IDENTIFY is Ping Identity’s annual conference held in select cities around the globe. In 2017, we’re bringing together our customers and partners in London, New York, and San Francisco for one-day events packed with keynotes, panels, and workshops. This year, we’re focused on how enterprises are improving security, increasing employee and partner productivity, and providing seamless customer engagement.

What’s the agenda format?

We’re hosting three tracks focused on learning about the Ping product and customer successes, optimizing your Ping implementation, and innovating with new deployment scenarios and use cases.


Who attends IDENTIFY?

IDENTIFY is attended by hundreds of identity and security professionals, architects, developers, CISOs, and other line-of-business leaders interested in learning about and sharing their experiences with Ping’s solutions.


Why speak?

You’ll get the opportunity to grow your visibility in the industry, build on your speaking experience, and share your expertise with your peers. Speakers are also invited to join us for an exclusive dinner with executives from our enterprise customers and the Ping leadership team.


What’s the commitment?

After you’re confirmed to speak, we’ll connect with you for a brief phone call to provide more context and answer any questions you may have. If you’re presenting as an individual, you’ll prepare your slide deck and share it with the Ping team. In the week or two leading up to the event, we’ll have a 15-30 minute check-in call to run through your content and make sure you’re prepared. During IDENTIFY, you’ll speak for your 30-minute session.


If I’m selected to speak, how do I prepare for my session?

The Ping team is available to work with you to refine your content in the months leading up to the event. If you’re participating in a panel, we’ll also share a list of questions you can expect during the Q&A.


Do we have to officially endorse Ping?

Not at all. We're only interested in learning about your experiences, challenges, and stories around managing identities and how you were able to achieve success. Your perspective on this can help give other attendees insight into your lessons learned, and open up discussion around how others have addressed similar issues.
