Momentum for Return to In-Person Domain Events Continues to Build With New Show in London This Summer

After more than two years without major in-person domain conferences due to the global pandemic, 2022 continues to bring better news on that front. We've already seen some real world regional domain shows this spring,  as well as the global Cloudfest event in Germany for the hosting industry. The first NamesCon Global event with a live audience since January 2020 is coming up this summer (starting August 31 in Austin, Texas) and now we have word of a new meetup coming to London, England August 23 & 24.

The London Domain Name Summit (LDNS) will be held at the award winning Yum Sa restaurant (rated 5 stars by Trip Advisor who also ranks them in the top 40 among over 17,000 London restaurants). In addition to the restaurant, Yum Sa has indoor and outdoor space to accommodate  business meetings like LDNS, an art gallery and a private meditation room (that might come in handy if you need to think especially hard about closing a business deal)! 

The LDNS website describes the event as an opportunity to connect in person and share ideas with domain name buyers, sellers, investors, developers, lawyers, registrars, hosting providers and more from all over the UK, Europe around the world. Exhibit space has also been set aside for a dozen service providers (information on sponsorship packages is available on the show's website). 

The Presenting Sponsor for the London Domain Summit 2022 will be IT.com, the domain registration provider that offers names in a new, third level zone - making names like build.it.com, buy.it .com and sell.it.com possible to own. 

Ever since acquiring the IT.com domain to be the foundation for their business in 2021 (in a reported $3.8 million deal), the new IT.com team has been  increasing its presence in the industry and has become a fixture at key conferences around the world.

Registration for the London Domain Name Summit is already open through Eventbrite. In an interesting twist,  organizers are currently providing 10 free tickets every day in the run up to the show. If you plan to go it would probably be a good idea to get them now, as the free offer could be rescinded when available space gets closer to venue's limit.
