Brands & Domains 2019 Event in Montreal

Brands & Domains 2019 is a domain industry event focused on .Brand domain names. The event is being organized by the Brand Registry Group (BRG), “an association of companies and organisations working together to champion the use of brand top-level domains.” Brands & Domains 2019 will be taking place in Montreal, Canada on November 7th at Le Westin Montréal. The event coincides with the ICANN66 meeting also being held in Montreal.

Here’s a description of the event, from the event ticketing page:

“Find out how dotBrands are being used, the strategies behind them and what you need to know if you want to apply and operate a dotBrand for your own organisation. The day will round off with our evening reception which is a great opportunity to network and engage with your peers and industry experts in a relaxed environment.

With the ICANN66 meeting venue nearby, you can also take advantage of joining ICANN sessions to find out more about Internet governance and witness domain policy development work in action.

The event is organised by the Brand Registry Group (BRG), the association for brands at the top-level. Our members can attend for free but we also welcome non-members for a fee – register before 30th June to get the early bird rate.”

The event likely would not appeal to most domain investors, although I could see why investors in the new gTLD extensions might have an interest in attending. A draft agenda has been posted on the event website, but I do not see any details about who will be speaking or leading the panel discussions.

Tickets for non-BRG members cost $450. It looks like the early bird special date has passed, but I believe there may be discount codes available for those who wish to attend but have not yet registered.

Some members of the BRG include Amazon, Apple, Fox, Gucci, MarkMonitor, Neustar, Sky, and quite a few other major corporations.
