About the Internet Pavilion

The Internet Pavilion is an initiative of a number of the key organisations that are, among many other industry partners, responsible for both day-to-day management and policy development in the Internet sphere. Organisations at the Internet Pavilion will include:

  • Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)
  • Internet Society (ISOC)
  • Number Resource Organization (NRO)

At the Internet Pavilion, co-exhibitors, invited guests, and visitors will work together to reinforce the very important role that the Internet has in promoting important areas such as education, economic development, and knowledge transfer.

The Internet Pavilion aims to facilitate an understanding of why a collaborative and cooperative governance model is essential both to the success of the Internet and the development of the Information Society.
