We support face to face conversation about internet-wide digital identity and it’s implications. User-centric identity has been a topic of particular interest. This twice a year event aims to support the whole marketplace, especially individuals contributing their voice in open inclusive conversation. These events have a reputation of being incredibly effective for getting real work done and moving the industry forward.
