What is a RIPE Meeting?

A RIPE Meeting is a five-day event where Internet service providers, network operators and other interested parties get together.

The meeting is open to everyone. Although the meeting is mostly technical, it is also a chance for people who communicate regularly on an electronic basis to meet face to face. For this reason, we schedule long lunches and frequent coffee breaks during the meetings. On most evenings, there is a social event for meeting attendees.
