Outreach Events

ARIN hosts a variety of outreach events to create opportunities for customers and the community to learn more about how they can maximize the value of their ARIN experience. These events are designed to help potential, new, and existing customers understand all of the services that ARIN provides in support of our community.

ARIN on the Road

ARIN on the Road is your chance to get face-time with ARIN and get your questions answered. These traveling, no-cost events provide the latest from ARIN on everything from technical services and tools, to current ARIN policy developments and the status of IPv6 adoption.

We’ll get you up to speed and solicit discussion topics in case there is something you want to know that isn’t on the agenda. Stick around for the optional Ask ARIN session and speak one-on-one with an ARIN staff member about requesting and managing Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6, ASNs), technical developments, or policy issues. We will also have a drawing for those that complete a short survey about the event.

ARIN Lunch by the Numbers

See the latest version of the ARIN Lunch by the Numbers handout here!

These lunches are tailored to ARIN customer organizations that may not have much visibility into the inner workings of ARIN. During lunch, ARIN staff will present an overview of current ARIN activities and services. Afterward, there will be plenty of time for questions and for you to provide us with feedback.

We will have a Registration Services Help Desk at each event, opening at 10:30 AM and available throughout the lunch, to answer any questions about your resources or pending requests. Two individuals per ARIN customer (i.e., an organization holding resources directly issued from ARIN) are welcome to attend.
