DomainFest Macau - Here I come!

DomainFest Macau - Here I come!

Once again I find myself sitting in the Qantas club at Melbourne airport waiting for my plane to head to DomainFest in Macau. It's been a little while since Namescon earlier this year and I'm really excited to catch-up with many of my domaining friends and make some new ones.

So why do I make all of these long-haul journeys? No surprisingly, I've found the more you attend conferences, the more friends you make and the more business results. What's great is that  I'm now conducting business with friends not just partners or clients. We've known each other for so many years that in many cases I know all of their children as well.

So when I look at DomainFest Macau I'm really hoping to not just "do business" but make new friends. It's taking the long-term view that helps build good solid businesses and long-lasting friendships.

I'm really looking forward to speaking at the conference and have been asked to be share in two sessions. It should be a great time.....and even more so as we work with a Chinese interpretter.

If you aren't going to DomainFest then it's not too late! It would be great to catch-up and swap domaining stories. In the meantime, my flights just been called so I'd better get going.

Safe travels everyone!
