It's January and You Know What That Means - Time to Get Ready for Another NamesCon! 

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and are excited to see how things will unfold for the domain business now that we've put 2020 behind us and have a new year with unlimited possibilities ahead of us now. In our industry, January has been synonymous with NamesCon ever since the popular conference series launched in 2014

Of course, with the world still in the grip of a global pandemic, things are different this January.  

We won't be traveling anywhere for the usual NamesCon Global event (currently planned for an as yet undetermined date and place next autumn) but we will still be getting together at NamesCon.Online 2021! Having already proven how effective the online format can be with an impressive inaugural event in September, the industry is gearing up of an even bigger virtual get together when the three-day show returns January 27 through January 29


Registration is open right now at what I think is an astonishingly low price - just $79 - that includes replays of all of the sessions that insure you won't miss a minute, even if you can't watch it all live as it happens. Much of the agenda has already been finalized, so you can get a good idea of the sessions NamesCon has in store for you and who will be speaking. I'll personally be playing a bigger role than ever by hosting a State of the Industry themed session every morning on the Keynote track. I'll sit down with Corporate Leaders on day one, some of the industry's best Domain Brokers on day two and successful Domain Investors on day three. Those sessions will follow the publication of our 17th annual State of the Industry Cover Story the week before NamesCon runs, giving me an opportunity to expand our printed commentary from experts the industry with the live interviews at NamesCon Online.



I'll be sharing a lot more advance information on the conference in this column over the next three weeks and I look forward to seeing you at the show - both in the live business sessions and at the  tables in the casual Networking Lounge that are also a big part of the online experience. It's going the perfect way to get the new year in the domain world off on the right foot!
