Igor also let me know that the Growth Marketing Manager Tatiana Tarasenko recorded a video interview with the founder of LDNS Helmuts Meskonis shortly before the start of the show. After the show, it’s always interesting as it focuses on why Helmuts launched the new event and how it thinks it will benefit domain investors in the UK and Europe in the future. You can watch this 5 minute clip on Youtube.
