    As long as no one is able to provide the reason behind this shift, this remains guesswork.

    There is however a very good reason to do a meeting outside the USA. A number of citizens of a list of well know countries (most of them in the middle-east) who do not carry a diplomatic status currently encounter severe problems to enter the USA.

    This is already a well known fact to the cultural and academic community. Well reputed people who were often able to visit the USA suddenly did not receive visa.

    But as long as ICANN does not provide a reason for such a proposal we run in mere speculation.

    The reason is that ICANN's staff didn't seem to be able to rent space in their favorite hotel in Marina Delrey. So instead of looking for other space in the LA area, they simply decided that it's time for ICANN to run off to Europe once again, where one can only assume that hotels are equally booked for Christmas events and at a time when discount air fares are few and far between.

    The additional cost to ICANN of doing a meeting in Europe rather than doing one in Los Angeles is probably in excess of $50,000(US). And because of the Christmas season, the additional cost of this meeting will probably be even higher.

    No hotels in LA? Come on. There are plenty of other US cities with hotel rooms. ICANN is having a second meeting in Europe to counter the ITU and to play up its relationship with the EU. The first European meeting was in Romania, not much of an Internet powerhouse. The second meeting will be closer to the EU (Brussels makes sense). But the Barcelona suggestion might not be far off. ICANN has never met in Spain, and it should have no shortage of hotel space.
