Welcome to Hamburg: Virtual Show at ICANN69, sponsored by DENIC

Get ready for an entertaining evening with talks, live music and pub quiz at its best, after breathing maritime flair on a virtual tour around Hamburg, the ‘gateway to the world’!

As part of ICANN's 69th community meeting, DENIC cordially invites you to a virtual tour of Smart City Hamburg on 20 October 2020, between 14:30 and 15:30 UTC! Journalist and presenter David Patrician will take you to the sights of the Hanseatic city. You will listen to live music from the clubs of St. Pauli and get to know digital Germany.

Ready for a challenge? Test your knowledge in a live online quiz specially designed by Tom and Darren when our tour stops at Hamburg’s favorite quiz pub, Aalhus. With some wit and a little luck, you might win a night at Grand Elysée Hotel, in close vicinity to the Alster river.

Domains, DNS, digital infrastructures, and Germany’s number one Smart City: These will also be the topics of the discussion round with DENIC CEO Dr. Jörg Schweiger, Chair of the Board of eco – Association of the Internet Industry, Oliver J. Süme, and Dirk Krischenowski, Managing Director of Hamburg Top-Level-Domain GmbH.
