The Internet Commerce Association's Annual Meeting in Las Vegas in 2023 is a huge step forward for advocates leading the domain industry.

This month has been a busy one for industry leaders, with the release of various cover stories and columns discussing domain sales. This has included compiling a top 100 sales chart, wrapping up the previous year and kicking off 2023 with a bang. At the start of this new year, attendees will be getting ready to attend the ICA's annual meeting that commences on Sunday, January 22nd.

The ICA Annual Meeting presents an opportunity for industry friends to get together in a relaxed atmosphere which is much needed after such a hectic start to the year. It was once held within the NamesCon Global event, but the non-profit organization realized the need for expansion, and now the Annual Meeting has become its very own event.

In September 2021, the ICA experimented with a small but successful meeting at the Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Nevada, to celebrate its 15th anniversary. The gathering combined creative social activities with business sessions, including a popular town hall event. It was a winning formula and led to planning a bigger event which will exceed expectations. The number of registrants for the event at the newly acquired venue on The Strip at the Las Vegas Hilton in Resorts World has nearly tripled since the initial event in Henderson.

The agenda for the Annual Meeting in 2023 has also expanded, adding more activities to the itinerary. The day will commence with several social activities to choose from, which will be followed by a briefing from the General Counsel. Afternoon sessions will begin post-lunch break, and the evening social will be at the Bar Zazu within Resorts World. Finally, the event will come to an end on Tuesday with a half-day session hosted by pioneering domain attorney John Berryhill.

Attending the ICA Annual Meeting and becoming a member has many benefits, including opportunities, networks, and protection of interests and assets. The event is a great place to meet people and enhance both professional and personal life.


The ICA Annual Meeting is a significant event for advocates in the domain industry. It provides an opportunity for industry professionals to come together and discuss important topics, share insights, and network with like-minded individuals. The event is organized by the Internet Commerce Association (ICA), a non-profit trade organization that represents the interests of domain investors, developers, and related service providers.

The meeting typically features a diverse agenda that includes both social and business activities. Attendees can expect engaging keynote speeches, informative panel discussions, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities throughout the event. The agenda often covers a wide range of topics relevant to the domain industry, including legal and policy issues, new developments and trends, investment strategies, and best practices.

The ICA Annual Meeting also provides a platform for participants to voice their concerns, ask questions, and contribute to shaping the future of the domain industry. It fosters open dialogue and collaboration among industry leaders, helping to drive progress and innovation in the space.

Being a member of the ICA has several benefits beyond attending the Annual Meeting. Members gain access to resources and information that can assist them in navigating the complex domain landscape. They also have a voice in advocating for policies that protect their interests and promote a healthy domain market. Membership in the ICA demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and ethical conduct within the industry.

Overall, the ICA Annual Meeting is a valuable event for domain industry professionals, providing a platform for learning, networking, and advocating for the advancement of the industry.
