Our CEO Sebastian received a phone call from non-other than the multinational accounting firm Ernest & Young. Fortunately, it was nothing but great news!
As one of the few companies in Denmark, Traffic Lab has been nominated for the prestigious award as Entrepreneur of the Year. This is not only a tremendous pat on our shoulder, but also a recognition of our unique business culture and way of life.
We hope that we will qualify for the next round in the competition and get a step closer to the award. However, no matter the outcome, this is certainly a source of motivation for the future to come, and a recognition that we are heading in the right direction.
• Entrepreneur of the Year is the largest competition for growth companies in the world.
• The winner is chosen on behalf of several parameters such as values, leadership and economic growth.
• The company must have experienced at least 15% growth in turnover or gross profit compared to the previous fiscal year.
• The final winner of the competition will be chosen on the 28th of November 2019.
We began the day with a communal breakfast followed by nothing less than a cocktail mixing course, where everyone gave everything they had in them in order to win the desirable cocktail trophy.
After the last cocktails were shaken and stirred, next on our agenda was a boat trip around Øresund. Everyone was cheering as the boat left Nyhavn and set out for Flakfortet, where our team was able to enter land and explore the abandoned military facilities.
Back on the boat we were served a lovely Danish lunch with beer on the side, and after having explored Flakfortet, we sailed back to the harbor of Copenhagen in excellent spirits.
Every item on the agenda was cheerfully received and the weather couldn’t have been better. Our adventurous day ended with dinner at a restaurant by the pier.
The International PHP Conference was originally the world’s first conference on PHP, and it’s still by far the largest. Using WordPress for a lot of our sites, of course Traffic Lab didn’t wanna miss out!
While the IPC 2019 did not have any specific overall theme (other than PHP programming, of course), there were topics from that Daniel and Wayand found particularly interesting. These included:
After a great event we’re already looking forward to the year ahead. We want to to remain among the top igaming affiliates in Europe and hopefully we’ll take part of the 2020 EGR Power Affiliates!
Regulatory compliance has been a high priority for us for a long time and is an area in which we invest considerable resources. Therefore, we are also very happy for our inclusion in the finals shortlist, since this shows that our efforts are recognized.
As for the iGaming industry in general, 2019 seems to be the ‘Year of Compliance’. Both affiliates and operators alike have participated in a great number of initiatives to ensure transparency, responsibility and safety. Especially in Scandinavia, lawmakers and industry are developing a very fruitful exchange, and we are proud to be among the frontrunners in this respect.
