      IMPORTANT - APNIC 30 changes venue!

      APNIC 30 Bangkok
      ----------------
      
      After much consideration, the APNIC EC has made the difficult decision
      to change the meeting venue.
      
      The APNIC EC and Secretariat extend their thanks to TOT for its hard
      work and support of APNIC 30 Bangkok and deeply regret the situation
      has necessitated this decision.
      
      The APNIC EC emphasized that the safety of APNIC 30 delegates should be
      the organization's primary concern in staging the event.
      
      
      APNIC 30 Gold Coast - new dates and new venue
