Wellness Access Institute launches to accelerate the speed of innovation from the science to shopper

Wellness Access Institute

The fast-growing global health & wellness industry is now worth US$1.5 trillion and is projected to grow at a rate of 5-10% per year ( Mckinsey & Company ). While every company rushes to bring new products to market to take a slice of the revenue opportunity, consumers are faced with a different dilemma. What innovations or brands can they trust? Which products are genuinely backed by science-based evidence and real-world proof? What actions can they take now to support their long term health and wellness? And how can they get a hold of the latest cutting edge research and solutions sooner? Wellness Access Institute (WAI) aims to position itself as the leading authority and innovation accelerator in the Wellness industry. Established in June 2022 by Greg Macpherson and Warren Liu, WAI (Pronounced ‘why’) aims to address the industry's biggest problems. Whether it's predicting the future of the industry, educating consumers on the science, addressing the trust deficit or tackling issues with supply chain quality and speed to market for products. WAI’s goal is to establish an independent industry body that is funded by the industry it hopes to serve. Warren Liu, Co-Founder of WAI says “WAI aims to enforce, advance and advocate the wellness movement to benefit the health of the human race. The idea came to me and my co-founder Greg given our work together on launching the SRW Cellular Health brand. We realised a number of issues in bringing genuine innovation to market with a lack of platforms, information and support for those that haven’t been through the process before. It's from this realisation that we had the idea to create a solution”. Ahead of the launch today, Warren and Greg have been able to establish an initial advisory board featuring some of the best minds from across the industry. “With our advisory board we hope to answer the what, why and how of the industry in a way that helps accelerate the wellness movement globally” says Greg Macpherson, Co-Founder of WAI. “Along with solving some of the key industry issues; this advisory board will work on their collective 2030 vision for wellness and support with the latest scientific research”. The wellness advisory board features 8 prominent individuals: From Aubrey Levitt the founder of microbiome startup ‘Postbiotics Plus’, to Dr. Matt Yousefzadeh who has published over 30 scientific publications to Michael Heinam who has secured patent applications and contracts with leading universities and researchers, in over 145 countries around the world. The initial team brings with them a network of thousands of potential collaborators across the globe. Warren Liu added: “Ultimately this diverse panel is what makes WAI different. It's no longer just businessmen and scientists trying to create new products to sell. It's an open dialogue and vision setting agenda involving people at every stage of the journey and starts with making knowledge on the primary factors for wellness accessible to all. From a discussion on what you can do today to be healthier, right down to the young person suffering acne problems who may end up buying a product from TikTok” The WAI accelerator program will also be a critical ignition tool for change. The industry is known for its red tape and often our best scientists take years to bring the latest innovations to people who need them, let alone in a way that is accessible and affordable. For the first time WAI will be able to connect scientists with the best minds in R&D, Entrepreneurship, Technical Production, Supply Chain, Marketing, Culture, Education, Government and Industry. Greg Macepherson said: “WAI is here to surface foundational aspects of how we all age healthier and make this knowledge accessible to all. We are here to foster conversation and change to move humanity’s health and wellness forward. There is something fundamentally broken at a population level around health and wellness and an urgent paradigm shift is needed if we are to support an ageing population sustainably and improve our collective and individual health as we age. WAI aims to accelerate our understanding and access to wellness and wellness innovation in a way that is trusted and available to all. Improving “Access’ to the latest innovations is core