First Name Summit in New York City Now Just a Month Away - Here's the Latest on What's Coming to the Big Apple 

In April I told you about a new digital branding conference (incorporating domains and development related disciplines like SEO, social media and marketing) that is coming to New York City this summer. With the big event at the Hilton Midtown Manhattan, Name Summit, now just a month away a lot of the agenda details that weren't available in my original report have since been filled in. 

One of the biggest developments is veteran domain broker Andrew Rosener from MediaOptions.com  

coming on board as a Co-Producer, joining conference founders Steven Kaziyev (New York Media) and Jason Schaeffer (ESQwire.com) in that role while Jodi Chamberlain (32Events.com) serves as Conference Director.

Regarding the addition of Rosener to the NameSummit production team, Ms. Chamberlian said, "Andrew's years of industry experience, knowledge and professionalism are top notch. He is a close colleague to both Jason and Steve which has made this trio an amazing one to work with. This new partnership brings more value to the event as Drew has a strong eye for 'smart' business and his desire to not only support the conference but join in as a partner speaks volume to the direction it has taken."

Regarding the show agenda, Jodi added, "We are covering everything including Influencer  and Social Branding, SEO, Adwords and even a panel on how Blockchain is being used to change paid advertising and search.  Participants will also get start up and business coaching from FOWNDERS.com and a great personal business coach, Stacee Mandeville."

"Our speakers list is 99.9% completed. To give you just a few examples, we will have serial

entrepreneur, angel investor and philanthropist Gerard Adams, widely known as the "Millennial Mentor," on stage with Greg Yuna (known as "Mr Flawless") covering personal branding, and Gerard will also speak about Fownders, his new organization that helps startups and young entrepreneurs receive the knowledge, tools and support they need to become successful. Fownders will also have a booth in the Networking Lounge along with providing mentorship sessions from their team at no charge."

Sedo CEO Tobias Flaitz will be featured 
in a Fireside Chat at NameSummit

"The first day of the conference will be geared towards Digital Branding topics while day two with be more domain centric and will also include a legal panel to discuss brand and business protection. One of the first sessions on opening day will feature SEMPO's Marc Engelsman & Mike Grehan providing advice on an Integrated Marketing Mix," Ms. Chamberlain continued.

"Day two will begin with a Fireside Chat with Sedo CEO Tobias Flaitz who is coming over from the company's headquarters in Cologne, Germany, and a special lunch presentation from  Neustar evangelist and Head of Professional Services Tony Kirsch. Day two will be capped with an exclusive live auction that will include a few no reserve .NYC domain names as well as a handful of special .com domains (with reserves), including WallStreet.com."

"The full agenda is now online here. In addition to learning from so many industry experts there will, or course, also be ample opportunities to network with other attendees."

Jodi concluded, "We are also thrilled with the sponsor support we are getting from so many leading companies and organizations including Verisign, The DNA, SEMPO, Sedo, Fownders and Nominet. One more thing - to celebrate the 4th of July we are offering everyone $100 off the current ticket price, dropping the cost from $299 to judt $199!. Here is a link to the registration page where the discounted price has already gone live. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in the Big Apple!"
