Biometrics Institute Congress and side events

22 October 2024-23 October 2024

London, UK (in-person event)



Our next Congress will be held on 22-23 October 2024 in London with side events across the week of 21 to 24 October 2024.


The Biometrics Institute is respected for its balanced discussions between very different stakeholders to find ways by which we can create a better and safer world through the use of biometrics. 

The Congress attracts over 250 delegates including representatives from government, the user community such as retail, banking and aviation as well as biometric suppliers and academics. 

The event will be held under Chatham House Rule and will be off-the-record (no media) to facilitate open dialogue between our members and stakeholders.

We will be releasing more information shortly.