to our mission.” Warren and Greg have been discussing specific problems in the industry that they believe they can begin to solve right away. With Greg’s background as a biotechnologist, futurist, Founder of SRW Laboratories and author of ‘The 9 Hallmarks of Ageing’ he has identified an issue that is very personal to both of them. “How we classify, understand and provide cutting edge solutions to ageing will be one of the group’s first missions. How we think about our cellular health and supporting a dialogue to classify ageing as a disease is a fundamental issue to raise awareness of. A similar parallel is when scientists reached consensus that microbes caused infections. This consensus caused a change in behaviours such as adopting basic hygiene principles saving hundreds of thousands of lives and then led to the discovery of antibiotics that saved millions more. Once we think of ageing as a disease then it will drive changes to behaviours that cause us to slow the ageing process and ultimately will lead to the discovery of “antibiotics” for ageing that will lead to increased health-spans and lifespans for us all - the benefits of this for humanity are significant” added Greg Macepherson. Beyond addressing core facets of how we improve accessibility to knowledge around health and wellness that will drive a step change in how well people age, an issue right now is that there are some amazing breakthroughs happening in the research space. We need to set up frameworks to massively accelerate research and access to these breakthroughs. The reality is that most everyday citizens don’t know that there is clear science on how to slow aging. Or how to even begin to translate this and take action for themselves. By focusing on raising awareness of the issue itself, WAI hopes to educate the end customer on what solutions are available. And collaborating directly with scientists, labs and researchers to help bring affordable solutions to customers right now. WAI also aims to raise awareness about the benefits of gut health and nutrition as ways to ward off disease. Most consumers aren’t aware of the latest research in phytonutrients and how they can act as the ingredients for your body's own compound pharmacy - your gut microbiome. One that can produce its own medicines, now known as postbiotics, that support our overall health. When we think about nutrition we have actually been sold a lie for many years. We can all remember the phrase ‘eat your greens’. This was actually born out of an opportunity to sell green supplements to those who didn’t eat green fruits and vegetables because they didn’t like the taste. Fast forward to today and the market is flooded with hundreds of greens based supplements and multivitamins. We seem to have forgotten about the other 5 major colours based on this clever marketing ploy. We actually need to be eating red, purple, blue, yellow, green and black fruits and vegetables of every colour. And these need to contain genuine phytonutrients in order for our bodies to be able to create their own solutions. 90% of the health and wellness market doesn’t even consider this. Finally they have also set our sights on the beauty industry and its endless and often toxic pursuit of beauty. We aim to raise awareness of the skin biome and how that affects how we think about beauty from the inside out. Warren has previously worked with ‘Vida Glow’ who pioneered the ingestible beauty industry so he knows this space well. “We aren’t just talking about marine collagen here however; we are looking to tackle the serious issue of beauty culture through education and innovation” commented Warren Liu. Full list of WAI Advisory Board members: Aubry Levitt, Dr Andrew Clark, Dr Matt Yousefzadeh, Michael Henain, Aki Ueda, Dr Ross Walker and Dr Albert Dashi. About Wellness Access Institute Wellness Access Institute (WAI, pronounced ‘why’) is a non-for-profit organisation that aims to position itself as the leading authority and innovation accelerator in the wellness industry. Established in June 2022 by Greg Macpherson and Warren Liu, WAI aims to solve some of the industry's biggest problems. Whether it's predicting the future of the industry, educating consumers on the science, addressing the trust deficit created by untrustworthy sellers (citizen scientists) or tackling issues with supply chain quality and speed to market for products.

