    MAJOR INTERNET POLICY MEETING TO BE HELD IN WELLINGTON IN 2006

    The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has just
    announced that its March 2006 meeting will be held in Wellington, New
    Zealand.

    ICANN, a private sector organisation, has responsibility for co-ordinating
    policy relating to Internet domain names and IP addresses. A number of
    countries bid to host ICANN meetings, and InternetNZ, the .nz country code
    manager, was the successful bidder for the March 2006 meeting.

    "We are delighted that we will be having this opportunity to host an ICANN
    meeting." said Executive Director Pete Macaulay. "It will provide a great
    opportunity for New Zealanders to attend, without the cost of overseas
    travel. It also will bring to New Zealand over 500 ofthe leading people
    involved with the Internet including ICANN Chairman and "Father of the
    Internet", TCP/IP co-creator Vint Cerf.

    "The meeting will be held from the 27th to the 31st of March 2006, and will
    primarily be at the Wellington Convention Centre and the Duxton Hotel.

    InternetNZ President Keith Davidson, who chaired the bid committee, said
    "InternetNZ is looking forward to the challenge of organising this
    majorevent, which in fact is not just one meeting, but a collection of
    around 20separate but related meetings for registries, registrars, country
    codemanagers, intellectual property lawyers, Internet users, and
    Governmentrepresentatives."
