NamesCon
Global 2020 News Including 1st Keynote Speaker,
Live Domain Auction & Fun Day Finale

After
6 years in Las Vegas
NamesCon
Global
is ready to unveil its
updated
and upgraded conference 
– now sub-titled The Domain
Economic Forum
– that will be
staged in a new city – Austin,
Texas
January 29-February
1, 2020
. With the big event at
the Omni Hotel (located in
the heart of the Lone Star State’s
capital city) now just two months
away, show updates are starting to
come in hot and heavy.

On
Monday NamesCon Global announced the
first of what will be several keynote
speakers
with that honor going
to James
Booth
, the
extraordinarily successful young
domain broker who runs Phenom.com.
James has cleared over $30
million
in sales before turning
30, with $10 million of that
booked in 2019 alone. In addition to
their skills in buying and selling
domain names, James and his team
help brands improve their online
presence, starting with that
critical first step – acquiring the
perfect domain name.

In
Austin, James will speak in a
fireside chat format. He will
discuss the many facets of value
that a domain can offer, and the key
role trust plays in forming the
relationships that make deals
happen.

As
always, NamesCon Global will
feature a live domain
auction
but, as with
other aspects of the show
agenda, there will be a new
twist
with the sale. For
2020 it has moved to the GoDaddy
Auction platform

where pre-bidding is already
open. One thing will remain
the same – Monte Cahn’s RightOfTheDot.com
will co-coordinate the live
bidding action on site for
the January 30 event
(an extended online auction
will continue to February
14, 2020
). 

Among
the domains already
confirmed for the live
auction are 

Laptop.com,
Arcades.com, Ofices.com,
Lasers.com and Calories.com,
to name a few. If you have a
premium domain you would like
to submit you can do that here.

Another
new wrinkle at
NamesCon Global this
year will be an
all-day Fun Day
that will close the
show on Saturday,
February 1
. The
Fun Day concept was
introduced at NamesCon
Europe
in
Lisbon, Portugal this
past summer and it
proved to be a big
hit. Fun Day gives attendees and
their partners an
opportunity to spend the day
casually networking and celebrating
the conclusion of a
productive conference.
At NamesCon Global it
will run from 10am to
5pm at Banger’s Sausage House and Beer
Garden
, an Austin institution famous for its sausage,
barbecue and over 200 beers on
tap.

Registration
for NamesCon Global is now
open and if you need a ticket
this would be the time to get
one as they are running a 30%
off Thanksgiving sale
through
Thursday, November 28
(Thanksgiving Day in the
United States). That drops the
normal $699 ticket price to
$489.30 You can also book
your hotel room
at
the Omni at special NamesCon
Global rates starting at $229.
We, will of course, be in
Austin and hope to see many of
you in person there.
