NamesCon 2015: More Time, More People, More Opportunities

NamesCon 2015

About this time last year, NamesCon 2014 was a napkin idea. In 90 days we put together a conference with 7 keynote speakers, 25 panels and over 100 panelists that won accolades from every corner of the internet naming space. Hearing that people did more business in their first day of NamesCon than during entire conferences elsewhere was not unusual. And the generosity of attendees came shining through at the record-breaking WaterNight to benefit WaterSchool’s clean water projects.

NamesCon was founded on the idea that a rising tide raises all boats.  We will all win by having everyone involved with internet naming in the same venue at the same time annually. When you think NamesCon, you know: “Vegas, January, Must Go.”

NamesCon 2015 will be held January 11 – 15, 2015 at the Tropicana Las Vegas. With over 800 attendees expected, it will be THE conference to kick-start your new year.     NamesCon will start on Sunday January 11th  with networking and an Intro Day agenda, and will go through the end of the day on Wednesday January 15th. Anyone involved in internet naming and digital branding needs to be at the annual NamesCon conference.

Sunday will open with Networking that will be especially suited for first time attendees, and the Opening Cocktail Party. The Cocktail Party last year saw almost every attendee in the house and we encourage everyone to fly in to Vegas on Sat or the morning of Sunday. Coming in on Monday will mean you have missed key networking events.

Monday through Wednesday will be packed with three full days of panels, keynote speakers, workshops and networking. Hear from experts and panels in three different tracks. There will be more time between sessions to facilitate you getting to the sessions you want to see and to allow time for you to network with people from the sessions.

The opening night cocktail party will be much larger than last year and will accommodate all attendees. WaterNight was a huge success last year and will be even larger to provide quieter areas outside for conversations while the wild, mad house inside will provide all the “Vegas experience” you need.

People have agreed that NamesCon is the one non-ICANN conference that you go to each year.   More than ever, NamesCon will be focused on business networking.   By taking last year’s winning formula, and adding an extra day of conference agenda, more attendees and more networking opportunities, NamesCon is poised to be the conference that you know everyone has in their calendar to attend.

I look forward to seeing you in January in Vegas @ NamesCon!
