Domain Conference Doubleheader! Domainfest Asia Begins in Hong Kong 5 Days After THE Domain Conference Ends in Florida

On Friday we will be on our way to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to join over 200 other domain industry investors, brokers, developers and service providers for the 2016 edition of THE Domain Conference (TDC) that runs at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Hotel Saturday through 

Wednesday (September 10-14). Several TDC attendees will be away from home a good bit longer than that though. That's because after TDC closes some will head across the Pacific Ocean for this year's Domainfest Asia conference that gets underway in Hong Kong just five days after TDC ends. 

The Hong Kong event, under the Domainfest@Ion.asia banner, will be held at the Cyberport business park September 19-22 in the follow up to a successful debut show in Macau last year. It represents a merging of two separate entities. In 2014 

DotAsia Organisation founded IoN Asia (IoN standing for Internet of Names was started as a domain industry publication, dedicated to all things domains, with a focus on Asia. However, this year, together with DOMAINfest, IoN launches the four-day DOMAINfest@IoN.Asia conference that will connect Asian and Western domain markets through informative panels and business networking sessions.

The joint effort will make this year's show considerably larger with more than 200 attendees, over 40 speakers and more than 30 companies sponsoring the conference. The event will be hosted by hosted by industry leaders  Jothan Frakes (Co-Founder of DOMAINfest and NamesCon), Edmon Chung, (CEO of DotAsia and Simon Cousins (CEO at Allegravita and a renowned expert on the Chinese domain market.

The Domainfest Asia speakers list shows an impressive roster that includes at least four experts that will also be speaking at THE Domain Conference - Michael Gilmour (ParkLogic.com), Jeff Sass (.CLUB), Braden Pollock (LegalBrandMarketing.com) and Joe Styler (GoDaddy). Domainfest Asia  highlights will also include four separate domain auctions conducted by China's leading auction houses and a special .shop auction.

The September twin bill of TDC and Domainfest@IoN.asia will make this an especially exciting and productive month for the industry on both sides of the Pacific!
