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.

EMEA Summit Theme

The theme for this year's summit is, 'EMEA Summit 2024: The Power of Collaboration.' This means submitters should incorporate collaboration in the foundation of their proposals. Examples may include panellists across industries or regions within a panel, focusing a round table on uniting different perspectives to adapt to change, or sharing research that empowers attendees to include new perspectives in their day-to-day work. These examples are included as inspiration, but submitters are encouraged to be creative with the theme.

The Programme Committee will prioritise three main subcategories within this theme, so please propose sessions that fit one of these three themes. As with the summit theme, the examples listed after each subcategory are meant to provide guidance; you are welcome to submit proposals similar to these examples or on any other topic as long as it’s connected to the theme.
