Cloudfest Announces Return to USA - Event Will Run Concurrently With NamesCon Global in Austin Next Spring 

The cloud computing and domain hosting industry's Cloudfest conference, best known for its huge annual event at Europa-Park in Germany, is returning to the United States after a 7-year absence. Cloudfest USA 2023 will run concurrently with the NamesCon Global conference at the Omni Hotel in Austin, Texas May 31-June 3, 2023

Anyone who has a ticket to NamesCon will be able to attend any Cloudfest USA session and vice versa at no extra charge. The symbiotic relationship between the two shows is a 

natural as they are owned by  the same parent company. Registration for Cloudfest USA opened today with 65% off Early Bird tickets available until January 6, 2023.

Cloudfest made a previous foray into the American market with Stateside conferences in 2015 and 2016 when the event was known as World Hosting Days (WHD). We covered the inaugural WHD USA event at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort in western Pennsylvania in May 2015. Day 1 of that coverage is here and closing day 2 is here. WHD USA returned in 2016 with another May show that was held in Phoenix, Arizona

With the domain and hosting businesses so closely connected, it makes a lot of sense to bring Cloudfest USA back and run it in tandem with NamesConGlobal, a move that will made both events stronger. The combination will be especially appealing to managed service providers (MSPs), cloud service providers (CSPs), registrars and website developers that usually include both domain registration and hosting service in their offerings. Bringing more people from those sectors together in Austin should also give domain sales a boost, including those offered in the NamesCon Global auction.
