Traditional Sedo/InterNetX Pre-Show Party Got NamesCon Global Week Off to an Early Start Last Night in Austin

The 2023 NamesCom Global conference opens today (May 31) at the downtown Omni Hotel in Austin, Texas, but the busy week got off to an early start last night when Sedo and InterNetX welcomed guests to their traditional pre-show party. With IT.com joining Sedo and InterNetX as sponsors this year, the event was held at Marriott's indoor-outdoor AC Bar just north of the Omni. It was a perfect venue for meeting new friends, getting back together with old one and enjoying the food, drinks and atmosphere is the middle of the Lone Star State's capital city.

Now its on to four days of non-stop activity at NamesCon (the show runs through Saturday, June 3). Not sure when we will be back up for air to post again but keep an eye on this column for updates. We will be spending most of our time at the various sessions and events gathering information and photos for our complete show review that will come out early next week.
