NamesCon Announces 2021 Schedule of Events

NamesCon was forced to make an adjustment to its schedule this year due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. NamesCon Europe, scheduled for August in Budapest, was cancelled, and the NamesCon Online event was successfully held in its place. With the Covid-19 coronavirus still infecting millions around the world, NamesCon has made some adjustments to its 2021 schedule of events.

This afternoon, conference organizers shared the dates and schedule for upcoming NamesCon events. I am told the email will be sent to people on the NamesCon mailing list sometime today:

NamesCon Should Consider a Hybrid Event

NamesCon Online concluded last week, and from what I can tell, the event was a very big success. Although I only caught a little bit as I had been traveling back from a long trip, I appreciate that I can log on to the conference website at my convenience to watch some of the panels that sound most interesting to me. These sessions will be available to event passholders until the end of September.

There have been several people who wrote about NamesCon Online, and it seems like many people who attended would like to see a similar virtual event in the future. Since I have not yet participated, I can’t give my opinion one way or the other. However, because it seems to have been such a big success, I think it would be great if NamesCon hosted a hybrid event in the future.

NamesCon Online Sessions Available Through September

I have been hearing pretty solid reviews about NamesCon Online, which concludes later on today. For those people who bought a conference pass but have not been able to attend any sessions, the panels will be available to view on the NamesCon Online website through the end of September:

NamesCon Newcomer? Get a Free Ticket

NamesCon Online is a virtual event this year, taking the place of the NamesCon Europe conference that can not be held due to the pandemic. The conference will be held next week, beginning September 9 and running through September 11. The cost to attend is $59 (plus the Eventbrite fee).

Are you thinking about virtually attending your first NamesCon conference next week? NamesCon is offering free conference passes to people who have not attended NamesCon before.

NamesCon Global Still Planned for January 2021

NamesCon is hosting an online domain industry conference, NamesCon Online, next month. The event will be held from September 9-11, 2020, and tickets to attend are an affordable $59. When I wrote about the NamesCon Auction earlier this week, I was under the impression that this event was taking the place of the NamesCon Global conference held each year in January. I was incorrect.

NamesCon Global is still scheduled to be held in Austin, Texas this coming January. Obviously, this event and its location depends on the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. We should have an update by the end of September or early October.

A representative from NamesCon shared the following comment with me discussing upcoming NamesCon events:

NamesCon Auction Now Live on GoDaddy Auctions

NamesCon is going to look much, much different this year. Not only is the event being held exclusively online, but it is also being held in September instead of January. One other major change is that the NamesCon domain name auction will be held on GoDaddy Auctions this year, and it appears that the auction is being run entirely in-house.

GoDaddy’s Joe Styler tweeted that the NamesCon auction is now live on GoDaddy Auctions. To access the auction, visit GoDaddy Auctions and choose the NamesCon Auction in the Popular Searches dropdown menu:
