Macau Affiliate Convention Day Two

Okay I overslept and missed the first session, but certainly enjoyed the next few sessions which dealt with issues such as payment solutions in China, the China Lottery and online gaming in Greater China. The most topical for me being the presentation on payments, presented by Chen Yu from Yee Pay.

Macau Affiliate Convention Day One

Well my first surprise of the day was how many people are here, I guess I’d been expecting 50 or so, but there around 150 to 200 folks here from as far afield as the USA, Australia, Cyprus, Israel and all over Asia.

Which is great for me with their next event being in Macau.I’ve not been to Macau before so this will be a great chance to see a new country and meet people in the Asia region. It’s a two day event with presentations covering a range of topics with the core focus being on how to market in and to an Asian consumer base I’m penciled in for a couple of presentations, though Read More…
