2006 World Series of Poker champion Jamie Gold will be the headline speaker at CAP Euro Barcelona, the fourth Casino Affiliate Programs European conference, taking place from September 25-28 in the Spanish city.
2006 World Series of Poker champion, Jamie Gold announced as headline speaker at 2008 CAP Euro gambling conference.
In addition to delivering the keynote speech at the conference, Gold will run a coaching session for Affiliate Series of Poker qualifiers.
"There's no doubt that the explosion of poker around the world is directly connected to the emergence and phenomenal success of online poker", Gold said. "As well as making the game far more accessible, it has taken poker to entirely new levels, has fueled worldwide exposure through mainstream TV sponsorship, and along the way provided tutorage of game play and strategy".
"In short, it has turned the back-room game into front-room entertainment and, more importantly, a seemingly recession-proof global industry. And as the one lucky enough to receive the biggest payout in history, it would be remiss of me not to mention the dramatic effect online poker has had on building the number of major tournaments, players and, of course, prize money."
The last CAP conference, held in London in January, drew 1000 visitors and 45 exhibitors, in what CAP Euro claims was the largest-ever gathering of affiliates in the iGaming sector.
