Once again, Monte Cahn (from Right of the Dot) is responsible for organizing and managing the NamesCon auction that is scheduled for January 30, 2020.

NamesCon just announced one of its marquee keynote speakers for the 2020 NamesCon Global conference later this month. Aman Bhutani, CEO of GoDaddy, will be one of the conference’s keynote speakers. Aman was named CEO of GoDaddy in September, when former CEO Scott Wagner departed due to an unspecified health issue.

Although the NamesCon email did not announce the date and time of Aman’s keynote address, I can see an unspecified keynote speaker slot on Thursday, January 30th from 1-2pm. NamesCon previously announced that James Booth will be a keynote speaker, and he is scheduled to take the podium on Friday, January 31st at 10am. You can view the full agenda on the NamesCon website.

Here’s the announcement that was shared by NamesCon this morning:
