“DomainFest @NamesCon” in 2015 re-launched the DOMAINfest brand as a series of international events. Originally started in 2004, DOMAINfest has provided an excellent venue for newcomers and veterans alike – a place to network and discuss domain names. We’re pleased to have the DOMAINfest brand as part of the NamesCon family, and we are continuing the DOMAINfest events internationally as a means to increase local networking, bring domain marketplace content to conferences about domain names or closely affiliated industries (such as trademark law, hosting, start-ups, etc), all with the objective of attracting people to NamesCon held annually every January in Las Vegas – the largest commercial event for the business of domain names.

DOMAINfest is a long-standing series of events by and for people doing business with domain names.  With the growth and expansion of the use of domain names and the opportunity that follows, DOMAINfest events are now a great way to gather groups of interested people for networking, or to add content about domain names to vertical industry events where domain use is growing.  DOMAINfest events are magnificent ways to add a familiar brand to other established conferences – your event, our content – to educate about and discuss the business of domains.  If you work with domain names, never miss the NamesCon in Las Vegas each January, and treat yourself to a DOMAINfest so that you get a sample of the great content and networking.
