First RIPE Meeting?

We want you to have a productive and enjoyable experience at your first RIPE Meeting. Once you pick up your meeting pack and badge from the Registration Desk, please stop by the RIPE NCC Info Hub to visit the Meet & Greet Team. We can answer your questions about RIPE 66, the RIPE community and the RIPE NCC.

The Meet & Greet Team can also help you make an appointment with RIPE NCC staff to discuss issues that may be of interest to you, including Internet number resource requests, becoming a RIPE NCC member and billing information. We can also introduce you to key players from the RIPE community.

We’re around throughout RIPE 66 and if you have any questions before or during the meeting, please do get in touch with us in person or via meet-greet [at] ripe [dot] net.
