Regional Meetings

Our Regional Meetings bring together local members, governments and key players in the global and local Internet. These two-day events are free of charge and open to everyone. You do not need to be a member to attend.

Bringing together members

Our regional meetings bring together RIPE NCC members, local governments and key players in the global Internet industry. These events are free of charge and open to everyone. You do not need to be a member to attend.

At these meetings, attendees share insights into technical, administrative and policy issues that impact members and industry organisations in a particular geographical region. They are also an opportunity for us to gain valuable feedback about our services and activities.

A regional meeting

In addition to the discussion of important local development and issues, attendees can find out more about the work of the RIPE community, how they can take part in the RIPE Policy Development Process and in RIPE Working Groups.

Several RIPE NCC staff members attend Regional Meetings. You can discuss topics such as technical issues, networking issues, measurement tools and training with specialised staff. RIPE NCC members can also discuss their membership details and resource allocations and non-members are able to ask questions about becoming a member, or about RIPE NCC using services that are open to all.
