The shortlist for the iGB Affiliate Awards 2024 has been revealed, ahead of the ceremony to be held on February 8 at the Grade II-listed Art Deco Troxy music venue in East London. “A roll-call of outstanding talent” is how Naomi Barton, Portfolio Director responsible for iGB Affiliate, described the shortlist of entries.
The black-tie Awards ceremony, which features a three-course sit-down dinner and an entertainment-packed evening, is the last to be held in London prior to iGB Affiliate’s relocation to Barcelona, with organizers reporting huge early demand for table bookings as the international iGaming affiliate community prepares to “say goodbye to London in style.”

“It’s totally fitting that the last iGB Affiliate Awards to be held in London has attracted a record 338 submissions from across the international community. The Awards are an integral part of the iGB Affiliate experience and celebrate everything so unique and compelling about the iGaming affiliate sector, recognizing the industry’s outstanding individuals, brands, games, networks, tech vendors, and marketing campaigns,” Barton said.
The awards ceremony works as a complement to the iGB Affiliate exhibition, which will feature circa 155 exhibitors occupying 11,757 square meters of space and a raft of show initiatives created to highlight new strategies, new partnerships, new sectors, and new jurisdictions. This all will culminate “in the delivery of new business opportunities for the thousands of customers who will be part of what will be an historic edition of iGB Affiliate,” she further explained.
Claire Wellard, CEO of affiliate management consultancy iGamingXL and a member of the 21-strong external judging panel said: “As always, it’s a pleasure to be part of the judging process for the iGB Affiliate Awards. I love seeing the developments from all of these companies in innovation and growth.”
“The step change in the quality of the submissions across all the categories with which I was involved as a judge this year reinforces the view of this sector as one that is in rude health and poised to go from strength to strength in 2024,” she added.
For her part, fellow judge Victoria Reed, Co-Founder of Better Change, commented: “It was encouraging to read about some of the impressive and unique innovations by affiliates in the area of safer gambling. Such initiatives are set to become more integral to iGaming’s ongoing repositioning of itself as a more sustainable sector with responsible play at the heart of its operations and strategy.”
