THE Domain Conference Lands Morgan Linton as Keynote Speaker - Spotlight to Shine on John Ferber and Braden Pollock As Well 

With the inaugural edition of THE Domain Conference coming up this summer, key positions on the agenda are rapidly being filled. We've learned that veteran domain investor, developer and blogger Morgan Linton will deliver the keynote speech at the event that will run September 26-29, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Most recently Morgan and his wife, the equally talented Daina Linton, has been busy growing their award-winning startup, FashionMetric.com, into a disruptive force in the fashion industry. Their new company, based in Austin, Texas and backed by billionaire entrepreneur (and Shark Tank TV Star) Mark Cuban, is an SaaS solution for apparel retailers and brands to gather intelligence about their customers and personalize the online apparel shopping experience.

From the first time I met Morgan in person (at the 2010 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Vancouver

We also learned that THE Domain Conference has completed an impressive trifecta by adding Bidtellect.com (and DomainHoldings.com) Co-Founder John Ferber and multi-talented entrepreneur Braden Pollock (LegalBrandMarketing.com) to the all-star cast that will take the stage during the show (the first event being produced by Howard, Barbara and Ray Dillman Neu since their long run with the pioneering T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference that ended with the 10th anniversary show last fall, after which partner Rick Schwartz (and the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. brand) went into retirement).

John Ferber has had a remarkable business career that includes selling his first major company, Advertising.com, to America Online for nearly $500 million! We were fortunate to get him into our field after that when he teamed up with industry veteran Chad Folkening to co-found DomainHoldings.com, then Bidtellect.com. The latter company is the first open, multi-format, multi-device Native Marketing Platform connecting advertisers and publishers to deliver optimized and insightful native advertising at scale.

Braden Pollock is a veteran domain investor/developer with a long track record of  business success. While he has been a speaker at many domain conferences (including T.R.A.F.F.I.C., NamesCon, DOMAINfest and Domaining Europe) he has become especially renowned for his stage personality and insightful interviewing skills that have made him the most in-demand moderator in the industry. Braden will make sure you leave his sessions with useful, actionable (and entertaining) information.  

An early bird admission rate of  $499 is still available for THE Domain Conference, but it will be going up to $699 on June 15th, so now is the time to take advantage of the lower 

pricing.  You can also reserve your room at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 now with rates starting at just $109 a night with  no resort fee and free Internet.
