It was announced today in LasVegas that NamesCon will move to Austin, Texas next year.
The first NamesCon took place in Las Vegas in 2014 and stayed there for a total of 6 years. This year is the last event to be held in Las Vegas.
The 2020 event will be in Austin, Texas. The dates of the show are not yet known but I expect it to be around the same dates as always.
Austin is a small city (Population: 950,715) close to San Antonio and not very far from Houston and Dallas.
Here are a few details of the city of Austin from Wikipedia:
“Austin is the state capital of Texas, an inland city bordering the Hill Country region. Home to the University of Texas flagship campus, Austin is known for its eclectic live-music scene centered around country, blues and rock. Its many parks and lakes are popular for hiking, biking, swimming and boating. South of the city, Formula One’s Circuit of the Americas raceway has hosted the United States Grand Prix.”
Looking forward to:
1. The fresh, new venue
2. The new gtlds no longer being .wasteful distractions
Amen. I have been waiting for this moment too. The thought of paying to hear some new tld dreamer talk about how his .ReallyStupidExtensionGoesHere will be the next .Com has always been nauseating to me. Now that the new G’s are largely considered dead, I think it’s safe to go back in the water and I look forward to doing so next January.
See you in Texas, Konstantinos.
This is great news. I live about 3 hours away from Austin. Hope to meet some of you there in 2020.
