As an asset class, domain names are clearly growing in value, and their position in the online marketing function deserves the attention and discussion we'll give them in Santa Monica. If you make it to only one domain name industry event in 2010, this one should be it.
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) July 20, 2009
DomainSponsor®, the domain name monetization division of Oversee.net®, announced today DOMAINFest Global, the domain name industry's largest and most important event, will be held at the luxurious Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica, Calif.
To enhance the intimacy and networking at DOMAINfest Global, the entire hotel property has been reserved exclusively for this conference, which takes place January 26-28, 2010.
Online registration will open August 15 with an Early Bird discounted registration rate of $895 available through September 30. The registration rate increases to $1,095 on October 1.
The 2010 conference will focus on the importance of domain names in online marketing, with additional focus on how to use domain names to get the most out of the pending economic recovery. The conference theme and specific agenda session topics will be announced in the coming weeks.
The event also will feature two live Moniker ® domain name auctions, powered by SnapNames Live™ technology.
Building on the trend initiated with DOMAINfest Global 2008, guests will include a growing number of professionals from outside of the domain industry. Guests will include brand executives, advertising and affiliate network suppliers, senior commercial bankers, private equity representatives, venture capitalists, trademark and legal counselors, website developers, advertising experts, SEO/SEM specialists, and others. The top domain industry publishers, parking companies, registrars, aftermarket resellers, hosting companies, and others will also be in attendance.
"Our industry is ready for new growth as the global recession begins to subside," said Oversee.net President Jeff Kupietzky. "As an asset class, domain names are clearly growing in value, and their position in the online marketing function deserves the attention and discussion we'll give them in Santa Monica. If you make it to only one domain name industry event in 2010, this one should be it."
