If you’re in the domain investment business and planning to attend NamesCon Europe in Portugal later on this month, ICANN is hosting a Domain Name Industry Stakeholder Training session a day before the conference. The session is free to attend and is scheduled for June 19 from 9am to 4pm.
The ICANN Twitter account tweeted about the session today:
If you are involved in the #DNS industry, join us in #Lisbon, Portugal, at our training workshop for Domain Name Industry Stakeholders. Attendance is free, and space is limited.

While NamesCon Europe will be held in Cascais, Portugal, the ICANN session will be held in Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon. I presume most travelers who are not from Portugal will likely travel through Lisbon prior to the conference.
Here’s what ICANN shared about this session and who the target audience is:
“This initiative is part of ICANN’s efforts to encourage effective engagement from its stakeholders, and invite newcomers to participate in ICANN. Speakers will include ICANN org members, as well as ICANN community experts.
Who should attend:
-DNS Industry professionals
-IP right holders
-Registrars, newly accredited by ICANN or interested in ICANN accreditation
-Staff at ICANN contracted parties, particularly those involved in ICANN’s compliance processes and policy work”
It seems like it would be more beneficial to domain industry service providers rather than domain investors, but it could also be a good opportunity for investors to learn more about how ICANN works.
