I just started to do some research on my flight and hotel for NamesCon in Austin. After a date change was announced, NamesCon Global 2020 will be held from January 29-February 1, 2020. Conference organizers also announced a special conference discount is available for the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown (not to be confused with the similarly named Omni Austin Hotel at Southpark):
I want to share an update with you that I just received from NamesCon organizers. The date of the NamesCon Global conference in Austin, Texas has been changed. NamesCon Global 2020 will be held from January 29-February 1, 2020. It had previously been scheduled for a few days prior.
Here’s the email that was sent with more details:
One of my favorite parts of NamesCon Europe in Portugal was the sunset cruise organized and sponsored by Giuseppe Graziano, founder of LXME. It was a nice evening to see some of Lisbon’s sights from the water, and there was a strong turnout. Jeff Sass, CMO of the .Club Registry, took a video of the cruise, and I thought I would share the 5 minute highlight reel.
As NamesCon Europe concludes in Cascais, Portugal, NamesCon CEO Soeren von Varchmin announced the locations for the 2020, 2021, and 2022 conferences. NamesCon Europe 2020 will take place in Budapest, Hungary, NamesCon Europe 2021 will be held in Rome, Italy, and NamesCon Europe 2022 will be held in Cologne, Germany.
Important Update: On July 29, conference organizers announced a date change. NamesCon Global will be held January 29 – February 1, 2020.
NamesCon made a couple of important announcements related to its 2020 conference in an email sent to subscribers this morning. Of greatest interest to me is the date for NamesCon Global 2020 in Austin, Texas has been set. The conference will be held
January 26-29, 2020. January 29 – February 1 Conference organizers previously announced that NamesCon would no longer be held in Las Vegas after 2019.
If you’re in the domain investment business and planning to attend NamesCon Europe in Portugal later on this month, ICANN is hosting a Domain Name Industry Stakeholder Training session a day before the conference. The session is free to attend and is scheduled for June 19 from 9am to 4pm.
