APNIC 30 venue change

APNIC 30 will now be held at the Marriott Hotel, Gold Coast, Australia.

After much consideration, the APNIC EC has made the difficult decision to change the APNIC 30 meeting venue.

The APNIC EC and Secretariat extend their thanks to TOT for its hard work and support of APNIC 30 Bangkok and deeply regret the situation has necessitated this decision.

The APNIC EC emphasized that the safety of APNIC 30 delegates should be the organization's primary concern in staging the event.
