NamesCon Joins Black Friday Frenzy With 25% Discount on Passes

Americans in particular get a little excited about Black Friday sales to coincide with Thanksgiving and Christmas but a month away. And NamesCon is no different. They’re offering 25% off the current price for all passes bought between Friday 23 and Monday 26 November.

The discount is only available by following this link:
eventbrite.com/e/namescon-global-2019-tickets-42541784623?discount=FridayMonday

Currently standard passes are available for $399, while VIP passes cost $599, and this ends on 30 November. So 25% makes for a handy discount – almost $100 on the standard pass and $150 on VIP passes.

Standard passes will cost $699 from 1 December to 26 January and $999 at the door, while VIP passes will cost $899 from 1 December to 26 January and then $1,349 at the door, all plus booking fees.

NamesCon is holding their flagship event at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas from 27 to 30 January 2019, and it has, so NamesCon claims, grown to be the largest and most anticipated domain industry event of the year. There’s a focus on quality networking and compelling content.

It’s expected that well over 1,000 people will attend, and their 2017 conference drew nearly 1,300 delegates from around the world. Attendees at NamesCon come from all aspects of the domain industry, from registrars, registries, web hosting companies, attorneys, brand managers, domain name investors, start-ups, affiliate marketing companies, parking companies, financial service providers, individual end-users, and everyone else in between!

NamesCon was acquired by WorldHostingDays in 2016 so that both organisations could benefit from the synergies between the domain, hosting and cloud industries. Their teams now jointly produce more than 10 industry events internationally each year, from blockbuster global shows to highly focused regional events and invite-only CXO retreats.
