ICANN’s next meeting is being held in New Delhi.
ICANN meetings are supposedly free and accessible to the public.
So how come the hotels they’re suggesting cost about US$400 / night?
Most delegates would be attending for most of the week, so the cost of the hotel bed ONLY would be in excess of US$2400. You still have to factor in food and transport ie. getting a plane from wherever to Delhi.
So if you expect Joe Public to be attending ICANN meetings maybe you know why he doesn’t now!
Whoever organised the meeting needs to get a grip on reality
And don’t expect the locals to attend either, as the average Indian has to survive on less than 20 rupees a day (the lowest price hotel on the ICANN site is over 14 thousand rupees!)
