For many of us, there is never a good enough reason to go to Vegas…except for the latter part of January when our good friends, Richard Lau and his team, put on one of the best domain industry events of the year. For four full days, NamesCon brings together the biggest names in the domain and hosting industries, from end-users to registries, for a chance to network and learn about the latest news and technology in the field.
As one of the newest registries, we are extremely pleased to announce that some of the folks here at Knock Knock WHOIS There (KKWT) will be attending NamesCon, including our very own Matt Mullenweg. For those of you who remember the very first NamesCon 4 years ago, Braden Pollock, a seasoned domainer and online business entrepreneur, and Matt had a wonderful keynote fireside chat that they will continue on Tuesday, January 24th at 10:00am in the Uniregistry Keynote Hall. The topic this time will be:
‘WordPress, co-founded by Matt Mullenweg, already powers over a quarter of the Internet. His billion dollar startup, Automattic, is undoubtedly an Internet success. Come hear about his personal experiences and his next billion dollar idea.’
In addition, KKWT are proud sponsors of this amazing event. First off, we will be the sponsor for The Coffee Hut. Be sure to come by for your morning coffee or pick-me-up and say hello to our friendly staff. Second, the always fun Women in Domaining Dinner where we will be giving away a Series 2 Apple Watch to one lucky attendee. And finally, the reason NamesCon even exists, WaterNight, where we are a Co-Title Sponsor. WaterNight is a fundraising event for waterschool.com, which help provide clean water for life to people in rural areas of Uganda and Kenya. We are humbled to be a part of such a thoughtful and worthwhile cause.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
