ICA to Host Meeting in Las Vegas in January

The Internet Commerce Association (ICA) announced that it will host its Annual Member Meeting early next year at Resorts World Las Vegas. The members only event will be held January 22 – 24, 2023. Early bird tickets are now for sale via EventBrite.

Here are some of the details about the event tickets and costs that were shared by the ICA:

Nordic Domain Days Coming Up in May

According to an email I received from Lars “LG” Forsberg, Nordic Domain Days is scheduled to be held May 9-10, 2022 at the Clarion Stockholm in Stockholm, Sweden. I believe this will be the first in-person domain industry event in more than two years.

According to the event website, Nordic Domain Days “is where Registries, registrars, resellers, service providers, and investors network and share insights during a packed two-day conference.” The full agenda for the event has not been posted on the website yet but some of the speakers and discussion topics have been announced.

NamesCon to be Held in Austin Last Weekend of August

I received an email this morning from NamesCon announcing that an in-person event is happening at the end of this Summer. NamesCon Global 2022 will be held in Austin, Texas from August 31 through September 3 at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown. It marks the first in-person domain industry conference since NamesCon Global in January of 2020.

Early bird tickets for the conference are now on sale via Eventbrite for $349 plus taxes and fees. There are apparently only 200 Early Bird tickets available at that price. The on-site ticket fee will be $999 plus fees, although NamesCon tends to run special offers every now and again.

People who are concerned about traveling because of Covid-19 should make note of this FAQ before purchasing a ticket:

NamesCon Global Moved to Late Spring 2022

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause changes to events around the world. NamesCon just informed attendees that its largest annual domain investment industry conference – NamesCon Global – will be moved to “late Spring 2022.” NamesCon Global has been traditionally held each year in late January, with the last in-person conference taking place in Austin, Texas in January of 2020. NamesCon had been planning on hosting its NamesCon Global conference in January of 2022, but those plans are now scrapped.

The NamesCon Online event will still be held as planned from September 22-24, 2021. Tickets for the event are available to purchase online. Past online-only NamesCon events seem to be popular amongst industry participants.

Here is the announcement from NamesCon, along with a discount code link organizers shared for the upcoming virtual event:

ICA Planning September Event in Las Vegas

The Internet Commerce Association (ICA), a trade organization that represents the interests of the domain investment community, announced that it is planning to host an event in-person later this year. The event, which is tentatively scheduled for September 19-20 in Las Vegas, will be held to honor the ICA’s 15th anniversary. The ICA previously held a poll to ask members if they would attend an in-person event and gave members some location options from which to choose.

The event will be only be open to domain industry participants who are ICA members or sponsors of the event.

NamesCon Online – September 22-24, 2021

In March, NamesCon announced it would not host its NamesCon Europe event that had been scheduled to be held in Hungary this Summer. Today, NamesCon announced it will be hosting its popular online event, NamesCon Online, September 22 – 24, 2021. The format will be similar to the last time it hosted its online-only event for NamesCon Global.

Here’s a very high-level overview of what the conference will cover:
