As you all know by now, I’m a big fan of domain name conferences. As a community that usually only has the chance to connect online, getting together in-person is a blast. My first domain conference was TRAFFIC Las Vegas in 2010 (thanks to Rick for one heck of a show!) and after that, I couldn’t get enough.
I can still remember my first morning at TRAFFIC, Ron Jackson, who had been one of my heroes in the domain name world invited me to breakfast with him, Rick Schwartz, and Howard Neu. These were people that before the conference had felt like legendary figures to me, sitting with them at breakfast was an incredible experience.
What I really like about conferences is getting that chance to talk to a wide range of people and hear what everyone is doing. What’s working, what isn’t, and how can we possibly work together to help each other out. While it’s not looking like getting together in-person is going to be in the cards anytime soon, I was really excited to see that Page Howe, a domain industry veteran and one heck of a nice guy has decided to launch the first “Virtual Domain Conference” this June.
Here’s a bit more from Page about the event:
You can sign up for the conference at TheDomainShow.com. Page has decided to make registration free for the first 500 sign-ups or until April 15th. I just signed up and I hope to see many of you there. Thanks to Page for hosting the show, I think this is a great idea and I’m definitely looking forward to it!
