Like the Lakers, DOMAINfest Global is GoingTo Repeat By Bringing Their Winning Formula Back to L.A. in 2011 

After the 2010 DOMAINfest Global conference wrapped up a hugely successful run in January, I wrote that the 2011 show was going to be a "can't miss" event. Like many who attended the last show in Santa Monica, California, I've been waiting to hear when and where the 2011 conference would be staged so I could lock up those dates on my calendar. The news came

today when DOMAINfest Global's organizers at Oversee.net 's Domain Sponsor unit announced  the event will return to the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica February 1-3, 2011

Just as L.A.'s beloved Lakers repeated as NBA champions last week, DOMAINfest Global has positioned itself for another big win by bringing their show back to this popular beachfront community on L.A.'s west side.

I was also glad to hear that the Fairmont will host the event again. It is a great venue that sits directly across the street from the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica's scenic beach.  As was the case last year,  the entire hotel property has been reserved exclusively for DOMAINfest Global attendees, Organizers said they do that to "create a relaxed, intimate environment for networking and personal meetings."

Just because the whole hotel has been reserved for the show doesn't mean you are going to get a room if you procrastinate. The hotel sold out quickly last year. As soon as I got the word on the 2011 dates today I booked my room at the Fairmont. DOMAINfest has arranged for discounted hotel room rates for attendees. The details on that are available here..

The DOMAINfest Global team started

 

working on the 2011 agenda almost as soon as the 2010 show ended, so they expect to be ready to publish the full 2011 schedule, including session topics and evening entertainment, on August 18, 2010.  Online registration will open on the same date with an Early Bird discounted rate of $995 available through September 30, 2010.  After that date, registration increases to $1,195.  Registration covers all meals, sessions, networking activities, exhibit hall entry and evening entertainment. 

There was also some news today from Rick Schwartz about the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Miami show that he and partner Howard Neu will be staging in Miami's South Beach October 17-20, 2010. Schwartz announced inspirational speaker and author Simon T. Bailey would be a keynote speaker at the show.

This will be the only T.R.A.F.F.I.C. that conference co-founders Schwartz and Neu will run this year so you can rest assured that it will be something special, putting this one in the can't miss category as well.
