Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) helps coordinate the Domain Name System (DNS) by managing and administering the unique identifiers that let us reach another person, website, or information on the Internet. ICANN is responsible for such Internet developments as the New generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program, which has brought hundreds of new Internet extensions (.xyz, .hsbc, .bbc to name a few) that impact the private sector greatly in terms of business opportunities, trademark and brand protection issues, and technical requirements. ICANN 54 public meeting is being held in Dublin October 18-22.
On Monday, October 19, at 12:30, ICANN54 are organizing a lunch panel: Why My Business Participates at ICANN and Yours Should Too in L5 Foyer of the Convention Centre Dublin.
This lunch session is meant to provide a space for business newcomers to see the diversity of private sector participation at ICANN, connect with active stakeholders, and learn how to become involved. To RSVP and to add the event to your calendar please use this form: http://goo.gl/forms/u6NsGX2207.
