    There is a domaining conference in Vegas in January. Is this a quality convention to attend?

    I have bad experience with namescon

    Any organizations and groups don't care about individual customers, they don't really understanding to do good business

    year after year, lot of promotions there, everyone now knows this conference.

    I think their mission is obviously to increase the total revenue by leveraging their international influence, but they dont have enough attention to focus on individual quality.

    As a domainer, you treat your domains like your own kids, they treat your domain like pork and chicken in supermarket

    That's the key difference.


    After the events, their financial reports can tell that they achieve millions of sales in one day, but the fact could be a lot of 5 figure names eventually sold in 4 figures

    em...I dont want to mislead, maybe it is worth to attend because you can know more experienced domainers and face to face learn lots of things. you can definitely learn better this industry if you attend. just dont expect too much

    I am saying the negative part only apply to the selling price of the domains


    where to sell doesn't really matter, attending this event doesnt help selling high- sometimes maybe low

    NamesCon is now the biggest and best domaining conference out there. I've been to all 4 NamesCon shows, numerous Domainfest shows (back when), and Traffic, and there is no better way to meet and network with other domainers face to face. Well worth going to NamesCon next January, and tickets are cheaper to buy now, than latter. If you 'want2learn' this biz, I'd definitely suggest going and decide then it's value to you. Also there's a new conference this summer in NYC - NameSummit you may want to consider attending.

    Too bad Namepros doesn't do a raffle or give away for Vegas Conference. That would be awesome, especially if I won a ticket or two! I checked the dates for NYC, and we start back to school already. Will be easier to go to Vegas!

    What you need to understand is it will be a lot different then this years'

    Since we won't have to waste time with old owners who were beyond greedy and prideful

    I decided I am going to the one in Vegas when I heard about it for a few reasons.
    I am a days drive away.
    It is January. Far warmer in Vegas than where I reside.
    A legit excuse to go to Vegas.
    People from around the world gathering together who have been doing what I am trying to learn.

    I am certain there will be so much bs to sort through your head will spin. How can there not be? That will be part of the fun and learning as well.

    The problem with going to a convention is having to admit you have gone........:xf.grin:
     
  22. 3 tickets to NamesCon in Vegas are being given away here:
    There's about 24 hours left to place your guess.

    Good luck to all,
