Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry.

Agenda Released for 2016 DomainX Conference in India - Frank Schilling & Bill Karamouzis to Deliver Keynotes 

India's 3rd annual DomainX conference will be held August 6-7 at Shangra-La's Eros Hotel in New Delhi, India. The event was launched to fuel growth in the domain business throughout India and toward that end it has been held in a different location each year, starting with Hyderabad in 2014 then Bangalore in 2015 and now the nation's capital in New Delhi.

With each outing, the goal of DomainX organizers Manmeet Pal-Singh Mahal and Gaurav Kohli is to have a bigger event than the last with more registrants, speakers and sponsors from around the world. With respect to putting industry leading experts on their stage, the 2016 agenda features a line up that any conference would be delighted to present. On the main business day Sunday, August 7, in the morning alone, attendees will see in succession, Chief Guest Samiran Gupta, the Head of India for ICANN, followed by two keynote addresses - one from legendary domain 

investor and Uniregistry Founder Frank Schilling and another from celebrated developer Bill Karamouzis (CEO at TeachMe.com).

The main business day at DomainX 2016 wil get off to a fast start with successive addresses from (left to right) Samiran Gupta (ICANN India), Frank Schilling (Uniregistry) and Bill Karamouzis (TeachMe.com CEO).

In yet another interesting talk before the 1pm Lunch Break Sunday, Sedo's Global CSO Dima Bietzke will have a presentation called Premium Domain Names: The hidden champions for your success. With ace moderator Braden Pollock from LegalBrandMarketing.com on hand to elicit the most valuable information from panelists possible, four more business sessions will follow lunch before the day and conference closes with a 5pm Awards Ceremony.

The afternoon Sunday will begin with Donuts Inc. Business Development Director Anand Vora answering the question Is India a Domain Investor's Market? Next up attendees who need answers to their legal questions will have an opportunity to Ask the Domain Name Legal Experts in a panel discussion that will feature Zak Muscovitch, Rodney D Ryder, Gurpreet Singh Monga & Ankur Raheja.

Another highly anticipated address is scheduled for 3:15 pm when Jon Yau will talk about the Evolution of StockPhoto.com - a domain he bought for $250,000 and built into a highly successful ecommerce business. The show's final business session also looks like a winner with a panel discussion about domain values called Will This Sell? Jon Yau, Bill Karamouzis, Jordi G Cros, AbdulBasit Makrani, Paul Singh and Gaurav Kohli will all weigh in on how to improve your prospects for making end user sales.

Anand Vora (Donuts Inc.) will kick off the DomainX afternoon sessions July 7. 

While that sums up the Sunday schedule you may be saying, "wait a minute - didn't you forget something - what about opening day - Saturday, July 6!?"  There will be plenty going on that day too but it will be devoted entirely to what just about every conference goer worldwide says is the most important reason they go to shows - the opportunity for face to face networking and relationship building. DomainX is going to facilitate that in a spectacular way by taking guests on a daytrip to the world famous Taj Mahal in Agra on Saturday.

Where else but DomainX can you do some casual networking while visiting one of 
the world's most famous icons - the Taj Mahal?

After everyone is back from the Taj Mahal - a full evening of networking will still be ahead of them, starting with tea, coffee & cookies at 5:30pm. Saturday evening will also include a whisky tasting session and dinner (at 9:30pm) with festivities continuing until around midnight. 

DomainX is set up in a way that allows you to customize your conference experience by buying tickets only to the events you want to attend.  Just want to go to Saturday night networking? There's a ticket for that. Just Sunday's business sessions? There's one for that too, as well as other individual events and reduced price tickets that combine events. 

If you are a blogger (or want to be one), you should also know that there will be a separate conference - the first ever BlogX event - at the same hotel Friday, July 5 (the day before DomainX starts). Domains and blogs have a lot in common (if you want to have a blog you would be wise to build it on your own domain rather than a platform you have no control over), so you might want to make a 3-day weekend of it and hit both shows.

In addition to drawing in Indian and international Internet entrepreneurs with these unique networking opportunities, DomainX and BlogX are also attracting an impressive array of corporate sponsors who want to reach them (and will have representatives there to do so), including Sedo, Donuts Inc., OpenSRS, MicroHost, Mapta.gs, ThemeMarket, GetVOIP, Airfare.in and the Domain Name Owners Association of India.

Whether you come to New Delhi for a day, two, three (or even more, as we will do so we can explore the city), co-organizers Manmeet Pal Singh Mahal and Gaurav Kohli are looking forward to welcoming you to DomainX 2016 and giving you an inside look at the rapidly growing Indian and global domain name industry.
