Queercon 2017

Queercon 14 Las Vegas July 2017

Come join all your favorite hackers for DEFCON 25.  Once again Queercon has a large room block with discounted rates and puts you in the center of all of the action.

Queercon starts on July 27th and runs through July 30th.

Whats included in your Queercon Room: 
Besides a great room at Bally's in the dedicated Queercon Floors, you also get access to all of the Queercon Events, including the Welcome Reception and Closing Party, without the need to get on any special lists.  You also get early access to reserving your Queercon 14 badge.  Lastly, you get to help us continue to run Queercon, without your support by booking into our room block we would not be able to host the number of events we do each year.  Your support is greatly appriciated.

Q: I thought Queercon rates are discounted, but the rates seem higher than orbitz or expedia?

A: The Queercon rate is an all-inclusive rate for the room, if you book directly with the hotel or through another 3rd party, the rate will not include the Las Vegas hotel taxes or resort fees.  WIth our rate these are already included

Q: I thought DEFCON was at Caesers this year? Why are the Queercon rooms at Bally's

A: Correct, DEFCON is at Caesers this year, however Queercon was not able to get the amount of rooms for our entire room block at Caesers.  We are keeping the rooms at Bally's for this year, however most of the Queercon events, including the Queercon Suite will be at Caesers, so you can still enjoy all of the events at the DEFCON hotel.

We appriciate your patience with our new booking system, it has the best results when using Google Chrome, but should work in other browsers as well.  If you run into any issues, please contact us at [email protected] or you can call our reservations department at 1-888-679-3670
