Unwrapped is back for 2014

August 18th, 2014

Unwrapped LogoWith Summer slowly fading away, we turn our attention to the upcoming Christmas season with Affiliate Window’s 5th annual gifts, gadgets and toys sector event, Unwrapped. The event will take place on Wednesday October 1st at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre.

Unwrapped has proven to the be the perfect setting for advertisers to prepare marketing campaigns ahead of the busy Christmas period and introduce their predicted top sellers directly to a selection of our sector-specific and Top 200 publishers.

This year we will be hosting a presentation from eConsultancy’s Senior Analyst Heather Hopkins. She will discuss her view on content marketing, retail sector budgets, best practices and why people are spending more in the gifts, gadgets and toys sector. This will be followed by an always-colourful mini-expo, showcasing new and eye-catching products from a range of our online and instore advertisers.

I really enjoyed the Unwrapped event. The talk by Chris Said was top notch and highlighted some interesting trends for the sector. It is always good to meet up and network with retailers coming into one of their peak times of the year.

Graham Jenner, TopCashBack

SuperGames 2014: Who won this year?

August 5th, 2014

supergames2014_emailWith the Football World Cup, Wimbeldon and The Commonwealth Games all a distant memory, the performance marketing industries athletes were looking for somewhere to get their sporting fix. Enter SuperGames 2014!

At Canary Wharf’s Play On Sports, the industry’s toughest and most competitive contenders, including 7thingsmedia, Vouchercloud, PriceGrabber and O2 came together to battle it out and take home glory to their offices.

All eyes were on the Winners trophy as soon as the players arrived. Each we’re given a complimentary MyProtein water bottle from The Hut Group to prepare for the three gruelling hours ahead.

The tournament kicked off with a sea of team branded shirts spread across the five different sports: netball, football, bowls, table tennis and the highly anticipated, dodgeball.

There was some fierce but fair rivalry taking place across all courts, particularly football and dodgeball. A highlight of the day was the all-in-one ‘last man standing’ game of Dodgeball… where all players from the day battle it out solo to find the, well, last man standing.

Towards the end of the day it became apparent that our very own team the aptly named “AWinners” had taken the lead much to our own surprise. As controversial as it seems, rest assured there was no match fixing within a 100 mile radius of the games ;) DSC_1461netballDSC_1503

The final standings were:

1. AWinners (Affiliate Window)

2. Quidco

3. MoniTigers (Monitise)

4.Cloudia Winkleman (VoucherCloud)

5. Guns, Drugs and Money (GDM)

6. Hoops I did it again (Yieldify)

7. Telefonicats (O2)

8. Now TV

9. Ve Are The Champions (Ve Interactive)

9. PG Galacticos (PriceGrabber)

11. In tribute to lost brogues (The Hut Group)

12. In the B-A-G (BuyAGift)

13. Optimus Performance Marketing

14. TopCashback of the net

15. Zanox Global Destroyers

16. Mish Mash

17. Freemax Mafia (Freemax Media)

18. The Ludes (7thingsmedia)

MyProtein kindly donated a hamper of protein powder, a protein shaker, energy bars and supplements to the winning team, who were also gifted the prized gold trophy. There were also prizes by way of champagne and jugs of beer for 2nd & 3rd place, and the last man (Edwyn McFarlane) and woman (7thingsmedia’s Kat Shaw) standing. Lastly, the ominious wooden spoons we’re reluctantly received by The Ludes.

After the winners were announced, it was time to head to the Henry Addington pub for the after party. War stories were exchanged over some well deserved deep fried food (guilt free of course) and plenty of beers to ‘rehydrate’.DSC_1520

When we asked last year who would rob the reigning champions, GDM’s Guns, Drugs and Money of their trophy, we certainly didn’t think it would be our very own team! So the question remains, who thinks they can pinch it from our (somewhat tight) grasp next year?!

I just wanted to drop a note from everyone on the Quidco team to say thanks to you and the team for organising everything Friday! We had a great day and it was another step up from last year, really appreciate the effort you put in to bring it together. Just gutted we were robbed by you in the final… – Fred Cortvriend, Quidco

A big thank you to everyone who attended this year, and made the effort to get into the #supergames14 spirit. Here’s to #supergames15!
