ICANN announced that there is a lot of interest in the regional Registry Registrar meeting, taking place in Amsterdam January 24th and 25th 2013. With over 240 registrants, this is by far the most attended regional meeting since ICANN started hosting regional meetings in 2005. ICANN expects a productive event and a positive dialogue among all the registry and registrar stakeholders attending.
ICANN Board Member Bertrand de la Chapelle opened the meeting as the keynote speaker and ICANN’s President and CEO Fadi Chehadé will be closing the meeting with a roundtable session on Friday. As part of the event, ICANN also welcomed the future registries and registrars from the region that have registered, and hosted a special newcomers session on Thursday morning.
If someone is unable to attend in person, they are welcome to join via remote participation. For the agenda and remote participation access details, please see: http://meetings.icann.org/meetings/registry-registrar-jan13-en. These meeting will be recorded, and the presentations will be posted on the ICANN site soon after the conclusion of the meeting.
