Announcing APTLD80 Members Meeting to be sponsored by GoDaddy Registry

< back to list

17 August 2021

APTLD has a proud history of collaborating with GoDaddy Registry who has been a sponsor of several of our past Members Meetings. APTLD80 will be no different as again we are delighted to announce their sponsorship of our bi-annual regional forum for country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) managers in Asia Pacific.

As the pandemic persists into 2021 and travel for some countries is difficult, APTLD will once again pivot to a virtual forum with the APTLD80 Members Meeting being held online on 8-9 September 2021.

GoDaddy Registry will participate in the forum including having two esteemed speakers: James Brown, Senior Marketing & Communications Manager who will participate in the ‘Marketing: How to Improve Domain New Registration and Renewal Rate’ session; and Rohan Durrant, Senior IT Manager who will participate in the ‘Technical: My DNS, My Rules: Local Solutions for the Global Vehicle’ session.

“GoDaddy Registry is committed to leading the way in the domain name industry, especially within the Asia Pacific region and the APTLD community welcomes them to APTLD80. Whilst pivoting to an online forum they have still been able to add vibrancy to the event which in turn will help to improve engagement with our members and beyond.” said Mr. Leonid Todorov, General Manager of APTLD.

George Pongas, Senior Director of Corporate Affairs & Business Development added, “With nearly 250 of the world’s most recognised TLDs under management, and vast experience in running industry-leading ccTLDs, such as .in, .co, .us and .vu, we understand that every ccTLD has different needs and business requirements. That’s why we offer bespoke registry solutions to empower country code managers to succeed, from innovative technologies, to abuse mitigation, to marketing and community building to help your TLD to grow”.

GoDaddy Registry has organised fun Zoom backgrounds for the event and will also be hosting and running a quiz with industry specific questions and prizes awarded to the winners. Once again, they have organised a virtual photo booth where you can take a selfie and share on your social channels. Watch out for further details nearer the event.
