NamesCon Europe Unveils Panels

Organizers of the NamesCon Europe domain conference unveiled some of the expert panel discussions that will take place during the upcoming conference which will be held next month in Portugal. It looks like organizers have also released a tentative agenda for the conference.

Here are the topics for five of the panel discussions that were shared today, although the participating panelists were not yet announced:

  • Dark Horses and Long-Shot Opportunities: Where to Invest in Today’s nTLD Market
  • On the Basis of Trust: What to Look For in a Domain Broker
  • Does Silicon Valley Still Need Domains?: How to Approach Tomorrow’s Startups
  • No Exit: How to Maximize your Portfolio’s Value Without Selling
  • Navigating Appraised Value vs. Market Value of Your Domain

It looks like domain investor Braden Pollock will be the moderator for all of these panels.

As I mentioned two weeks ago, there will also be a live domain name auction held during this year’s conference. The auction is being organized by Right of the Dot, and I believe submissions are still being accepted.

NamesCon Europe will take place in Cascais, Portugal from June 20-22, 2019. The organizers provided me with a discount code to offer readers that can be used to get a conference pass for 399 € instead of 549 €. (It looks like an affiliate link but it is not nor am I being compensated).

  1. They should have another scammy “How to make money from trademarks” session, if that guy wants to write another check to be an “expert”.

    This still cracks me up:

    “Get ready for expert-led panel discussions, fireside chats with industry drivers, keynote talks with renowned thought leaders.”

    Platinum Sponsor: 8000 euro
    Speaking opportunity: 30 min Keynote

    Gold Sponsor: 5000 euro
    Speaking opportunity: guaranteed panel participation

    I’ll admit that charging people money to hear people who paid to speak is ingenious. But the only expertise required is knowing how to write a check.

  2. “Dark Horses and Long-Shot Opportunities: Where to Invest in Today’s nTLD Market”


    Sad that they are still pushing this agenda, little doubt to appeal to sponsors. Most people know ntlds are failing in the marketplace.
