France-IX is a non-profit association which gathers up its members every year for them to vote the accounts and the renewal of the board committee. Members take part by voting for the financial accounts and the new board of directors.

The first part of the event is dedicated to France-IX achievements and next year plans. The second part of the event is open to sponsors and partners presentations and more generally attendees benefit from inspiring and high quality technical insights. The event ends with open discussions where everyone is free to share their opinions and inputs.

Attendees enjoy the numerous networking opportunities during the day, through coffee breaks, lunch and a cocktail at the end of the day. Sponsors benefit from these moments. France-IX GM starts at 9:00 AM with a welcome coffee, a lunch break, the announcement of the vote result, a mid-afternoon break of about 30 minutes, and a closing cocktail time to discuss informally with the participants.

The France-IX’s General Meeting is a private event reserved exclusively for the community of its internet exchange point. By default, only members, partners, sponsors and guests invited by France-IX have the right to participate.
France-IX reserves the right to refuse any registration of a non-member.
