NamesCon Returning in 2015 - Las Vegas Show Will Run January 11-14 at the Tropicana Hotel

After a very successful debut show this past January at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas the NamesCon conference today announced dates for a  return engagement in 2015 on the show's Facebook page. The conference will return to the Tropicana for an event that will get underway at 12 noon on Sunday, January 11, 2015 and continue through Wednesday, January 14.

Ultra low pricing was a key  part of NamesCon's winning formula in 2014 and it looks like it will be again in 2015. They have already put tickets on sale at an ICANN 49 special rate of  just $199 through April 1, 2014. After that you can still snag a $299 Early Bird rate through the end of May.  

NamesCon Founder Richard Lau

NamesCon Founder Richard Lau will again host the 2015 show. The domain industry veteran, aided mightily by Jodi Chamberlain and Jothan Frakes, managed to pull factions from every corner of the industry together for the crowd pleasing multi-track inaugural event that ran January 13-15, 2014. The organizers were able to land six  keynote speakers and produce 30 business sessions (featuring 100 speakers) in their first trip around the track. The show also featured a variety of social and networking events that drew very favorable reviews.

NamesCon was also able to secure an astonishing $79 a night room rate at the Tropicana Hotel. 2015 room rates are not yet available on the NamesCon site and I will be surprised if they are that low again. Prior to the 2014 show, the Tropicana had just finished a major remodeling and were cutting some great deals to get people to sample the impressively revamped facility. Even so, I would bet 

NamesCon still manages to lock in a below market rate for 2015. They have already shown the Tropicana they are capable of bringing hundreds of people from all over the world to the property at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. While NamesCon had over 500 people for their debut show, they are expecting over 800 in 2015.
