IPv6 Panel

How to Attend the Meeting

Each morning during the meeting, you’ll receive a reminder email with information about that day’s session. If you’re a virtual attendee, that email will contain the link you need to access the Zoom meeting as well as our virtual social events.

Virtual attendees will be allowed into the Zoom 15 minutes before the meeting starts so you can say hello and chat with other attendees. If you’re on site in Nashville, just take a seat before the meeting begins.

We want to make sure you are ready to participate at the meeting. Before the meeting starts, visit the ARIN 49 materials site to get a sneak peek at the presentations and any additional materials and guides.
