With over 150 participants each year, NddCamp is the leading domain name event in France and one of the most important in Europe.
NDDCamp is an event that bring together registrars, lawyers, domain names investors, SEO consultants and more generally professionals dealing with domain names. Its purpose is to promote the domain names best practices and apprehend the current key topics of the sector.
NDDCamp is organized each year by two French domain names investors, David Chelly and Philippe Franck. The fourth edition is co-organized by the eBusiness MBA of of ESG Paris. It is supported by Sedo and the French registry AFNIC.
The first two editions were targeting a French-speaking audience. In the 3rd edition, an English workshop has been organized in the afternoon, with a dozen of participants, mainly coming from Europe. We hope to receive a more international audience in this 4th Edition.
First of all, our speakers are excellent. In the leading domain name events, speakers are famous or represent well-known sponsors but that does not automatically make them interesting to hear. Lot of them spend their time investing in their own marketing or working hard in order to achieve financial success or to make their way in large companies. Our speakers don't care about being famous, rich or working for a great multinational, they are experts that love to share their knowledge and learn from the others.
Secondly, our audience is great, because the event is free. When you ask hundreds or thousands of euros to participate to an event, you have also participants that are rich, famous or work for a large company, but you loose almost all the real people that know tons of things an make a living from their skills.
Thirdly, as well as learning things and improving your business and networking, coming to NddCamp will make you spend a nice and relaxed time. At NddCamp, you don't need to be dressed like a prince(ss), boast to everybody your achievements, or pretend that you enjoy luxuous rooms with smiling hostesses and crazy parties at night. We don't give importance to who you are, how you look like and where you come from, we will just be happy to know more about YOU.
Eventually, spending a day in Paris is not bad in June, especially that the 21st of June is the "Music Fest Day", which is probably the nicest day of the year.

NDDCamp is a conference and a networking event where participants can make new contacts and improve their knowledge of the sector. It is the opposite of what generally happens in the domain name industry : you won't need to pay a lot of money to attend conferences from sponsors that have come to sell their products. You won't find either any fake auction nor advice to make money with investments that will never work.
NddCamp's main focus is not on business, but on sharing knowledge. France is a dwarf in the Internet world, with not even one major digital company, but for some reason, French SEO are among the best in the world. French lawyers are also very knowledgeable, because of a (too), complicated, developped and constraining trademark law. Eventually, French domain name investors have had to find inventive ways of monetizing or selling their portfolio, as the demand from endusers has never been consistant and as speculation is inexistant. All this kind of people, as well as registries, registrars, naming agencies and other internet professional meet together once a year at NddCamp.
The next NddCamp will take place on June 21, 2018 at the MBA ESG Campus, in Paris. This same day is the French "Fête de la Musique", a special day with thousands of improvised musical performances in the streets and the bars, as well as huge organized concerts.
At 11 am, 14 PM and 16 PM, three different workshops will be organized simultaneously, so that each participant can choose a topic that he or she has interest in.
In order to best meet the expectations of the audience, many topics related with domain names will be addressed throughout the day, such as new TLD, expired domains names, branding advice, cybersquatting, SEO tools, etc.
And not to miss the nice open buffet, in a comfortable room devoted to restauration, networking and discussion with sponsors and participants.
