    This new thread has been created to avoid confusion due to the recent 2 major changes:
    1. The dates are: 22-23 August
    2. Tickets are FREE
    ---

    For the 1st time viewers:

    The mission is to start an annual networking event for the Domain Name Market professionals and companies in London, UK (with a population of 67.2 million people, UK is the largest English-speaking country in Europe).

    I have signed an agreement with a great London restaurant YUM-SA and it will be converted into a 2-day networking environment. Also, there will be free food and basic drinks for domainers to network.

    The venue place has the capacity of 100 people indoors and it also has 2 outdoor spaces on both sides of the building (1 for 60 people, and another for 50 people), and can be seen here: https://summit.london/about-venue-place/

    In total there are 12 exhibiting spaces:

    This May, you can get discounted prices on the exhibiting stands. More at: https://summit.london

    Part payments are available and most welcome.

    ---

    We don't plan to do workshops this year.

    The attendee tickets are Free of charge and I plan to have at least 500 people attending from all around the world.

    Capacity: indoors 100 people / 2 outdoor spaces of 50-60 people/each.

    Important: 10 Free Tickets are available each day (released in the morning). Please return tomorrow if these are sold out today.

    Domain name Summit - London, UK
    22-23 August 2022
    https://summit.london/
    DAY 1 tickets (FREE): https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/268093644307/
    DAY 2 tickets (FREE): https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/331856530817/

    UK domainers are one of the eldest, financially stable and largest established domainer communities in the world. This will be an annual event and I plan to grow it to the #1 Independent English-speaking Domain event in Europe.

    Please let me know in the comments if you need any other information.

    Best wishes,
    Helmuts

    p.s. more information will follow in the comments. tx

    I admire the way you’ve pivoted here, Helmuts and I wish you the best of luck delivering a successful exhibition.

    It feels like a good initiative and I’m a little surprised with the general lack of response in the threads.

    Stay patient, and I’m sure this could grow into a really strong addition within the industry.

    I've suggested this to Nominet's membership engagement team and was told that they are considering attending. Should be a good opportunity for IRL engagement for Nominet members and staff, the first for a few years

    :) yes, already got an offer from the seller, and a very polite and friendly one :)

    This year the brand will be "London Domain Summit" > next year I might improve the brand.. Well, a domainer took a chance, why not :)

    I have tried reaching out to Nominet several times - they don't come out from the shadow :D :D

    .. will not give up ;) .. I am sure, there will be somebody from Nominet, probably using a free ticket. No problem at all :)

    .. the situation is the same with GoDaddy and many other huge players in our niche.. they are waiting. Hopefully they understand what they are doing and what are they missing out :D

    Great day all!! .. it is fantastic seeing registrations coming through little by little every day now.

    Best wishes, Helmuts!!

    I've signed up to attend. Hope to see some familiar faces after such a long time! I think Nominet's Lord's Cricket event was the last time I was sociable :D

    Sounds awesome! I met Nominet 2 days ago in Hague (ICANN 74) - maybe they will join us as well :) .. waiting for a confirmation.

    Best wishes,

    Yes well done Helmuts for putting your time and effort in, I really hope it pays off for you.

    Unfortunately wild horses couldn't drag me to London.

    News: We will have a Domains Talk Room (sponsored by IT.COM) & every exhibitor can apply for their speaking slots (Q&A sessions, presentations, workshops).

    And yes, now I can confirm that there will be livestreams - and what streams these will be! Prepare your VR goggles ;)

    Registration is still free: https://londonsummit.eventbrite.com/

    Have the most productive Monday!

    Helmuts

    p.s. It is nice to see that the space is slowly getting filled up :)
    p.p.s. sorry, can't disclose the Names behind the reserved spaces till confirmed.
