ICANN70 WILL BE A VIRTUAL COMMUNITY FORUM

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that the ICANN Board of Directors decided to convene ICANN70 as a Virtual Public Meeting due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This meeting was initially planned to hold in Cancún, Mexico. In consultation with community leaders, the ICANN70 Virtual Community Forum dates have been modified and the meeting will hold from the 22nd to 25th  March 2021.

The health and safety of the ICANN community is top priority and as such ICANN70 can not hold as an in-person meeting. As all are aware, a number of challenges to in-person meetings remain, including uncertainties around the ability and willingness of participants to travel, whether physical distancing requirements are possible to implement, the impact of a potential case among participants, and the progress of the second wave of the virus across the world. Whilst all appreciate the comradeship of face-to-face interaction, the safety of participants is important.

ICANN70 will be the fourth ICANN Virtual Public Meeting since the pandemic began.

Those interested in attending ICANN70 must register to participate. To learn more about the meeting time zone, language interpretation options, and schedule, visit https://70.schedule.icann.org.
