The whole of last week feels like a blur because we really can’t seem to figure where did the CloudFest days go! Being our most favourite conference in the entire year, we expected our time in Rust to be nothing short of spectacular; and guess what, it far exceeded our expectations!
As is the case every year, this time too was all about meeting our partners and friends at our booth, conversing with experts from the Cloud and Hosting sphere, forging new friendships at networking parties, and also, booth hopping. But now that we’re back to our desks, we’d like to take a moment to thank you all for dropping by our booth.
To sum it all up, we are collating a list of the top 5 highlights that made CloudFest a wonderful conference for us:
It hasn’t even been a month since we got back from NamesCon 2018 and we’re back on the road already!
ICANN61 | San Juan (March 10 – 15)
The ICANN fraternity will be heading to San Juan, Puerto Rico for its 61st General Meeting, which is being hosted by NIC.PR. This 6-day meeting will be held at Centro de Convenciones de Puerto Rico between March 10 – 15, 2018. As is the case with all ICANN conferences, this one too, will be all about capacity building, increasing outreach, getting a deeper understanding of ICANN’s plans and policies, and most importantly, networking. The industry is brimming with several pressing issues at the moment and what’s keeping most of the businesses on their toes is the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance requirement. With the GDPR go-LIVE date drawing closer, it will be interesting to see how businesses from our industry are preparing to tackle this challenge and ICANN’s expectations from its Registrars.
It has only been 2 weeks since the new year began and we’re already on our toes, prepping for our first conference of the year. But are we complaining? No, we’re not! Because we’re starting the year with NamesCon 2018!
After Copenhagen and Johannesburg, the ICANN fraternity is all set for ICANN’s 60th Annual General Meeting, taking place in the capital city of the United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi. The meeting will commence on October 28, 2017, and will conclude on November 3, 2017, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
The primary focal point of all ICANN meetings is to showcase ICANN’s work, in terms of policy formation and revisions, and keep all the global internet players updated about the same. In addition to this, these annual meetings also provide a great platform to foster engagement between the ICANN board, key stakeholders and the members of the industry.
The WorldHostingDays fraternity is heading to Las Vegas for its 4th international conference of the year – WHD.usa 2017.
Having started out as a conference which laid heavy focus solely on the Web Hosting industry, WorldHostingDays has gradually evolved and grown into a forum that addresses the internet technology industry and culture at large.
Our industry has been stirred by a lot of technological developments in the last few years. DIY website builders is a shining example which belongs to this pool of developments. The need to have technical knowledge and coding abilities is no longer a prerequisite for building a website. Drag-and-drop website builder giants such as Weebly, Sitebuilder.com, Impress.ly, etc. are enabling the not-so-tech-savvy lot to build professional-looking, intelligent and responsive websites in a jiffy, by themselves.
