London, March 12th 2007 - The UK Affiliate Marketing sector is set to get its very own industry specific Conference, Exhibition and Awards with the launch of a4uexpo in October.
The two day event, which will take place at ExCeL London from October 25 – 26, is being co-ordinated by affiliates4u, founders of the widely-respected a4uForum, the UK's No.1 portal for Affiliate Marketing.
Building on a4uForum's successful series of Networking events, a4uexpo will provide a more structured and formal educational Conference programme as well as a carefully-selected Exhibition and dedicated Awards Ceremony.
Matthew Wood, founder of affiliates4u, says: "a4uForum has been part of the Affiliate Marketing scene for the past seven years and has been a pivotal part of the sector, providing a focal point for affiliates to meet, share experience and do business together."
"During this time, the industry has also seen significant development & growth and now worth over ?2bn, it is absolutely the right time for this channel to have its very own professional, educational event."
a4uexpo will represent the only UK-based affiliate specific event and aims to bring together all those working in or around the sector in a professional environment to hear about & debate the key issues currently facing the channel. A full Conference programme will run over both days, with a collection of top speakers working across the sector, as well as specific Workshop sessions.
The a4uexpo Exhibition will run alongside the Conference programme with 50 relevant businesses having the opportunity to showcase their services, and on the evening of October 25, a4uexpo will also hold its own inaugural Affiliate Awards which will spotlight the very best Affiliates, Agencies, Networks, Suppliers and most importantly, the innovation currently found in the sector at present.
Matthew adds: "The a4uexpo Awards won't be token gestures. These Awards will be driven by nominations from those working in the industry and therefore will be a true reflection of the best in the business, the visionary thinking and the expertise & knowledge found out there."
Attendance at a4uexpo will include access to all of the Conference and Workshop sessions, the Exhibition and Awards Ceremony, as well as complimentary refreshments and lunches on both days. Those interesting in attending should register via www.a4uexpo.com.
Matthew concludes: "a4uexpo will be a platform to inform, educate and inspire. Our aim is to provide the industry with its very own event, hence the tagline 'It's your industry, get involved!'. We want to achieve a visionary and inspirational ambience with structured and informal networking, business dealing and fun. But most importantly, we also hope that this event will act to raise the profile of Affiliate Marketing in general."
