Digital Creators and Investors Will Be Connecting in Iceland at the First Digital Asset Congress in September

While domain names were the original digital asset, several others have earned a sizeable following in recent years. Creators who utilize both new and long established digital platforms, along with those who invest in them, will have an all encompassing new conference of their own to attend in September. That is the first Digital Asset Congress (DAC) that will run Sept. 23-25, 2024 at the Hilton Nordic Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The event will connect creative minds with seasoned investors and business leaders, while providing a broad overview of how to transform creative ventures into lucrative digital assets. The goal is to help attendees capitalize on the many opportunities within digital content, domain names and web infrastructures. 

Jason Nickerson
Digital Asset Congress Founder

The DAC is the brainchild of digital industry veteran Jason Nickerson, who has played key roles in establishing and promoting some of the top conferences in multiple digital fields over the years. We first met Jason when he helped Jothan Frakes and Ray Neu put together the MERGE! domain conferences in Orlando in 2017 and 2018 and we've crossed paths many times since then, including at last month's NamesCon Global conference in Austin (actually we crossed paths before we even got to NamesCon while boarding the same flight from Tampa (where we both live) to Texas. 

As a master of juggling multiple tasks at the same time, Jason is putting DAC together while already serving as the Chief Marketing Officer for the Domain Days Dubai conference and as the Business Development and Partnerships Manager for JetsApps

If you look at some of the speakers already lined up for the inaugural edition of DAC you will see some very familiar names from the domain business, including Braden Pollock (Pollock 

Fund), Mark Ghoriafi (Sedo), Arjun Pande (Radix), Kevin Kopas (ShortDot) and Monte Cahn (RightOfTheDot) to name just a few. Of course, with Monte and the RightOfTheDot crew there you might think a live domain and digital assets auction will be part of the show - and you would be right!

Jason said the the heart of the Digital Asset Congress will be a  Networking Creator Lab where creativity and commerce will intersect, fostering a lively exchange of ideas and inspiration - all in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. The natural beauty wasn't the only reason he chose Reykjavik though. Reykjavik is strategically positioned between North America and Europe, making it a a central hub that facilitates easy and cost-effective travel for attendees from both continents. Jason noted, "This geographically advantageous location not only underscores the global significance of the congress but also ensures broader participation while keeping a mindful eye on keeping our carbon footprint lower."

You can learn more about the event at its official website and Early Bird tickets (at more than 50% off) are available now. If you plan to be part of the first Digital Asset Congress you will want to take advantage of that deal soon as prices go up after July 25.
