3 October 2008

Are you interested in hosting an ICANN meeting in 12 months' time? Are you based in Europe? If so, ICANN's meetings team would like to hear from you.

From 25-30 October 2009, ICANN has scheduled its 36th international public meeting to be held in Europe. In response to requests for advanced planning, the organization plans to routinely prepare meeting locations 12 months ahead. So if you are interested, please review our meeting Request for Proposals and submit an Expression of Interest.

ICANN public meetings draw individuals from around the globe and attract a wide range of participants who follow Internet addressing and policy issues. The meetings receive international press coverage and provide an ideal opportunity for participants, sponsors, and hosts to interact on key Internet issues.

We are also interested in hearing from possible hosts of the meeting to be held on 7-12 February 2010 in Africa.

All interested parties should submit a completed Expression of Interest Form via email to meeting@icann.org. Any inquiries should be sent to the same email address.
