DNSeattle Returning for Round 2! Next Month's 2015 Meetup Follows Sold Out Debut in 2014 

Seattle has long been a focal point of domain industry activity, so when DomainSherpa's Michael Cyger decided his hometown should have a high profile meetup for the area's many industry professionals, no one was surprised to see the debut event he organized (held atop the iconic Seattle Space Needle in January 2014) quickly sell out. 

Though he set a high bar with the first edition of DNSeattle, Cyger expects a new venue and a  change of season will make next month's encore even bigger and better than the inaugural event. DNSeattle 2015 moves from winter to spring with the next show slated for Thursday evening, May 28 (running from 6pm-9pm). 

The event also moves to an attractive new venue - Rightside headquarters in suburban Kirkland overlooking beautiful Lake Washington. Rightside, one of the top new gTLD registry operators, as well as the parent company of domain sales platform Namejet and leading registrars Enom and Name.com, will also be DNSeattle's lead sponsor. "I'm very grateful to Rightside's Taryn Naidu and Dwayne Walker for their support," Cyger said.

Cyger told us, "Attendees will likely come from all over the Pacific Northwest, just like last year: Seattle, Vancouver-BC, Portland, Montana, Idaho. But we're welcoming attendees from anywhere, like Bob and Trudie Olea who came up from San Diego for the 2014 event."

2015 attendees can look forward to socializing, networking, educational speakers, a .Ninja training camp and ping pong - as well as appetizers and a bar to keep you fueled up for all of those activities.

The cost to attend has to be one of the industry's best bargains - just $18.05 through May 20, 2015 ($25 after that, assuming any tickets are left) so you will want to register ASAP.  As was the case last year, all proceeds from the event will benefit the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle - a phenomenal research institute focused on finding a cure for cancer.
