Distinguish the myths from realities
By attending this conference, you will better distinguish the myths from the realities, understand the new challenges and accompanying risks presented by privacy and data protection laws, and identify the new opportunities on the horizon. What are the implications for the way laws are interpreted and enforced by the regulators? How will you assess the impact on your company in different countries? Where is your room for manoeuvre? What does your organisation need to do to navigate your route through these challenges, conducting your business with one eye on your immediate operational needs and the other eye on the ever widening horizon?

Highlights from the Privacy Laws & Business 26th Annual International Conference
Bridging Privacy Cultures
40+ SPEAKERS IN 3 DAYS
The Privacy Laws & Business 27th Annual International Conference will feature more than 40 speakers and chairs from many countries over 3 intensive
days. Normally, around half of these speakers will be giving a presentation at this event for the first time.
At the world’s longest running independent international privacy event you are sure to gain professionally by networking with your peers. Many of the speakers attend the entire conference, providing you with an ideal opportunity to have direct contact with the key decision-makers, regulators, privacy lawyers, consultants and company privacy managers from many countries. Scan the horizon for new privacy issues and enjoy the unique summer school atmosphere.
Your suggestions will create the conference you want to attend
We invite you to propose subjects for sessions, offer to become a speaker, and suggest specific countries on which the conference should focus. We listen and, as we have done for the past 26 years, act on many of your suggestions, and bring you original presentations receiving their “world premiere”.
If you are a speaker, like every participant, you would pay the registration fee according to your sector and booking period (see below).
Conferences which give speakers a free place must attract their revenue from sponsors and exhibitors. PL&B’s success has been based on our independence, and neither sponsors nor exhibitors dominate the event. Conference participants tell us that intelligent vigorous debate on the issues with opinions from all sides is more stimulating and useful than a shallow consensus.
It means that we can construct the programme according to the merit of the ideas, and speakers may express their views freely.
Sponsorship and exhibition stands
Sponsors and exhibitors appreciate their high visibility. They know this event is not an exhibition with a conference added on. Their stand will have high prominence, and will be clearly seen.

“The Privacy Laws and Business Annual International Conference provides real depth and breadth on all the important privacy issues, and a chance to mix with many different industry specialists. As well as giving a thorough understanding of how the privacy world is today, it also (and more importantly) gives you real insight into where it is heading.”
Janet Lane, Experian, UK
"It was a fantastic conference - all the talks first class and the delegates all very knowledgeable. To come down to breakfast and sit between Jacob Kohnstamm [Chairman of the Netherlands Data Protection Commission and Chair of the EU Art. 29 Data Protection Working Party], and David Smith [Deputy Information Commissioner, United Kingdom]... highest quality privacy debate from dawn to dusk!”
Marcus Evans, Norton Rose Fulbright, UK
“Hearing from DPA’s/regulators and other countries – often we think something cannot be done and then we learn it is done elsewhere and works.”
“The conference was engaging, interesting and enjoyable plus a great opportunity to network
and pick up useful tips and guidance”
Helen Gourdin, DIAGEO, UK
"I think PL&B’s Cambridge event is unique... something for everyone at every level.”
Geraldine Henbest, Ernst & Young Global, UK
“Insightful presentations, a collegial atmosphere and thoughtful organisation of the event made for an enjoyable and valuable experience.”
