Queercon 16 returns to the AP

We are pleased to announce the new location for Queercon 16, which also happens to be an old location. That’s right, this year we’re kicking it old school and going back to where it all began, the Alexis Park! We are taking over the entire resort and this year the Alexis Park will be the new Diversity Resort for hacker summer camp. Having the expanded space will allow us to amp up our program, bringing you more content, more events, and bigger parties. Alexis Park has, count them, THREE pools available to us for our most popular pool party.


We have also partnered with several other like-minded groups to host their events at the Alexis Park so you’ll have more options all in one place.


We will be running a free shuttle from the front door of the Alexis Park to Bally’s to make it easy for you to get from your rooms and events to DEF CON and back, so you don’t have to deal with taxis or ride shares if you don’t want to.


We have worked with the Alexis Park to offer you great room rates and a wide variety of room types. A standard room with the Queercon rates this year is an average of only $97.00 per night! (plus taxes & resort fees). Included with the room rate are: 


  • Newly remodeled suite including mini-fridge, and microwave
  • Free complimentary hotel wifi
  • Complimentary self-parking
  • On-property restaurant (with extended hours to support all your late night cravings)
  • Early access to Queercon Badge Registration

PS - You may recall that we announced at the end of Queercon 15 that we will be at The Palms for Queercon 16. Since that time, some changes have occurred with the hotel property that made us rethink the decision.
