the first day of the event so it was squeaky bum time for the Coral Connect team, but thankfully we didn’t experience any problems so delegates had the opportunity to see the service first hand.

The Coral Connect team made a lot of new relationships, who we are really looking forward to working with going forward and our two prize draws, in which we gave away a signed Lionel Messi shirt and a signed Cristiano Ronaldo shirt, attracted over 200 entries over the two days.

The opening day saw the Chief Marketing Officer at Income Access, Sarafina Wolde Gabriel, take care of our first prize draw. Mihai Manoila from was the lucky recipient of the signed Cristiano Ronaldo shirt.

The second day saw a host of delegates all hoping to win the signed Lionel Messi shirt. The prize-draw drew the crowds in, but it was Andy Edwards from, who name was pulled out of the hat.


We can’t finish without mentioning the evening’s entertainment. The opening night saw the Coral Connect team head to the very stylish, Club Astoria. Our thanks must go out to Affiliate Republik for sponsoring the night, which was enjoyed by everybody that attended.

The second night the Coral Connect team headed to the very exclusive club, Otto Zutz. To say that some of the team were regretting partying until the early hours of Thursday night is an understatement, but the team did Coral proud and once again danced into the early hours of Saturday morning.

The final night brought about the closing party sponsored by LAC 2013. Held at Elephant Club, this spectacular setting was Coral Connects favourite venue of the three parties.

The final day saw a very bleary-eyed Coral Connect team head to the Santa Marta Beach Bar to say our goodbyes. We met up with both old and new friends before heading back to the hotel to get ready for our early departure on Monday morning.

Having now seen how beneficial these events are, the Coral Connect team are eagerly planning for the London Affiliate Conference in February 2013.
