With ICANN54 being held in Dublin towards the end of October it’s only natural that there would be some excitement locally. It’s the first time that ICANN has held a public meeting in Ireland and the meeting is being hosted by the Irish IXP INEX.
On September 17th there will be a special event aimed at the local internet community.
When? September 17th from 1730 to 2000
Where? Dean Hotel, Dublin
The panelists will be:
- Michele Neylon, Blacknight
- Richard Browne, Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Representative of the Republic of Ireland in ICANN’s Government Advisory Committee
- Maria Farrell, ICANN civil society (NCSG) and InterConnect Communications
- Jean-Jacques Sahel, VP Europe, ICANN
- Moderator: TBC
It’s a good opportunity for the Irish technical, business and internet community to get some insights into what ICANN does and why it’s important to get involved.
From the official blurb:
The evening will be an opportunity to learn from some local and international experts about ICANN54 as well as an occasion to discuss the current hot topics present today in the Internet ecosystem, potential business opportunities, and why the world’s governments will be watching Ireland closely this October. INEX our hosts for ICANN54, will also be revealing their plans for the gala evening they are organising during the meeting in October.
