Hamburg has been chosen as the host for the 69th meeting of ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) from 17-23 October 2020 at the Congress Center Hamburg (CCH).

Established in 1998, ICANN is the non-profit organisation in charge of globally coordinating names and parameters to facilitate the functioning and further development of the internet.

Hamburg’s bid had a very clear focus on highlighting the city’s greatest assets certainly and a united stance from key players in the realms of business, science and tourism.

Senator Frank Horch commented: "Hamburg is a media and technology centre and I am delighted that it will be hosting the 2020 ICANN conference."

Oliver Süme, solicitor and chair of the board at eco (Association of the Internet Industry) added: "Following the Berlin conference in 1999, it will be the first time in 20 years for an ICANN conference to take place in Germany. With eco, Denic and the City of Hamburg, three strong stakeholders have joined forces to make this event happen."
