5 NamesCon Tips – (Please Share Yours)


NamesConNamesCon is about a month away, and I understand that conference organizers are expecting "well over 1,400 attendees" at this year's conference. I think NamesCon is well worth attending, and I bought my ticket several months ago. I will be landing in Las Vegas on Saturday night, and I leave on a Tuesday night redeye back to Boston.

I thought I would share 5 conference tips with readers. Some of these suggestions can be acted on right now, and perhaps it will provide a tax benefit or cost savings. I encourage you to share any advice you have in the comment section. If I think of anything else, I will share it there.

Hotel - If you are looking for convenience, staying at the Tropicana is the way to go. The rooms are more than adequate, and you'll be very close to meetings and events. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious, the Cosmopolitan, Aria, Vdara, and MGM all are good options. If you're looking for something more economical, I think the Luxor and Hard Rock may be less expensive. There is some bridge → Read More

Are You Going to THE Domain Conference?


One week from today, I will be flying to Ft. Lauderdale for THE Domain Conference. Although the event officially starts on Saturday, I have a weekend commitment at home and will be attending Monday through Wednesday. I am curious if you are attending the event, and I invite you to let me/us know in the comment section.

If you are still on the fence, I think you will find it to be a good event for networking. The conference will be smaller than NamesCon, and this allows me to spend more time individually with friends and business colleagues without feeling rushed. The spacious venue allows for private chats as well as some semi-private discussions.

I feel like Barbara, Howard, and Ray Neu go out of their way to make conference attendees feel like they are attending a family event, and I appreciate that aspect of this conference. I am looking forward to attending.

I had a brief email exchange with Howard last night, and he said there are a few tidbits about the conference that have not yet been shared: (more…) → Read More
