I have heard from a couple of people scheduled to speak at the Dot-Nxt Conference scheduled for August 29th-31st that the conference has been cancelled.
The conference was originally scheduled for June right before the Prague ICANN meeting but was postponed to delays with the roll out of the new gTLD program until next week.
We have now gotten confirmation that the conference was cancelled.
Monte and I were asked to speak at this conference but passed.
Having chatted with a number of applicants, everyone is on hold especially in light of ICANN’s recent announcement that no results of the processing of new gTLD applications would be released until mid 2013.
We also spoke at both the previous dot-nxt conferences in San Fransisco and attendance of end users at the second conference was quite disappointing.
