THE-ICE IPoE Forum 2021

While we hope to all come together in October, the safety of our members is paramount and THE-ICE will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions. In the event that this face-to-face event cannot proceed, THE-ICE will host a Virtual IPoE (VIPoE) or hybrid event to ensure that members will still have the opportunity to come together, network, and support one another during these exceptional times.
