São Paulo, the largest city and most important commercial
and financial center of Latin America, is honored to host ICANN's
27th meeting, which will gather leaders and companies of
the region and from all around the world, GAC representatives – ICANN's

With those meetings, ICANN encourages the wide international
participation in the Internet's governance development
process with different actors from governmental sectors
and the civil society (a multistakeholder approach), gathering
participants of more than 80 countries, merging influent
leaderships, pioneers, visionaries and governmental authorities.
Therefore, this is a great opportunity to establish contact
with that selected public of global leaderships.
Another excellent reason for attending ICANN São
Paulo is the pleasure to be in Brazil, with its astonishing
landscapes and mild temperatures. Being in São Paulo
will offer you contact with the best of culture and entertainment,
the internationally recognized quality of the local cuisine,
its theaters, museums, parks and good shopping opportunities,
which only a big city can offer. São Paulo is also
the Brazilian aeronautic hub, allowing you to travel and
know the most beautiful beaches in the Northeastern region,
the Amazonian region with its forest and the largest river
of the world, the city of Rio de Janeiro, and the wonderful
places of the Southern region – all that easily and
at low costs.
The Brazilian Internet Steering Committee and its executive
arm, NIC.br, will do anything to make your stay as pleasant
as possible, making this a memorable meeting, both for
its results and for its hospitality.
We want to note that those meetings are open to everyone
interested in global Internet policies, either professionals,
members of commercial entities or even common persons interested
in that issue. The meetings are free to attend; the only
requirement is your registration in the event's site.
