New Wrinkle at NamesCon: Network Lane Will Bring Attendees & Experts Together on Opening Day

The 3rd annual NamesCon conference gets underway a a week from Sunday (January 10, 2016) at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. Show organizers will introduce a new Network Lane on opening day that will give attendees an opportunity to meet a wide variety of industry experts face to face and ask them any questions they may have. 

Network Lane will open at 12 Noon on Sunday (Jan. 10) and remain open until 6pm. Attendees will find four different tables set up in the meeting room with a different topic and different set of experts at each one. Every hour on the hour, a new group of experts will take over the tables and hold court on a new set of topics. It will be a golden opportunity to get a diverse domain education in the course of a single afternoon. I wouldn't be surprised if many find the value they get from the Network Lane portion of the four-day show alone worth the entire cost of NamesCon admission (which, by the way, if 40% off through Thursday, Dec. 31 - That's $599 rather than the $999 it will cost at the door).

To give you a specific example of how Network Lane will work, in the opening hour, from 12 Noon to 1pm, there will be tables dedicated to ccTLDs (Table A), Maxxing Out the Drop (Table B), Leasing a Domain (Table C) and GeoDomains/City TLDs (Table D). You can get tips at Table A from Marco Hoffman (InterNetX) and Crystal Petersen (Neustar) while Chris Ambler (GoDaddy), Trish Leighton (SnapNames/Web.com) and Barbara Sher (Web.com/SnapNames) will be at Table B. Table C will feature attorneys Karen Bernstein and Zak Muscovitch and you will find Joe Alagna (101Domain), Katrin Ohlmer (dotBerlin) and Lori Anne Wardi (Neustar) at Table D.  Then, every hour that follows will bring a new set of experts and new topics to each table. You can see the complete list of topics and experts (as well as details about each) on

NamesCon Co-Founder

the NamesCon agenda page (where you will also find that a lot more will be going on in addition to Network Lane during the first business day Sunday). 

There will obviously be plenty to keep you busy on opening day but you will also have plenty of time to kick back and relax when Rightside hosts the Welcome to NamesCon 2016 Opening Night Party from 8-11pm. 

I'll have more on each day's schedule in upcoming posts this week. In the meantime I would also recommend you read NamesCon Co-Founder Richard Lau's fascinating account of how and why NamesCon was launched in the first place. The section about NamesCon concludes our current Cover Story about Richard's remarkable life titled A Walking Miracle: After Getting a Second Chance at Life Richard Lau is Determined to Give Back. It's a great way to learn about NamesCon and Richard's inspiring background before you head out to Las Vegas. We are looking forward to seeing many of you there!
