    Oversee.net’s DomainSponsor announces plans for 2014 conference.

    DomainFestDomainSponsor’s annual DomainFest conference is changing its branding back to DomainFest and has set its dates for 2014.

    The nine year old conference changed its name last year to WebFest Global because the agenda had expanded beyond domain names into search, mobile, and web development. Although it appears this year’s event will also focus on these expanded topics, the company is reverting its branding back to DomainFest. I think this is a good move, as many in the industry still referred to the conference by this name.

    The conference is also returning to the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood. The event had shifted from Hollywood to Santa Monica for the past few years.

    Earlybird pricing is $695 through February 14, and there will be day passes available for the first day of the conference.

    It will be interesting to see how attendance is for the show. The conference typically takes place in late January or early February, and this year NamesCon filled that void. Also, DomainFest is being announced just two months in advance, which isn’t much notice.

    Interesting.
    I’d love to see a poll of who may attend.

    I am curious to know the cause for the delay in the decision to hold the conference or not. I wonder why they decided to jump back in, after it seemed they had given up on the plan to hold another DomainFest.
