Second Day at NamesCon Will Feature Four Keynote Addresses and Huge Live Domain Auction

Yesterday I told you about the new Network Lane that will make the opening day of the 2016 NamesCon conference (Sunday, January 10) something special. In addition to the "topic tables" I  highlighted,  many companies will have representatives on hand at other tables to answer questions from Noon to 6pm (I understand there may still be one or two tables left. If your company wants to secure one contact Terri Potratz at terri@namescon.com). 

Today I'll will touch on some of the key events scheduled on the second day (Monday, January 11) of the four-day conference that runs January 10-13 at the Tropicana Hotel. NamesCon believes 

in doing things in a big way and that even extends to their roster of keynote speakers. On Tuesday alone you can catch four keynote addresses beginning with a 10am talk from Dot Brand 360 Founder and CEO Jennifer Wolfe

At 11:45am in a highlight not only of the day but the entire week Uniregistry Founder and legendary domain investor Frank Schilling will take the stage. When Frank talks everyone wants to listen because few are as tuned into to every aspect of the domain business - where it's been and where it's headed - as Frank.

After lunch back to back keynotes featuring Tucows President and CEO Elliot Noss and Sedo Chief Sales Officer Solomon Amoako will get started at 1:30pm and provide a perfect lead in to the 2pm Right of the Dot Live Domain Auction that will run the rest of the afternoon. With an exceptionally strong auction catalog many expect this be to the most successful live domain auction in years.

Even better results are expected for the 2016 auction coming up Monday, January 11.

In addition to the keynotes and auctions there will be a full slate of business sessions Monday (Jan. 11) - with multiple events often going on simultaneously. You can check out the full agenda here. In my next post we'll take a look at a few of the things NamesCon has in store for Day 3 (Tuesday, January 12).
