Who We Are
Since its founding in 2013, NamesCon’s flagship event in Las Vegas has grown into the largest and most anticipated domain industry event of the year. With the explosive growth of new TLDs and rapid expansion of internet connectivity and digital asset classes worldwide, the domain industry promises to remain one of the most energized and important markets in technology.
NamesCon Online draws over 1,000 registrations for its all-digital editions during the COVID-19 pandemic as the event series grows and evolves with the domain industry—and the wider world in which we all coexist.
NamesCon was acquired by WHD Event GmbH, which also owns and produces CloudFest (the world’s top internet infrastructure industry gathering), in 2021. This unlocks the synergies between the domain, hosting, and cloud industries. The combined team now jointly produces more than ten industry events internationally each year, from blockbuster global shows to highly focused regional events and invite-only CXO retreats. These include NamesCon Europe—formerly Domaining Europe, an intimate gathering of domain-related professionals—and DOMAINfest, a globe-trotting series of events that began in 2012.
The domaining world doesn’t sit still, so neither do we!
While the global pandemic has travel plans in flux, we’re confident we can deliver top-notch experiences for the domain industry while keeping everyone safe.
