The Domain Conference

The Domain Conference

The overwhelming success of the recent Domain Conference is testament to the resilience and strength of the domain industry. Well over 200 domain investors and service providers gathered in Florida for an outstanding time of networking and learning about the abundant opportunities in the domain industry.

I do apologise but this article will have to be quick as I'm writing it in Sydney just before my next flight to Melbourne.....nothing like a 30 hour journey home!

So what made it such a success? The Neu family, together with their team, made all of the attendees feel welcome while at the same time ensuring that the event went off without a hitch. Congratulations should be offered to all those behind the scenes who made it such an enjoyable event.

As a conference venue, the Hyatt Regency, was exceptional. The rooms were at the right price, the conference facilities were world class and everyone just seemed to hang around. This was evident by the number of people talking and doing business in the large bar area each night.

I had an interesting conversation with Jeff Saas from .club in the hotel bar one night about how to make a conference success for your own business. To paraphrase the conversation, “The repeated attending of conferences and industry events will grow your business as people get to know you and the fact that you’ll hang around.” In other words, the more you attend the more likely you’ll be successful.

I’ve made the journey across the Pacific innumerable times now and I heartily agree with Jeff. A large reason why my own company, ParkLogic, is so successful is that I’ve put in the effort and the resources to associate with my peers. There is nothing like breaking bread with someone to really learn about their business needs and to see if you can meet them.

I should also mention that ParkLogic released a sneak preview of the dashboard for our new platform at the conference. After listening to what domainers really want from a domain management platform we spent the last year in developing everything from the ground up. I will be regularly posting videos of ParkLogic Next that will feature some new and exciting features. Check out next.parklogic.com

As many of you are aware, I have recently published my debut science fiction book Battleframe. The domain industry has given me so much and as a thank-you I gave out over 100 free signed copies to conference attendees. The level of encouragement for writing the novel from the domain community was really inspiring….thank you everyone!

For those people that didn’t receive a copy of Battleframe, I’ve decided to give out a free copy of the e-book via Amazon to 50 people. All you need to do is go to battleframe.club and register for your e-book and then send me an email with the number that you receive after filling in the brief form.

The conference sessions were also excellent with some refreshing content shared by experts in their respective fields. Despite my own hectic meeting schedule, I made sure I attended a number of the sessions.

As you may have guessed the conference was so successful that it will be held again next year. If you didn’t attend this year then whatever you do, don’t miss out next year! See you then.

Great write up

Hope you had a nice trip home. It was great to get a copy of the book at the show and I am enjoying it. I agree that the show was a great success and that the more you go the more you get out of them as people really do get to know you.
