NamesCon is taking place at the Omni Hotel’s downtown Austin location. The exhibition area, breakout sessions, and workshops — as well as the meeting and lounge areas — take place in this location. The keynotes, partner workshops, and the live domain auction also take place at the Omni. Some other key events are within a few minutes’ walk.
Day 2: Thursday January 30, 2020
The Domain Economic Forum kicks off with sessions around transparency. Other sessions include valuation, monetization, and branding. All day you can visit the Exhibition Area and meet a wide range of presenting partners. NamesCon Live Domain Auction is also today.
Here are some sessions not to miss on day 2 of NamesCon 2020:
-> How to Get the Full Value from Your Domain (Panel)
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM @ Keynote Hall
Your domain assets may be far more valuable generating recurring revenue than they are in your For-Sale folder or on the auction block. In this session you’ll discover new monetization strategies, or fine-tune what you’re currently doing to improve your recurring returns.
-> The UDRP After 20 Years: Opportunities for Improvement? (Panel)
11:00 AM – 12:00 AM @ Keynote Hall
It’s been 20 years since the UDRP was enacted. Has it been a success, or has it been a failure for registrants? The ICANN Working Group mandated to review the UDRP is underway. What reforms and changes are needed to the UDRP? Hear from both the Czech Arbitration Court and the Forum, two of the six accredited UDRP dispute resolution providers, as well as a prominent domain name investor and a leading UDRP lawyer.
-> Keynote Speaker – Aman Bhutani, CEO of GoDaddy
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM @ Keynote Hall
Since taking the helm in September, Bhutani has reaffirmed his commitment to transparency, as well as GoDaddy’s commitment to helping individuals and entrepreneurs realize their visions by getting the right domain and the right website. Over 20 years of technical, entrepreneurial, managerial, and leadership experience has led him to this stage in his career, and he has many valuable insights to share about the future of GoDaddy—and how domain investors play an important role.
