Dear MAG,

For those who may be interested, I would like to inform you that cocktails can be organized at UNESCO (7th floor, incredible view of Paris including the Eiffel Tower) every evening between 6.30pm and midnight. We have asked for standards quotations from the UNESCO catering manager and we will share with you as soon as we have them. Cocktail spaces can accommodate up to 700 persons and the rooms can be divided to have several events at the same time (up to 3 simultaneously).

Monday evening is already booked for the reception by technical community organizations.

Should some be willing to organize executive breakfasts on site, please let us know.

Pierre Bonis will be your contact person for now, and will introduce you to the catering service manager at UNESCO.

Dear MAG,

Since last time we met in vivo in Geneva, things have been picking up here in Paris. A s you already know, IGF 2018- The Internet of Trust, will be hosted by the French Republic at UNESCO, from 12th  to 14th November, right after the celebration of the centenary of the end of World War 1 (http://www.centenaire.org).

The web site is http://igf2018.fr.

We are currently working on a (very) high level session on Day 1, from 3 to 7pm.

As I told you, IGF 2018 will be part of a special Paris Digital Week, which also includes the Paris Peace Forum (https://parispeaceforum.org/fr/) and the Gov Tech Summit https://govtechsummit.eu/. We encourage all IGF participants to also be part of these two events, as we send the same message to the participants of these two for a to attend IGF panels. You will be able to go from one site to the other very easily, either using public transportation (metro, bus) or by private means (rental bikes, e-scooters, ...).

I can only advise you to take care asap of your visa and hotel reservations.

And by the way, though I was initially supposed to be in Kabul by now, I will remain in my current position till the end of the IGF, as the coordinator for the French side, along with my friend Pierre Bonis, executive director of AFNIC, and Nicolas Chagny, chair of the French Chapter of the IGF, among many from the French civil society.

We look forward to welcome you all in Paris for a vibrant IGF.
