Domainer Mardi Gras on Hiatus for 2011

A college friend emailed me on Sunday to see if we could get a group of us to hit up Mardi Gras this year, and I realized that I hadn’t received any emails or heard anything about Domainer Mardi Gras this year.

I assumed it might have been cancelled or postponed in light of the heavy load of conferences in the beginning of the year, so I reached out to Michael Ward, Director of Marketing for Sure enough, Domainer Mardi Gras is on hiatus for 2011.

According to Michael, due to the Domain Roundtable conference  “in the Bahamas, along with ICANN SF taking place also in  March, we decided to not host DMG this year.” This is a bummer. Last year, I was scheduled to go but got snowed in, and the prior year I also had a conflict.

IMO, it’s a smart move to postpone it though, rather than compete with the other conferences. Michael hinted that the show  or a meet up of some sort could happen next year, and it’s possible that it might take place during Jazz Fest, another fun annual event in New Orleans. I love Mardi Gras, but Jazz Fest would be just as fun.
