NamesCon Announces Special Christmas Offer

I want to share a special ticket offer posted by NamesCon this morning for NamesCon Global tickets. Conference organizers are offering a 30% discount off of the current pricing and giving purchasers a free second ticket with the purchase. Here’s the tweet with the special offer and discount link:

If I am reading it correctly, people who purchase a ticket for the NamesCon Global conference by December 26th (using the discount code) will get two tickets for a total price of $521.99, inclusive of the EventBrite fees.

I bought two conference tickets this year, and I paid more for them separately than I would have paid using this offer. It’s not really a big deal because I would not have been comfortable waiting this long to buy my ticket anyway, but had I waited I would have saved money.

If you and a colleague or business associate are still thinking about going to NamesCon Global this year, now is probably a good time to confirm that. The conference will be held in a little over a month (January 29th – February 1st, 2020) in Austin, Texas.

Here’s what NamesCon said about James in this morning’s announcement:

Rick Schwartz Polling on Asheville Meetup

Rick Schwartz hosted a domain investor meetup in late Summer in Asheville, North Carolina. I heard it was well attended for a relatively small gathering, and I also heard from several attendees who went and had an enjoyable time talking about domain names. I was riding in the PMC on that weekend, so I was unable to attend this year.
