ICANN to Convene Annual European Regional Registry/Registrar Event

ICANN logoOn 12-13 May 2011, ICANN and its gTLD registration services providers will meet in Munich, Germany, the organisation announced this week. ICANN supports these regional events as they are a chance for their staff and representatives from gTLD registries and ICANN-accredited registrars to meet informally to discuss topics important to our industry and business relationships.

For the upcoming meeting, ICANN anticipates some of the agenda items to be:

  • Registrar Training per the 2009 RAA
  • Developments in DNSSEC
  • Developments in Contractual Compliance
  • Developments in GNSO Policy Initiatives
  • Developments in DNS Abuse Mitigation Efforts.

Similar to the regional event in Tokyo last August, the event is available to ICANN-accredited registrars and gTLD registries located around the globe that may have a regional or business interest in attending. Registration for the event will be available shortly and because space is limited interested registrars and registries are asked to pre-register. Others who may be interested in becoming an ICANN-accredited registrar or gTLD registry and wish to attend as observers should contact regionalevents@icann.org for details.
