After holding its successful DomainFest conference at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica, California last year for the first time, Oversee.net just announced next year’s DomainFest will be held in the same location from February 1-3, 2011. I am happy to hear this because I thought the accommodations were great, not to mention the fantastic location. In addition, the entire hotel is reserved for the conference, making private meetings easy.
If you want to attend the conference, jump on Farecast (a travel forecast website now owned by Bing) and plug in your travel information so you can stay on top of the best airfare. You should probably either fly into LAX or the Burbank Airport just a few miles further but with less air traffic and potential delays.
I am pretty sure there were over 600 attendees at this year’s conference, so if you want to meet a significant amount of active domain investors, this is the time to do it. The conference is also known for its now annual Playboy Mansion party (as if you didn’t know this already).
Press release is below:
LOS ANGELES (June 22) — DomainSponsor, the domain name monetization division of Oversee.net ®, announced today its annual DOMAINfest Global conference will be held February 1-3, 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif.
Based on popular demand, the conference will once again be at the luxurious Fairmont Miramar Hotel. The entire hotel property has been reserved exclusively for this event, in order to create a relaxed, intimate environment for networking and personal meetings.
Speakers, Agenda and Evening Entertainment
Attendees can expect an agenda offering thought-provoking sessions, expert panelists, business building networking opportunities and first-class evening entertainment.
The highlights from last year’s conference included a keynote fireside chat with Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh, plus DomainSponsor’s Pinup Paradise Fundraising Party at the Playboy Mansion, benefiting Jenny McCarthy’s Generation Rescue Foundation. More than 650 domain name investors, online marketing and advertising professionals, and leading service providers engaged in meaningful discussions and good fun at DOMAINfest Global 2010.
