NamesCon 2023 Registration is Open with Discounted Tickets

0

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:

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.
