We’ve had to change the dates for NamesCon Global 2020 to January 29-February 1, partly because of a day at the beach. That may warrant further explanation, so NamesCon CEO Soeren von Varchmin and Head of NamesCon Helga Neumer stepped up.
“Our NamesCon Europe 2019 Beach Day was such a huge success that we knew we had to do a dedicated fun day in Austin,” says Soeren. “Since our program for that day can only be done on a weekend, we’ve had to shift the event dates to 29-February 1. So it starts a few days later than before.” (Also, we can’t mess with Super Bowl Sunday…)
We’ll kick off on Wednesday the 29th with Beginner and Expert tracks as well as the opening reception. Then NamesConGlobal moves into two action-packed days of programming. These will include the exhibition hall and the famous live domain auction. We’ll wrap up with a day of fun and networking “out of the office”, so to speak.
“I can’t tell you yet what the fun day will be,” says Helga. “It’s still a surprise!”
From Vision to Reality
“The date change also allows us to better realize our vision for NamesCon Global 2020, which we’re calling ‘The Domain Economic Forum’,” says Soeren. “NamesCon has evolved from an investor-focused event into the central event for everything domain-related. We’re happy to bring in domain name investors, registries, registrars, internet service providers, attorneys, brand managers, affiliate marketing companies, domain marketplaces, parking companies, financial service providers, and individual end-users. We’re looking beyond the right or left of the dot: now we’re taking you 360 degrees around the dot!”
“Our team has been going back and forth between Cologne and Austin to get things ready, even though the event is six months away,” says Helga. “It’s a lot of flying, but it’s worth it!” The team scored a new partnership with the Omni Hotel Austin Downtown: it’s a cool, chic spot with a rooftop pool. The special NamesCon rate is $200 less than the OMNI’s average price per night.
So mark your calendar: NamesCon Global 2020, January 29-February 1 in Austin, Texas. Sorry about the date change, but we’re sure you’ll agree that it’ll be worth it. Early-bird registration is still open until July 31, so you can save a few hundred bucks. See you soon!
