ICANN70 Releases Prep Week Schedule

People attending the online-only ICANN70 may find participating in Prep Week useful. If so, ICANN has announced the schedule to help the community prepare for the upcoming Virtual Community Forum, which will be held from 22 to 25 March 2021.

It was announced in January ICANN70 would be held as a Virtual Community Forum, another casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the meeting initially planned to be held in Cancún, Mexico.

There will be ten sessions for Prep Week, being held from 8 to 11 March 2021. To attend any of the sessions, please register for ICANN70. After registering, you will receive two emails:

  • A registration confirmation
  • An email with login information for the schedule

Once you log into the schedule, you will be able to sign up for ICANN70 Prep Week sessions. Please note that for security purposes, participation links will be posted 24 hours prior to the session start times. The session schedule will display in your local time, based on the time set on your device used to view the website.
