Welcome to Hamburg: Virtual Show at ICANN69

As part of ICANN69, we’d like to invite you to take a virtual tour of the Smart City Hamburg on 20 October from 16:30 p.m.! Journalist and presenter David Patrician will take you to the sights of the Hanseatic city. You’ll get to hear live music from the clubs of St. Pauli and get to know Digital Germany.

Ready for a pub quiz? In the popular Hamburg Aalhus, quizmasters Tom and Darren will test your knowledge. With a little luck and knowledge, you might just win a night at the Grand Elyseé Hotel, in direct vicinity to the Alster.

Domains, DNS, digital infrastructures, and Germany’s number one Smart City: These will also be the topics of the discussion round with eco Chair of the Board Oliver Süme, DENIC CEO Dr. Jörg Schweiger, and Dirk Krischenowski, Managing Director of Hamburg Top-Level-Domain GmbH. Together with our partners from the City of Hamburg and DENIC, eco is organising this special social event at the ICANN69 Virtual Annual General Meeting. Be part of the interactive livestream and go on tour with the ICANN community!

You can find the link to the free livestream here.
