A weekend of domain festivities in Washington D.C.
Domain Roundtable officially kicked off this evening in Washington, D.C. at the Grand Hyatt. But this weekend was filled with unofficial activities for a few of the early arrivers.
Saturday evening David and Michael Castello graciously treated a dozen early arrivals to dinner at Central Michel Richard. In attendance were a number of familiar domain industry faces such as Phil Corwin of Internet Commerce Association and Mike Mann, founder of BuyDomains.
On Sunday, Mann held a party at his Bethesda home for about 75 internet industry professionals. The crowd consisted of people attending Domain Roundtable as well as a number of local internet entrepreneurs. Some of those in attendance run companies partially funded by Mann, such as SEO.com.
Here’s a picture from the back of Mann’s house:
While roaming the inside of Mann’s house, I noticed a handful of his former license plates:
This evening Domain Roundtable kicked off with a welcome cocktail. It was scheduled to end at 9 pm, but at 9:30 the crowd showed no signs of abating.
