Date and Location Set for DNSeattle 2017 - Amazon to Sponsor and Host 4th Annual Event

The popular DNSeattle domain industry meetup will be returning for a 4th annual event on Thursday, May 25, 2017. The soiree will run from 6-9pm at a popular Amazon meeting space affectionately know as "The Living Room" (at 426 Terry Avenue North in Seattle) with post-event socializing then continuing until midnight at a local bar.

DNSeattle Founder Michael Cyger kicked off the series with a debut event held at the top of Seattle's Space Needle in 2014. In 2015 Rightside hosted the meetup at their suburban headquarters in Kirkland, then last year GoDaddy welcomed attendees to their offices overlooking Lake Washington.

DNSeattle activities include networking, speaker/panel discussions and socializing while enjoying appetizers and a bar. Attendees typically come from all over the Pacific Northwest. Last year Seattle, Vancouver-BC, Portland, Montana, Idaho were all represented at the event but attendees from anywhere are welcome. In 2016, Mark Levine traveled from Minneapolis and Joe Styler came from Arizona. In 2015, Braden Pollock and Bob Olea came up from Southern California.

For this year's show Amazon, in addition to providing the meeting space, is the lead sponsor of DNSeattle and Cyger expressed his gratitude to Amazon's Stacey King for her generous support of the upcoming event. GoDaddy, Donuts, Rightside (all Seattle locally-based companies), as well as Payoneer Escrow and Above.com, have joined as supporting sponsors.

As in the past, all proceeds from DNSeattle will benefit the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle - a phenomenal research institute focused on finding a cure for cancer.  

Michael Cyger told us, "I can't wait for the 4th annual DNSeattle event on May 25th. Every year gets bigger, better, more social and more educational. Big news coming about our educational content, and we'll have plenty of giveaways as usual. Get your tickets ($24 each) soon, because we'll likely sell out again this year and only 100 tickets are available for sale."

Cyger added, "Our first two attendees somehow found that we'd turned on ticketing and bought their tickets - without us even announcing anything! We're excited to have our Hexonet neighbors from the North, Patrick McCleery and Robert Birkner, come down from Canada for the event. Hexonet has joined us for every event we've held!"

For attendees coming from out of town that want to spend the night, Cyger also noted that DNSeattle is working on securing accommodations with an announcement on that expected within the next few weeks.
