Bye-bye, Las Vegas : #NamesCon Global 2020 moves to a sandy beach somewhere

NamesCon 2019 will be the final one at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, and the domain conference’s organizers are actively seeking a new venue for 2020.

Facing extreme attendance growth, NamesCon 2020 will be in a new location, yet to be finalized. That’s great news for many NamesCon regulars, that consider the current venue’s services to be lacking. Many domain investors attending NamesCon prefer to stay at other hotels, despite the inconvenience of that choice.

NamesCon did try to end its contract with the Tropicana for the 2019 event, but at such a short notice they were only able to find a venue 12 miles away from the Vegas strip. So while NamesCon Global 2019 will remain in Vegas, there’s a surprise move in 2020: away from Las Vegas, and to a coastal area.

The event’s organizers are looking for suggestions regarding the 2020 event:

…if you have any city/venue suggestions you’d like to throw in the hat for NamesCon Global 2020, send them our way! Here’s a hint to steer you in the right direction: we’re looking to be leaving Las Vegas, and we’d love to sink our feet into a sandy beach somewhere…

Will it be Florida, or California? 😀

    California, California, California!! Can’t beat the ‘great year round weather’ in sunny SoCal!!

  2. Aaron Strong says:

    Southern California!..Northern California just doesn’t compare. Free surfing lessons courtesy of me.😁

  3. Rob says:

    I agree with Kevin it should be held in Southern California! My particular favorite SoCal spot for NameCon Global 2020 would be San Diego!

  4. Eddie Sixto says:

    South Florida is where it’s always happening and the weather is awesome in January.

    Hopefully some Caribbean island.

    Keep it in Vegas, just a different hotel. No brainer if you ask me. Move it to a major resort/hotel such as the MGM.

    Not going to beat the price/convenience of Vegas.

  7. Matt says:

    The attendance is immediately going to fall by half or more by moving it out of Vegas. Mark my words on this one!

    I wonder why these new owners of Namescon even have such an idea. Where do they get these ideas from, honestly?

    Matt – Many of us are fed up with Vegas. TRAFFIC did just fine with being in Florida mostly. I would not mind NYC but it’d have to be around May.

    Thank you for the photograph of the lovely lady. I just hand regged myself!

    I would love Miami or SoCal myself, but there are not many that will be able to spend $500+/night on a hotel. I remember during the DomainFest days it was very difficult to find a hotel under $300-400/night in the vicinity.

    TRAFFIC was great in Miami but again, what % of people were able to afford the Fountainebleau?

    Both amazing choices. Would love it. But still think crowd size will drop immediately.

    Matt – Congratulations, you left comment # 15,000 😀

    TRAFFIC hotel rates were not that expensive. I can’t recall the exact rate per night, but it was under $300 in 2012. On the other hand, TRAFFIC 2010 in Vegas was the cheapest I’ve ever paid for a conference hotel venue, I think $75 using the group code.

  12. Matt says:

    Woohoo! 🙂 What’s my prize?

    Wellthat must’ve been a while because I never even remember TRAFFIC being in Vegas! Wow.
