Going to be a busy week, not only the day-to-day of running the global corporate monster that is Planet Corp Kft - but on Thursday Erika and I will fly out to Amsterdam for the 'Amsterdam Affiliate Conference'... our first industry event. Thats not all - today we are expecting to welcome Corina to the team and start training for our upcoming foray into the Romanian poker market!
Judging by the conference agenda and feeback from previous meet-ups we are in for a fantastic few days - and as a bonus it is the Netherlands biggest party of the year on Thursday too - the 'Queens Day' public holiday / dress in orange and have a good time day!
There will, of course, be a serious side to all this, want to meet with some affiliate managers and as many fellow affiliates / industry leaders as possible... since we plan on being a big player within the next year or two this is a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for the future by meeting the current movers and shakers... and hopefully meet with some really great people, raise some glasses and have a good time.
So, any affiliates reading this Erika and I will be in the 'Hub Pub' (the Player's Bar in 'Dam square) this Thursday (early, the sponsorship ends at 8) and on Friday too... drop me a mail or comment and we can share a frosty beer and say hello.
The next conference is planned for September and will be right here in Budapest - great!
Gl at the tables, Mark
