Soeren von Varchmin on Why You Should Attend NamesCon

0

NamesCon Online is coming up at the end of January, and it will be the second iteration of the conference to run entirely online. This morning, NamesCon uploaded a video featuring CEO Soeren von Varchmin, who discussed why domain investors will want to attend and participate in the conference:

The NamesCon Online event will be held from Wednesday, January 27 – Friday, January 29, 2021. At $79+ the EventBrite fees, the conference passes are far less expensive than the typical in-person conference passes. Attendees also don’t have to pay travel costs to participate in the event. The conference agenda will be posted the in approximately two weeks.

NamesCon is planning to host additional events later in 2021, and the NamesCon Online conference will be a strong kickoff to the year.

Registration Opens for 2021 NamesCon Online

Earlier this month, NamesCon announced its 2021 schedule of events. The annual NamesCon Global event that has been held each January (last in Austin, Texas) will be a virtual event called NamesCon Online. The exclusively online conference will take place January 27-29, 2021. NamesCon has plans for a hybrid and an in-person event for later on in the year, but I imagine the status of the Covid-19 pandemic will determine whether in-person events will be able to be held in 2021.

NamesCon Announces 2021 Schedule of Events

NamesCon was forced to make an adjustment to its schedule this year due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. NamesCon Europe, scheduled for August in Budapest, was cancelled, and the NamesCon Online event was successfully held in its place. With the Covid-19 coronavirus still infecting millions around the world, NamesCon has made some adjustments to its 2021 schedule of events.

This afternoon, conference organizers shared the dates and schedule for upcoming NamesCon events. I am told the email will be sent to people on the NamesCon mailing list sometime today:

NamesCon Should Consider a Hybrid Event

NamesCon Online concluded last week, and from what I can tell, the event was a very big success. Although I only caught a little bit as I had been traveling back from a long trip, I appreciate that I can log on to the conference website at my convenience to watch some of the panels that sound most interesting to me. These sessions will be available to event passholders until the end of September.

There have been several people who wrote about NamesCon Online, and it seems like many people who attended would like to see a similar virtual event in the future. Since I have not yet participated, I can’t give my opinion one way or the other. However, because it seems to have been such a big success, I think it would be great if NamesCon hosted a hybrid event in the future.

NamesCon Online Sessions Available Through September

I have been hearing pretty solid reviews about NamesCon Online, which concludes later on today. For those people who bought a conference pass but have not been able to attend any sessions, the panels will be available to view on the NamesCon Online website through the end of September:
