The New York City TRAFFIC show truly marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new
challenge as we trail blaze into the next decade. There will be a
number of 'Lasts' and even more 'Firsts.' Our version of the 'Shark
Tank' will become a 'Signature event' at this and future T.R.A.F.F.I.C. shows.
We will be giving further details and some interesting twists that we
have planned that once again will clearly demonstrate to everyone in the
industry why TRAFFIC continually sets the tone and agenda. Why we lead
and others follow. Why we continue to have the most creative, timely and imaginative agendas. Why we do everything first. Why the original is still the best.
Isn't that what it is all about? Staying ahead of the curve by a record of cutting edge accomplishment? First car
on the roller coaster as opposed to just one in the middle? That first
car will see things that the others will never and can never see and
before anyone else gets to see it. That has a value way beyond anything
I can say! Value way beyond a few hundred bucks. Follow, lead or get
out of the way. There is serious work to do and things to accomplish in
New York City and beyond! The equation has changed and now our job is
to address that. New solutions are coming and it will be TRAFFIC that
brings them to you and brings them to you first as we have done year
after year after year. Show after show after show. Each a landmark event in the history of the Domain Industry.
Next week the prices of a ticket to TRAFFIC
go up to $1795 from the current $1495 level. We realize that so many of
you were distracted over the summer and now you begin to focus on
business. In the meantime Howard and I have been able to negotiate
certain concessions from the Marriott. So we have decided to offer a
$200 Marriott Room Credit for just the next 48 hours.
So if you buy a ticket to TRAFFIC by 5:00 P.M. Friday at $1495, you
will effectively have prices rolled back to mid summer level of $1295.
That is $500 off the price that goes into effect just next Wednesday
when the admission fee goes up to $1795 and then finally to $1995 next
month. This promises to be one of the most dynamic shows in a long time
and I will tell you why after just one other significant announcement.
In another FIRST, we are taking what we like to call 'Conditional Reservations'
for T.R.A.F.F.I.C. This is a new program designed for those who have
yet to sign up and are waiting until the full agenda is announced. All
that you have to do to take advantage of this
opportunity is to simply email me no later than 5 P.M. Tuesday and I
will reserve a $1495 slot that will be good until 24 hours after the
final schedule is posted and announced in just a few weeks. It's a
no-brainer for anyone who thinks that they just might want to attend
and save $500 just for sending an email. Between the tight voting on
the 2009 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. AWARDS and the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. SHARK TANK that
have already been announced, plus two premium Domain Auctions by
MONIKER and RICK LATONA AUCTIONS, plus the party of the year to be put
on by SKENZO, there will be additional news and surprises as we
approach the show. Every minute you spend at TRAFFIC is going to be
time that is going to pay dividends for a very long time.
and I have done everything in our power to bring costs down and to make
the show more affordable without cutting corners. We continue to
provide you with as many opportunities as possible. For all those who
have already paid the $1495 price (and only the $1495 price) we will
apply a $200 credit against your room at the Marriott automatically. We will never penalize you for registering early!
Thanks for your time and in the coming days we will demonstrate once again why TRAFFIC continues to lead.
