DEF CON Registration

DEF CON is a hacker convention which takes place immediately following Black Hat in Las Vegas every year.

Upon purchase of Black Hat Briefings and/or Trainings passes, each registrant will also have the option to purchase a single (1) advance ticket to DEF CON 2019, at a rate of $300 per ticket, one ticket purchase per person, up until the close of "Late" registration on August 2, 2019 at 11:59 PM PT.

DEF CON tickets will not be sold on-site at Black Hat USA. After August 2, 2019, DEF CON tickets are only available for purchase at DEF CON during their ticket sales window.

Please note, you must first register and pay for your Black Hat Training/Briefings registration in order to purchase a DEF CON ticket. The option to purchase a DEF CON ticket is not available to individuals who purchase a Black Hat Business Pass only.

DEF CON tickets are non-refundable, once purchased. When you check in to Black Hat, you will receive a DEF CON badge voucher, and after DEF CON staff provide badges to Black Hat, you may then redeem your voucher for a DEF CON badge, generally on the Thursday of the event.
