Just a little over a week ago RickLatona.com announced he was canceling the TRAFFIC Hong Kong show due in large part to the number of domain shows this year:
“The simple fact of the matter is that we are in a cottage industry.”
“The domain world is small and it can’t sustain so many companies fighting over attendees. So, I’ll bow out.”
So its interesting that 2011 is already setting up as a busy conference schedule in the domain world.
The ICANN meeting is being held in San Francisco from March 14th-18th and TRAFFIC announced yesterday that they will be holding a “pre-ICANN show in San Francisco.
Since the ICANN meeting runs Monday-Friday, the TRAFFIC show would either have to be held on the weekend before or starting mid week, the week before, maybe as early as starting on March 8th.
So if your planning on attending all the events like I am, get your frequent flier miles warmed up. For those east coasters like myself the best piece of advice I can give you is get familiar with Virgin America, it will make your east/west coast travels a lot nicer.
