Rick Schwartz Says Domain Investors Will Be Top Dogs When T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West Returns to Las Vegas in May 

With the 2014 T.R.A.F.F.I.C West just two months away, show co-founder Rick Schwartz sent a letter out to previous attendees over the weekend with an update on plans for the big event May 28-31 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. is sweetening the pot for this year's show by offering two Early Bird ticket packages that come with free nights at the world famous Bellagio where the 2013 conference was also held. The offers - good only until Friday, April 4 - are a $1495 

ticket that includes two free nights at the Bellagio or a $1595 ticket that will give you three free nights there.

To claim the free rooms you first register for the show, then book your rooms. T.R.A.F.F.I.C. will then issue a credit for each night that will appear on your room bill. Many will be at the Bellagio the entire week. T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West will again have two days or pre-show Cabana Networking May 27 & May 28 that I have always found to be worthwhile, so we will get into town early enough to take advantage of those as well.

One thing that has always set T.R.A.F.F.I.C. apart is its single-minded focus on domain investors. The arrival of hundreds of new gTLDs has naturally turned a lot of people's attention to new registry operators but T.R.A.F.F.I.C.'s focus remains the same. Schwartz underlined that in his letter writing, "We are a domain name investment show. We don't focus on registries or registrars but they are always welcome to participate and provide you valuable information for your business. Their job is to focus on us. Serve us and keep us in the loop. Understand their role and respect the fact that the choices are overwhelming and there has to be a reason to do business. A vision."

Schwartz added, "T.R.A.F.F.I.C. welcomes all gTLD companies to come and make their case why YOU should invest with THEM. They will have stage time to explain their visions and talk intelligently to the

#1 domain investor group in the world. Those without answers need not apply. We don't play games and we don't play favorites. We open it up to all."

By the way, this is the 10th anniversary year for the pioneering conference that staged the industry's first major gathering back in October 2004 when Schwartz and fellow T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Howard Neu welcomed their first guests to the debut event in Delray Beach, Florida.
