NamesCon Elaborates on 1-Day Event in India May 19 & Planning Another in China September 28 

The NamesCon conference has big plans to expand the brand far beyond their annual event each January in Las Vegas where the most recent one - the 4th in the series - concluded January 25, 2017. It is a natural progression since the conference was acquired by World Hosting Days (WHD) last year. WHD already stages popular conferences for the hosting industry around the world and already have the infrastructure in place to incorporate the closely related domain shows -  via NamesCon - into those international events. 

As we told you a couple of weeks ago, NamesCon will hold a one-day event in Mumbai, India on May 19, 2017. More details on that have now been released in a newsletter from the conference. NamesCon India will be held in conjunction with a WHD-India conference that will take place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai May 18-19. The NamesCon India web page notes, "NamesCon India will be jam-packed day with three keynote presentations and six informative sessions where industry experts will discuss the hottest topics and the latest advancements in the domain industry. Plus, the event will close with one of our renowned domain auctions!"

The same newsletter NamesCon revealed that planning is also underway for a one-day event in China on September 28, 2017 - however no further details, including the city or venue, has been released yet. More information is to be revealed in upcoming newsletters. As of this writing the WHD website doesn't list any conferences in Asia this year, so it to remains to be seen if NamesCon China will stand alone or be part of as yet unannounced WHD conference. 

Last year NamesCon ran a four-day September show in Hong Kong under its Domainfest brand but WHD has decided to retire the Domainfest name and run all of their domain events under the NamesCon banner.