Shareholder: Zuckerberg Should Follow Musk’s Lead and Release ‘Facebook Files’

National Legal & Policy Center

As Elon Musk breaks blockbuster news almost daily with releases of internal communications and documents that reveal how much former Twitter executives lied to the public about its censorship practices, a Meta shareholder is calling upon CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take similar steps to be transparent with his current and former Facebook customers. National Legal and Policy Center – which owns stock in the Mountain View, Calif. social media company – will sponsor a shareholder proposal at the company’s next annual meeting in May 2023. The resolution calls for the tech giant to disclose requests it has received from the federal government to remove content from its Facebook platform. “Mark Zuckerberg admitted, matter-of-factly, to Joe Rogan earlier this year that the FBI led Facebook’s moderators to believe the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “There are countless other examples of requests by government for Facebook to censor users – indeed, the company even created an online censorship portal with the word ‘takedowns’ in it, for the government to submit such requests.” “Meta shares today are worth one-third of what they were valued on January 1 st of this year,” Chesser added. “Mr. Zuckerberg has used the company as his personal playground to pursue his metaverse fantasies, while letting Facebook wither by reputational ruin. He blames Apple’s privacy protection measures for Facebook’s revenue woes, but the truth is the social media platform is dying from self-inflicted wounds like censorship, which is driving users away.” The text of NLPC’s proposal for a “Report on Government Take-Down Requests” for Meta’s 2023 annual meeting follows: RESOLVED: Shareholders request that Meta Platforms, Inc. (“Company”) provide a report, published on the Company’s website and updated semi-annually – and omitting proprietary information and at reasonable cost – that specifies the Company’s policy in responding to requests to remove or take down content from its platforms by the Executive Office of the President, Members of Congress, or any other agency, entity or subcontractor on behalf of the United States Government. This report shall also include an itemized listing of such “takedown” requests, including the name and title of the official making the request; the nature and scope of the request; the date of the request; the Company’s action or inaction to the request; and a reason or rationale for the Company’s response, or lack thereof. SUPPORTING STATEMENT: In Bantam Books, Inc. vs. Sullivan (1963), and in other cases, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that private entities may not engage in suppression of speech at the behest of government, as it has the same effect as direct government censorship. On July 15, 2021, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked, “Can you talk a little bit more about this request for tech companies to be more aggressive in policing misinformation? Has the administration been in touch with any of these companies and are there any actions that the federal government can take to ensure their cooperation, because we’ve seen, from the start, there’s not a lot of action on some of these platforms.” Psaki replied, “Sure. Well, first, we are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team, given, as (Surgeon General) Dr. (Vivek) Murthy conveyed, this is a big issue of misinformation, specifically on the pandemic.” Evidence – and testimony by Company Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg – shows the Company has been subject to overtures from the U.S. government to censor. For example, in a podcast interview in August 2022, Mr. Zuckerberg said Facebook restricted reach among users to a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s laptop, after the FBI told the Company to be on “high alert” for so-called “Russian propaganda.” Also, Facebook maintained a “content requests system” for use by government and law enforcement to request censorship of so-called “disinformation.” The Internet domain for the company’s portal even has the word “takedowns” in it. Shareholders need to know whether the Company cooperates with government officials engaged in unconstitutional censorship, opening the Company to liability claims by victims. Shareholders also need to know whether the Company fails to disclose these potential liabilities as material risks in its public filings. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or Please visit Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action.

10 Best Casino Affiliate Programs

Online Casinos

