APAC Digital Identity unConference

Digital Identity.
One building block at a time.

1 — 3 MARCH


The goal of the event is to foster innovation and collaboration between emerging digital identity companies and projects across the APAC region.

unConferences are particularly generative, with a facilitator we will co-create the agenda live each day of the event. There are no keynotes or panels, it’s all about exploring the topic with professional peers from a range of identity areas. Click here to learn more. 
  • Who are the people?
  • What are the organizations?
  • Where are the things (products, commodities, shipping pallets) and where did they come from?
There are many reasons that secure identity systems are needed for connecting to others, tracking trade, supporting labor markets, crossing borders. Significant investments have been made into the development of interoperable standards, protocols, systems application layers, conceptual use cases, and more.


This event is for individuals, practitioners, researchers, regulators, implementers, government leaders, technologists, digital and privacy rights activists. A neutral event where people from a range of different standards, efforts and businesses can come together, learn from each other, build connections and move the work forward
  • Anyone who is implementing digital identity technologies, in government, enterprise and civil society
  • Startups working on emerging digital and decentralized identity technology
  • Enterprises who are exploring digital and decentralized identity technology

The APAC Digital Identity unConference is inspired by the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW). The two facilitators and producers of IIW, Kaliya Young, also known as the Identity Woman, and Heidi Nobantu Saul are collaborating with a local partner Newlogic to host and produce the event. It is being held at 19 Yenakart - Eatery & Garden , our Venue Partner.

19 Yenakart is an ever-evolving venue located beyond the hustle-bustle of Bangkok in a leafy corner of Sathorn. The 400-square-metre multi-functional space, with a shaded, spacious garden, is tailored to host all kinds of occasions and creative functions.

The time is right to host an event for the APAC region with the same Open Space unConference format that the Internet Identity Workshop uses. This event will bring together innovative startups and bold large companies who are building products and developing services using emerging digital identity technologies. One of the goals for the event is to foster a more connected ecosystem of companies working in the APAC region.

We look forward to seeing you in March 2023!
