DomainFest Macau

DomainFest Macau

I'm now sitting at Hong Kong airport waiting for my plane to return me home to Melbourne Australia from DomainFest in Macau. The conference was an outstanding success on so many fronts that in the limited time I have before my flight I'll try to get through a few of them.

For a start, the organisation team from .Asia with ample support from Allegravita should be congratulated on hosting a great event. Of course, we must not forget all of the work that Jothan Frakes did to make it all happen.

It was wonderful meeting a lot of new domain investors from China and abroad that were seeking to learn further about our incredible industry. I'm really sorry that I didn't manage to get around to everyone as there was only so much time in the day.

What I really enjoyed were a number of sessions that I attended outside of all of the meetings. I'm finding that with Simon Cousins able mentoring that I'm finally beginning to understand the nuiances of the Chinese domain space. I absolutely came away with a possible strategy for moving forward and engaging this incredibly diverse and massive market.

Edmon Chung (CEO of .Asia) presented an absolutely brilliant summary of the Chinese market that really opened my eyes up to the opportunities. I hope to get a copy of the presentation and share parts of it here on my blog.

It was also great catching up with old friends and have some good times with them. Many of us had a brilliant time at a Water show that was very reminiscent of Cirque de Soliel (I think that's the spelling!)

Sorry.....gotta go my flights's just called for boarding.
