Aussies get new gTLD conference

Kevin Murphy, August 3, 2012, Domain Policy

A conference dedicated to new generic top-level domains is set to run in Australia this November.
The New TLD Summit, organized by a new company called Brand Huddle, will feature local speakers including ICANN director Chris Disspain (of auDA) and vice-chair Bruce Tonkin (of Melbourne IT).
The three-day event is “aimed and assisting trademark and brand owners navigate through the new ICANN TLD Program.”
The conference appears to have a general upbeat take on the topic, with speakers from some antipodean gTLD applicants, but with sessions on brand infringement and risk management to balance it out.
Ticket prices for the workshops do not yet seem to be available, and some of the agenda is still TBC, but the expo part of the show is said to be free.
The New TLD Summit will run from November 21 to 23 this year at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Center.
