“Moniker owned the Internext auction, so rather than trying to take its spot, we aimed for the Phoenix Forum, which is much bigger,” company president Rick Latona told XBIZ. “Phoenix Forum is known as the biggest show in the business, so as far as I’m concerned, it’s a major win for our company as an auctioning company, and we’re going to give it everything we’ve got.”
Rick Latona Auctions is currently seeking people and companies wanting to provide domains, hosting, content, traffic and such for the auction.
“Everybody’s going to be there anyway, so what I’m hoping to get is submissions,” Latona said. “We’re interested in hearing about any creative things that people might want to auction off.”
Latona added that the official inventory would probably be announced in late March.
The Phoenix Forum takes place April 2-4 at the Tempe Mission Palms hotel in Tempe, Ariz.
