Announcement: ICANN has posted the host country site for Singapore, and lists
You can book via ICANN's link to the website. However, as usual, there are
other options for booking and some appear more reasonably priced.
I went onto Expedia and got lower rate quotes for both those hotels, so members
may want to check out other options than booking via ICANN/Host country web
site if you decide to stay at the two hotels affiliated with the venue. AND,
as usual, if some of you find other hotel deals, do let colleagues know.
We will begin to formulate a working agenda for the CSG and BC's meetings
shortly and will be asking for member input shortly.
I have also been contacted by the IGF Asia, who will hold a two day national
IGF just before ICANN. They are interested in making business aware of that
event, which is still under development.
Three things to do now: ALL OFF LIST BUT IMPORTANT:
1) Let Benedetta know if you will plan to come to Singapore in person so that
she can begin to update the meetings list2) If you think you are interested in
more information about the IGF Asia, let me know off list at
firstname.lastname@example.org) If you are interested in participating in a remote
hub [if we do arrange that with a sponsoring/coordinating member] in the
Silicon Valley area of US West Coast, let Benedetta know that as well. That
would require you to agree to attend thoughat one fixed site, so that it
justifies asking a member to keep their offices open at extremely late hours.
Benedetta will also be posting a schedule for further BC member calls shortly.
[no need to repost about using a calendaring tool/that is under discussion
within the ExComm/and will be addressed shortly].
