.nxt new gTLD conference open for registration

The third .nxt conference on new generic top-level domains opened for early bird registrations today.

Having appeared twice in San Francisco, this time it’s my home town of London’s turn to host the event.

Organizer Kieren McCarthy is hoping to attract an international audience passing through London on their way to the ICANN 44 public meeting in Prague, Czech Republic.

The conference will be held at the Park Plaza Victoria in central London on June 20 to 22, ending just before the first day of meetings in Prague.

The three-track agenda can be found here.

I attended the first two .nxts in person and remotely and I’ve found that McCarthy is pretty good at lining up an excellent range of compelling speakers and panelists.

The main drawback some have found is that many of the attendees are likely to be the same faces you’ll see at ICANN meetings.

However, with this being the first .nxt to happen after April 12 – when hundreds of new companies have filed their applications and committed to enter the domain name industry – there very well might be a broader range of delegates at the London show.

Early bird pricing, available before April 12, starts at £399 ($632) plus 20% tax for the full three days. It then goes up to £599 ($949) plus tax. Day passes are also available.

You can take advantage of the discounted pricing by registering here.

  1. Thanks for the coverage.

    And yes, the plan is to get new faces on stage. All the applications will be public some weeks before, so it’s a chance for everyone to really understand this new market.

    The overall aim is to have a informative, and fun, business conference – rather than yet another policy conference.

    It’s a hell of a lot of work but I am really looking forward to this one – see you there.
