GoDaddy will be hosting a meetup for domain investors and customers at its Cambridge, Massachusetts headquarters. The meetup will be held on Wednesday, September 12th from 5pm – 8pm. Cambridge is a short drive or T ride (Kendall Square) from Boston. The GoDaddy office is located at 1 Main Street in Cambridge, at the end of the Longfellow Bridge.
There will be free food and drinks for people who come. There is no cost to attend the event. This is a good opportunity to meet some of the people who work on the Afternic side of the business selling domain names on behalf of investors.
Joe Styler, who is helping to organize the event, told me they “plan on giving people a sneak peek at what we have coming for domain investors and sharing some best practices for domain investing.”
People who are interested in attending the event are asked to RSVP by on the CambridgeMeetup.info website that was set up for the event. I think I will be there and will see if you there if you can make it.
Thanks for sharing this. I will be there too and look forward to seeing everyone at the event.
Sounds like an event for VIP’s and high spending clients.
If that were the case, why would they share the info with me to disseminate to everyone? This is open to the domain investing public not a select group.
You just proved my point. They specifically asked you, a high spending VIP GoDaddy client to advertise their special event.
Sorry, that doesn’t make sense and it does not prove your point. In fact, I think it actually proves your assumption is incorrect.
Joe Styler asked me to publish an article on DomainInvesting.com to make people aware of the meetup. I assume he asked me because I publish one of the most widely read publications in the domain investment business and more people will learn about it by reading this article.
If this was “an event for VIP’s and high spending clients” like you suggested, he probably would have sent me an invitation and asked me NOT to write about it so the UIPs and low spending clients don’t catch wind of it.
I think this will be a mix of people in the area – and I bet there will be quite a few who don’t do any business with GoDaddy.
I don’t see the meetup mentioned on any other domain blog or website.
Guess they didn’t get the memo.
Perhaps it wasn’t of interest them. Perhaps they didn’t think it was worth writing something I already covered. Perhaps it was sent to me because I live in Boston and would be more relevant to me. I have no idea why others didn’t write about it but I know it is open to any domain investor.
Can confirm, this is an event for anyone in the domain investing community to come and see our Cambridge operation. You’ll get a chance to see the office and hang out with our product, engineering, sales, and support teams. Joe and I are trying to get as much exposure as possible because there’s nothing better for a company than direct interactions with its customers.
What time will the GoDaddy corporate helicopter be picking me up for the private VIP pre-party for big spenders?
(I’m kidding of course.)
You still need to spend more money at GoDaddy to get the Platinum Helicopter Package. Lol
Good luck with the event, Paul.
Anyone is welcome if they’re in the area. Please rsvp so we know how many people to expect.
Good luck with the meetup, Joe.
Thanks for sharing, Elliot. This sounds pretty cool. I just signed up.
Sounds great. Would love to attend, but no longer in the area.
@Elliot the official helicoper of GoDaddy Cambridge is Uber so just let us know what time to swoop in 🙂
I’m flying in from Canada for this meetup because we all know it’s not a legitimate domain name event without at least one token Canadian, eh. Thank you GoDaddy for hosting this event, and thank you Elliot for spreading the word. I look forward to making new contacts and catching up with old friends. See you in Boston!
