With Over 120 Speakers and 100+ Sessions the Upcoming Edition of NamesCon Online is a BIG Deal With a Small Price Tag

Due to the global pandemic the domain industry has not been able to come together in person at a major conference since the NamesCon Global event in Austin, Texas in January 2020. Though Covid-19 is still preventing us from getting together face to face in significant numbers, we are fortunate that NamesCon has managed to create and produce an online version of the big show that has  proven to be the best possible solution to current conference hurdles. 

They did it for the first time in  September 2020, then repeated that success with another widely praised event in January 2021. Now are set to do it yet again when the 3rd edition of NamesCon Online runs Wednesday through Friday, September 22-24, 2021. 

The scale of what will be going on over those three days is beyond the scope of a single article like this, so let me sum it up this way. NamesCon Online will bring together more than 1,500 registrants from over 60 countries around the world. They will hear from more than 120 expert speakers who will appear in over 100 sessions that will be spread across four stages, as well as a separate daily MasterClass being provided by ParkLogic.com Founder Michael Gilmour. You can see the entire agenda here. You can also see who the individual speakers will be on the Home Page at NamesCon.online.

The remarkable thing about this is that the cost for all of that value comes to a grand total of $99 for the three-day event pass that you can get here

Soeren Von Varchmin

It all gets started at 11am US Eastern Time on Wednesday, September 22 when moderator Soeren Von Varchmin, the Chairman of the NamesCon Advisory Board, will welcome everyone to the party. The first business sessions will begin a few minutes later on Stages 1 and 2, followed by  a beehive of activity on the Handshake Stage and more coming from the Europe Stage that opens on Thursday. As we have previously reported, there will also be three separate domain auctions during the conference.

 As always, I will be covering the conference from start to finish with daily photos and highlights in this column. I will also be hosting two sessions on the closing day, Friday (September 24) including a Fireside Chat with the Michael Castello and David Castello that kicks that day off and a panel discussion about improving perception of the domain industry that will be the conference's final session on Stage 1. I look forward to seeing all of you (virtually) there!
