The .CO Registry Welcomes Guests to 39th ICANN Meeting in Colombia

As the host of ICANN's 39th International public meeting, taking place in Cartagena de Indias from December 5th through the 10th, .CO Internet S.A.S., the registry operator of the .CO domain, will begin welcoming ICANN delegates to Colombia over the course of the coming weekend.

The 39th ICANN public meeting is expected to attract between 800-1000 delegates from around the world, who will participate in the important work of further enhancing the security, stability and global reach of the Domain Name System.

The public meeting will take place in the state-of-the-art Cartagena de Indias Julio César Turbay Ayala Exhibition and Convention Center. While a variety of working groups, supporting organizations and committees will meet over the weekend, the public meeting will officially kick off on Monday, December 6th at 9:00am, with a formal Welcome Ceremony.

On Wednesday evening, .CO Internet cordially invites all ICANN guests (and their spouses) to attend an authentically Colombian Gala celebration, which is being sponsored by Neustar. The Gala event will commence at 7:00pm in the renowned Plaza de las Banderas, which is conveniently located just next door to the Convention Center. Guests in attendance should expect to enjoy typical Colombian food, music, dancing and fun — along with spectacular views of the Bay of Cartagena and the old city.

According to Juan Diego Calle, CEO of .CO Internet S.A.S., "Neustar has stood right beside us through every stage of our company's growth and development, seamlessly powering our back-end technology and helping to turn .CO into the world's next premier web address. For this reason, we couldn't be more proud to have the Neustar team standing beside us on Wednesday evening as the Sponsor of 39th ICANN Gala."

Invitations to the Gala will be distributed in the welcome bags dispensed at the ICANN registration desk. If you lose your invitation or you should need an extra one for your spouse, please visit the .CO or Neustar booths. Badges will need to be worn or invitations collected to gain entry to the Plaza de las Banderas.

Please note that the Gala is being held in an outdoor venue, and the climate is typically quite hot. Guests are reminded to wear light, cool attire for maximum comfort and fun. Also, please visit the official ICANN website for a detailed guide of the event, meeting schedules and other important details.
