Dubai to Get a New Domain Conference - Meetings in India & The Netherlands Also Imminent

NamesCon got the 2016 domain conference calendar off to a great start last month and after a brief respite this month, we will see successive meetings in India, Dubai and the Netherlands over the next three months. 

First up, on March 5-6 will be a special Workshop in Goa, India being put together by the Domain Name Owners Association of India who stage the annual DomainX conference (held last summer in Bangalore and coming up again August 6-7, 2016 in New Delhi). A web page for the first ever DomainX 

Workshop says it will be "an opportunity for 25-30 professionals to meet, greet and network with some of the best in domain name business in India (a list of those planning to attend is also shown on the Workshop web page). Tickets are just $19.99 with only a handful left when I checked today.

Last week organizers of a new conference - Domainers Meet - scheduled for Dubai April 23-24,2016 began advertising the event on DNJournal.com. They wiill be releasing full details in the days ahead - including the venue and admission cost. In the meantime you can sign up to be notified by email as soon as registration opens (and you will get a 20% discount for your early expression of interest). 

Their website says, "The unique aim of this meet will be to increase the awareness, reach and market of domain names in Middle East and Persian Gulf Countries. Domainers Meet will be an outstanding event with a group of likeminded people in one location with the sole purpose of networking."  

Rounding out the spring trifecta will be the previously announced 2016 Domaining Europe conference that will be held May 29-31 in the Netherlands at The Hague's historic Grand Hotel Amr‚th Kurhaus hotel. Today conference founder Dietmar Stefitz sent out an update on the event.

Dietmar said Braden Pollock will moderate again this year and .CLUB CMO Jeff Sass has joined the list of sponsors with plans to raffle off some state of the gadgets at the show's opening day Sunday luncheon. DomainSponsor's Simon Pupo is also rounding up some cool gadgets to give away. Sedo and MrDomain are also supporting this year's show that will have a 

DOTCOM Day on Monday (hosted by Verisign) and a NOTCOM Day on Tuesday (with a host to be announced). We do know who one of the marquee speakers on NOTCOM day will be. Dietmar said, "Mrs. Ingrid Baele, Head of IP at Philips has agreed to participate on the . BRAND panel, and will explain how they are going to use .philips.
