“I have always believed that the Domain Industry is the new frontier of the internet, and I still do,” said Richard Lau, Co-founder of NamesCon. “NamesCon is the leading domain conference and needs to grow with the continuing expansion of the internet community. No one does a better job executing international internet events than WorldHostingDays, and I know that they are the perfect partner to help us grow on a global scale.”
