The third edition of AffiliateCon Sofia, scheduled for 12-13 May in Sofia, Bulgaria, will be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will instead take place on the same dates in 2021.
Last Friday, Bulgaria declared a state of emergency, which will remain in effect until April.
Additionally, many companies within the gaming and affiliate sectors are introducing travel bans for their staff.
"After two years of building the event, this year – with many brands already committed and hundreds of affiliates already registered – was set to truly establish AffiliateCon on the gaming calendar," said Julian Perry, Founder of AffiliateCon.
"In light of the coronavirus situation, now declared a global pandemic, we are left with no other choice but to postpone the event."
However, affiliates can still watch several speakers already booked for this year’s event online.
Indeed, AffiliateCon will run a virtual conference on 12 May 2020. More details on this will follow.
The AffiliateCon team is truly sorry for any inconvenience caused and is committed to making next year’s event bigger and better than ever.
