Together with DENIC eG and the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, eco –Association of the Internet Industry is hosting the 25th meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

Around ICANN78, eco is organising an accompanying programme in collaboration with its members before, during and after ICANN78 to emphasise the significance of the DNS, the domain industry, ICANN and the ICANN78 meeting at both national and European levels. A highlight is the kick-off event of ICANN78: The Day Zero Workshop on the NIS2 policy and its impact on the DNS industry will take place on 20 October 2023 from 10:00-17:30.
