Report highlights:

  • 3,182 attendees, which broke the previous record of 3,155 for ICANN50 in London
  • 70% of attendees listed their region as Asia (ICANN 57 was held in Hyderabad, India but still this number is quite big)
  • 381 sessions held
  • Top three sessions by attendance:
    • Opening Ceremony
    • Public Forum 1
    • Public Forum 2
  • 942 unique mobile app visits

  1. So it follows that if 70% of the attendees are from Asia, any claims that the “the Chinese market is dead” are laughable – because we all know that it’s quite an investment to go to conferences.
