My NamesCon 2018 Recap

17

I attended my fifth NamesCon this past week and have a special lapel pin to show it. As I have come to expect, the conference was top quality, and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see friends and colleagues. This year's event seemed to run even more smoothly than ever, and the NamesCon organizers were on point throughout the event. Now that I am back home and rested, I want to share my NamesCon recap with you.

It is very important to note that I spent very little time in the panels and sessions. In fact, the ICA panel about UDRP proceedings was the only panel I attended - in addition to parts of the domain auction. For additional transparency, I should also add that I paid for my conference ticket right after last year's conference and NamesCon has been advertising on my blog.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, here are some thoughts I am back in the office: (more…) → Read More

Final NamesCon Sale Before Conference

0

A business colleague from New York emailed me a week ago to ask if I have a NamesCon discount code. I did not have one to provide for him, but the conference organizers just announced one "final sale before the conference."

Until Tuesday, January 2, people can save 50% off the current conference pass rates. The two tiers of prices are $399.50 for the standard pass and $574.50 for the VIP pass. This does not include the EventBrite booking fee. NamesCon 2018 will be held in Las Vegas January 28 - 31 at the Tropicana hotel.

If you haven't bought your NamesCon ticket yet, now is probably a good time. The discount code is located within the NamesCon tweet:

NamesCon Offering 50% Off Tickets for Black Friday / Cyber Monday

6

As we get closer to NamesCon, the ticket prices rise and the discounts generally fade. From now through November 28, NamesCon organizers are offering a 50% discount on ticket prices in honor of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In addition to offering a discount on the cost of tickets, NamesCon is also offering a discount on some of the remaining sponsorships that are available.

In case you missed it, I published an interview with Soeren von Varchmin, who recently became the President of NamesCon after the conference was acquired. Soeren answered several questions about the conference and what attendees can expect. NamesCon is the largest domain industry event held in the US (and possibly the world) each year.

NamesCon 2018 will be held at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas from January 28 - January 31, 2018. Visit the NamesCon Black Friday page to get the promo code discount. → Read More


NamesCon Offering Halloween Discount

0

Every once in awhile, NamesCon announces a special offer for conference passes. As the conference gets closer, the offers and discounts tend to disappear. If you have not bought your NamesCon ticket for January's conference, now might be a good time.

In a tweet today, NamesCon announced a 50% off discount code: "HappyHalloween"




I can only assume the code will expire after Halloween, but you will need to check with the conference organizers to confirm. With this promo code, it looks like standard conference passes are little over $300 and VIP conference passes are around $500. The EventBrite page has all of the details about what each pass gets you.

NamesCon 2018 will take place January 28-31, 2018 at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. → Read More


NamesCon Seeking Speakers for 2018 Conference

4

NamesCon put a call out for speakers for the 2018 conference coming up in January in Las Vegas:




Since there are typically several topical tracks during the conference, the speaker positions are most likely not limited to people within the domain name business. In fact, I would imagine NamesCon organizers (and conference attendees) would be interested in welcoming speakers with expertise in tertiarily related businesses and industries. Having speakers discuss new and interesting topics helps keep people engaged and likely draws a wider audience. My guess is that we will see more speakers discuss (more…) → Read More
