DomainSponsor,’s domain monetization business and organizing sponsor of DOMAINfest Amsterdam, today announced its speaker line up for DOMAINfest Amsterdam, a two-day regional seminar and networking event created specifically to respond to the needs of domainers operating in the European business environment. The event will be held May 16-17, 2007, at the Hilton Amsterdam Hotel and will feature the first ever DOMAINfest auction:

Dr. Liz Williams, Senior Policy Counselor, ICANN, will be the keynote speaker on May 16. Dr. Williams leads ICANN’s policy development activities related to the introduction of new top level domains and policies for contractual conditions.

“We are delighted to have Dr. Liz Williams speak. Our program features many great minds all adding to the stimulating sessions and intense networking that are part of this event,” said Ron Sheridan, Director of Business Development for DomainSponsor. “The support we have received from our European colleagues is exciting.”

The agenda, which can be found at, begins with a discussion of The Domain Aftermarket. Experts will share their unique perspectives on the forces at play in the European aftermarket. Hear about price stabilization versus further price acceleration in the value of dotcom and dotnet names. Nora Cotter (Sedo) and Richard Martin (NICIT) will participate.

Updates on TLD developments will be discussed by Pinky Brand (dotMobi), Klemens Pidner (, and Leona Chen (DotAsia) in a significant opportunity to learn about the continued pace of leadership and growth in this area. Hear more about what is considered one of the most interesting segments of the domain name industry.

Ask the Legal Experts features three legal powerhouses — Paul Keating (Renova Ltd.), Christian Kerschbaum, and John Berryhill — who will discuss everything domainers need to know about risk management: trademarks, typos, cybersquatting, and the latest in intellectual property rights. Attendees will also learn how to be smarter about selling domains to large corporations. Listen to a discussion of the risk in registering .de domains.
