REGISTRATION FOR ON-SITE PARTICIPATION​ 

The WSIS+20 Forum High-Level Event is open to all stakeholders from representatives across international organizations, civil society, academia, and the technical community working in the area of digital for development.

Registration requests are no longer managed by Focal Points, exception made for official delegations from ITU Administration Member States who will continue to be approved by their focal point. The registration process is individual, and requests will be reviewed and validated, if applies, by the ITU credential service. 

Participants from non-accredited entities (non-governmental organizations, civil society, business sector entities, etc ), as well as individuals and those who did not attend the WSIS Forum 2023 in Geneva, are required to complete the ''Expression of Interest'' form after submitting the online registration form.
