Domain Boardroom Gearing Up For Second Annual DBR Fun Fest

Domain Boardroom  (DBR) is a private domain forum operated by Donna Mahony, and it boasts an active membership of almost 200 high caliber domain investors from around the world. Last year, members of DBR held their First Annual invitation only “UnConference”, called DBR FunFest. There were over 50 people in attendance. The group was composed mostly of active DBR members, several sponors, and a select few invited guests.

Planning is currently under way for this year’s Fun Fest. It will take place again in beautiful Dana Point, California in early May. DBR FunFest will play host to a deep sea fishing trip, kayaking, a beach luau, a golf tournament, and a poker tournament. In addition to all of these fun activities, much time is spent at this free conference in casual, spontaneous meetings and discussions. There are also several planned group meals.

There are still sponsorship opportunities available for various events and dinners during the conference. Sponsors interested in supporting this event will also be invited to spend time with this well connected and influential group of domainers.
To get in touch with the organizers, email Donna Mahony ( or Bob Olea ( Last year’s sponsorships filled up quickly. It is anticipated that this year’s gathering will be larger and sponsorship opportunities are expected to sell out again.

DBR is one of the two forums where I post and comment with any frequency, and it’s a great community.

  1. Tried to join a couple of months back, but was shut-down. After your 2010 article where you stated “Domain Boardroom, which in my opinion, is the best place to learn and share in a supportive environment”, I was hoping to get in and continue learning. Adam Dicker also suggested joining to learn and share. However, being a part-time domainer and relatively new at it, I suppose I’ll never be considered “a high caliber domain investor” and can only hope I can keep learning from blogs like yours and forums that are at least accessible for most.
