Alohaaaa! :)


I'm back from gooorgeous Lisbon today! What a wonderful and happy city, with such kind and friendly people!

This is the first year that iGB annual October conference took place here and replaced Berlin (finally!)
Fiera Internacional de Lisboa is a convenient expo space, close to the ocean! Thumbs up for the location!

Was my first time in Lisbon and I always wanted to go, so I stayed a few days extra, which gave me a chance to explore the city and even the near fairytale-ish town Sintra!

For me conference was great, as always :D Thrilled to see many dear and familiar faces and meet new ones, hear what's going on and what new opportunities can we expect here on Casinomeister.

Gotta share my excitement about one of the new upcoming brand called Wishmaker which should be launched anytime soon, approximately in the beginning of November. Team behind the scene is well-known in the branch and by me personally, but the best thing about it is the rewarding system - expect unexpected. Meaning prizes are gonna be something that money can't easily or anyhow buy! Think Serbia is gonna be restricted so I'm not gonna be able to play without hiding, but can't wait to hear from you about it!!

A couple of other awesome brands are planned for joining Casinomeister, like Rolla Casino, Mr Play, Queen Vegas, Bet on Aces and one more, which is not launched yet - so I met their reps and they can't wait to start! Some of our accredited brands are preparing cool things and hopefully promotions for you! It's always more than awesome seeing their reps again!

Amazing thing about this job and industry is that, although there are always many new faces and people, it's still kinda small and lots of people get to know each other and meet through the years, on conferences like this. And there's even more and more conferences around, like every month or so, covering different parts of the world!
Most of the people is so friendly, easy going and cool, so you start having some friends from people you're working with and a big reason to look forward to meeting them again!

So my special thanks and love goes to @Mr Green Affiliates (our beautiful rep Jelena) and @alexCashmio whom I had some delicious dinners with and most of all great time and @LuckyDino whose charming rep and I exchanged some national drinks we brought (in the pic below) :laugh:
I just can't tell you enough how awesome these ppl are!

After the conference, most of the people left, but me and adorable Mandy, who used to be our rep for Breakout Affiliates - soon we'll see here some of other nice brands she represents - were exploring Lisbon and Sintra! Awesomeness, we had sooo much fun and got to see so much! She was so well prepared and planned everything flawlessly!
We even had a fun ride back to Lisbon from Sintra by some old noisy jeep or whatever it was :D

Here is a couple of nice photos I took, although I took plenty of them since everything is so pretty lol

I thought it's better than posting the same pics every time, as the expos all look the same, more or less :)


EDIT: Forgot to write how EPIC the closing official party was! One of the best ever!! Music was just too good and the whole club danced till who knows (I left at 5:30 AM and it was still full) :D From Aretha Franklin, Bee Gees, Barry White, Ottawan, James Brown, A Flock Of Seagulls, Abba to Shania Twain, Daft Punk, JLo (older songs) etc and vice versa!! OMG that was SOOOO GOOD, just missed parties with real music! <3 The whole club danced like one!

Thanks Mark :) It was really though choice to pick only a couple of pics, everything in Lisbon is so pretty!

Haven't seen you on the conference tho!
I can't afford the time to go to too many, so I'm limiting myself to 3 per year.

So I'll see you in Malta? If not, definitely London :cool:

@Borgie - Thanks, my pleasure :)

@lockinlove - Yes, it's Belem tower, that's incredibly pretty area!
LOL, I did a little airport shopping there, so when I brought the drink to LuckyDino rep on the conference, I didn't have another bag so used that one :laugh:

Jelena,

As a Lisbon citizen, I couldn't fail this oportunity to thank you for the kind comments about "my city"... and surroundings.
It made me very proud.

Allow me a brief information about some places you mentioned...

The "Cultural Landscape of Sintra" is included in the World Heritage list.
It really is a beautiful region.

The Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) is included in the list of World Heritage, as well.
This monument honors the portuguese sailors ("discoverers", as we call them), in one of the places/harbours from where they raised anchor, during the time of the "Discoveries".

The actual/new "FIL - Feira Internacional de Lisboa", is located in the most northeastern side of Lisbon (we portuguese say "east side"), in an area (civil parish now) called "Parque das Nações (Park of the Nations)".
It is the area where the World Exposition took place in 1998 - World EXPO'98 (in 1998 Portugal celebrated 500 years of the discovery of the maritime route to India), just near the Rio Tejo (Tejo River), which flows directly into the Atlantic Ocean.

It is defenetly one of the most attactive and modern areas of Lisbon nowadays, even having a casino - Casino Lisboa (the most recent one of the Estoril Sol Group, the same of the Casino Estoril and the Casino Lisboa in Macau, this last considered by many the world's largest).

That said, I can only advise and invite everyone to visit Lisbon... Portugal, I should say.

Thanks again Jelena, for your generosity.

Cheers!

@manuels58 - That's too sweet of you! Thanks so much for the additional explanations and interesting details :) Wish I had more time to get to know Lisbon, because as I said - it's simply one incredibly beautiful and pleasant city, where people are unusually kind and dear. Not too often nowadays!
I expected Lisbon to be amazing, because I've already heard only positive comments and experience. Lots of people I know mentioned it as their favorite place on Earth :) You're very lucky to live there - I told my friend at one point that I wished I was born Portuguese :D And your language is so nice! So it was nothing but a pleasure writing only good things about your city :)

ps. You all know English so well!!

@MaltesePlayer Hey that would be so great!! :thumbsup:
