Domain companies en route to Austin later this week.
Several domain name companies are heading to Austin later this week for the start of the annual South by Southwest Music, Film and Interactive Festival. The Interactive portion of the event attracted over 10,000 attendees last year. Many stay in town for the music festival, which kicks off in the middle of next week. Although the interactive festival is big, music is a big draw: over 2,000 musical acts will play at 80 official venues next week, and many more unofficially.
So here’s who I know will be in town for SXSW 2010:
DirectNIC – domain registrar will have a booth at the Interactive trade show. Swing by booth 932 to say ‘hi’.
Name.com – will be at the show
Demand Media – the company has a big contingent in Austin, thanks to its acquisition of Pluck
Traverse Legal – one of the attorneys at Traverse Legal, which handles a number of domain name cases, will be here
If you’re with a domain name company and heading to Austin for SXSW, feel free to leave a comment.
