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:

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:

Clubhouse Panel at NamesCon Online

One of the nice things about hosting an entirely virtual conference is that organizers have more flexibility when it comes to panels and keynotes. Some breaking news here or there, and NamesCon Organizers can quickly put together a discussion panel without much maneuvering of the agenda.

This morning, Andrew Rosener reported that he acquired RL.org for $13,000 from Aishwin Vikhona. Ordinarily, this relatively small deal wouldn’t really register much on people’s radar (it doesn’t even rank in the top 30 .org sales in the last year, according to NameBio). The sale was notable because of the venue for the acquisition – Clubhouse:

NamesCon Online 2021 is coming up next week. This industry conference is taking place entirely online due to the global pandemic, and the conference will be held on a customized platform. In anticipation of the conference, NamesCon shared a video to help conference attendees explore how NamesCon Online will operate and look when it goes live next week.

Soeren von Varchmin on Why You Should Attend NamesCon

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.
