First Round of Speakers Named for New DomainingAmericas Conference Coming to Brazil in October

Back in April  I told you about a new domain conference - DomainingAmericas - that is coming to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil October 6 & 7, 2018. Since then show founder Abner Duarte of PremiumDomains.com.br has been busy putting the agenda together and assembling an all-star line-up of speakers for the event that will be held at the five-star Grand Hyatt Rio De Janiero. With DomainingAmericas now just two months away that process and other final preparations are accelerating. 

Duarte, a domain industry veteran who lives in Boston but is a native of Brazil, had this to say about why he wanted to bring a major conference to his homeland. "With more than 200 million people, Brazil is the populous country in South America. The most influential brands in Brazil are technology companies and as a domain investor, who's been investing in the South American domain market place for over two decades the market place has significantly grown over the last 20 years. Investors, startups, registries, registrars, registrants, hosting and eCommerce companies have flocked into the market, so the time is right!"

To make sure everything comes together the way he envisions it, Duarte just brought veteran conference producer Jodi Chamberlain of 32Events on board to handle event logistics and speaker co-ordination in the final run up to the show. As many of our readers know, Jodi was Director of the first two NamesCon conferences in Las Vegas and has also helped produced many other major conferences, including T.R.A.F.F.I.C. events and DomainingEurope (now NamesCon Europe). Jodi was just in touch today to tell me about some of the speakers that are now  confirmed for Domaining Americas. They include: 

Rubens Kuhl (Product Marketing Manager of Brazil's .BR Registry ). The .BR ccTLD is the world's 8th largest ccTLDs in total registrations. The .BR Registry takes pride in  investing in innovative actions and projects that help improve and expand Internet infrastructure in Brazil.
