NamesCon organizers announced a virtual conference to be held this coming September. NamesCon 360° will be held virtually from September 9 – 11, 2020. At the time of the announcement, organizers had not yet made tickets available to purchase or announced ticket prices.
This morning, tickets for NamesCon 360° went on sale for $59. The ticket price includes the following:
Access to great live and on-demand content—global and regional
Network with fellow investors, industry experts, and key industry players from around the globe
Flexible integration into your workday
Access NamesCon 360° from any of your devices—or several at once.
Save time and money, leave a smaller environmental footprint
People who purchase NamesCon 360° tickets before July 31 will also get a swag bag mailed to them.
As I mentioned previously, I am not a fan of virtual conferences and events. I tend to lose focus. I guess it’s not much different than when I sit in the audience at a conference panel and use my laptop or iPhone.
That being said, I am going to buy a NamesCon 360° ticket today. I appreciate attending NamesCon and know they rely on ticket sales to be able to continue producing conferences and events I want to attend. I don’t know if I am going to tune in to any of the panels or virtual events, but I think it is important to support this event.
I will “attend” if you pay me to virtual attend while I watch sumo wrestling at the same time.
$59? Not Free??
NamesCon is looking like a real “CON”, don’t you see it?
Get the sponsors to pay! This is not some kind of physical conference, right?
So, I guess we should all start paying $59 to use Google too…
See how dumb this is?
I totally agree: online conferences are not true substitutes to physical events, but organizers really need some support from us, if we need them to organize such events in the future. I’ve bought my ticket today.
