Hello all,

following up on the RightsCon conference, please be so kind to see the
email from Jean-Jacques Sahel, asking whether EURALO members will be
attending and interested in actively participating in a booth.
Kindest regards,

Dear Olivier,

As I mentioned over the phone, ICANN will take part this year in
RightsCon, which takes place late March in Brussels. In particular,
ICANN CEO Goran Marby has been invited to take part in a high level
panel on Thursday 30 March.


As one of the leading conferences on Internet issues, it is a good place
for the ICANN community to engage with a range of civil society
stakeholders and also more widely, with many business and government
stakeholders in attendance. Details are here: https://www.rightscon.org/.


There is a possibility of having a booth at the event. We think this is
potentially a good opportunity to raise awareness of ICANN and encourage
participation for the range of potentially interested stakeholders who
will be attending RightsCon.


Before we proceed with reserving a booth (which we need to do in the
very next few days), we felt it important to see if there would be
interest from our constituencies in this booth; we would like to make
sure that the booth can serve to display the brochures and other
information from across ICANN and its constituencies, and preferably
also that community members are involved directly in ‘manning’ the
booth, together with ICANN staff, so that community members themselves
can engage directly with interested conference delegates.


So I wanted to ask if (i) there would be At Large community members
likely to attend RightsCon and (ii) if they and At Large / EURALO more
widely would indeed be interested in us having a booth at the event, and
in being involved at the booth on the day.


I’d be grateful for your advice,

Thank you,





Vice-President, Europe
