Submit proposals to speak at NamesCon 2020.
NamesCon is taking a new approach for its NamesCon Global 2020 event next year. Not only is it in a new location (Austin), but it is calling it The Domain Economic Forum. Its goal is to expand beyond just the domain topics we’re used to.
It’s also opening up the sessions a bit.
In an email last week, the group noted, “we’re proud of how we partner with our sponsors to create deep and actionable experiences at NamesCon Global”. This alludes to the fact that most sessions are paid sessions, not selected just because of their value to the audience.
But for 2020, it wants to augment this with other sessions. NamesCon just opened a call for session proposals. Organizers want session proposals related to three tracks:
- The economics of the domain name ecosystem – understanding the size and scope of the domain industry as a whole, especially the secondary market.
- Navigating market threats and opportunities – how alternative online presences through marketplaces and social media threaten domains.
- The buyer’s perspective – domain buyers’ stories and case studies
Proposals can be submitted online.
