ICANN in Hamburg
2020 sees the ICANN Conference come to Hamburg. The hosts, our member eco – Verband der Internetwirtschaft e. V. and DENIC, together with the City of Hamburg, will be welcoming the international Internet community to the 69th meeting of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) from 17 to 22 October 2020.
ICANN is a non-profit organization that is responsible for the worldwide coordination of names and parameters for the functioning and further development of the Internet. For example, the organization ensures that users reliably reach the web page that they entered in the browser address bar.
Between 2,500 and 3,500 participants from research, the tech community, politics, business and civil society are expected to attend the meeting in Hamburg in two years’ time.
