Each year, MarkMonitor hosts a number of focused events for our clients, and we are also regular participants at industry events such as ICANN and INTA meetings. 2017 has been no exception, with MarkMonitor domain management representatives traveling the globe throughout the year. Q4 of 2017 is shaping up to be our busiest time of year yet with over 25,000 miles traveled so far. Multiple events in London, several cities in the US, Japan, China and United Arab Emirates have kept us busy!
In early October, we hosted our 11th MarkMonitor Forum in San Francisco, California, where domain and brand protection professionals were able to gather and learn from one another. Every year we receive great feedback from the informative workshops and learning sessions organized for the event, which is held exclusively for MarkMonitor clients.
From San Francisco, we headed to Beijing, China where MarkMonitor representatives and special guest speakers presented at our Beijing Domain Seminar. Under the theme of "sharing, exploration and collaboration", the seminar focused on domain management strategies, the construction and protection of domain names, and the dynamics of domain names in China.
At the end of October, MarkMonitor experts from our Boise, San Francisco and Washington DC offices headed more than 7000 miles to ICANN60 in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates. MarkMonitor was able to advocate on behalf of our client’s intellectual property rights as well as encourage policies that enhance consumer trust and safety on the Internet. We participated in ICANN’s policy development process working groups and constituency meetings, and had several meetings with vendors, representatives from government, law enforcement and other strategic partners.
We kicked off November with our Tokyo Domain Seminar, held on November 2nd in Tokyo, Japan. Both clients and prospects were in attendance and heard from industry insiders and MarkMonitor experts as they shared their experiences, strategies and best practices.
Our 7th Annual Domain Seminar in London took place on November 28th in Soho, London. The theme for this year’s seminar was “Managing a global domain portfolio in today’s digital world – what you need to know”. MarkMonitor clients were able to network with one another, hear about new approaches to online brand protection, learn the latest on SSL Certificates, and participate in domain workshops.
MarkMonitor looks forward to hosting several events throughout 2018 where you can learn about proven best practices, get the latest industry updates, and network to share experiences and expertise. For more information on MarkMonitor events, check out the events section on our website located here.
