Domaining Europe

Domaining Europe becomes NamesCon Europe

Domaining Europe will transition into NamesCon Europe beginning with the upcoming June 7-9th event in Valencia, Spain.

Dietmar Stefitz, who founded Domaining Europe in 2008, will directly manage the 2018 event with the assistance of NamesCon producers Terri Potratz and Tania Kabantsov.

The agreement between Domaining Europe and NamesCon was confirmed at the beginning of 2018, shortly after NamesCon Global conference in Las Vegas. The rebranding of Domaining Europe to NamesCon Europe is in effect for the upcoming June 2018 event in Valencia.

As Domaining Europe enters its 10th year, NamesCon will work with founder Dietmar Stefitz to facilitate his retirement and to transform this iconic conference into NamesCon Europe. Dietmar will directly manage the 2018 event to ensure a smooth transition. Dietmar will then continue to advise as brand ambassador following the 2018 event.

“After 10 years of hard work I am thrilled to find a new home for Domaining Europe. NamesCon is the only entity to carry on this conference in the spirit of all involved, be it attendees, sponsors, or speakers. I want to thank all participants of Domaining Europe in the last years and wish the team of NamesCon Europe all the best for the future.” – Dietmar Stefitz, Domaining Europe

“We are very excited to contribute to a successful NamesCon Europe 2018 under the direction of founder Dietmar Stefitz. Europe is an important forum for NamesCon, and as we enter into the 10th year of Domaining Europe we look forward to honoring Dietmar?s legacy and bringing even more value to the event for both attendees and partners.” – Soeren von Varchmin, NamesCon

“The initiative to create NamesCon Europe as a successor to Domaining Europe will likely benefit the domain industry in much of the same way NamesCon Global has done in USA. The industry needs events that has a primary focus on commercial use and ownership of domain names. Naturally, an event like this becomes a melting pot for meetings between all layers of the domain industry.” – Rolf Larsen, .GLOBAL
