ICANN56 Technical Report Now Available!

ICANN56 Helsinki FinlandICANN has released its ICANN56 Technical Report, which summarizes findings from their first Policy Forum. These meeting technical reports are part of ICANN‘s commitment to transparency. These metrics are also designed to help them improve meetings, as we learn what attendees want, what we are doing well and where we can improve.

The report presents the data in an accessible and easy-to-read format – using charts, graphics and tables. Highlights of the findings include:

  • 1,436 attendees, 24% first-time attendee
  • 264 sessions held
  • Most attended session: Welcome and Multistakeholder Ethos Award Presentation
  • 477 mobile app users with 355 schedules created
  • 400 meeting website users and 37,106 pages viewed
  • 1,344 remote participants
  • Streaming hours: 36% English, 14% French, 14% Spanish, 9% Arabic, 9% Chinese, 9% Portuguese, 9% Russian

ICANN’s goal is to improve on the metrics we collect each meeting. They are also analysing trends by comparing data meeting over meeting. Learning about trends gives greater insights into how they are meeting the needs of attendees, and informs the kinds of changes they need to make. This information soon is expected to be released soon – stay tuned!
