I want to thank the people who turned out for the domain investor meetup in Boston last night. I especially appreciate the people who came from out of town for the event – as far away as Missouri, Iowa, and New York. In addition to having a great time networking, the event raised about $1,200 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via my Pan-Mass Challenge fundraising.
Bill’s Bar on Lansdowne Street played host to the event, and they basically gave us the entire restaurant to walk around and chat. Because it was a fundraising event for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, they also were nice enough to give us a ton of appetizers to eat during the event at no cost. Bill’s Bar is located right behind Fenway Park, and it is my go to spot for dinner before Red Sox games. I sincerely appreciate their hosting the event.
I want to give a very big thank you to Sedo for sponsoring the event and paying for the open bar for all event attendees. Sedo also had a large employee turnout, and I was able to meet quite a few people I had not met previously and re-connect with people I see occasionally. In addition to this, Sedo also made a generous donation to Dana Farber to help me reach my fundraising goal. Thank you, Sedo!
All around, it was a really good time last night, and I appreciate those who came out for networking and fundraising!
Here are some photos of the event, via Sedo’s Twitter feed:

That was very generous of Sedo to support your meetup. Sedo, nice job.
It looks like Sedo has been putting Dave on the rack to generate more million dollar sales.
And, it looks like Larry made it up there from NYC.
Yep… was great to see Mr. Fischer.
Thanks for organizing the Boston Meetup, and thanks to Sedo for sponsoring.
It was great to meet up with you, Dave Evanson, Larry Fischer, and the teams from Sedo, DomainNameSales, Igloo, and Afternic. Everyone attending was extremely generous with their time, as well as their knowledge on trends, new gTLDs, IP issues, economic effects, and even travel.
I highly recommend that people make the time to attend these events. You’ll leave knowing a lot more than when you came in. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Someone from Iowa came? It has felt for years like I was the only one out here who knows the business! Glad to hear a fellow Hawkeye has figured it out. Would be awesome if you could somehow share the name so I could reach out to her/him? I understand if that’s not something with which you are comfortable. Just wish I was close enough to have attended the event myself.
