Six things to do at NamesCon one last time

At the end of the month, NamesCon Global will take place for the sixth and last time in the gambling metropolis of Las Vegas. Once more, the domain conference will have some highlights to offer attendees from January 27 - January 30.


Last year, NamesCon global welcomed 1,946 attendees. In 2019, the organizers want to beat the previous year and can already say that representatives from more than 200 different domain companies will be on site.

According to the company, NamesCon global is the largest annual conference of the domain industry. In 2019 it will take place in Vegas for the last time. We have summarized all important information for you.

The NamesCon is the first conference of the year, setting the trend for the entire industry. So it is the perfect opportunity to kick-off the year with customers, colleagues and contacts of the domain scene.

Among others, there will be carefully selected keynotes and sessions on domain monetization and brand TLDs. Participants will also learn what to expect from the domain market in 2019. Don’t miss out on these highlights:

  1. Networking on Saturday
    "But the NamesCon doesn't start until Sunday, right?" Well, that is not completely wrong - at InterNetX and Sedo, however, the event starts with a pre-opening the day before, giving everyone who is already on site on Saturday the opportunity to network and ease into the Vegas atmosphere. If you want to participate at the "1st Unofficial NamesCon Opening", we look forward to your inquiry. Simply send an email to eventsnoSpam@internetx.com.

  2. Highlight domain auction
    The annual highlight at NamesCon global is the domain auction. This year it will take place on Monday, January 28, 2019, at 4:15 pm. Not only can domains be purchased by auction, but attendees can also put up their domains for bidding.

  3. Domain Management is dead ...
    ... long live the Platform Revolution. That's the motto under which our Business Innovation Evangelist, Marco Revesz, is going to present our revolutionary domain management platform on Sunday, January 27, at 3 PM in the Global Keynote Hall.

  4. Group photo
    When and where the legendary group photo will be taken this year is not yet known, but that it will take place is a certainty. And it's one thing you definitely have to have witnessed at the NameCon’s final showing in Las Vegas.

  5. Download the app
    In preparation for the fair, the NamesCon Event App is a must-have. With the app you can already interact with other participants before the start of the event and communicate with exhibitors and discover all that Las Vegas has to offer. Among other things, you can create your own event calendar for the fair, participate in online discussions and follow all events in real time. The App is available for iOS and Android devices. An easy way to stay up-to-date and connected at the NamesCon.

    The NamesCon app is available for download here: namescon.tech

  6. Visit our booth and build your own AutoDNS
    At InterNetX you can take the booth apart - already before the end of the fair! Our booth is made of Lego bricks and can constantly be reinvented - just like our new AutoDNS. In the future the domain management platform will be white-labeled in all versions and can be tailored to your individual needs.


The sixth time will also mark the last time of "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas". It's not yet known how and where NamesCon global will continue. Soeren of Varchmin, CEO of NamesCon, has already announced that the format will change from scratch in 2020. In his opinion, the NamesCon team in Vegas did everything that was possible, but now it's time for something new. In recent years, the organizers have already tried different things: Events in Asia, especially India and China, as well as in Europe with the Domaining Europe and NamesCon Europe. So it will be interesting to see how NamesCon global will continue next year.
