NamesCon sets dates and pricing.
Domain name investor Richard Lau is organizing a new domain name conference this coming January, as reported Friday on DNN.
The conference in Las Vegas will be called NamesCon. A location has not yet been named, but dates are finalized for January 13-15, 2014. Early bird passes are available for $325 for the first 50 who register before November 1. Prices will increase as it gets closer to the event, with walk up prices of $925 at the door.
Organizers anticipate 400 attendees.
A handful of speakers have already been named for the conference.
Although the date is very close to when Webfest has been held in previous years, you can expect Webfest to be held later than usual next year. Last year Oversee.net announced the dates in September for a February show, and even that announcement was later than in previous years.
It will be interesting to see if a domain conference in Vegas in January affects attendance at the TRAFFIC conference in the same city in Spring 2014.
