FYI, I just booked in Singapore at the Conrad Centennial, which is part of the Hilton family. It is about 1/3 of a mile from the meeting venue and one block from the Pan Pacific, which is one of the three hotels listed on the ICANN Singapore website. It's a 5-star rated business hotel and has a variety of rates, including substantial discounts if you prepay in advance, as well as a book 3 nights get the 4th free offer. So BC members who have not yet booked their rooms might want to give it a look.

Benedetta, now you know where I'll be staying - I arrive late evening on Thursday 6/16 and depart very early morning on Saturday 6/25.

Best regards to all.

Subject: [bc-gnso] ICANN and Singapore Meeting venue -- announcement to members

Announcement: ICANN has posted the host country site for Singapore, and lists two hotels.

You can book via ICANN's link to the website. However, as usual, there are other options for booking and some appear more reasonably priced.

I went onto Expedia and got lower rate quotes for both those hotels, so members may want to check out other options than booking
via ICANN/Host country web site if you decide to stay at the two hotels affiliated with the venue.  AND, as usual, if some of you find other hotel deals, do let colleagues know.

We will begin to formulate a working agenda for the CSG and BC's meetings shortly and will be asking for member input shortly.

I have also been contacted by the IGF Asia, who will hold a two day national IGF just before ICANN. They are interested in making business aware of that event, which is still under development.

Three things to do now: ALL OFF LIST BUT IMPORTANT:

1) Let Benedetta know if you will plan to come to Singapore in person so that she can begin to update the meetings list
2) If you think you are interested in more information about the IGF Asia, let me know off list at marilynscade at hotmail.com<mailto:marilynscade at hotmail.com>
3) If you are interested in participating in a remote hub [if we do arrange that with a sponsoring/coordinating member] in
the Silicon Valley area of US West Coast, let Benedetta know that as well. That would require you to agree to attend though
at one fixed site, so that it justifies asking a member to keep their offices open at extremely late hours.

Benedetta will also be posting a schedule for further BC member calls shortly.  [no need to repost about using a calendaring tool/that is under discussion within the ExComm/and will be addressed shortly].
