What it is: This tutorial session will bring together some leaders in the domain aftermarket to discuss industry trends and will highlight some of the domain name sales that occurred in 2006 in a variety of TLDs, and will cover domain name appraisal, auction, peer sales, and more.
Why it's important: The domain market has evolved quite a lot in recent years, and the demand is enormous and still growing for domains in the aftermarket. The secondary market is rapidly becoming the primary marketplace for domain names, and is a large driving force in the domain industry. Much of the development in new business models in domain monetization are driven by activity in this market.
Who should attend: Anyone interested in a better understanding of this fast-growing aspect of the domain name marketplace.
