Two 2014 new gTLD conferences planned

Two new gTLD conferences with different focuses are planned for early 2014.

NamesCon is a new event “For Registries, Registrars and Registrants” planned by long-time domainer Richard Lau, due to be held somewhere in Las Vegas January 13 to 15.

The early line-up is looking more domainer-heavy than new gTLD conferences we’ve seen to date, which might make it a good opportunity for registries to network with investor “market makers”.

Momentum Consulting has also confirmed dates for its third Digital Marketing & gTLD Strategy Congress.

Set for March 3 to 4 at the Dream Hotel in New York, the site of the first conference earlier this year, the third event promises “real-world launch case studies timed to coincide with the anticipated delegation and launch of the initial wave of new TLDs” according to Momentum.

The Congress is a more brand-oriented event.

The first 25 people to buy tickets will apparently get full recordings of the recent London event thrown in.
