Domain Roundtable is a yearly conference dedicated to bringing together professionals engaged in the domain industry to learn and share their experiences about the latest technologies and products in the online market place as well as the future trends of the industry.

Jay Westerdal, founder of Name Intelligence, Inc. started the Domain Roundtable Conference in 2005. The first conference was held in Seattle, Washington and it was attended by ICANN executives and featured talks concerning developments at ICANN. Jothan Frakes was the first producer of the event.[1]
