NamesCon Announces 3 Shows for 2021 - Face to Face Meetings to Resume After Online Event In January

We still don't know when the current Covid 19 pandemic will end, but NamesCon organizers, who produce the domain industry's biggest conferences, expect to start welcoming attendees in person again by July. After staging a very well-received three-day virtual conference - the first NamesCon Online - last month, NamesCon has decided to move forward with three events next year - each with a different format. 

The schedule kicks off January 27-29 when NamesCon Online returns for another trip around the virtual track. Then, assuming that Covid-19 will finally be under control

by next summer, attendees will finally be able to meet face to face for the first time since NamesCon Global 2020 last January when NamesCon Europe 2021 re-opens the real world doors July 15-17 in Budapest.

2021's biggest event, NamesCon Global, was originally planned to be a live conference in Austin, Texas in January but Covid squashed that possibility. So, organizers have decided to move the Global conference to Autumn 2021 with a location and exact dates still to be determined. That show is being planned as a hybrid event, meaning the show will be open to both attendees on site and those who want to participate online from their own homes or offices. Call it the best of both worlds

In the meantime, NamesCon Online has proven to be an invaluable substitute and, having done so in September, I would expect to see their registration numbers take a big jump in January. Look for registration to open before the end of October. 

As for NamesCon Europe 2021, many of you will recall that Budapest was supposed to host a 2020 Europe show in August but it had to be cancelled because of Covid. Now, that historic and stunning city will get a another opportunity wow domain investors from around the world next summer. 

Whether it is online or in person, we look forward to see as many of you as possible at NamesCon's 2021 events!
