I would assume yes. Have not heard otherwise. I would expect we will hear about @NamesCon Europe first though.

In taking 2020 cancellations for granted, though perhaps a well organized internet event (with a sponsored domain by a registry) could be quite a hit.

I was having a Twitter conversation about upcoming domain industry conferences, and I understand many events are likely in limbo – even those scheduled for 2021. Planning a conference takes quite a bit of time and can be quite expensive to reserve the space for conference rooms and venues. Predicting when it will be safe to travel – and if people will be willing to travel – is challenging if not impossible.
I reached out to NamesCon conference organizers to see if they have an update on the status of NamesCon Europe (scheduled for August in Budapest) and NamesCon 2021 tentatively scheduled for January. Once I receive an update, if there is one, I will be sure to share it.
