WebFest Global, the newly rebranded DomainFest, is coming to Santa Monica, California, in February 2013. It will have educational presentations ranging from SEO and mobile websites to affiliate marketing and new gTLDs.
In the domaining world, as for most industries, professional networks matter. So making contacts and building relationships at educational events is just as important as the technical learning. That is why WebFest will be hosting three parties: at a local promenade, under the wing of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, and at the Magic Castle nightclub. Three parties you do not want to miss.

In this show, Horowitz shares how he built his businesses, how he enforces his patent, and his views for the future of the domain name industry.
