As you may know, from 8 May to 2 June 2000,
Turkey will host ITUĺs World
Radiocommunication Conference (WRC 2000), an
event which will play a key role in
determining what kinds of wireless systems
will be available in coming years. The
Conference will be held at the Istanbul
Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC).
The four-week long
conference, which is held every two to three
years, is the forum where countries decide
on the shared use of the frequency spectrum
to allow the deployment or growth of all
types of radiocommunication services, from
television and radio broadcasting to mobile
telephony, maritime and aeronautical
navigation and safety systems, and science
services. (see http://www.itu.int/newsroom/press/releases/1999/99-25.html).
I would like to invite
you to accredit to cover the event on-site
or by correspondence. To apply for
accreditation, you may register via http://www.itu.int/newsroom/wrc2000/.
Please read the instructions carefully. An
acknowledgement will be sent when your
accreditation has been accepted.

on-site might wish to know that, this time,
photo badges will be issued and,
consequently, they cannot be mailed in
advance. When issuing badges, priority will
be given to pre-accredited journalists. I
therefore strongly recommend you to
register as early as possible and in any
case before the start of the Conference.
Meanwhile, if you
require any further information on the
event, do not hesitate to contact us.
