11:30 - 1:00 Keynote Howard Lefkowitz, Former President and CEO of, discusses domains and how to make a business.

11:30AM - 1:00PM Keynote Howard Lefkowitz, Former President and CEO of, discusses domains and how to make a business from that domain.

Besides being brilliant, Howard is quite entertaining and he will tell you things you don't want to hear. It won't be politically correct, either. So come with an open mind and leave with a truck full of ideas.

When Lefkowitz assumed the leadership of in 2001, the company had 26 employees and operated under an advertising-based model. Lefkowitz transformed the company into a diversified business of more than 400 professionals. is the world's largest city travel website, while its sister site,, is the world's second-largest. Both are the leading sellers of show tickets and hotel rooms for many of Southern Nevada's largest resorts.

What does think about .Vegas? What does .Vegas think about And how does fare? That's a discussion I want to hear, and since the folks from .vegas are there, it is a discussion we are likely to hear. Many consider this GROUND ZERO for competition, confusion and possible growth.

2:00PM - 3:00PM Are your domains Street Smart or Dumbed Down? The most dynamic panel we have ever had!

2:00PM - 3:00PM PPC and Domain Monetization Shootout. Well, that is what we used to call it when we were one dimensional domain investors. 

But we have all watched how each month payouts decline a few more points, while at the same time each company tells us they pay out the most. So who will stand up to the scrutiny, and how are these programs innovating to make you MORE money? They aren't.

This panel will blow the doors off of things. They will come at it quite differently and just may motivate us all to get up and get moving!

Neil Sackmary of, based in Las Vegas, Howard Lefkowitz of fame, and Tyson MacKay of .Vegas, the new gTLD, will give different views and ideas to make money.
