About us

iStack Conferences (www.istackconferences.com) brings you Affiliate World Conference (https://affiliateworldconferences.com) with bi-annual events held in Barcelona and Bangkok. Since 2015, our conferences have grown exponentially and have become industry leaders globally with more than 18,000 attendees for our online events and 500 companies and 8000 attendees annually for our offline events.

And when we say 'conferences', don't get confused with grey-suited businesspeople in drab dimly lit rooms eating stable sandwiches. Our "conferences" are attended by sharp online entrepreneurs with the future in mind. We make our 'in person' events more music festival than monotone, think a huge impressive stage with LED lighting, beer pong tournaments, and adult-sized bouncy castles. Our "conferences" are very fun and we apply this same mindset to our working set-up offering very flexible working hours, virtual offices, and annual travel to Bangkok and Barcelona for our events.

About the team

We're known for producing the best events in the industry and the team that produces those conferences is our incredible mix of talented and passionate professionals drawn from the worlds of design, event management, marketing, and more. We have grown from a very small team to a global company of more than 30+ people based across Europe, the Philippines, USA/Canada, and New Zealand.

We are now looking to grow our team further and take our company to the next level and we are looking for a Production Manager to help reach our goals for 2021.
