TRAFFIC Seeking Awards Nominations

Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu sent out their annual request for nominations for the 2012 TRAFFIC Awards. They added a new category this year for Broker of the Year. As I mentioned last year, I think this it’s a good idea because good domain brokers bring millions of dollars of liquidity to domain owners, and not all brokers are cut from the same cloth. I think they should add a Domain Attorney of the Year category, too.

This year, nominees are being sought for the following categories:

  • Best New Monetizing Solution
  • Best Overall Domain Solution
  • The “We Get It” Award
  • Developer of the Year
  • Broker of the Year
  • Best Domain Blog
  • Sponsor of the Year
  • Domainer of the Year
  • Domain Hall of Fame

Nominations are due back to Rick and Howard by  6pm EDT on Wednesday, July 25th. I have been nominated a few times and won a TRAFFIC Award once, and it’s an honor to be nominated and selected by my peers.

The 2012 TRAFFIC conference will be held October 7 – 10 at The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida.

  1. Thanks for all you do with your blog. You’re going to have my vote. I also think Mike Mann should be in the “Hall Of Fame” and Sedo should be “Broker Of The Year”.

      Thanks for the nice gesture.

      I also think Mike is deserving, and Sedo is certainly one of the best when it comes to selling domain names. Not sure if TRAFFIC is seeking company nominations or individual broker nominees (like Dave Evanson at Sedo or all of Sedo). I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
