DomainX in Bangalore, India Will Be a Feast for the Eyes as Well as a Fest for Investors

We arrived in India early this morning, a couple of days ahead of the 2nd annual DomainX conference, so we could explore Bangalore and the historic Taj West End Hotel where the show will be held Friday and Saturday (August 7 & 8). Those coming in for the event at the 

125-year-old venue are in for a treat - both on the domain front and in the eye candy arena. It is hard to imagine a prettier place to gather for any occasion. 

Above: My wife, Diana and I, exploring some of the 20 acres of lush tropical foliage that surrounds the five-star Taj West End Hotel in Bangalore, India where the DomainX conference will be held Friday & Saturday (August 7 & 8).

Below: Rooms at the Taj are located in a collection of Victorian era buildings connected by scenic walkways that meander through the spectacular property. 

Above: While sitting on the back lawn at the Taj West End, Diana is visited by some friendly fowl representing a turkey-related species that we were told lives only in southern India.

Below: The Taj takes full advantage of their gorgeous scenery with a variety of outdoor dining options including these tables at the Masala Klub.

where the DomainX conference will be held.  

Below: DomainX team members (left to right): Hardik Modi, Founder & CEO Manmeet Pal Singh, Dhairya Cholera, DomainX Co-Organizer Gaurav Kholi and Preetham Shetty in the conference hall planning the stage and seating layout for this weekend's sold out show. 

Tomorrow we plan to get out and see some of the surrounding city and it looks like we have lined up a great tour guide in Deepak Daftari who will be the first keynote speaker at DomainX Saturday. That will be a lot of fun and I expect to have some photos and highlights from the day for you in this column Thursday. Then we all get down to business when the show opens at 12 Noon Friday (local time in Bangalore - that is 9.5 hours later that U.S. Eastern time, so when the conference starts it will be 2:30 in the morning back home in Florida).
