World Hosting Days Picks Las Vegas as Site for Their 3rd Annual WHD.USA Conference in September

World Hosting Days (WHD) has picked the location for their 3rd annual conference in the United States. WHD.USA 2017 will be held in Las Vegas September 11-12 and, given WHD's acquisition of the domain industry's largest conference, NamesCon, last year, you won't be surprised to hear that the hosting event will be held at the Tropicana Hotel. The Tropicana has hosted every previous NamesCon event (and will do again when the 5th annual show is staged there January 28-31, 2018).

WHD describes the USA show (one of several regional shows they operate around the world in addition to their massive annual WHD Global event that is held each March in Germany) as "the main industry event in North America. It is 

a two day celebration of the technology and incredible potential of the internet featuring inspiring keynotes from industry leaders, sessions on the latest business practices and trends, an exhibition hall featuring cutting edge technologies and services, fun networking events and an exciting hackathon that will bring great code to life. Our goal is to provide content and experiences that are fun and valuable to the entire industry."

I covered the inaugural WHD.USA event held in Pennsylvania in 2015 (that was followed by last year's show in Phoenix) and I can attest to the conference meeting its promise to provide a high value, entertaining event for attendees. I can also tell you that you will see many well-known figures in the domain industry there taking advantage of the cross pollination opportunities with the closely related hosting world. That makes it even more remarkable that the cost to attend is $0 - absolutely free admission - if you register no later than June 30 - and that includes lunch, snacks and coffee breaks!

In addition to their business sessions and keynote speeches, WHD.USA, like NamesCon puts a heavy emphasis on networking opportunities like the ConneXion Party (featuring the Lords of Uptime on stage). This and other events are designed to provide attendees with a relaxed atmosphere to connect, share experiences, and make new friends.
