New TLDs + ‘Domainers’ : The Opportunities

There is a strong inter-dependency between new gTLDs and the Domain Developer / Investor Communty. The discussion will surround attraction and benefit of new gTLDs and the ‘domainer’ audience as a registry?

New gTLDs have the opportunity to thrive within the robust domain developer and investor audience, but there are subtleties that can either win or lose a very important demographic. Hear from our panel of domain investors on the ways new gTLDs can benefit, and missteps to avoid.

There are many who believe user behavior is already pretty well entrenched, it will be interesting to hear opinions of those who feel this can be changed, and how they will go about doing it.

Frank Schilling will give the keynote speech starting at 4:50 p.m.

Day one looks to be a busy day for those interested in the new gtlds and Dot Whatever will be there to cover it.
