THE Domain Conference is Drawing Near - Here's the Latest on What Will be Happening at the Big Event in Fort Lauderdale

The 2016 edition of THE Domain Conference (TDC) is coming up fast now, The big show at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that debuted last year at the same waterfront venue, is barely 3 weeks away. It will start with two days of Cabana Networking at a private pool reserved for attendees Saturday & Sunday, September 10 & 11, 2016

TDC Co-Founder Barbara Neu (who was just profiled in our latest Cover Story that will tell you a lot about the "matchmaker made in heaven" that you never knew) will likely be one of the first people you will see at the cabanas. Barbara told us, "The Cabana Networking is a success because there is no schedule. You are free to come and go any time you want. We create a gathering point for attendees to meet up with old acquaintances and make new ones - and if there is anyone that you want to meet, just ask me and I will personally make sure you get introduced!"

As I told you last month, a new event, Startup Saturday, will be going on inside simultaneously on September 10. TDC  is bringing in expert speakers Morgan Linton (FashionMetric.com) and Brett Napoli (AmbitionInsight.com) to lead that day for potential startup and small business owners who seek advice that will help them succeed. Most of the attendees will come from the

South Florida business community but TDC guests can sit in on any or all sessions as the conference ticket also covers Startup Saturday. 

The conference's Official Welcome Party will cap off the busy opening weekend Sunday night (September 11) in the revolving room atop the Hyatt Pier 66 (Howard, Barbara & Ray are standing inside that room in the photo above and you get a nice view of the spectacular surrounding area in the shot below). Barbara said, "An added attraction this year will be the Internet Commerce Association celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a Cocktail Party at our Conference. Igloo.com will also host the traditional Gregg McNair Suite Party where everyone is welcome, giving them an opportunity to relax and network that has always been a highlight of our conferences."

will hold its Welcome Party to kick off the 2016 show 
Sunday night (Sept. 11).

Two full business days will follow Monday & Tuesday (September 12 & 13). Barbara noted, "We serve lunch both of those days so everyone can break bread together and not have to leave. It gives everyone a chance to socialize and sit together and visit with the exhibitors. Also, Bill McClure from Coffee.Club will generously provide his delicious coffee during the day for everyone to enjoy and keep them awake after staying up late hours!"

Barbara added, "We have two great Keynote Speakers - CEO Tobias Flaitz from Sedo.com and VP Lori Anne Wardi from Neustar. We also have a number of speakers who have never spoken to domain audiences before including Stacey King from Amazon, Gerald Levine (who wrote the “bible” of UDRP cases), Jebidiah Burnett (Senior Domain Consultant at Rightside, David Warmuz (President at Trellian.com), Jennifer Gore from ICANN and Dante DeAngelis covering Digital Assets. The annual Domain Industry Awards will also be handed out Tuesday. You can check out the full schedule here)."

THE Domain Conference will close with its traditional Farewell Breakfast Wednesday morning, September 14 (back in the popular rooftop room!), the perfect way to wrap up what promises to be another productive and memorable week.

Registration for THE Domain Conference is still open. You can also book your hotel room at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 at a show rate of $109 a night for pool view rooms or $129 for tower view rooms (those rates include free internet and no resort fee). We look forward to seeing many of you there!
