ICANN unveils 2020 public meeting locations - ITREALMS Online

Are you ready for more public meetings of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in the next two years? Well, ICANN just announced the locations for the 2020 ICANN Public Meetings to hold in Cancun, Mexico, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Hamburg, Germany, reports ITRealms.

ICANN, ITRealms reports, holds three Public Meetings each calendar year in different regions of the globe.

ICANN Public Meetings are a central principle of ICANN's multistakeholder model because they provide a venue for progressing policy work, conducting outreach, exchanging best practices, conducting business deals, and interacting with other members of the ICANN community, Board, and organization.

For instance, ITRealms reports that ICANN selected locations in the Latin America and Caribbean region to host ICANN's 67th Public Meeting, from 7–12 March 2020, which is otherwise known as the Community Forum to be held at the Cancun International Convention Center.

Also, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has been selected as the location in the Asia Pacific region to host ICANN's 68th Public Meeting, from 22–25 June 2020. The Policy Forum will be hosted by Dr. Suhaidi Hassan of the Internet Society Malaysia Chapter at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center.

Additionally, the third meeting, which is the Annual General Meeting (AGM) has been slated for Hamburg, Germany, at the European region to host ICANN's 69th Public Meeting, from 17–22 October 2020. The Annual General Meeting will be hosted by eco associationDENIC and the City of Hamburg at the Congress Center Hamburg.

ICANN holds three Public Meetings each calendar year in different regions of the globe. ICANN Public Meetings are a central principle of ICANN's multistakeholder model because they provide a venue for progressing policy work, conducting outreach, exchanging best practices, conducting business deals, and interacting with other members of the ICANN community, Board, and organization. Usually comprising more than 400 different sessions, these meetings are the focal point for individuals and representatives of the different ICANN stakeholder groups to introduce and discuss issues related to ICANN policy development. Participants may attend in person or remotely. Meetings are open to everyone and registration is free.

ITRealms recalls that ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address into your computer or other device – a name or a number. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world.
