Northern Europe 2022 IAM Conferences Overview

After two long covid years it is once again possible to meet up with your IAM industry peers. If you are US-based you have had Identiverse® and Gartner IAM to enjoy, but even for the people that are based in the EU, there are a wealth of choices.

In the Netherlands we have the annual IdNext event running on September 27 and 28 in Utrecht. The theme this year is “Decentralized identities in practice” and if this piques your interest, please take a look at the agenda:
