The Skinny on NamesCon 2016


Marksmen’s Cyntia King reports:

I left the frozen tundra of the Midwest and arrived in Sin City on Saturday headed for NamesCon 2016. What better place to rep Marksmen’s domain acquisition bona fides than the premier domain name industry conference? First things first… dinner with friends at Bacio Italian in the Tropicana, where NamesCon 2016 was hosted. Nothing like starting the conference with good food, good wine, and good friends.

The conference exhibition hall was a great place to see what’s new, play ping pong, and connect. I chatted with Tessa Holcomb, CEO of Igloo and a sponsor of the Women of Domaining Salon – a meet and greet with other women in the industry complete with bloody marys and mimosas.

It was great catching up with Jackson Elsegood, General Manager of Escrow dot com. Had an amazing dinner at Craftsteak with new owner of Freelancer dot com and crew, including CEO Matt Barrie and Deputy CFO Christopher Koch. These guys are the real “Thunder Down Under.” Can’t wait to see the upgrades and expanded services that new buyer Freelancer dot com has planned.

Then off to the Uniregistry party at Hakksan. One word: amazing! Can you party like Frank? Marksmen can hang!

And nothing like drinks at the Paris Resort’s Eiffel Tower with our partners from Neustar to top off the trip. Prime real estate to wind down and watch the Bellagio light & water show! Then down to the strip to scour for some Indian cuisine. Result: the kind of amazing food & conversation you write home about with Microsoft friends at Tamba Restaurant.

Catch you later NamesCon. It was one heck of a ride!
