New TLD event to focus on legal aspects of new top level domain names.
Conference organizer World Congress is planning its 2nd Annual Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) Names Summit for this September.
The one day event will take place September 25 at the Affinia in New York City. It is targeted to intellectual property professionals and brand managers.
The agenda is still in the works, but much of it will focus on brand protection as well as strategies to roll out .brand domain names. Speakers include counsel from Abbot Laboratories, Citibank, Dell, Google, True Religion Brand Jeans, and Verizon.
Papers can be submitted for consideration here.
Pricing for law firms and consultants is $1195 through July 12. In-house counsel event passes are just $195 until July 12. You can use promo code IPM300 to take $300 off the registration fee.
