On January 28-31, all eyes in the domain industry space will turn to Las Vegas for NamesCon’s biggest event of the year. Of course, with such a big event in such an exciting location, our own MikeDemo, Brand Evangelist for BoldGrid, just had to add it to his calendar. NamesCon’s 2017 event brought in nearly 1300 delegates from around the world to discuss issues facing the domain industry. As new top-level domains (TLDs) have become available, demand has boomed. Thus, every year sees more and more companies entering this dynamic and highly-energized segment of the internet industry.NamesCon follows an important mandate of helping to connect the dots between people, companies, and across industries. The event affords exhibitors and attendees the opportunity to participate in a wide assortment of activities ranging from small, expert talks and fireside chats to larger panel discussions and keynote addresses. The evenings provide a number of opportunities for networking with activities like dinners, games, and live performances.
For those heavily in the domain space, a unique feature of NamesCon not found at many of the other events BoldGrid attends is the domain auction. These auctions often feature some of the world’s most valuable domains. If you have the resources to acquire such a domain, or simply want to see how much some of your favorite domains can sell for, you will not want to miss this exciting event.
MikeDemo will attend this year on behalf of BoldGrid. Though he will not have to man a booth this year, he will make himself available to attendees interested in learning more about BoldGrid, the upcoming Gutenberg integrations in the WordPress Core, and his predictions for the future of WordPress and the open source community at large.
Those interested in attending NamesCon 2018 can still obtain tickets by visiting the NamesCon website. While there, check out the agenda and learn more about the event’s various activities, lectures, and parties.
We hope to see you in Las Vegas!
