DomainIndex Is Holding Virtual WebFair 2014, the 1st Virtual Show of Its Kind & Expect 5K People

Virtual WebFair 2014 is the first conference of its kind for the domain, hosting, and SEO industries which offers participation in an event without the delegates or exhibitors having to leave their home or office.

The concept is the brainchild of Michael Marcovici of Domainindex.com, who is one of the main sponsors and organizers of the happening.

The virtual event takes place on a sophisticated 3D platform provided by Hyperfair.com and expects 5,000 plus visitors with about a hundred of exhibitors and booths with a wide range of products and services on show.

“The problem with events like these is that for some people it means having to fly halfway around the world; and while it might be nice to go to Rio or LA, how much scarce, precious time does it take up and how much does it cost businesses?”

“We thought how much easier it would be if we could bring the event to the attendee rather than the other way around. Given the nature of the business we are in, we should be looking for innovative, technological solutions to such problems; so we came up with the idea of the virtual show.”

Organizers are now planning for an event that attracts 5,000 plus visitors with about a hundred of exhibitors and booths with a wide range of products and services on show.

Attendees are invited to construct their personal avatar reflecting their own preferences in personality, dress, and orientation and this carries around their personal information and a virtual bag for storing information, contacts, and other material gathered on the virtual journey.

“They can interact with anyone they meet, exhibitor, or delegate, simply by clicking on their name, providing the contact is accepted, of course,” Marcovici continues. “Then they can chat online or Skype call for a more extended, personal discussion. You can engage as few or as many people as you like as you pass through the virtual hall. It is just like a real-world event only in cyberspace.”

The event takes place on a sophisticated 3D platform provided by Hyperfair.com that replicates the look and feel of an exhibition venue complete with booths, décor, equipment — even plants and trees — so the environment is relaxed, friendly, and engaging to the virtual visitor.

A map locates the user in the virtual venue and visitors have the option of navigating around the hall or jumping directly to places that interest them.

Videos and presentations are accessible through the virtual port and feedback facilities are available so users can let exhibitors and presenters know what they thought.

The immersive experience lasts for the whole day on July 24th, 2014.

The current admission price is $19 as a contribution to the waterschool.com but organizers are looking at reducing this even further to encourage the widest participation possible.

TRAFFIC Vegas Offers 3 Nights At Hotel & Passes To Conference At $1,595 Ends April 4th

The organizers of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference is offering a special sign up bonus which includes 2 nights at the Bellagio for $1495 or 3 nights for $1595 for its conference in Las Vegas which is running from May 28th – June 1st.

Here is the email we received:

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. has offered some of the lowest prices we have ever had but that is about to end. Right now when you sign up for T.R.A.F.F.I.C. it includes 2 nights at the Bellagio for $1495 or 3 nights for $1595.

An incredible deal at a 5 star hotel.

“Starting Friday April 4th, (a week from this Friday) the hotel part of the admission is going bye bye.

The price will be $1595 and it will no longer include the hotel rooms at the Bellagio.

That was a VERY special offering and it is now ending.

We won’t be doing that at the Fountainbleu either.

We did it to guarantee we would sell our entire room block and so mission accomplished. But we want to give you plenty of notice so there are no surprises. After you Buy your ticket you will want to register for your hotel rooms. A credit for each night will appear on your room bill.

This show that starts on May 28th with Cabanas opened on the 27th will be larger and more important than last year. With so much hype out there it is hard to get straight talk anywhere from anyone. Many are fully invested and objectivity is a hard commodity to find in our small world.

But there is always T.R.A.F.F.I.C.  The place that stands for B.U.S.I.N.E.S.S. in the domain industry. We don’t need to re-invent ourselves. What we offer is unique and those that recognize that keep coming back. It’s that simple. We keep the noise out and the business in. T.R.A.F.F.I.C. MEANS B.U.S.I.N.E.S.S.

That simple recipe that has served us for a decade. Our only agenda is your business and how can T.R.A.F.F.I.C. help you make more money. And those on stage are there to help you and not simply to sell you something. They are contributors to YOUR success. They get rewarded for helping our attendees. That is why self promotion at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. is limited and not encouraged.  The best way to do business these days is to have credibility. Once you lose that, game over.

We focus on domain investment and the future. We are a domain name investment show.

We don’t focus on registries or registrars but they are always welcome to participate and provide you valuable information for your business.

Their job is to focus on us, serve us and keep us in the loop.

Understand their role and respect the fact that the choices are overwhelming and there has to be a reason to do business.

A vision.

I have always been clear that if we take you away from your families it won’t be to waste your time.

You can party at home with your friends. Come to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. to focus on your futures and keep up to date with real events and trends.

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. welcomes all gTLD companies to come and make their case why YOU should invest with THEM. They will have stage time to explain their visions and talk intelligently to the #1 Domain investor group in the world. Those without answers need not apply. We don’t play games and we don’t play favorites. We open it up to all.

I know you are all hyped out, so I won’t add to it.

That’s my case for T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas.

I am now starting on the agenda and that will be published in the weeks ahead. I’ll keep you up to date when I can. Check the schedule often starting in May as it will be changed and added to daily as we ramp up.

The bottom line is that domain names are taking center stage and are going to be part of the culture in a way we have never seen nor dreamed of. The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. show has been there from day one. There was a mission. Take domains names from obscurity and make them the center of the universe. And T.R.A.F.F.I.C. .continues to lead the way with a lot of help from a lot of friends
