We all had a blast at Istio Day Europe in April. The event was incredibly well received, but organizers and attendees alike felt that a half-day was not enough to showcase all that Istio has to offer. Due to the overwhelming response, we are glad to share with all of you that Istio Day North America is going to be a full-day event, co-located with KubeCon North America in Chicago.

Submit a talk

We now encourage Istio users, developers, partners, and advocates to submit a session proposal through the CNCF event portal, which is open until August 6th.

Accepted speakers will receive a complimentary All-Access In-Person ticket for all four days of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.

Register to attend

Istio Day is a KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America CNCF-hosted Co-located Event. In-person KubeCon + CloudNativeCon attendees have the option to buy an All-Access ticket which includes entry to all the CNCF-hosted “day 0” events, as well as the main three days of the conference. You must be attending KubeCon to attend Istio Day, but virtual registration options are available, and the recordings will be posted to YouTube soon after the event.

For those of you who can’t make it, keep your eyes peeled for announcements of IstioCon 2023 (Virtual) and Istio Day China.

Stay tuned to hear more about the event, and we hope you can join us in Chicago for Istio Day!
