As any seasoned domain industry veteran knows, we’re entering conference season once again. That’s why the .blog team will be dividing and conquering in the next two weeks to attend both CloudFest in Rust, Germany and ICANN61 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Paolo Belcastro, the Knock Knock WHOIS There team lead, and Don Ruiz, our Head of Business Development, will be heading to Rust to connect with our registrar partners and promote our new marketing programs to both current, and new, participants. We appreciate opportunities like CloudFest to connect with our registrar channel in person, where we can catch up on everyone’s latest projects, collaborate, and enjoy the exciting atmosphere brainstorming at a conference like CloudFest can bring.
Erica Varlese, our policy and compliance officer, will instead be heading to San Juan, Puerto Rico to attend ICANN’s first public meeting of the year. We’ve attended each meeting since ICANN57 in Hyderabad, India and appreciate the value these conferences bring for staying up-to-date and participating in policy discussions within the ICANN community. Like many others, we’re very eager to see what comes of the conversations around the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) during this first ICANN conference of the year.
While we make our way around the globe to connect with other registries, registrars, and end users, we look forward to seeing what projects and policies we build from these discussions. As always, if you’ll be in attendance as well, drop us a note or come find us if you’d like to meet up!
