Call for Speakers Now Open

The IAPP Asia Privacy Forum was a sold-out success last year. We gathered at the spectacular Marina Bay Sands hotel to listen to regulators and leading APAC experts from around the world who presented their views on critical current issues like data protection regulations and cross-border data transfer issues.

The world is in flux today and the coming year presents a whole host of challenges in protecting citizens’ rights while complying with increasingly complex regulations. We return to Singapore on 24-25 July to face down these issues—and more—and we’re counting on you to help us shape the programme. What’s on your desk today? What are your concerns for tomorrow?

This year, the Forum topics are coming from you!

Submit your proposal on a topic you view as critical or emerging, and the themes of the Forum will develop from the best submissions we receive. You’ll help drive the programming of the event if your proposal is accepted.
