Digital societies form when the physical and digital worlds collide, and the impact of digitisation cuts across every sector: healthcare, transport, government, education, etc. Managing digital identity is a vital foundation to build trust in the connected communities of tomorrow.

GSMA Mobile 360 Series – Digital Societies convenes key government and industry leaders, asking how best we can drive inclusive socio-economic growth, improve lives, and support sustainable businesses through the digitisation of society.

The event consists of a two-day thought leadership conference, organised by GSMA with support from regional government ministries, and includes keynote presentations, fireside chats, and in-depth discussions addressing the need for secure, manageable identities and responsible use of personal data within an increasingly connected world. The final day is comprised of closed-door meetings and workshops.

Join us at Mobile 360 – Digital Societies in Bangkok, Thailand on 5-7 September 2018. Register to attend at
