New gTLD conference timing might end up being perfect after all.
Yesterday ICANN released documents showing that it is formally invoking the GAC-Board consultation process and intends to approve the final applicant guidebook for new TLDs in March.
That makes .Nxt’s February timing pretty darn good for people in the new gTLD ecosystem. The event will take place February 8-10 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.
It looks like over a dozen companies have signed on to sponsor the event, including domain name registrars Go Daddy, OpenSRS, and Network Solutions as well as registries Afilias and Neustar.
ICANN CEO Rod Beckstrom and .Co Internet CEO Juan Diego Calle will deliver keynotes.
Conference registration is still available for $495.
