Despite competition, TRAFFIC ranks as most popular domain conference.
A survey of 400 domain professionals shows that T.R.A.F.F.I.C. is still the top domain name industry conference. 56% of respondents voted for TRAFFIC, more than twice the votes of the second place conference.
Here are the results:
1. TRAFFIC 56%
2. DOMAINfest 24%
3. Domain Roundtable 11%
4. GeoDomain Expo 10%
Survey results were collected in January and part of February.
The biggest gainer this year was the GeoDomain Expo, which grew from 5% to 10%. Between the last survey and this year’s survey GeoDomain Expo held its biggest ever conference. Surprisingly, DNJournal is reporting that this year’s GeoDomain Expo in San Diego will not be held this year due to the economy. I suspect there’s something more to the story than the economy; I believe the event still would have attracted a large audience this year. I left a voice mail with Associated Geo’s Patrick Carleton on Friday but have not yet heard back.
The next TRAFFIC conference will be held in April in Silicon Valley. In June Domain Roundtable will hold the first ever major domain name conference in Washington, D.C.
