NamesCon is happy to announce the inclusion of a live domain name auction to be held in Las Vegas at NamesCon 2016, in partnership with RightOfTheDot and NameJet.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (PRWEB) DECEMBER 02, 2015
NamesCon is partnering with RightofTheDot and NameJet for the 2016 live domain auction on Monday, January 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada during the NamesCon conference at the Tropicana Hotel and Convention Centre.
RightOfTheDot is a leading Internet domain name sales, brokerage, auction, consulting and advisement firm. Combined with NameJet’s premier aftermarket domain name auction platform and the heavily attended NamesCon conference, this collaboration will produce one of the most exciting domain events of the year. NamesCon 2016 begins with an intensive one-day networking and exhibition event called Network Lane, continuing with the record-setting domain auction, WaterNight charity event, and three days of sessions, keynotes and networking.
“Live auctions add a human element to what is otherwise just an online marketplace,” says NamesCon co-founder Richard Lau. “The energy and excitement in the room is something you won’t find anywhere else – this is definitely a must-see event.”
The auctions will feature some of the best .com and new gTLD names available anywhere including NIGHT.CLUB, DEGREES.COM, LODGES.COM, REAL.PROPERTY, WEB.HOSTING, 88.XYZ, WEDDING.GIFT, AT.COM, GENETICS.COM, and many more. Attendees can expect upwards of 100 names to be offered at the live auction, with over 400 names available in total – many priced at no and/or low reserve. Name submissions for the auctions closed this week, and pre-bidding is now live on the NameJet website. A NameJet account is required to participate in the online and live auctions.
RightOfTheDot will conduct the live auction on January 11, 2016 at 2:00 PM Pacific Time at the NamesCon conference at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Following the live auction, the online auction will be extended on NameJet.com for an additional 10 days. This extended auction will include the domains names not selected for live auction and for any domains in the live auction that do not hit reserve, and will close completely on January 21, 2016.
“We are excited to be working with Right Of The Dot and NamesCon in this exclusive auction event,” said Scott Pruitt, Marketing Director, NameJet. “Right Of The Dot and NamesCon are leaders in the domain space, and with NameJet’s strong position in the domain aftermarket we are looking forward to seeing some great results.”
“NameJet and RightOfTheDot make the perfect combination for this premier event,” said Monte Cahn, President / Director of Right Of The Dot, LLC. “Our market leading positions and expertise in domain sales, auctions, and brokerage in new and existing Top Level Domains will make for the most successful NamesCon auction yet!”
