Video: Global Domain Summit 2017 Preview


The Global Domain Summit is a domain conference in China being held in July. Simon Cousins, CEO of industry consulting firm Allegravita, told me that conference organizers are expecting 2,000 attendees this year (up from 1,000 invite-only attendees last year). The event runs from Friday, July 7 through Sunday, July 9 in Xiamen, China.

To preview this year's conference Allegravita produced a video with English subtitles. From what I understand the event is mostly attended by domain investors from China, but there will be attendees and exhibitors from around the world participating.

If you have any questions about attending GDS 2017, you are welcome to post them in the comment section here or reach out directly to Simon.

Video: NamesCon India & WHD.India Recap


There were two related events held in India that were well attended by people in the domain industry. WHD.India and NamesCon India were held in Mumbai a couple of weeks ago. According to an email I received yesterday, there were 1,100 attendees at both events. NamesCon India was a conference I was hoping to attend, but I was away with my family in Florida for the week.

For those who missed these conferences and for those who attended and want to see some highlights, the conference organizers shared a video recap of both events. The video is pretty short, but you can get an idea of the size of the crowd in attendance by watching the video.

NamesCon India will definitely be on my list of events I want to attend next year if there is a 2018 event. Here's the video embedded below:

Global Domain Summit 2017 Set for July


Pinky Brand wrote an article geared towards American readers covering the upcoming Global Domain Summit. The China-based domain industry conference will take place in Xiamen, China from July 7-9.

If you are thinking about attending, you should definitely read Pinky's article. You should also have a look at the video Pinky created (embedded below) after last year's inaugural Global Domain Summit conference. It seems like the conference was well attended.

The conference website appears to only have Chinese text, so Pinky's article is probably the best way to learn about the conference at this point. Hopefully conference organizers will add an English translation for the website. On the bottom of the home page, it shows some of the (invited but not necessarily confirmed) conference attendees, and there are some familiar faces. Among them (more…) → Read More

NameSummit in August: Domain Names and Digital Branding


Name SummitDomain attorney Jason Schaeffer of and domain investor Steve Kaziyev recently announced that they are starting a new hybrid domain name conference called NameSummit. The inaugural event is scheduled for August 7-8, 2017, and it will be held at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel.  The event will bring together people from across the domain industry as well as professionals in the digital branding space.

Steve shared why he and Jason created an event that covers more than just domain names:

"It's been a long time in the planning to put together a conference that can bring domainers and branding specialists together right here in NYC. Branding is essential in any business or project.

Part of the digital branding equation are domain names, these digital assets play a big role at creating and developing these brands.

I Am Giving Away 4 Tickets to DNSeattle


DNSeattle-Logo-SquareMichael Cyger, founder of Domain Sherpa, announced that this year's DNSeattle domain industry networking event will take place on Thursday, May 25, 2017. The event will be held at a venue called The Living Room, which is located in Amazon’s Van Vorst building in Seattle.

According to Michael, "DNSeattle will focus on domain name buying, selling, monetizing, due diligence and legal issues, success stories from Seattle-based entrepreneurs and investors, and much more." Because of space limitations, only 100 tickets to the event are being sold. This sounds like the perfect sized event for networking.

One of the cool aspects of the event is that all proceeds from ticket sales are being donated to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, an organization I am happy to help support. To that end, I bought (more…) → Read More
