While ITU is able to provision electronic facilities for remote participation in meetings, please be informed that due to staff cuts in support staff TSB no longer will be able to assist in starting and conducting such remote sessions when meetings are held outside ITU headquarters.

Rapporteurs would therefore need to rely on a person local at the meeting to start and manage the remote participation session. TSB will provide to the Rapporteur-designated person the details of a Gotomeeting account that has the necessary admin rights to perform those two tasks. Delegates may want to take a look at the support articles and training videos available online at

It should be noted that ITU will continue to provide staff support during sessions with remote participation for meetings taking place in ITU HQs, when they are booked with three weeks in advance.

As before, requests for setting up remote meeting participation facilities should be sent to the applicable group secretariat.
