CRA acquired the event from Ping Identity in 2021, and is committed to growth and expansion of the program, content, attendees and sponsoring enterprises. “The acquisition cements Identiverse’s position as the leading industry event serving the identity community,” says John Del Mauro, EVP at CRA. ”We’re proud of the work we have done since we acquired the amazing Identiverse brand, and the partnership with Liminal is a natural fit for us – they too are passionate about the space, have deep experience in identity and business development, and they’re eager to work with us to bring even more value and innovation to the show.”

“We’re excited to partner with CRA and the Identiverse franchise,” says Travis Jarae, CEO Liminal. “We have always respected the event and recognize its importance to the community, and we’re delighted to partner on adding value. Initially we’ll focus on developing a more expansive list of speakers and topics from areas such as brand strategy, innovation and startup, policy and fintech.”

"Digital identity is at the heart of our digital-first economy, powering better customer experiences and more effective workforce solutions, while enabling enhanced cybersecurity and privacy," said Andrew Hindle, Conference Chairman and Head of Content and Strategy for Identiverse.  "It's more important than ever for technologists to share best practices; and for business leaders to add digital identity to their strategy.  We are delighted to partner with Liminal as we augment the Identiverse offerings to better serve the industry over the coming years."
