Poll : Are you going to attend the #domainer meetup in #Asheville, NC?

Rick Schwartz’s return as a domain conference organizer is official.

The TRAFFIC conference founder ran the show for a decade before – temporarily – retiring in person. TRAFFIC ended in 2014.

Now, the Domain King is openly rolling out a new domainer meetup in the formerly sleepy town of Asheville, North Carolina. The city has witnessed great growth during the past decade, expanding its reach beyond hipsters, beer enthusiasts and lovebirds looking for a nest in the Appalachian mountains.

The location is a bit unconventional, off the busy airports and in a state famous for its arts and crafts. Domain investors already living in North Carolina would probably go for Charlotte or Raleigh, Greensboro or Wilmington.

The extended city of Asheville hosts the biggest privately owned real estate in the US, the Biltmore. With an area of 175,856 square feet, the Biltmore is a great tourist attraction as well.

The real question is, will the Asheville domainer meetup provide enough non-tourist substance to be seen as a sustainable destination for domain investors?

Rick Schwartz’s experience in the field is well-documented, and he has a vision going back at least two decades.

    Looks like it will be more elite than MERGE!

  2. ‘”The destination is off the beaten path”

    That is by design. That is the qualifier to keep out the noise and have a group of like-minded professional domain investors meetup and discuss real business. You have to go out of your way and out of your comfort zone and have skin in the game. I have a podcast that I recorded yesterday and coming out next week, and I will explain fully.

    Rick – That’s understandable, so from my understanding you are looking for a limited number of attendees? Miss the TRAFFIC days. 🙁

  4. I am not limiting anything at this time.
    It will be self-limiting by the size of space and hotel availability in Asheville during the biggest week of the year.
    It started with 6 people. Up to 30 now. 50-100 is the sweet spot. But the rooms I contracted for can hold over 200 just in case this event blossoms more than expected. Domainers are hungry for this as they should be.
