With pressure to take full advantage of the Christmas season, the next couple of months can be a stressful time for everyone in performance marketing, but we're here to help. Over the next few weeks we will be letting you know about the best way to keep on top of Christmas content and offers by getting the most from our portals and blogs. We'll be launching fun competitions, especially for you, to keep the festive cheer flowing and remind you that this is the season of giving. We are also hosting, Unwrapped, a Christmas focused sector day to showcase gifts, gadgets and toys that will be this year's best sellers and let publishers network with relevant brands. There are still a few places left for publishers to attend Unwrapped, which will be held on Thursday 13th October. If you would like to secure a place, please send your company name, affiliate ID and contact details to our events team.
