Two domain name conferences in China this summer

Events in Hangzhou and Wuzhen in June and July.

There will be at least two domain name conferences in China this summer.

First up is the 2016 Global Domains Industry Summit, co-organized by Verisign, and, and managed by Jinyuming. This conference will be held in Hangzhou, China, June 3-6.

The next month, will host the World Domain Conference from July 6-9 in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province. This conference used to be called Traffic China, but it has no relationship to Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu’s old show.

Somewhat humorously, both conferences list a bunch of well-known people with their pictures, but label them as merely invited, not confirmed.

For example, shows Bob Parsons, erroneously listed as CEO of GoDaddy. It also shows Frank Schilling, hailing from…England?

These conferences seem like good opportunities to meet face-to-face with Chinese domain name investors and better understand the Chinese domain name market.
