Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced the locations for future ICANN meetings in 2023 and 2025.

Washington, D.C. has been selected as the location in the North America region to host the ICANN77 Policy Forum. ICANN77 will be held at the Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. from 12-15 June 2023.

Seattle, Washington has been selected as the location in the North America region to host the ICANN82 Community Forum. ICANN82 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Seattle from 8-13 March 2025.

ICANN holds three public meetings each calendar year in different regions of the globe. ICANN 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, interacting among members of the ICANN community, including Board and staff, and learning about ICANN. 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. ICANN meetings are free and open to everyone, and participants may attend in person or remotely.

About ICANN

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.
