As this is a “policy forum” there are fewer frills ie. no big opening ceremony, gala or board meeting.
As they’ve been doing for the last few meetings ICANN is using Sched to manage the schedule, which means that you can easily setup your personal schedule online. There’s also mobile apps and a responsive site, so you can easily manage things “on the go”.
If you’re planning on attending there are still spaces available in hotels near the venue.
