The following ICANN New gTLDs global outreach and consultation events are free of charge and open to anyone who wishes to learn more about the New gTLD program.

The live outreach events give an introduction to New gTLDs, provide up-to-date program developments and make available relevant ICANN staff for questions and answers. These sessions are aimed at people with little or no prior knowledge of New gTLDs.

The live consultations will engage the global Internet community to discuss workable solutions to outstanding issues on specific aspects of the program, particularly trademark protection and malicious behavior. These sessions are aimed at people that have been closely following the program development and still have concerns.

In the near future, ICANN will make available webinars that will give an introduction to the New gTLD program, and an in-depth understanding on specific topics and up-to-date program developments. These sessions are aimed at people with different levels of knowledge.

Pre-registrations for consultation and outreach events are closed for now. Additional events are under planning

We anticipate a high demand for places so early on-line registration is highly recommended as space is limited and allocation will be on a first-come first-served basis to those that have pre-registered. Though some spaces are being reserved for representatives of local organizations, and to ensure we get an even spread of views, preference will be given to those who have submitted comments on the New gTLD Draft Applicant Guidebooks and who have not participated in any of our other Consultation Meetings. Knowing the number of attendees will also help us to plan the venue and will allow us to notify you if there are any significant issues or updates.

Please check our website 48 hours in advance of the event if you have not pre-registerd for advice on at-the-door admittance as unregistered participants cannot be guaranteed admission.

Pre-registered participants are given the option to have their name appear on the public registration list, and will also have the ability to make changes to their registration data.

Please note, attendees are responsible for their own travel and visa requirements, accommodation and meals.
