Planning for DomainFest Global

Subscribe to Elliot's BlogIt’s time to start making plans to attend DomainFest in Hollywood January 27-30th at the Renaissance Hotel. Last year’s conference was one of the top industry conferences I attended, and I had to miss the first day. This is a great opportunity to network, and the price is only $895 until the end of December.
You do have some time, but I am recommending that you order your flight tickets (or at least price them out and follow) ASAP. I’ve heard prices may actually go down as a result of the dropping price of oil, but I wouldn’t be so sure of that.The Renaissance Hotel is offering discounts for conference attendees, so start your hotel search by calling them.
As you might imagine, I am taking a direct flight in to Burbank Airport on Jet Blue from New York’s JFK.   According to the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Burbank Airport was the second least expensive airport in the country in Q2 of 2008.   I paid under $325 round trip… not so bad.   I will also spend a few days in Burbank visiting some businesses.
With the economy in the shitter, this is a good year to attend DomainFest to network with others and see how the leaders are weathering this storm.

  1. I figured since I’m here in LA, it was a no-brainer to attend again, so I got my DF pass when it was $795! Looking forward to this event again, it was a good one last year. I use Burbank Airport a lot, it’s so easy to get in and out! If you want to tie up and do some local looking around Burbank etc. then, let me know Elliot, I take you to some nice expensive places. You can buy!!
