Domaining Europe Becomes
NamesCon Europe

June 7-9, 2018 | Valencia, Spain

As Domaining Europe enters its 10th year, we are honored to work with founder Dietmar Stefitz to facilitate his retirement and to transform this iconic conference into NamesCon Europe. Dietmar will directly manage the 2018 event to ensure a smooth transition, then step into an advisory role as brand ambassador.

This is an event where top-level decision makers from the global domain industry come together to share new ideas. It enables the communication between registrars, registries and most importantly, registrants. The evolution of the global market and the addition of new top-level domains calls for continuous attention toward new marketing and monetization strategies. 

This year we take you to Valencia, where the Turia River meets the Mediterranean Sea. Known as Spain's city of the arts and sciences, Valencia hits all the marks with beaches, city and sunshine.
