  • Thread-topic: Sponsorship of the ICANN Meetings


I am not sure of the correct forum to bring this up however I do so here...

I have been contacted by a number of my constituents regarding the severe 
raising of pricing of the sponsorship packages for the upcoming San Francisco 

In most cases prices within the different levels of sponsorship packages have 
doubled and it seem that ICANN is trying to secure a few sponsors at $500,000. 
This seems, to me at least, just plain crazy!

My organization has sponsored on a number of occasions and are potentially 
again this time. However I am concerned of these changes and the impact they 
may have.

The reason I bring it up in this forum is because I wonder if this is something 
the Council could take a position of. We all benefit from a healthy 
participation of sponsors. Without them the meetings would not exist. However, 
I believe ICANN is being just plain greedy and this could potentially harm 
future meetings.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