Of all the niches currently available to marketers, one of the most interesting has to be iGaming - it’s a sector that has been active for some time, but is still expanding and finding new spaces to grow into. It’s also widely applicable, making it easy for a wide range of blogs and sites to find ways of turning a profit. Furthermore, there are so many affiliate programmes that you can pick up, with partnerships readily available at most if not all of the biggest names on the iGaming scene. Below, we look at ten of the best affiliate programmes you can take part in, reviewing what they offer to you as a marketer and how easy it is to achieve the top levels of commission. These programmes offer a wealth of opportunities to site owners who are prepared to put the work in. We’ll explain how you can maximise your returns and make the most of what’s out there. Top Casino Affiliate Programs Lindas Partners Infinity Star Partners Ocean Breeze Affiliates Mr. Sloty Partners 4Crowns Affiliates 7Star Partners Jim Partners My Stake Affiliates Top One Partners 22Bet Partners Best Online Casino Affiliate Program Reviews 1. Linda’s Partners This affiliate programmeis allied to the popular Lady Linda casino which has a wide range of international customers and promises a base level of 50% commission by revenue share. The casino - and by extension the affiliate programme- takes a markedly different tack to the average online casino site, using softer colours and fonts in a way that aims to harness the growing female audience in the casino world, and this may well stand out to some potential partners as an angle that can be used in marketing content and on affiliate sites. Linda’s Partners makes use of Cellxpert software in order to track referrals, and this is information that should put a smile on your face if you intend to partner with the service. Cellxpert is among the most effective software packages for keeping track of statistics, so affiliate partners will know at a glance when their efforts are working out, what they may need to do more of, and how much they are on target to make in any given month. The information on your Cellxpert dashboard will be incredibly easy to read while browsing, which certainly helps ongoing monitoring. Compared to some other affiliate services, we would just note that Linda’s offers fewer banking options than some of the other programmes in our rundown. You can request a payout, at a minimum of €300 - through Paypal, Skrill, Neteller, BTC or wire transfer. We’d recommend that ideally, the programme look into offering more options for withdrawal of funds, as the higher minimum amount and the smaller collection of payout methods could be off-putting for marketers who are just starting out and looking for things to be as simple as possible. Aside from that issue, it’s a very pleasant affiliate programme to work with, and the indications are that it is very effective in converting leads. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: Lindas Partners Commission: 50% Revenue Share / 100-400 CPA Casino Brands: Lady Linda, Luck of Spins, SlotsNBets, Black Magic, and Top Markets: UK, NL, SE, IT, NO, FI, DE, FR Restricted Markets: US Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 2. Infinity Stars Partners One of the things that stands out about Infinity Stars as an affiliate programmeis that it is a highly versatile system. It works the way you want it to work. The entry-level for the commission is 40%, and it tops out at 60%, and as long as you bring in one new customer each month, you’ll maintain a commission between those poles. If you don’t, it will drop to 40%, but that’s still a very decent level of commission. Additionally, you can make the programme work how you want it to work. If you don’t think there is much of a chance that you’ll be converting casino customers, then you don’t have to include casino sites in your promotions. If your affiliate site is generally sports-focused, then you can aim to convert sportsbook leads instead. You can also do vice-versa. It should be noted, simply from a point of view of full disclosure, that you can’t choose CPA or hybrid plans if you choose to affiliate only on sportsbooks - those programmes are reserved for casino affiliates. Infinity Stars Partners covers the casino brands named Lucy’s, Divas’ Luck, and 4Kasino, which are three all-rounder casinos providing the whole gamut from slots to sports betting, with live casinos from Evolution Gaming in between. In other words, they’re absolutely prime candidates for affiliate sellers, with endless angles you can push. Furthermore, Infinity Stars has demonstrated a willingness to listen to its partners: While they initially set their lower The limit for commission payouts is €100. One other thing to note with Infinity Stars is that the cut-off date to send your reports for commission payments is the 20th of each month. If you send after that date, you’ll need to wait until the following month to receive a payout, so keep that very firmly in mind.

Ocean Breeze Casino Affiliates Ocean Breeze has one of the best reputations of any iGaming companies, due to its long-standing history in the casino sector - before the internet even existed it was making slot machines for bars and casinos. So it also knows how to move with the times, and its affiliate platform reflects that dynamism. Marketers are encouraged to work with Ocean Breeze to find models of affiliation that suit them, and the sites that bring the most revenue to the casino will get the biggest slice of commission in return. Revenue shares for partners on this programme range between 35-50%, with the lower level open to anyone bringing revenue of more than 100 to the worldly regulated casino, and there is also a sub-affiliate programme that offers a 5% commission. Any potential partner can consider what would be their best option for an agreement with the casino, and then work with Ocean Breeze to get the ideal results for both parties. Interestingly, there is also a CPA element, where partners can ask for bespoke deals with Ocean Breeze if they feel that these will be mutually beneficial. They need only skype or email the proposal to their account manager at the affiliate program, and if approved these deals can go into effect within 5 minutes of being reviewed. This affiliate programme runs on the Cell Expert system, which is widely reputed among affiliate partners, and it employs a No Negative Carryover policy. To achieve the maximum 50% commission, you will need to bring in $1,000 a month in revenue for the casino, but the levels that can be achieved below this mean that this is a rewarding affiliate programme for those who are involved with it. Payments are processed at the beginning of each month and can be paid out by wire transfer, Skrill, Moneybookers, Bitcoin, or PayPal. