The Next Web (TNW) Europe Conference – Day 2

Second day at the The Next Web (TNW) Europe conference was as good as the first day. I think there were even more people attending the second day and final day.

People in Amsterdam sure like their bicycles and their lockers:

I finally found the Uniregistry booth. I don’t know how I missed it the first day…

Jeff Sass was for a second day speaking to people about .Club and new domain names. I bet he found some buyers for some premium .club domains!!!

There were again 6 stages active at every time with different themes and speakers. Some had a different theme from the first day and some the same.

He came to the conference by wakeboarding in the Amsterdam canals in a tux. And he made the YouTube homepage with this video!

And here is a company that likes domain names and it shows. Takeaway.com has built an empire in Europe on their many .com and ccTLD domain names.
