This morning, NamesCon announced that James Booth will be a keynote speaker at the NamesCon Global conference in January. I believe James buys and sells millions of dollars worth of domain names annually, and I think he has a great feel for the current domain aftermarket conditions, especially at the highest level. To date, NamesCon has not announced any other conference speakers.
Since there are likely several other keynote speaker slots and quite a few other speaking opportunities, I am curious who readers would like to hear from at NamesCon this year. I think we can bet on hearing from GoDaddy’s aftermarket team, including Paul Nicks, Alan Shiflett, and Joe Styler. I think we can also count on hearing from Zak Muscovitch and Nat Cohen from the ICA. I am sure Andrew Rosener and Braden Pollock will also be part of several panels or moderate panels.
Here are several suggestions for people who don’t typically speak at conferences (nor do they necessarily post regularly in forums or social media), who I think would also make great keynote speakers to offer their perspective on the domain name market.
- Reza Sardeha
- Alan Dunn
- Alan Hack
- Matt Serlin and Phil Lodico
- Kate Buckley
- Ivan Rasskazov
- Lori Schulman
- Richard Kirkendall
- Scott Day and Jay Chapman
Who would you like to see on a keynote stage or hear from in a panel at NamesCon?
They should invite ethos or Icann
How much money they are raping us off.
HOW About the chairman of the FCC?
Oh..invite Mark Cuban…it is in his neighborhood
Thanks, but no thank you.
People hear enough from me here.
No matter the speaker would be nice if all presentations were professionally recorded for rebroadcast later… sometimes the speakers are recorded via iPhones by audience members but those don’t do justice to the presenters. Even if there needed to be a small fee to watch, it would be beneficial for those of us who can’t make the trip.
