ICANN at ITU Telecom World in Hong Kong, China, 4-8 December 2006

28 November 2006

The ITU Telecom World will take place in Hong Kong, China, from 4-8 December 2006. ICANN will participate in the Internet Pavilion, part of the Exhibition Hall related to the meeting. The Internet Pavilion, co-sponsored by the NRO, ICANN, and ISOC, will be located in Stand 8053 in Hall 8 of the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong.

Through the Internet Pavilion, we aim to reach out to and engage industry stakeholders. The Pavilion’s sponsoring organisations' long-established bottom-up structures are built to bring new participants and ideas easily into the open and transparent decision-making processes. The Telecom World Forum is also a valuable opportunity for us, not only to continue ongoing outreach efforts, but to stimulate the dialogue with the community. In this way, we can learn more about their activities, interests and processes, and become active in their efforts.

"ICANN, ISOC, and the NRO, along with many other organizations, work together collaboratively to increase participation in the Internet's development and management structures through the open, bottom-up processes that are central to the administration and management of the Internet. We look forward to participating at ITU Telecom World because it is an important opportunity for our community-based organizations to reach out to as broad a range of stakeholders as possible: the Internet plays an integral role in ICTs and a valuable role in the business of every exhibiting organization present at ITU Telecom World."
