2. Meeting Registration
Once you have signed up on the Ministerial website, you will have access to the Meeting Registration.
In the Meeting Registration page (http://www.oecdministerialseoul2008.org/en/registration/register.html), you will be invited to provide your personal and professional information (given name, family name, organization/company, etc). You will also need to clearly indicate if you will attend the meeting as part of a government delegation, international organization, or as part of a non-governmental stakeholder group (business, Internet technical community, civil society and organised labour). Please remember also to indicate which “community” you belong to, if different from your organization/company (e.g. IETF, or Consumers International).
Fill in all required fields and click “Submit”. Your application will be forwarded to the appropriate contact point or liaison that will confirm the registration. You will then receive an email confirming your registration. Once you receive an email confirmation, your registration will be completed.
Once your registration is completed, we invite you to visit the Hotel Reservation page (http://www.oecdministerialseoul2008.org/en/accommodation/online.html), to book your hotel accommodation during the Ministerial.
If you have any questions, or should you not receive an email confirmation, please contact the Registration Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hotel reservation can be made only after completing the meeting registration.
The meeting itself will take place in the conference facilities at the Convention & Exhibition (COEX) in Seoul.
The venue is about 46km away from the Incheon International Airport and can be easily reached from the airport by public transportation. For more information, click here.
