About us

Who are we and what is Alpine Privacy Days

Why this conference?

We want to create a setting where professionals can mingle and explore in a low-key manner, but with fantastic lecturers, an amazing venue and a great agenda. No fancy hotels, no expensive gala dinners - just great exchange of knowledge and fun.

Not for profit, but for you.


What some of the earlier participants have said about Alpine Privacy Days:


I liked the small interactive group, high level of professional discussions, well selected topics and speakers. 

Alpine Privacy Days gives you interaction between speaker and audience. The fact that the number of participants isn't too large makes it possible to get to speak with, and get to know, everyone.

Alpine Privacy Days got the experts, the location and the atmosphere.
