What We Do: Initiatives
The Internet Infrastructure Coalition pursues multiple initiatives in our mission to protect innovation and promote the continued growth of the Internet’s infrastructure.
All of our members are invited to join specific interest sections within the i2Coalition, to help us lead on issues that are important to members and to the Internet infrastructure industry.
The i2Coalition takes an active role in the most influential Internet-industry events worldwide—including ICANN, CloudFest, NamesCon, and our own Fly-In event in Washington, D.C.
We foster a collaborative environment for leaders of the Internet industry around our common goal—encouraging connections between web hosting companies, data centers, domain registrars and registries, service providers, and emerging technologies.