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: Ocean Breeze Partners Commission: 45% Revenue Share / 100-300 CPA Casino Brands: Spicy Jackpot, Ocean Breeze Top Markets: UK, NL, IT, DE, AU, Restricted Markets: US Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 4. 4Crowns Casino Affiliates Another casino that uses Cell Expert to run its affiliate campaigns, 4Crowns is a valuable partner for any webmaster looking to make the most of the iGaming niche. Any affiliate marketer can choose their most promising way forward, as 4Crowns Affiliates offers a choice of commission models. You can take a standard affiliate revenue plan, suggest your own CPA model, or adopt a hybrid approach that combines both of the above if that’s what would suit you best. As a reassurance to marketers, 4Crowns wipes negative balances at the end of each month and has a range of exclusive offers and promotions that are handed out to the best-performing affiliates on a regular basis. As with all the best affiliate programmes, 4Crowns makes the most advanced marketing materials available to its partners and these are updated regularly. They include banners, links, socials and email content that can be used to attract new leads and are immediately made available once you have been accepted on to the program. It’s advisable that you exercise caution with the content you use on your affiliate site; naturally, it needs to be interesting enough to make customers come back and click the links, but it also news to remain within 4Crowns Affiliates’ terms and conditions. If you step outside of these, 4Crowns retains the right to close your account permanently and without notice. Payouts are made on a monthly basis, and all of the usual banking methods are available for cashout, including Skrill, Bank Transfer, and Bitcoin. Commission amounts range from 35-50%, with the lower level existing up to $2000 in monthly revenue and the highest requiring you to bring in $150,000 or more. In addition, if you can bring great value or volume you can request a high CPA commission and after reviewing your account you may be granted up to 350 CPA. The structure is highly competitive, though, and in a good month, you should have no difficulty seeing a significant return from your affiliate efforts. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: 4Crowns Commission: 40-50% Revenue Share / 100-300 CPA Casino Brands: 4Crowns Top Markets: UK, DE, IT, FI, AU Restricted Markets: US, NL Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 5. Mr. Sloty Partners Another affiliate programme that is linked to a single casino, Mr Sloty Partners works with the casino of the same name, one of a growing brands of newer online betting sites licensed in Curacao. The affiliate programme could prove, in due course, to be as popular as the casino, delivering as it does a steady stream of rewards that will quickly start to build up. The affiliate programmeope rates a No Negative Carryover program, which is essential in particular for any new affiliate marketer who is trying to build from the ground up in this niche. As of this moment, we can say that Mr. Sloty is offering both Revenue Share and CPA and a sub-affiliate model, which may be due to the fact that they are a well-established affiliate programme. These are things that often get added to an affiliate’s list of features later in its existence. Mr Sloty Partners is worth including here for a number of reasons. Firstly, the casino with which you will be partnering is one that is growing in terms of popularity and recognition, so it becomes much easier to get a referral you can be confident about. Secondly, the payout structure at the affiliate programme is as simple as they come - a low minimum payout of 100, plenty of payment methods including straightforward bank transfers and ewallets, and payouts that are calculated on the 15th of each month to be paid out at the end. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to casino affiliate programmes, and Mr. Sloty shows that keeping things simple is often a much more welcome approach. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: Mr. Sloty Partners Commission: 50% Revenue Share / 100-300 CPA Top Markets: UK, DE, IT, AU, NL Restricted Markets: USA Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 6. 