DomainSponsor to Host Webfest Global 2013 Conference, Opens Registration

Add Your Comments’s domain monetization business, DomainSponsor, announced on Friday it has begun online registration for its upcoming Webfest Global 2013 conference in Santa Monica, California.

The annual conference serves as a venue for domain industry participants and online marketing professionals to educate themselves about the industry, network and do business.

Held February 5 through 7, 2013 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel, the conference will feature content and speakers that offer insights, advice and the latest best practices in web and mobile user acquisition, conversion and monetization, and updates on how regulatory and ICANN policies influence domain name owners and brand marketers around the world.

The conference’s agenda can currently be viewed on the Webfest Global 2013 conference website, although none of the speakers have been officially revealed.

“This marks our seventh annual global conference,” said CEO Debra Domeyer. “Over the last few years, we have received very positive feedback from attendees about how our DOMAINfest agenda has evolved. So we’re very excited about continuing our tradition of providing content and speakers that align with the ever-broadening interests of our conference audience. Of course, we’re also excited to be providing an atmosphere and experience that facilitates networking and deal-making.”

The conference organizers are now offering an early bird discounted registration fee of $1,095, which includes a three-day pass to attend all sessions, the exhibit hall, daily breakfasts, daily lunches, and all official dinner networking parties, as well as a farewell breakfast on February 8th.

On February 6th from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., Moniker|SnapNames will host a live, premium domain name auction at the conference.

The auction will be preceded by an extended online domain auction on February 5th, which will run through 3:15 p.m. on March 8th.

Interested participants can learn how to submit domains for consideration on the conference website. The submission deadline is December 14, 2012.

The organizers have booked the entire Fairmont Miramar Hotel for the conference in order to provide attendees, enabling attendees to take advantage of discounted hotel room rates.

There is a variety of sponsor and exhibitor opportunities, along with pricing, on the conference website.

DomainSponsor held its inaugural Webfest Global conference, previously named DOMAINfest, in 2006.
