Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced plans for the Asia Pacific (APAC) Domain Name System (DNS) Forum 2024. Organized jointly by ICANN and Pengelola Nama Domain Internet Indonesia (PANDI), the APAC DNS Forum 2024 is scheduled to take place 23–24 July 2024 in Bali, Indonesia.

The APAC DNS Forum 2024 will convene regional DNS experts and the broader community to discuss the latest developments, opportunities, and challenges in the domain name marketplace. Topics may include the digital outlook for the APAC region, cybersecurity, and the future of the DNS and emerging technologies. To provide participants the flexibility to attend in person or remotely, the APAC DNS Forum 2024 will be held as a hybrid event.

"The APAC DNS Forum 2024 provides a unique platform for the APAC community to engage, network, and collaborate. We are building an exciting agenda that will be meaningful and informational for the community," said Jia-Rong Low, Vice President, Stakeholder Engagement and Managing Director, ICANN Asia Pacific.

"PANDI's focus area for advances in DNS technology continues to be in line with ICANN's mission to create a stable and secure Internet. We are honored to be the co-host for the APAC DNS Forum 2024, and to contribute to supporting the growth of domain name usage in the APAC region," said PANDI Chairman John Sihar Simanjuntak. "We also look forward to discussions with stakeholders from across the APAC region because we are passionate about facilitating collaboration, exchanging ideas, and finding innovative solutions through this event. Our deepest warm welcome to Bali, Indonesia."

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 – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. 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 nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