7Stars Partners The first thing to mention about 7Stars Partners is the sheer number of casinos with which they partner. According to their website, there are 17 brands under this particular umbrella, but that’s a number that has been steadily growing and may well continue to. With this many casinos partnered up, there are all the more chances for you to build a steady stream of referrals, and that brings us to the second, and perhaps the most important thing to mention about 7Stars Partners. The more new referrals you bring in, the greater your commissions will be - and those commissions start at 45%. Your first 15 referrals will earn you 45% commission, and the next ten will push that to 50%. If you keep getting referrals, though, you can soon be pulling in 60% of the revenue you’ve earned for the casinos in this programme (and remember, there are 17 casinos within it, so that could be a significant chunk of money). And that’s just on casinos. You can make 30-45% from sportsbook referrals on the same sliding scale. At the higher end of that scale, you can also earn VIP privileges, which you can discuss with 7Stars when you’re approaching that level. There is no negative carryover from month to month when you affiliate with 7Stars Partners, although the commissions are bundled. This means that if you have a negative balance with BuranCasino and a positive one with Casino in terms of revenue, the shortfall from one will be made up from the surplus at the other. This needn’t be a problem - affiliate partners are often quick to remark that 7Stars is routinely the highest payer of the programmes that they affiliate with - but it is something to watch out for when tracking your monthly amounts at each casino or sportsbook. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: 7Star Partners Commission: 40-50% Revenue Share / 50-250 CPA Casino Brands: Rabona, Betinia, Nomini, Wazamba, Librabet, and many more. Top Markets: IT, AT, CA, NZ, NO Restricted Markets: NL, ES, SE, UK Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 7. Jim Partners As with other programs, Jim Partners stands out as an affiliate programmein no small part because it has so many partner casinos. The affiliate platform itself is endorsed by both the Curacao and Maltese licensing authorities, and the casinos in its partner list cover a wide geographical range too. Pleasingly for affiliate marketers, Jim Partners is also keen to assist its partners with plenty of advice on how to generate traffic, and the tools to make it happen. This is one of those affiliate platforms where the effort to read and follow their website is something that will definitively be rewarded. Intriguingly, Jim Partners goes further than most affiliate programmes in giving its users tips and assistance to provide the best leads. As well as the usual handy hints and promotional materials such as banner ads, hyperlinks, and email marketing kits, they offer advice and methods that deliver results for Twitch streamers and TikTokers as well as YouTubers. This holistic approach is appreciated by service users and helps many of them get to the top level of affiliates, where the reward is 50% of the revenue generated. The website also features a rundown of all the casinos managed by JP, which helps to target affiliate content. As is standard, JP also operates a No Negative Carryover rule, which is beneficial for so many affiliate users. Furthermore, they offer a larger than usual range of payment methods to their affiliates, which includes bank transfers, EcoPayz, and WebMoney. One thing to be aware of is that bank transfers have a lower limit of $1000 per payment, so - particularly in the earlier stages of your affiliate relationship - you might prefer to take your payments from the service in the form of ewallet payments, which start at the much lower number of $5. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: Jim Partners Commission: 40-60% Revenue Share / 100-250 CPA Casino Brands: Fortune Clock, Jackpot Charm, Slottica, and many more Top Markets: UK, DE, IT, FR, NO, DK, ES Restricted Markets: US, NL Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 45 Days 8. MyStake The popular MGA and UKGC licensed casino that is MyStake has its own affiliate programme which is growing in popularity with a wide market of affiliate partners. The commission on offer here is certainly competitive - it’s been described as an industry-leading 50% from the get-go up to High CPA’s and Hybrid deals, which isn’t quite as high on the backend as some other providers but goes much further at the beginning. With MyStake growing in customer base, there is definitely an opportunity for beginning affiliate marketers to harness the simplicity of this affiliate program. Unlike some of the affiliate programmes here, MyStake’s affiliate tie-in is just linked to the one casino - MyStake, obviously. So there is no bundling to be concerned with. There is also no need to focus on climbing up the levels - you start at 50% revenue and stay there unless you can bring good numbers, so your numbers will simply rise as you add new referrals. You will have to pay small monthly admin fees, but these are a few dollars a time and needn’t concern you too much, especially as there is no minimum payout for this affiliate, which as far as we are aware is more or less unique. It’s a surprise to see a single casino taking such a bespoke approach to its affiliate program, but it’s refreshing and something we’d hope to see replicated elsewhere. MyStake runs its own proprietary software as a tracking method, which keeps overheads low - and impressively, the software covers more statistical fields than the typical licensed versions. Affiliates will receive their payments monthly, and they will be paid out within seven days of being calculated, by Skrill, Neteller, Bank Transfer or Bitcoin. The payments are generated in Euros, US dollars or Bitcoin, and you can speak to the casino to get the best possible deal on what will be included - and excluded - whenever your payments are calculated.

