New BlogX Conference to Run Just Ahead of DomainX in New Delhi This Summer - Elsewhere China's WDS Show Gets Underway With Big Crowd in Hangzhou 

DomainX Events Founder Manmeet Pal Singh has just announced a new conference for bloggers - BlogX - that will make its debut on August 5, 2016 at the Shangri-Las's New Eros Hotel in New Delhi, India. Though BlogX will be a stand alone event, it will run the day before the 3rd annual DomainX conference gets underway at the same venue where it will run August 6-7. After covering and speaking at the 2015 DomainX conference in Bangalore I am looking forward to going back to India to participate in both BlogX and DomainX this summer.

Singh had previously announced a Taj Mahal trip for DomainX attendees would be held on August 5, but the Taj trip has now been moved to Saturday, August 6, making it the first thing on the show's opening day agenda. That will  provide a world class setting for casual networking that would be hard for any conference to match.

As for BlogX, being presented in associating with MicroHost.com,  that will be an event where bloggers and content managers can learn from and network with industry leaders in the blogging community. The speakers already announced include Kulwant Nagi (BloggingCage.com), Jitendra Vaswani (BloggersIdeas.com), Preet Sandhu (BuyBeforeReviews.com) and Ron Jackson (DNJourna.l.com). You can register for BLOGX here.

While BlogX and DomainX are still a couple of months away, the first of two major domain conferences in China in as many months, the Global Domain Industry Summit is now underway in Hangzhou. The show there will run through Monday, June 6 and will be followed by the World Domain Conference in Wuzhen July 6-9, 2016

As everyone in the industry must be aware of by now, interest in domains has exploded in China. Several industry veterans from the U.S. are at the Hangzhou show to get a better look at what is going on and they are marveling at the turnout. Consultant Pinky Brand, who posted the photo 

of opening day ceremonies in Hangzhou below, estimated 1,000 people are on hand for the event at the Relax Hotel

Back here in the U.S. I will be away on a one-week vacation June 6-13 so will not be online a lot during that period. Depending on time available (and how closely Diana is watching me!) I may put up a post somewhere along the way - if not I will look forward to seeing you back here on Tuesday, June 14.
