Are you attending the CAC or CAP Amsterdam conference?
There are two iGaming affiliate conferences scheduled to take place Amsterdam this year. The Casino Affiliate Convention conference is being held on March 30th and 31st. Also, CAP Euro is holding a conference in Amsterdam about one month later on May 1st and 2nd. So we thought it would be interesting to ask if GPWA members are planning on attending either of these events, both, or neither one. We invite everyone to post comments with reasons for their choices. View poll
