We would like to see ICANN help existing operational meeting efforts by supporting them with content, logistics and other possible way.
By separating DNS from NOG event, you are not only lowering your audience but also lowering NOG event's audience.
Please find ways to join efforts with MENOG, One World. One Internet.

If we are to have the ME DNS Forum around MENOG, folks in North Africa would not have the chance to host such a forum.

> 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.

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).
