We’re pleased to announce a speakers and facilitators for our full day #NAMAprivacy conference, focused on the Future of User Data, being held the India Habitat Centre in Delhi on the 6th of September 2017 (tomorrow). Given that we’re looking at data usage from multiple perspectives, with the intent of gaining a deeper understanding of issues. This discussion is supported by Google, Facebook and Microsoft.

The enthusiasm for this discussion is fairly significant: we’ve never had to close registrations this quickly, and never had this many people in the waiting list. Our apologies to those who couldn’t be confirmed.
