Frank Schilling of Uniregistry and Antony Van Couvering of Minds and Machines will be co-hosting an event focusing on new gTLD domain names. The event is called Silicon Beach TLD Fest, and it will be held on April 21, 2014 at 6pm at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica, California.
Here is how the event is being billed according to the event website:
“Over 500,000 new domains have already been registered in 70+ new Top Level Extensions including .berlin, .photography, and .sexy. Meet two of the leading companies in this new space, MINDS + MACHINES and UNIREGISTRY.
Learn what the new TLD revolution means for your startup – and how you can make money in this exciting new space. Legendary domainer Frank Schilling will share his personal perspective.”
The event is free to attend, but there is a 150 person capacity. Judging by the popularity of Southern California domainer meetups and by the number of people that always seem to crowd around Frank at domain conferences, I would bet this event will be at capacity. People who want to learn more about the new TLD process should consider attending this event. I would assume Frank and Antony will be willing to answer questions about the gTLD process as well as offer their thoughts on these new domain names.
Reservations are required in order to attend, and they will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Although I haven’t bought many new gTLD domain names, I would attend if I lived in that area.
