Registration is Open for NamesCon Global 2024

NamesCon Global emailed past attendees this afternoon to announce that registration is now open for next year’s conference. NamesCon Global will be held June 5-8, 2024 at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown in Austin, Texas. Tickets can be purchased via EventBrite.

NamesCon is currently offering a “Super Early Bird Special” for those who purchase a conference pass now. The Standard pass costs $349 and the Channel Pass costs $549. The email says that this will be the biggest discount on tickets. In general, though, if you’re not certain you can attend right now, there are usually special deals offered by conference organizers leading up to the conference.

One of the largest domain name sales in history was Fairway’s acquisition of Home.com. The deal was brokered by Andrew Miller (Hilco Digital Assets) and Larry Fischer (GetYourDomain.com), but terms of the deal were kept private.

At NamesCon a couple of weeks ago, Andrew, Larry, and Fairway’s David Lazowski had a conversation about the Home.com acquisition. The keynote discussion is embedded below:

Full Agenda Released for NamesCon Global


The 2023 edition of NamesCon Global is coming up in just over a month from now. The annual domain industry conference is being held at the Omni Hotel Downtown in Austin, Texas from May 31 – June 3.

I received an email from conference organizers this morning announcing the entire conference agenda has been released and published online. For those of you debating whether or not to attend based on the conference content can now see the panels and speakers who are scheduled to participate.

NamesCon 2023 Registration is Open with Discounted Tickets


NamesCon announced that registration for its 2023 NamesCon Global event is now open with a discounted early bird rate. The “Super Early Bird Special” ticket price is $349 or $549 for a Channel Pass. This is 65% off the regular price, according to the email I received. Tickets can be purchased via EventBrite, and the announced prices do not include ticket fees.

NamesCon 2023 will take place from May 31–June 3 at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown in Austin, Texas. NamesCon has become the de facto domain industry annual conference.

Conference organizers will be sending a hotel discount code for conference attendees to save on hotel rooms during the event.

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:
