New domain industry event kicks off this evening.
Thursday night’s festivities include a cocktail reception and crawfish boil. Too bad I don’t eat seafood.
I’m giving two presentations. First, I’ll provide some of the results from the 2009 Domain Name Wire survey during lunch on Friday. Ron Jackson will be giving a sales update during the same lunch before I speak. Later Friday afternoon I’ll be on a panel about offshoring, where I’ll question the logic of trying to escape the United States jurisdiction, and the challenges you face when doing so.
The event should be a slower pace than last month’s DOMAINfest. There’s lots of social time, and I estimate about 200 people will be there. The smaller crowd will be welcome for me, as it gives me a better chance to meet people at the show without having to seek them out.
If you want to attend and can make the last minute trip, registration is still available for $895. Note that the hotel is sold out.
Stay tuned to Domain Name Wire for updates from the conference.
