Summary
Blacknight's CEO, Michele Neylon, will be speaking at Nordic Domain Days, a part of Swedish Internet Days, a two- day conference in Stockholm, Sweden focusing on Internet infrastructure.

Domain Name Guru and Internet activist Michele Neylon joins roster of illustrious speakers for Nordic Domain Days, a part of Swedish Internet Days, a two- day conference in Stockholm, Sweden focusing on Internet infrastructure.

If infrastructure geniuses and Open Internet architects can be considered stars, then there is perhaps no conference more star studded than Swedish Internet Days with a keynote speaker line up that includes Dan Sinker of Knight-Mozilla, Hillary Mason of Fast Forward Labs and activist Nnenna Nwakanma. The conference, in its 16th year is organized by The Internet Foundation in Sweden, IIS, an independent organization that is responsible for .se, the Internet’s Swedish top-level domain, and promotes the positive development of the Internet in Sweden.

Within Swedish Internet Days, is Nordic Domain Days, a part of the larger conference that focuses on the domain and hosting industry. Nordic Domain Days is one of 16 simultaneous events within Swedish Internet Days and will be held November 23-24, 2015 at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre.

Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon is returning to speak at Nordic Domain Days in a session titled “Communication Between Registries and Registrars”. The session focuses on how changes to the domain industry affect the way registries and registrars work together. Neylon explains: “The introduction of new TLDs as well as policy changes introduced by ICANN have dramatically altered the registry/registrar landscape. Those of us who have been in the business a long time, may have a clearer perspective on what these relationships will look like going forward and how we can make changes for the better.”

Neylon will be joined by many Domain industry veterans including Jeanette Söderlund Sause, Torbjörn Carlsson and moderator Francesco Cetraro.

“We are very excited to have Blacknight CEO and domain name guru Michele
Neylon join us at the very first Nordic Domain Days as a speaker and
panelist,” states Lars-Göran “LG” Forsberg, Manager of Sales at IIS, organiser of Nordic Domain Days. “With the insight Michele brings to the table we are especially looking forward to his talk about having both a ccTLD and a nGTLD sharing a
primary market, the Irish people”.

Event organizers encourage attendees to hang out with some of the brightest minds from the domain and hosting industry, and have set admission to Internet Days at SEK 1,000 for one day and SEK 2,000 for two days (excluding VAT).
