Demand Media CEO – Keynoting at HostingCon

by Adam Strong in Categories: Events, ISPs, Registrars

Richard Rosenblatt, CEO of Demand Media will be keynoting the upcoming HostingCon, July 23rd in Chicago, IL. Demand Media is parent company behind at least 3 domain related ventures, enom.com, Hot Keys and the .TV project. Rosenblatt will be speaking about “What Lies Ahead for Hosting”.

If you are in the area it might not be a bad event to attend. The price is fairly inexpensive at around $400 for full conference pass. Compared to domain related shows this is a super bargain. Rosenblatt seems like a much more appropriate keynote as well. The topics covered in the rest of the show might be outside of the realm of what a domainer wants to know about. However, I’ve been to HostingCon before and found it to be a good place to learn about and guage the web service industry.

DomainSponsor, Sedo and Tucows are already on the exhibitor list and I know the guys from enom.com are planning on attending. The last HostingCon I went to in 2005 had no parking/ppc companies and only 1 domain company that I can recall meeting at the exhibtor booths, so this maybe a sign of the times as the hosting and ISP companies start making more strategic partnerships with parking providers and domain registrar companies.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for mentioning HostingCon! In addition to Richard’s keynote, Jothan from Domain Sponsors, Tim from Sedo and Tom from BuyDomains will be doing a 2 hour workshop on domain monetization and valuation. The ModernBill folks, who’ve just launched DNZoom, will be there as well. Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago!

Thanks for pointing that out Isabel. Admittedly, I should have read the entire schedule. Looks like the domain comapnies are invading the Hosting world now even more than just being exhibitors. That’s an interesting development as all these internet busines sectors begin to converge and cross-pollinate.

PS Just realized your involvement with hostingcon. Look forward to meeting you

Anyone who wants to attend can use the coupon code domainnamenews to get a discount off registration but they should do so before this Friday, the 29th, since pricing goes up after that.
