NamesCon Global 2024 Ready to Roll with World Class Speakers and Ambitious Agenda for 4-Day Event in Austin

It's almost here! The 2024 edition of NamesCon Global, the domain industry's biggest event for investors, developers and service providers will get underway Wednesday, June 5 at the Downtown Omni Hotel in Austin, Texas, the historic capital of the Lone Star State. It will continue there through Saturday, June 8 when the shows closes with its traditional Fun Day.

You may recall that last year, for the first time, NamesCon Global ran concurrently in the same Austin venue with Cloudfest USA, America's premier event for the Internet infrastructure industry. That will be the case again this year and anyone who buys a ticket to one of the events can also attend any sessions they wish in the other. That productive pairing was possible because WHD Events GmbH owns both events (they also produce the world's biggest infrastructure conference, the main Cloudfest conference that attracts thousands of attendees to Rust, Germany in March of every year). 

I've always looked forward to NamesCon Global but never more so than this year because, on opening day, I will have three separate face to face fireside chats onstage in the Keynote Hall with groundbreaking domain brokerage and consulting legends Andrew Miller (Managing Director, Hilco Digital Assets), Jen Sale (CEO, Evergreen.com) and Andrew Rosener (CEO, MediaOptions.com). If you're going to NamesCon and hear these three speak, you're going to go home with a vastly better understanding of what it takes to succeed in this business and life beyond it (a topic that Jen has some especially illuminating advice about).

Our sessions are set to run at these times on Wednesday, June 5:

10:25am - Andrew Miller's High-Stakes Deals: How Does He Do It? Andrew Miller of Hilco Digital Assets has overseen some of the most significant, high-profile deals in domaining. His blockbuster transactions include Chat.com, Gold.com, Home.com and Universal.com - and the companies he has founded include CreditCards.com and InsuranceQuotes.com. Andrew will candidly discuss what it takes to set up and close high-stakes deals. Andrew, by the way, also happens to the the subject of DNJournal's current Cover Story.

11:15am - WWW: Whois, Wellbeing and Wanderlust – Domain and Life Learnings with Jen Sale. The quickest way from Point A to Point B is a straight line, but where’s the fun in that?  Jen Sale will tell you how adding a sense of adventure to not only your domaining career but your whole life can lead to greater prosperity—and greater wellbeing. If you want to take advantage of what an online career can offer- on your terms - you'll want to hear what Jen has to say!

2:40pm - The Climb To The Top: A Conversation with Andrew Rosener. Andrew Rosener has been the force  behind some of the biggest deals in domain history – including selling Prime.com to Amazon, Zoom.com to Zoom, and X.com to Elon Musk. Named Escrow.com Broker of the Year for six consecutive years and featured on renowned life-hacker Tim Ferriss’s podcast, Drew has reinvented domain valuation methodology, investing strategy, and figuring out what’s about to rock the digital world next so join us for a peek under the hood of his massively-successful domain industry machine - and, if you missed it, be sure to check out our May 2023 Cover Story about Andrew - one of the most widely read articles we have ever published.

These three sessions are just part of an extraordinary agenda NamesCon Global has put together this year. Take a look at it and the full list of exceptional speakers and, if you haven't gotten a ticket already, there's a pretty good chance you will want to get one now. I hope to see you in Austin but for those who can't be there, we wil, as always, be putting a complete show recap together for you as soon as we get back home from what is shaping up to be a landmark event.
