Certified Online Casinos GuideBy Jon Morrison, Feb 22nd 2008
Although two of the most high-profile award ceremonies of the year collapsed due to the Screen Actors' Guild strike, Casino Affiliate Program celebrated an amazingly successful year for business in the online gambling market with the first ever CAP Awards 2008.
Even if two of the most prestigious award ceremonies of the year distorted because of the Screen Actors' Guild strike, Casino Affiliate Program celebrated a remarkably flourishing year for business in the online gambling market with the first ever CAP Awards 2008.
The CAP Awards, held at Chelsea Football Club, Friday 25th January, had more than 1,000 attendees and 45 sponsors. After several days of celebrations, networking, and building complicated sponsor booths, over 500 affiliates and operators witnessed the "capping" of the first ever Casino Affiliate Program award-winners.
The event started with a champagne reception where guests were greeted by âgoldenâ ladies in a spectacular environment with towers of fire, magicians and a Shirley Bassey impersonator.
Yoni Sidi, Managing Director of Webroute services who sponsored the reception and affiliate of the year category commented
"The reaction we've received on the back of our support of the CAP Awards has been awesome. Affiliates are such an essential part of this industry's success and we are pleased to have been part of such a fabulous opening event."
The evening continued with a three-course meal on mirrored tables and after dinner Welsh rogue and comedian Rhod Gilbert took to the stage with "Who cares about these CAP Awards things anyway?" However, Rhod and Michael Caselli got on with the main event and announced the champions of the 14 awards selected by industry peers in an official public vote.
