Biometrics Institute Congress 2021

6 October 2021-27 March 2022

On demand

If you missed the fantastic discussions in our eight sessions of Congress, you can now watch our global community share and debate via the on demand recordings. Please email Nicky to find out how to get access.

The date for the Congress in 2022 has been set so please mark your calendar. We are looking forward to seeing you in London on the 26-27 October, 2022.


The Biometrics Institute Congress is the industry gathering for the biometrics community globally. For the past 20 years the institute has been leading the debate about the responsible and ethical use of biometrics in a global and diverse stakeholder community through a balanced discussion.

This event is the opportunity to come together, share knowledge and experiences, discuss new trends and shape the future of this industry responsibly, in a trusted environment.

Following our members feedback on international travel restrictions and our role of bringing our global community together, we have decided to hold the 2021 event online and return to the QEII Conference Centre in London in 2022.
