With NamesCon Global in Town Austin Will Be the Domain Capital of the World This Week

It's Showtime - and we're off to Austin, Texas to participate in and cover the 2024 NamesCon Global conference that will run Wednesday thorough Saturday (June 5-8) at the downtown Omni Hotel (also the site for last year's big show). Conference organizers have assembled an outstanding agenda for this year's event that will attract domain professionals from around the world. 

As I previously noted, opening day Wednesday will be an especially exciting one for me as I will be doing three separate interviews that will feature a trio of the most successful domain brokers in industry history. First up will be Hilco Digital's Andrew Miller (the subject of our current Cover Story), then Evergreen.com's fascinating Founder Jen Sale in back to back morning sessions that would be a great way to start anyone's day (especially since Jen is going to

share some tips on how to have not just a great day - but a better life)! After the lunch break, I'm looking forward to sitting down again with MediaOptions Founder Andrew Rosener. The last time we had a long talk it was a private conversation that went on for three hours and led to our widely read May 2023 Cover Story

In between those sessions and throughout the remainder of the week I'll be constantly on the move gathering as many photos and as much information as possible from all of the other business sessions and social events, so I can produce a comprehensive show review for you that we expect to publish early next week. Since activity at NamesCon Global runs day and night, I don't expect to be posting here while the conference is underway. Speakers and participants are traveling long distances at considerable expense to make NamesCon the invaluable event that it is, so I want to stay in the middle of the action to make sure we can include as much of it as possible in our final account of the industry's biggest annual event.
