    Really annoying DomainX SPAM messages to my emails - from .IN Who Is database I am sure - despite having registered for the conference will pass on attending it. Good Luck.

    PS: Why did both event organizers pick Hyderabad instead of Bl'ore, Mumbai or Delhi?

    toexchange, we apologize for the multiple email invitations that may have been sent out to your email address, however, please be assured that we do not have adequate time and resources to send out spam to 17 lac .in registrants. Also, if you have received multiple invitations, I believe your email address is on our list of preferred members within the domain name community. Please hit "unsubscribed" link, and you would not receive any further invitations from our logistics team.

    Regarding Hyderabad as Conference location, I would not be able to comment about anyone else, however we were the first to announce about International Domain Name Conference & location in India (Refer: DNJournal)

    Everyone, please do not forget to say "Hello" to me or other organizers at the event.

    As much as I'd like to attend and feel it would be very useful, the problem is dedicating an entire week to an 8 hour conference....For domainers living in India, this is a no-brainer - there is NO REASON not to attend!

    By the time I travel to India from California, and get over the jetlag, it'll be time to come back....

    How about making the next one a 2 or 3 day event for those of us traveling around the globe - gives us a chance to settle in and be alert at 8am ready for business.

    Looking forward to the live stream though!

    After talking to my resources in IN REGISTRY came to know they are not supporting and are not aware about anything.Their logo is kept falsely. I also came to hyderabad under same impressions but I feel cheated because :

    1 - Pre party cancelled
    2 - 50% of speakers are not coming
    3 - I was told that IN REGISTRY and father of Indian domain industry Mr. Sanjiv Goyal is also attending but when I talked to him he said he is not supporting or coming either.

    Rest Not sure how are things happening ?

    Thank you everyone for participating, and a turn out of over 350+ guests who stayed till 6pm to engage with speakers at the DOMAINX 2014 Conference.

    No pre-party was canceled, however it was an exclusive pre-dinner with honorable dignitaries and speakers arranged (photos will follow).

    Also, whoever is saying .In Registry wasnt supporting/sponsoring DOMAINX, is spreading FALSE rumors.

    You all will soon be able to read about event and see photos/videos in next few days as we procure them from our event organizing agencies.

    thank you once again for your support!!!
