Photos & Highlights from Domainers Meet - The Middle East's 1st Major Domain Conference that Concluded Sunday in Dubai

Domainers Meet, the first domain name industry conference ever held in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council, an alliance of Middle Eastern nations Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman) concluded Sunday (April 24, 2016) at the Hotel Radisson Blu in Dubai

Conference organizers brought in an impressive array of industry speakers from around he world for the inaugural two-day event in the booming UAE metropolis that has become an important global business center.

Gilmour posted a very positive review of Domainers Meet on his blog today, noting "Congratulations are in order to all of the organisers of Domainers Meet in Dubai. I know that a lot of business will be conducted as a result and there are plans in place already to run the conference again next year."

Gilmour added, "Many domain luminaries shared their experience including but not limited to Braden Pollock (Legal Brand Marketing), Tessa Holcomb (Igloo), Rob Monster (Epik), Rolf Larsen (.GLOBAL), Francesco Cetraro (.CLOUD), Daliah Saper (Attorney) plus a lot of others.  A real highlight for me was hearing from Munir Badr who spoke on the state of the domain/internet industry in the UAE."

The landmark event drew mainstream media coverage that will also help boost awareness of the importance of domain names in the region's business community. Holcomb, Saper and fellow Domainers Meet speaker Adam Wagner (Founder & CEO, GCCInternet.com) were all featured in a Kahleej Times article about the conference. Wagner told the Times, "GCC states offer massive opportunities for the domain name industry and they have proved to be an effective way of marketing communication for both online and offline. The implementation of professionally-selected domain names offer competitive advantage through instant recognition and credibility to the business."
