ICA Announces September In-Person Meetup in Las Vegas to Celebrate 15th Anniversary

With things finally beginning to open up in the U.S. following a lockdown of over a year due to Covid 19, it looks like industry participants will be meeting face to face again before this year is out. The Internet Commerce Association (ICA), the non-profit organization devoted to protecting  domain registrant's rights, has become the first to take a major step in that direction.

In a letter sent to ICA members today, the association announced it will celebrate its 15th Anniversary with a Meetup in Las Vegas September 19-20, 2021 at a venue still to be determined. Las Vegas was chosen by a majority of members who picked their favorite from a short list of potential cities (the others were Chicago, the Los Angeles area, Miami and Nashville).

Kamila Sekiewicz
ICA Executive Director

The letter to members from ICA Executive Director Kamila Sekiewicz noted, "With so many meetings held in Las Vegas in the past, it'll be fun to reminisce about them as we create new memories. We are looking forward to meeting in person, and we're confident things in the U.S. will continue to improve. Still, we will monitor the situation to ensure we can provide a safe setting for our meeting and abide by CDC guidelines."

Kamila added, "We envision a fun event combining some member meetings and social activities. We will be announcing more details as the plans progress. There will be no admission costs; meals and drinks will be covered by members. We will be seeking sponsors and offering sponsorship opportunities to host cocktail hours, breakfasts, and dinners. We welcome your feedback and look forward to seeing many of you in Vegas this fall!"

If you are not already an ICA member, you are invited to join here. Various membership levels make it affordable for all industry participants to support the organization and its efforts on behalf of domain owners.
