On May 21 the City of Stockholm kindly invites participants of SIF to a reception in the world famous Stockholm City Hall. Welcome!
The building, designed by architect Ragnar Östberg, took eleven years to complete and was inaugurated on Midsummer’s Eve 1923. It is a magnificent multi-purpose building; some 200 people, politicians and civil servants have their workplace in this stately structure. The City Hall also boasts some of the world’s finest banquet premises, used among others by the Nobel Foundation for the annual Nobel banquet. In these unique and historical premises participants will be treated with a buffet of Swedish delicacies during a reception hosted by the Presidency of the Stockholm City Council.
We are also happy to announce two speakers for the reception:
One is Fadi Chehadé, President and CEO of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, ICANN. He is a citizen of Egypt, Lebanon and the United States and has more than 25 years of experience in building and leading progressive Internet enterprises and leveraging relationships with senior executives and government officials across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States. At the moment, Fadi Chehadé and his organization is about to launch new generic Top Level Domains, a change that could redraw the entire Internet map.
Update: Grace Githaiga will also be speaking at the City Hall
