  • Thanks again for the great nights. As my first Defcon and Queercon, I had the time of my life.

  • Queercon has done lots for making the DEFCON community more accepting of LGBT hackers. Woot!.

  • That there are more GLBT computer security professionals out there than I ever would have known. Thank you for showing me that there are more people like me out there :)

Frquently Asked Questions

With the rapid growth of Queercon over the past few years we are constantly having to change things in order to keep up with the growth. This year is no different, we listened to all the feedback we got from past years and in order to make some of the requests happen, we have to try new things. This year in order for Queercon to have space within the DEFCON host hotel there are a lot of changes.

Of course you can, but if you do you will not get any of the Queercon perks. We highly reccomend that if you want to be with the Queercon group and get all the Queercon goodies you book your reservation through us.

Because we wanted to have our room block this year at the DEFCON hotel we had to setup the room block in this way. Because DEFCON is so large and takes over the hotel the only way we could get a block of rooms for everyone was to pre-buy the block otherwise we risk the rooms being sold to other DEFCON attendees, and therefore selling out.

Why are the Queercon rooms more per night than the DEFCON rooms?

Most of the rooms that DEFCON is offering at Bally's are in their older non renovated tower. The rooms are very much 1990's Vegas style and dont have many ammenties. Additionally, the DEFCON rates do not include the manditory resort fee of $25.00 per room, per night. Queercon has taken the block of newly renovated rooms that we feel most people will enjoy more. The rates listed are all inclusive (room, resort fees, and taxes). Additionally, when you book one of the Queercon rooms, you get access to all of the Queercon events plus some other cool things that will be announced later.

With your Queercon reservation you get a garunteed room on one of the Queercon dedicated floors at Bally's. Also included is access to all of the Queercon events and you will have the opportunity to pre-buy and garuntee yourself a Queercon 12 Badge.

We understand that many of us travel to DEFCON for work and that your company has its own predefined hotel booking choices. If your company does allow you to book a room at Bally's please contact us via email booking@queercon.org and we can work with you to make sure you get your Queercon perks if possible.

The charge will appear as QCI

After final payment you will recieve an unbranded invoice showing the charges for the room just like any other hotel receipt. So unless your company has some extremely strange policy on receipts you should be able to use the final invoice receipt for your accounting department.

When booking with Queercon this year your room is booked and pre-paid for before you arrive in Vegas. There is a $200.00 non-refundable deposit required when making a reservation. 50% of the remaining room balance is due on March 15th. The final balance is due June 15th. For more information on the payment schedule and cancelation policeis please see the booking terms.

If you have a new credit card, or want to change the card that will be used for your payments, you can update your account information by visiting our Booking Portal.