The platform was initially referred to as 22Bet Affiliates, before rebranding to the more alliterative 22Bet Partners more recently. It covers a range of casinos, which include the eponymous 22Bet along with Betamo Casino, Betchan Casino, and Bob Casino. The programme offers multiple ways to get paid, with commissions available on revenue via a sliding scale of numbers referred, or a CPA model which gives you 5% on every new referral. The sliding scale is certainly intriguing, running from 25% to 40%. You start at the lower level and stay there for the first five new depositors, then move up to 30%. At the time of your 16th unique depositor, that kicks up to 35%. You then need to wait for a 35th first-time depositor to crack 40%. At the present time, there is no sub-affiliate system, but affiliate programmes are quite fluid, and this could well change in the near future if enough people request the change. There is a very wide range of payment methods to pick up your commission from, with all of the usual options including ewallets, bank transfers and Bitcoin. Affiliates can also receive payments to a VISA card should they so choose. This should not be a difficult partner to get leads for if you’re interested in casino betting. There are multiple brands under the 22Bet umbrella, which are involved with several of the very best game developers online. Names such as Evolution Gaming, Microgaming and NetEnt are among the companies providing slots and table gaming titles (including live dealer games) to the casinos here, which should be music to the ears of your potential leads. Casino Affiliate Program Overview URL: 22Bet Partners Commission: 40-50% Revenue Share / 50-200 CPA Brands: 22Bet, Playamo, Betano and more Top Markets: PT, DE, T, IT, ES, BR, CA, AU Restricted Markets: UK, NL, US Negative Carry Over: No Cookie Duration: 60 Days 10. Top One Partners The name “ Top One Partners ” does little or nothing to enlighten customers as to the identity of the casinos that operate under this affiliate partner, which some might consider unfortunate considering the fact that these casinos include Red Dog Casino and Slots Empire. These are, justifiably, two of the bigger names among online slots, and arguably more importantly they are casinos with an agreement with Real Time Gaming. That makes them particularly interesting to a wide range of casino gamers who recognise that name as a provider of unique, interesting, and popular slots. To put that another way, the name Real Time Gaming on its own can do a lot to make people interested in a casino and is a perfect tool to have when you are trying to push affiliate traffic. This makes Top One Partners a very interesting platform to work with and means that you can pick up plenty of referrals in a short space of time, therefore pushing your affiliate commission up to 45% of the revenue you have driven. You could also choose to stick with a CPA model, which can be good for $250 a month. There is also a sub-affiliate programme that is locked at 2% of revenue, but can add up to a decent amount if you’re proactive in promoting your service. Payouts come at the end of the month, with a minimum amount of $100, and can be paid into a Skrill or Moneybookers account, in the form of a cheque or, if you live in the UK, direct to your bank account via a BACS transfer. Top One also seeks to make it as easy as possible to drive traffic, by providing a trove of different promotional materials that includes banners and other useful media content. All of this additional material is pre-primed for tracking and makes it easy to track how your referrals are performing.

