Answering the thirst for in-depth expert industry insight, organisers of iGB Live (5-8 July, Amsterdam RAI) have confirmed the addition of two new free-to-attend Masterclasses, each limited to just 30 attendees. The Masterclasses delve into a single subject at a level never-before offered at a conference.
Justin Deaville, who has worked with many of the UK’s leading brands, including Aviva, PaddyPower, Ladbrokes, SkyBet, the Financial Services Forum and the Foreign Office will lead the Advanced SEO Masterclass – an interactive workshop and discussion analysing changes and opportunities from Google’s May core update, and focusing on taking advantage of Google Features to outrank the competition. His masterclass is for advanced SEOs, and requires delegates to already have a solid understanding of the SEO basics. Besides exploring ways to advance in the SERPs, the Masterclass will also look to maximise efficiency as an SEO.
The second Masterclass will be led by Eric Frank of Odds On Compliance. As the former Group Compliance Officer for The Stars Group, Eric managed global compliance teams and served as the principal legal advisor for regulatory, licensing and compliance matters in the United States, Latin America and Asia. His Masterclass, ‘Demystifying the USA affiliate license’ is a 3-hour, step-by-step workshop demonstrating to small and medium sized affiliates how to cost-effectively make and win an affiliate application in the United States. It will walk delegates through the process of obtaining the requisite licensure in the United States to operate as an affiliate, and will show through state-by-state examination, cost benefit analysis, and walking through a demonstration application, that businesses from Europe and beyond can become active in the booming US gaming and betting market.
Curated by Clarion Gaming Chairman and 25-year industry veteran Michael Caselli, the iGB Masterclass format answers a need for in-depth analysis and problem solving. He explained: “iGB Masterclasses are in-depth lectures, made to small groups of attendees who are interested in learning everything they can about a key topic or how to solve a specific problem. Masterclasses are very specialized and niche, and it is precisely that which makes them so valuable for our attendees that are already experts in their fields. There is nowhere else in our industry where experts can gather, learn, examine and discuss their topics at such a level. I believe that it is our duty to continue to deliver content that provides insight and value to our most loyal and expert guests.
“We have chosen Advanced SEO and USA Affiliate Licensure for two very different reasons. Advanced SEO was an obvious necessity as iGB Live! attracts some of the best SEOs in the world. We needed something that went way beyond the basics to service these incredible experts.
“USA Affiliate Licensure was chosen because it is a subject that even expert affiliates find cryptic and laden with misunderstanding. Most affiliates wouldn’t believe that they could become an Authorised affiliate in New York for less than a $1,000 investment, in this Masterclass we will show you that you can. Attendees will see that becoming a legal affiliate in the United States is within their budget and in their interest.
“Being able to work with experts such as Justin Deaville and Eric Frank for months to create the highest level content we have ever organized has been an education in itself. Anyone attending either Masterclass will leave impressed, once again, with what they can learn at an iGB conference!”
The Advanced SEO Seminar, is being held on 6th July (13.30 – 17.30)
Demystifying the USA affiliate license, is being held on 7th July (13.30 – 17.30).
