NamesCon Announces NamesCon Global Austin Conference Date (Updated)

Important Update: On July 29, conference organizers announced a date change. NamesCon Global will be held January 29 – February 1, 2020.

NamesCon made a couple of important announcements related to its 2020 conference in an email sent to subscribers this morning. Of greatest interest to me is the date for NamesCon Global 2020 in Austin, Texas has been set. The conference will be held January 26-29, 2020. January 29 – February 1 Conference organizers previously announced that NamesCon would no longer be held in Las Vegas after 2019.

The venue for NamesCon Global 2020 will be the Capital Factory in downtown Austin. I understand the Capital Factory has an exhibition area, presentation stages, along with meeting rooms and lounge areas. Capital Factory is well known in the region for hosting other tech conferences and events. For those traveling to Austin from out of town, I do not see anything about a conference hotel in the email. The website says something about hotel recommendations coming soon, but attendees who want to lock their travel plans in now can probably find hotel rooms in the area with ease.

NamesCon organizers also announced something called Domain Economic Forum. Here’s how this was described in the email:

“Get ready to experience the evolution of NamesCon— our flagship event become the largest and most anticipated domain industry event of the year, and now we’re moving to Austin to establish the Domain Economic Forum.

This domain-focused conference will highlight the economy that is built around domain names, serving as an invitation for the domain industry’s main players to re-establish themselves in the context of a larger tech sphere. Together we’ll make the most of the entrepreneurial and creative elements of this tech-forward city. Through industry-leader keynotes, expert panels, hands-on workshops, and a live domain auction, you’ll come face to face with the entire ecosystem of the domain-name economy like never before.”

With the news today, organizers also opened registration for the conference via EventBrite, offering a discounted rate of $349. The email said the rate will increase to $499 on July 31.

  1. Still a small remnant left of the new gtld yahoos trying to sucker-sell their .crapolla, and until they wither up and disappear, I don’t want to waste my money. They should all be gone by next year so I’ll plan on going then.
