WHAT IS APAC DIGITAL IDENTITY UNCONFERENCE?

The APAC Digital Identity unConference brings together leaders who are implementing and consuming digital identity across the APAC region to foster innovation, collaboration and  interoperability across the public sector, private sector and civil society.   

Why an APAC Region Specific Digital Identity Event?  

While the European Union (EU) is laying down a solid regulatory and technical foundation for the digital future of the entire region with eIDAS and the EU Digital Identity Wallet, what could be an effective approach for the many interconnected economies in the APAC region?

One cannot answer this question without engaging a wide range of stakeholders, including competing vendors, into ongoing constructive dialogues. We provide a venue where such conversations and debates, rather than rehearsed keynotes or panels, happen and evolve.

By using the particularly generative event format of an Open Space unConference this type of constructive engagement is made possible. It’s all about exploring the many topics with professional peers from a range of identity areas. We will have the best facilitators in digital identity here to help you take charge of the experience by co-creating the agenda live at the beginning of each day. Click here to learn more.

EVENT BACKGROUND

The APAC Digital Identity unConference is an Internet Identity Workshop Inspired™ Regionally Focused OpenSpace Unconference.  The two facilitators and producers of IIW, Kaliya Young, also known as the Identity Woman, and Heidi Nobantu Saul collaborated with a local partner Newlogic to host and produce the first edition of APAC Digital Identity unConference in Bangkok in March 2023.
