If you are going to be at the ICANN 48 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina later this month, you might consider attending the information session for the recently established Domain Name Association (DNA). The event will be held on November 20, 2013 from 3 – 5pm at the Alvear ART Hotel located at Suipacha 1036 in Buenos Aires. A cocktail reception will follow beginning at 5pm. Organizers would like attendees to register prior to the event.
Here’s more information about The DNA and the companies who are involved in the organization, including some heavy hitters like Google, Demand Media, and GoDaddy:
“With hundreds of existing domains and thousands more hitting the market, DNA is the only organization that will represent the interests of the entire industry. The DNA will allow its member companies to have a voice, be a decision-maker, and become an influencer in the greatly changing domain name industry. The DNA offers a wide range of membership levels, based on how strongly your company seeks to support the mission of the DNA. The growing roster of members includes ARI Registry Services, Demand Media, Donuts, Inc., FairWinds Partners LLC, GoDaddy, Google, What Box?, and more.”
If I was attending ICANN 48, this is an event I would try to make.
