My biggest takeaway from NamesCon Online is it needs to be permanent. In April I wrote on TheDomains, is the future of NamesCon virtual? Well it’s certainly part of the future in my opinion.
NamesCon Online has been great in my opinion, to be able to just move in and out of meetings, to the social wall, to people’s private messages has been great.
GoDaddy has really done a great job. The UI and UX are fantastic and it’s the best virtual platform I have been on. I expected this event to be ehh, ok. It has been really great.
There are so many people there that would never be traveling to Austin or anywhere in North America.
Whether it be cost, apprehension to travel, fear of flying or not being able to be away from family and work, this virtual conference just checks all the boxes.
If the juice is worth the squeeze at $59 for GoDaddy, they need to make this an annual event. I also think you will see more companies willing to advertise at future virtual events.
Of course there will still be an appetite for a live event in a post Covid world, as there should be. But this event needs to be on the calendar once a year in my opinion.
Thank you to the whole team behind NamesCon Online.
