More Details About the Inaugural Domainers Meet Conference Scheduled for Dubai in April 2016 

Yesterday I told you a new domain conference - Domainers Meet - was being planned for Dubai in April - the first ever in the GCC  region (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman). I didn't have much information beyond the dates - April 23-24, 2016 but have since gotten more details from the organizers - known collectively as the World Domain Owners Assocation

For starters, the venue has now been identified. The show will be held at the highly rated Hotel Radisson Blu in Dubai. The organizers are expecting approximately 250 attendees at their debut show, the aim of which is to "wake up the GCC market to opportunities in the domain business." The background information I received said, "We believe Dubai, being the business hub of the Middle East and the city  

that will host World Expo2020, it is the right place to begin. At  Domainers Meet we look forward to giving the audience content rich speeches that are simple enough for laymen to easily understand." 

Toward that end, they identified six topics to be addressed by featured speakers (some already selected with the full list to be announced soon), as well as a major panel discussion. Those are:

  • Domain Names Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow 

  • Domain Names Vs. Virtual Property

  • eBrand Development - Premium Super Power Brand 

  • Domain Name After Market Sales - How to mqke money, domain name valuation and leasing

  • Scope of eBusiness in GCC, Scope of eBusiness Management Institutions, Future Market

  • Security of Sites, Web Auditing and Intellectual Property Right 

  • Panel Discussion - Legality of Domain Names, Issues & Solutions.

We will continue to pass along  information on the agenda, speakers, registration and room fees as it becomes available.
