NamesCon Price Increasing in 2 Days

NamesCon founder Richard Lau sent me an email to remind me that the price of NamesCon tickets will be increasing on November 1. The discounted $399 rate is good through tomorrow, at which point I am told the conference ticket cost will increase to $599 (it will later increase to $799 and then it will be $999 at the door).

To date, 520 people have registered to attend NamesCon. This is double the number of registered attendees at this time last year. Richard let me know that organizers are expecting more than 1,000 attendees at the  conference.

The NamesCon  agenda is expected to be finalized by the end of November. I am sure there will be interesting panels and talks, but I am mostly interested in the networking opportunities. Richard told me NamesCon will “have a unique networking exhibition we are setting up for opening day from noon to six pm.” He didn’t tell me what it is but it sounds intriguing.

At last year’s conference, I found there to be a very wide mix of attendees from all aspects of the domain industry.  It was a  great way to connect with colleagues, and I am already registered to attend the conference.

NamesCon is the largest domain industry event of the year, and it will be held at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas from January 10-13, 2016.

For full disclosure, I worked out an advertising deal with Richard, and in exchange for advertising on my blog this year, I will be giving away conference passes to readers. I have not determined how or when I will be giving them away, and I welcome your suggestions in the comment section. I want to make sure that the people to whom I give a pass will be able to attend.

  1. Hi Elliot. I will watch your posts to find out how you’ll handle the passes. I’d love to go and would go if I had one. I’m trying to get there anyway!

    Thanks for your awesome contributions to the industry. I read your blog and Twitter posts daily.

  2. Hello Elliot, I am a big fan of and will look for your post about the Namescon ticket giveaway. I live in Las Vegas but haven’t had the opportunity to attend NamesCon yet – I’m hoping to attend this year and looking for tickets. Thanks and keep up the great job educating about domain investing.
