With a view to the forthcoming submission of applications for the new gTLDs to ICANN from 12 January onwards, Melbourne IT and AFNIC are organising a seminar on 22 September entitled “Preparing for the new gTLDs”. Preview:


Following the liberalization of the gTLD name space which began last June, a large number of projects are liable to be filed with ICANN. It is essential for brand owners and majors to rapidly position themselves. The seminar entitled “Preparing for the new gTLDs” co-hosted by Melbourne IT and AFNIC is designed to allow decision-makers to better understand the business opportunities as well as the issues and implications involved.


Held in Paris on 22 September from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the seminar is designed for market players and IP professionals interested in the new gTLDs. It will give them an opportunity to discuss with Melbourne IT and AFNIC experts on the following subjects:

  • the business opportunities of the new gTLDs and possible brand strategies;
  • the process, terms and timing of applications
  • the obligations involved and the means required in order to obtain your own gTLD.
