Two More Keynotes Added to NamesCon Europe

NamesCon Europe added two additional keynote speakers to the agenda today. Frank Schilling, founder of Uniregistry, and professional surfer João de Macedo will be delivering keynote addresses during next month’s conference in Portugal. NamesCon previously announced the conference panel topics, as well as a keynote from another professional surfer, Andrew Cotton.

Here’s the information that was shared about the two keynotes in a newsletter sent this morning:

“First up is legendary entrepreneur and domain investor Frank Schilling. You may know him as the founder and guiding light of Uniregistry, but he does so much more. In an intimate fireside chat, he’ll be sharing some of his many investment insights, as well giving us a glimpse of his new projects.

We’re also welcoming João de Macedo, one of the best big wave surfers in the world. He caught his first waves just up the coast from Cascais, and became the first Portuguese—and European—pro surfer to qualify for the WSL Big Wave Tour… in which he made the top five. João will inspire you to hit the waves with us during our Beach Day!”

One neat aspect of NamesCon Europe is that there is a beach day on Saturday, June 22, and NamesCon attendees are going to have a chance to take a surf class. Portugal is known to have some of the best surfing in the world.

NamesCon Europe will take place in Cascais, Portugal from June 20-22, 2019. Cascais is a short drive or train ride from Lisbon. NamesCon organizers provided me with a discount code to offer readers that can be used to get a conference pass for 399 € instead of 549 €. (FYI, this is not an affiliate link).

  1. One surfer was not domain investor focused enough, so they got two surfers? Brilliant!

    “One neat aspect of NamesCon Europe is that there is a beach day on Saturday, June 22, and NamesCon attendees are going to have a chance to take a surf class.”

    A 30 euro value (for a group lesson at the Moana Surf School located on Guincho Beach where the lunch is being held), now yours for 399 euro. Although since they advertise those “team building” sorts of things where companies send their staff to do things they didn’t want to do in the first place, so the per-head rate is probably lower than the 30 euro retail small group rate. Of course, that’s not really fair, since the 399 euro also includes sitting inside and hearing two different surfers talk about surfing…. “Be bold, take risks! And the auction starts at 5!”

    But there’s nothing like the thrill of wondering about the romantic partners of all the people who have rented that wetsuit before you squeezed your junk into it.
