Although it didn't seem like Casino Affiliate Program's CAP Euro London 2009
networking event would ever come to a close (judging by the enthusiastic late
night parties), we all know that every good thing doesn't last forever and must
eventually come to an end. In actuality, CAP London is still wrapping things up
(It officially comes to a close today). The event was a major success as usual,
and according to early reports from those in attendance, the networking parties
were the most memorable (once again, as usual).
Opening night on the 28th served as a stage for the 2008 CAP Awards, which have
become a major black tie event for the online gaming community at large. This
year's awards ceremony took place at probably the most ideal location possible -
The Brewery in London. Not only do they serve some great beer, The Brewery was
recently named "Best Venue" of 2008 by Event Magazine. Accommodating to large
crowds, the setting was ideal for the large numbers of industry professionals
who attended the ceremony.
Awards categories included "Best Casino/Poker/Bingo/Sportsbook/Skill Gaming
Affiliate Programs", "Best Casino/Poker/Bingo Software", "Best
Casino/Poker/Bingo/Sportsbook/Skill Gaming Affiliate Manager", "Best Affiliate",
"Best Affiliate Network" and "Best Affiliate Payment System". As for the
winners, these included Microgaming for "Best Casino Software", Playtech for
"Best Bingo Software", PokerStars for "Best Poker Software" (all of whom we are
proud to say are favorably listed and reviewed here at Online Casino Suite).
What gives these awards even more weight is the fact that they are
democratically chosen by the affiliate gaming community, unlike some other
industry awards divvied out from behind closed doors and thereby inviting the
possibility of bias. However, CAP's President and Founder, Lou Fabiano, was
quick to point out that while each award winner is truly deserving of their
accolade, he wanted to give credit to the "stellar community" of 8,000+ CAP
affiliates that help make online gambling a professional and respected
industry and pastime.
