ICANN Meeting in Marina del Rey

12-15 November 2001

ICANN's next meeting will be held 12-15 November, 2001, at the Marina Beach Marriott in Marina del Rey, California.

The meeting will not follow the usual ICANN format. The meeting days November 13-15 will be devoted to a special meeting on the "Security and Stability of the Internet Naming and Address Allocation Systems" to be followed by a meeting of the ICANN Board of Directors on the final afternoon. The first day, November 12, is reserved for normal business meetings not connected with the security focus of the remainder of the meeting.

As always, the ICANN's meeting is open and participation is encouraged. Anyone can attend and there is no registration fee. However, because of the special nature of the agenda for this meeting and because of heightened security concerns, pre-registration is required to attend this meeting. No one will be allowed to participate who has not pre-registered.

IMPORTANT: Pre-registration closed at 09:00 am (PST) on Thursday November 8th.

Public list of pre-registered attendees. (Displays only those who have consented to being on the list.)

Information on the area surrounding the meeting:


Starting with the Marina Del Rey 2001 meeting, there will be a new format for sponsorship opportunities for this ICANN meeting. This is in response to feedback that we have received from the constituencies and the community. It is our hope that this will offer proper visibility for those who chose to support our meeting, while preserving its neutrality for all participants.

All sponsors will have their logos appear on the ICANN website and during breaks on the meeting screens. A table will be provided for distribution of literature for sponsors only. Additional recognition of sponsorship is listed below in the description of each level. An organization that is not a sponsor will not be permitted to distribute commercial materials in the meeting area. (This meeting is not a trade show).

Three levels of sponsorship are available:

Top-Level: US$15,000 — Booth/table in meeting area for entire meeting *

Second-Level: US$10,000 — Booth/table in meeting area for one day *

Third-Level: US$5,000 — Signage on coffee break tables

* For this meeting, top-level sponsors will also be designated as sponsors of a special event to be announced later; and second-level sponsors will also be designated as a co-sponsors of an ICANN meeting reception.
