About The Event

TSPA Regional Summits are one day conferences dedicated to trust and safety professionals who are responsible for the challenging work of keeping our platforms and communities safe. Unlike the global nature of TrustCon programming, summits are focused on regional priorities. Summits support TSPA’s vision to create and foster a global community of practice among trust and safety professionals by centering each region’s concerns, priorities, diversity, and culture.

APAC Summit Theme

The theme for this year's summit is, "APAC Summit 2023: Shaping the Future," The Programming Committee will prioritize three main subcategories within this theme, so please propose sessions that fit one of these three themes. Note that the examples listed after each theme are meant to provide guidance; you are welcome to submit proposals similar to those examples or on any other topic as long as it fits within the theme.
