Our initia­ti­ve con­sists of 75 part­ners of which near­ly 40 atten­ded our annu­al assem­bly last mon­day at BITKOM (the ger­man IT asso­cia­ti­on). Apart from a review of our mar­ke­ting, press, and ICANN acti­vi­ties we dis­cus­sed the timing for han­ding over our appli­ca­ti­on for .ber­lin to ICANN. At the fol­lo­wing euro­pean foot­ball cham­pi­on­ship game (ger­ma­ny vs. aus­tria) we net­work­ed with our part­ners and reflec­ted on future domain names like championship2016.berlin.
