Boston, February 2, 2017 - Sedo has been selected as the official partner for Registries by WorldHostingDays 2017 (WHD), the international series of conferences for the Hosting and Cloud industry. As the world’s largest place to buy, park and sell domains, Sedo’s marketing services supports TLDs from all of the registries in establishing and creating awareness for their premium domains. WorldHostingDays conferences are an ideal platform for this with more than 6,500 attendees from the Hosting and Registrar arena all in one spot. Partnering registries will have a space at the Sedo booth with exposure to relevant industry giants like 1&1, EIG, web.com and many more providing a unique opportunity not typical of their everyday business dealings.
This partnership kicks off with WHD.global, the opening festival-like event in Rust, Germany March 27-31, 2017, followed by WHD India in Mumbai, WHD China and WHD USA in Las Vegas.
“We are pleased to have Sedo as the official partner for registries at WHD. With their booth presence at WHD.global they’ll promote the growing domain business. As a neutral marketplace dealing with domains from all of the registries worldwide, Sedo has a vast network within the domain industry, in addition to valuable knowhow and expertise in both event promotions and marketing. With this combination, registries can have a presence at the WHD conferences simply by partnering with Sedo at their booth,” says Soeren von Varchmin, CEO of WorldHostingDays.
Sedo’s Premium Registry Partners such as .Club Domains LLC (.club), Radix and GMO Registry (.shop) just to name a few have benefitted from using Sedo’s event and sponsoring packages and will rely on them again for WHD in 2017. “While we are meeting with many registrars and partners to explore potential business opportunities, our presence in the Sedo booth will market .CLUB directly to conference participants. We have regularly enlisted this strategy with Sedo, and their marketing resources and sales power have been very effective to promote our extension. Our collaboration has really paid off during other conferences such as dmexco, Europe’s largest digital marketing conference as well as at SXSW, and many other events”, adds Jeff Sass, CMO of .Club Domains, LLC.
In the last few years, Sedo has centered its focus on global event promotions both inside and outside of the domain industry with planning already in the works for more than 25 conferences this year including the large scale internationally-recognized dmexco 2017. Sedo will continue to hit the event circuit partnering with Registries to educate the masses about the value of domains and the ever-changing internet.
