At the recent Affiliate Grand Slam (AGS) event in Dubai, a number of global marketing and SEO specialists took to the stage to deliver fascinating presentations.
During the first day of the event, several speakers hosted in-depth talks on digital marketing and Ad Tech, putting forward their thoughts about current trends and what the future holds for the fields of online traffic, marketing tactics, and SEO. During the conference, Dr. Sultan Ahmed al Jaber, the Minister of State of the UAE, highlighted how the past year had driven innovation, saying that it “has never been more important than now, while the world is recovering from the global Covid-19 pandemic.”
For many of the speakers, this was the first in-person event that they were able to attend since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and there was an atmosphere of optimism surrounding it.
Before the start of the conference, the AGS Awards Night took place, celebrating leaders in the industry. There were several winners, including Click Dealer, who won Marketing Agency of the Year, Addsempire, who took Marketing Solution of the Year, and HugeOffer, who received Affiliate Network of the Year.
