I think there would be a need to have some kind of coordination. The
ME DNS Forum has to be rotated around the region instead of sticking
to one country, for example Dubai. I know the MENOG does rotate but
the trouble I had this year with MENOG was that it was right after the
ICANN Meeting or even during it. Thats a bit of a pain but then all
these organizations and events are independent to organize and
schedule on their respective programs.

I wonder how much the MENOG rotates.

This year’s MENOG took place right after the ICANN meeting in Singapore. If we are to have the ME DNS Forum around MENOG, the forum ends up being in Dubai every year, and this does not satisfy the idea of rotating it around the region. Another concern would be to have the forum right after an ICANN meeting (which would be very challenging for various logistical reasons).