Four Flagship Trade Shows Lead the Return of Business Events to Hong Kong in 2023

Hong Kong Tourism Board

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 12 December 2022 - Four of the world’s leading flagship trade shows – Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW), Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA), Cosmoprof Asia, and premier fresh produce fair ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA – are returning to Hong Kong in 2023. This is in addition to the recent success of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) in attracting over 30 major B2B conventions in the next few years. In total, these events are expected to draw over 300,000 participants. Kenneth Wong, General Manager, MICE & Cruise of HKTB, said: “We are thrilled to welcome four leading trade shows back to the city. Their return highlights Hong Kong’s strong fundamentals, favourable business environment, rich tourism offerings, and enormous opportunities brought by the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), which will give Hong Kong an edge in attracting international business events. The HKTB strives to drive recovery of business events to Hong Kong. The recent success in securing the world-class business events is strong testament to the city’s status as The World’s Meeting Place.” World-class Exhibitions Returning to Hong Kong A. Biggest Jewellery Shows Set to Shine in Hong Kong The jewellery industry’s biggest B2B sourcing shows are making a triumphant return to Hong Kong in 2023. The trade’s flagship and most iconic show – Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW) – will return to its original dual-venue, product category-specific format at AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) from 18 to 22 September 2023 and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 20 to 24 September 2023. Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) will be held from 22 to 25 June 2023. “We are thrilled to be hosting the greatest jewellery and gemstone fairs back in Hong Kong in 2023,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President, Informa Markets in Asia, the event organiser. “The last three years have proved that the jewellery sourcing experience is simply not the same without our fully-fledged, international B2B fairs. Our jewellery community is very much looking forward to returning to Hong Kong and taking advantage of many important opportunities for connection and business growth with buyers, sellers and investors all in one place.” B. ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA Looks Forward to a Fruitful Return in 2023 ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2023 made the strategic decision to return to Hong Kong, its long-established location since 2008. Asia imports about 16 million tonnes of fresh fruit annually, and ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is the region’s premier conference and trade fair for the fresh fruit and vegetable supply chain business. ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA will be held from 6 to 8 September in the AWE, along with the ASIAFRUIT CONGRESS. “We’re delighted that ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2023 is heading back to Hong Kong,” said David Axiotis, Managing Director of organiser Global Produce Events (HK) Co. Limited. “We’ve missed Hong Kong because of its unrivalled efficiency, connectivity, ease of doing business, favourable trade policies and dynamic market. Most importantly, it’s strategically situated in the heart of Asia and is a gateway to Mainland China. It’s exciting to return and see first-hand the city’s new future-proof infrastructure and venue developments and experience the enormous business opportunities brought by the Greater Bay Area.” C. Leading Beauty Fair Aims for a Makeover Next Year Cosmoprof Asia, the largest B2B beauty exhibition in the Asia Pacific region, will also return to the city next year. “Since the show was first launched in the city in 1996, it has seen consistent growth, with the 2019 edition being the most successful to date. Hosting the exhibition in Hong Kong has made a significant contribution to this growth, as the city has a gravitational pull of buyers and sellers, not just across Asia and Mainland China, but the entire world, to explore fast-growing beauty business in our region,” said Michael Duck, Executive Vice President – Commercial Development, Informa Markets. Strong Line-up of World-Class Conventions One of the most significant regional rheumatology congresses in the world – the 24th Asia-Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology Congress (APLAR) – returned to Hong Kong from 6 to 9 December, welcoming the largest group of overseas attendees in person since the pandemic began. In addition, multiple international conventions in the fields such as business, aviation, innovative technology and medical sciences are set to take the stage in Hong Kong in the next few years. For instance, RISE, one of the world’s most influential tech events, will take place in Hong Kong for five consecutive years starting in 2024. Since its inception in Hong Kong in 2015, it has become Asia’s largest tech event, according to CNBC, and it serves as an important window for companies from both East and West to make connections in new markets. Also, one of the world’s sought-after Web3 events, the WOW Summit, will be held in Hong Kong in 2023, a first in the Asia Pacific region. Comprehensive Support to Drive MICE Industry Recovery To expedite the recovery of Hong Kong’s convention and exhibition industry, the Hong Kong Government has accorded the strongest support ever to empower the industry with the extension of the 100% free venue rental for eligible events until 30 June 2023, and a new subsidy for recurrent exhibitions to be staged in the city over three years. The HKTB has formulated a comprehensive strategy to spur the recovery of the MICE industry in Hong Kong and consolidate Hong Kong’s position as a preferred MICE destination. There will be a significant boost in financial support by the HKTB to MICE-related industries to enhance Hong Kong’s competitive edge in winning the hosting rights for MICE events and attracting business visitors to the city. With its competitive bidding package, Hong Kong is geared up to take the MICE industry to new heights. Contact Details Hong Kong Tourism Board Mr Cameron Tong +852 2807 6367
