Live Domain Auction Pioneer T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Keeps the Tradition Alive With Upcoming May 30 Sale in Las Vegas - Current Catalog Was Released Today 

Live domain auctions have been a fixture at  T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conferences ever since the pioneering event staged the first one ever at its second Florida show back in October 2005. That inaugural auction yielded impressive results for a debut event too with Consulting.com going for $180,000 and a three-name package that included Bachelor.com, Bachelor.net and Bachelor.org selling for $125,000

Another live auction will be an integral part of the 24th conference in the popular T.R.A.F.F.I.C. series that will run May 29 to June 1, 2013 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Auction day will be Thursday, May 30 with the sale scheduled from 2pm-4pm (local time). 

Today, conference show co-founder Rick Schwartz released the current list of domains that are scheduled to go on the block (there will likely be several additions between now auction day - you can see the most current full list by checking the auction section of the Schedule page at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. website).

(October 2012 in 
Ft. Lauderdale Beach, Florida).

The current auction list includes 3DMovie.com, AFQ.com, Bouquet.com, LawnMowing.com and Thriller.com to name just a few. To spice things up, the mix also includes several non .com domains including JAX.net, ConsolidateDebt.org, 777.me, Artist.us (with Artists.us), Silly.tv and Time.travel.

Schwartz said that more than 50% of the list has NO RESERVE and will sell to the highest bidder. He added that you can bid in person, by text, by email or by phone.
