About the ccTLD News Sessions

Previous editions of the ccTLD News Sessions had an excellent collection of case studies, statistics, new developments, trends and more. The ccTLD News Sessions have been a part of the ccNSO Members Meetings for several years and has provided a global platform for both experienced and new people to meet, share experiences and discuss ccTLD-related aspects. For reference, the most recent session was held during ICANN77.
