Photos & Highlights from Dubai's Annual Investment Meeting Where Sedo Put Domains in the Spotlight

Last Friday I told you about Sedo sending a trio from their top management team to Dubai to present domain names as potentially valuable assets to attendees at the 2017 Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) there. The three-day event that ended last night (Tuesday, April 4) at the Dubai World Trade Centre attracted over 15,000 investors from around the world who came seeking foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities in growing markets.

This was Sedo's first time as an exhibitor at a conference of this kind - the latest  in a long line of outreach efforts they have undertaken to grow the domain industry worldwide. With this one providing an opportunity to reach some of the world's top investors, Sedo went all in, sending CEO Tobias Flaitz, Director of Business Development and Operations

The top level investors who came to Dubai obviously have a lot of money to spend. They also have a lot of options. Convincing them that domains should be among the ones they seriously consider is an ambitious and expensive undertaking, and we appreciate Sedo taking on the challenge. They have made a long term commitment to educational initiatives like this and if their strategy succeeds, it will  pay major dividends for the industry at large for many years to come.
