GPF 2020 Attendee List

Registration for GPF 2020 is now closed. Registration for GPF 2021 will open at the end of 2020.

Appropriate GPF Attendees

  • Decision makers for interconnection activities representing an organization with one or more AS Numbers that actively exchanges traffic under its control
  • Technical staff, technical product managers, and non-sales executives for interconnection service providers (e.g. Internet Exchange, cross connects, optical exchange platforms) at an organization actively serving the needs of interconnection participants
  • Sponsor attendees per sponsorship agreements
  • GPF board members, event staff, and invited speakers

To provide context, the GPF team attempts to ensure that every attendee adds value to the collective and unique nature of GPF events. We have found in the past that the activities of those in roles involving sales, account management, business development, consulting services, product marketing, or similar non-operational roles are not appropriate. Similarly, someone who maintains a very limited amount of infrastructure, such as only a route server as opposed to maintaining broader Internet Exchange infrastructure, is not appropriate.

Based on past attendee feedback organizations (defined as someone operating one or more ASNs with a distinct interconnection policy) are limited to a maximum of two (2) attendees but we will consider one (1) or two (2) additional attendees for those who have specific regional representatives. It is helpful to other attendees and to the GPF Board if registration requests indicate regional involvement, e.g. “MTV Networks – EMEA”. We have expanded the capacity for GPF 2020 based on demand for the past couple events but will need to introduce a waitlist when approximately 315 are registered. In this case, priority will be given to attendees of organizations who are not yet represented.

The GPF 2020 Registration fee is $300 if paid before Friday March 20 2020 at 17:00 Pacific and $600 after that time due to financial commitments with our event venues. Your registration confirmation will include a personalized payment link. Similarly, the GPF 2020 refund policy is 75% for cancellations received at info [@] peeringforum {dot} com by the March 20 2020 deadline and 0% thereafter.
