[WATCH] Affiliate Grand Slam: inaugural digital marketing conference in Dubai end May

Category: Events GCC

First Affiliate Grand Slam expo is set to bring leading affiliates, marketers, and influencers together for world-class event in the UAE

The organisers, who between them have extensive experience, not only in digital advertising, but also events, have announced the launch of Affiliate Grand Slam.  The affiliate event will be held in Dubai, a festival city at the heart of the UAE’s business and financial centre – merging European and Asian marketing trends for an expert-led conference.

Why so soon and why Dubai? With their swift vaccination rollout, Dubai is at the forefront in reaching herd immunity by end of Q1. This, coupled with the fact that the industry has been craving another conference, encouraged the organisers to forge ahead with the show, whilst adhering to all safety precautions.

The 3-day event kicks off in one of the UAE’s most progressive emirates on the 24th of May, 2021 with a series of networking and registration events – before a content-rich conference and buzzing expo floor take over the city’s luxurious Intercontinental Dubai Festival City hotel on the 25th and 26th of May.  The unique event is geared towards bringing together thousands of like-minded delegates, such as content marketers,  lead generation specialists, media buyers, affiliates, SEO gurus, and influencers for an immersive conference experience. A series of networking dinners will also take place over the two days of the conference.
