Here is the complete announcement:

Greetings!

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. has always kept the “noise out and the business in” for a decade now. Our formula is unique and has fostered the creation of more Domain Industry business deals than anywhere else. Other shows can wind you up, but T.R.A.F.F.I.C. winds you down. It is just a different philosophy with a different outcome. T.R.A.F.F.I.C. makes the conditions conducive to making deals and doing business.

We start with relaxing at the cabanas where you have some of the best pre-show networking anywhere and do business as you wind down a bit and enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Have a few seminars that are timely and pertinent and real. That arms you with new ideas to go home with and institute. Meals to break bread with each other and get to see old friends and meet new ones. Then parties to celebrate the business that was already done and still to come. That is the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. focus and formula and we have never tried to hide it and we won’t be changing it but we always try to improve.

Folks that come to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. never go home empty-handed. They can point to specific deals that more than pay for a first class experience and keep them coming back. We wrap all that up inside a World-Class 5 star hotel and make your business double as a tax-deductible vacation for you and your family. The ROI is priceless when you look back. Memories you will have for a lifetime and a lifestyle that improves with it.

As small as the Domain Industry is, there is still plenty of room for many formulas as we see and many more will come. Some folks like the hubbub and many classes and others like a more homogenized approach focused on doing business. Don’t come to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. for the parties however T.R.A.F.F.I.C. parties are legendary.

They come to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. to do business and make decisions. Decisions they can look back on and clearly see the importance of.  T.R.A.F.F.I.C. sets up the conditions and atmosphere that keeps you on the cutting edge as the future comes at us at warp speed. We keep it real regardless of the pressure we get.

As T.R.A.F.F.I.C. celebrates its 10th Anniversary year starting in Las Vegas from May 28th to May 31st at the Bellagio Hotel with the cabana networking starting on the 27th and then its 10th Anniversary show at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach from October 30th, until, November 2nd, 2014 with cabana networking starting on the 29th, it is an opportunity to look back as well as forward; to see that 135 person gathering in 2004 that launched an industry become the blossoming and forceful power that the Domain Investment Industry has become, is quite a journey.

Each conference has its own focus, audience and way of doing things. T.R.A.F.F.I.C. always looks to improve your networking experience and opportunities as our only focus is enhancing your business objectives not ours

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas will have a No Reserve gTLD auction with domains released directly from the registries plus 18 gTLD proponents representing as many as 2/3 of all the new extensions will be offered 5 minutes of podium time to pitch their new extensions to those that are interested.

By the end of May, there will be many gTLD’s that will be actively seeking your business and T.R.A.F.F.I.C. will give them a platform to do that business. Many will relish the opportunity to sway a professional and skeptical crowd and some will not be up to or ready for that challenge. As professionals, you will take it all into account. THEY have to make the case. The burden is on them and they will have to share their visions.

This is the domain industry of which .com is the foundation and focus for most. All extensions will be examined as we have each and every time over the years as we are eager to expand if we hear a compelling case. But that does not mean we will ignore the main focus and turn the show into a gTLD event. This is their “Coming out party” and we will give them their proper time and spotlight.

Here are some of the things we will cover and as you can see most of which are universale no matter what extension you might focus on:

How to build an ecommerce site to develop into a business from your best domains while increasing the value. Concept to live in 9 days.

How to find willing partners to develop your raw domains into thriving businesses. 

Fishing for whales or fishing for minnows. Same work, same time, different outcomes.

How do you buy a domain that stands directly in the crossroads of the future?

Mining for domains or mining for Bitcoins? With so many opportunities how do you pick a path?

Gtld

Quicksand or gold? Horse race or stampede? The most honest, direct and comprehensive debate and conversation about where the future leads.  

There will be plenty of room in the fabric of the Internet for alternate extensions IF the public and end user accepts them and there is something of value for them there. Those are all open questions and the answers in the next few months will begin to reveal themselves. We will discuss those revelations and what they mean regardless of where the answers lead.

In 2004, we were an unknown factor looking to take on a world stage and make the case why domain names were such a powerful and important business tool that was essential going into the future. In 2014 there is no question that domain names will lead the news and the way forward.

Welcome to the future. Domains have gone from the obscure to center stage and Domain Investors like us have been there each and every step of the way. Your expertise will have great value going forward. I dream of one day asking a CEO “What is their “Domain Strategy?” and instead of that glazed over eye look, being directed to their “Chief Domain Name Strategist”.

In 2004, the first choice for a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Conference was the Fontainebleau Hotel in beautiful Miami Beach. However, they did not understand the industry at the time and could not accommodate us. (Actually they would bot even talk to us) But as we have done before, we just kept trying and this time they understood what TRAFFIC was all about and welcomed us with open arms.

This will be our first weekend show and the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Premiere Party promises to be a spectacular Halloween Masquerade Ball.  The Hotel is working with us to provide a program for families of all ages, so we will be encouraging everyone to bring their kids for magical Trick or Treats and other full-time activities.

Before that, however, T.R.A.F.F.I.C. LAS VEGAS will once again be held at the Top Rated Bellagio Hotel with all the bells and whistles and time to celebrate past successes and plant the seed for your future successes.

2014 is a year to celebrate surviving the recession and looking to the future once again. Just 6 months ago we were all hearing doom and gloom as I was writing about the “Boom” that was coming. Well here it is and if you don’t get your fair share………

We look forward to seeing you there because T.R.A.F.F.I.C. means B.U.S.I.N.E.S.S.

Serious people doing serious business and having a good time doing it. That’s the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. formula.

That is our case for coming to T.R.A.F.F.I.C.  We will not bombard you with hype for the next 5 months. I think the industry will be hyped out pretty soon if not already. But you will see a very serious set of shows as we celebrate 10 years with you! See you there

If you read this far and have not purchased your Las Vegas Tickets for $1495 (that includes 2 nights at the #1 Rated Bellagio Hotel. Less taxes, fees and personal expenses) we are delighted to offer our special Airport Pickup Service just for signing up this week that will whisk you from the airport to the Bellagio Entrance. And for those companies bringing 5 or more employees, we have a special just for you. Just contact Howard with your requirements.

Lastly, sponsorships are now on sale as well. They start at just $1000. Pricing is more attractive than ever. That is the only part of our formula that has changed and you will be delighted with the new price points.

That’s it. Talk to you again in the next month or two as we prepare our agenda and make it important and pertinent to you and your businesses and your futures.

There is a lot of information and agendas out there. You can rest assured that at T.R.A.F.F.I.C., our only agenda is you and your success.

Rick, Alina, Howard and Barbara and the rest of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. crew look forward to welcoming you again in 2014. We really are family. Thank you for being part of that family for the last decade!!
