Domain Conferences

Domain conferences are the place to be to establish contacts with other domainers. Pioneer of all conferences was the Traffic conference at the Marriott Delray Beach in 2004. Nowadays conferences or more informal meetings are held throughout the world, although the US is still the main country for these events. Not all conferences are open to the public, some are by invitation only. Some of these conferences are intended for more experienced domainers while others also cover the basics. It is advisable to check out the agenda of the meeting you want to attend to see if it is for you. Soon you will discover that these meetings are rather a place to network than to gather too many new insights from the discussion panels, of course if you are new to the business you’ll be overwhelmed with new information.

There are a couple of established domain conferences around the globe that have regular meetings
