The DOMAINfest Caravan Adds A Major New Stop - First DOMAINfest Asia Slated for Macau Sept. 4-7

A lot of people wondered what NamesCon would do with the DOMAINfest brand when they bought the rights to that conference from Oversee.net at the end of last year. Since then some successful one day DOMAINfest events have been staged in conjunction with other meetings (with another one set to run Sept. 27 alongside THE Domain Conference in Florida).

Now, DOMAINfest is spreading its wings even further with a big four-day event - the first DOMAINfest Asia - that will run September 4-7, 2015 in Macau, China

DOMAINfest co-founder Jothan Frakes said, “Many are looking to Asia as a market of robust growth and innovation. Macau is the perfect Asian location for the DOMAINfest caravan. Providing a great experience for regional industry players is central to the DOMAINfest mission, and Macau is easy to 

access for our many friends in the China region, the Indian subcontinent, Japan, Korea, and south-east Asia."

The conference will be jointly organized by DOMAINfest,  DotAsia Organisation (the operator of the .ASIA registry) and China-specialist strategic communications agency Allegravita and it will be supported by the Internet Society of China. DOMAINfest.Asia 2015 is designed to serve as a meeting place for China’s and Asia’s domain name industry to network with sector leaders from around the world. The show will feature the parallel discussion tracks made popular by NamesCon on diverse domain name industry subjects topical to Asian and Chinese markets.

DotAsia Organisation CEO Edmon Chung said, “We’re very excited to host the international domain community in Macau. I know DOMAINfest.Asia 2015 will help drive growth in domain market expansion and awareness in China and Asia.” Allegravita CEO Simon Cousins added, “China’s central importance to the global domain name business is undisputed, and we couldn’t be prouder to be bringing the world to meet China at DOMAINfest.Asia in Macau.”  

A full conference schedule and sponsor details will be announced in coming weeks, and full event information will be available online soon at http://domainfest.asia.
