Does your company have a presence in Nashville, Louisville, Charlotte, 
Tampa or Orlando and interest in showing its support of ARIN and the 
Internet community? In order to hold a meeting in the spring of 2020, we 
need to secure a network connectivity sponsor. Because the host city is 
determined based on proximity to our network sponsor, this is the first 
and most important step in making ARIN 45 a reality.

ARIN Meeting sponsorship provides a great opportunity for your 
organization to show its support for the community-based, transparent, 
bottom-up policy development process that has served as the foundations 
on which Internet infrastructure has grown and flourished.

So what does ARIN need from its network sponsor?

     * Network Sponsors must provide at least 100 Mbit/s of bandwidth 
between the meeting venue and the Internet. ARIN prefers to have both 
IPv4 and IPv6 transit.

     * The sponsor must announce and route the netblock that ARIN provides.

     * ARIN will request a setup and install time, which varies based on 
the site, of at least 30 days prior to the meeting. ARIN staff will 
arrive 1-2 days prior to the meeting to begin setup.

     * ARIN also requires the network connectivity sponsor to provide 
support, in terms of staffing and resources, as necessary before and 
during the meeting to ensure operational uptime and mitigate any network 
connectivity problems that may arise.
