From the casino entrance, turn left, go past the bar and up the escalator (elevators are back behind the escalators).
From the hotel entrance, turn right upon entering, use the elevators on your right to go the 2nd floor. Exit to your left and continue down the long hallway, making a right and then a left, until you reach the main conference area (florentine a-g). If you have a large amount to bring upstairs, or over-sized items that need a service elevator, please let us know so that we can make arrangements for you to use the loading dock.
Please ship items, with insurance and tracking, to arrive by Friday August 3rd 2018.
Address will be provided in a separate email upon request.
To ensure delivery, please make sure to include the following on the packing slip and somewhere visible on the shipping container:
“ATTN: [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if it is destined for your Sponsor table
“ATTN: BSLV BAG SWAG – [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if it is destined for the swag bags handed out by registration (we pack those on Sunday afternoon before the event)
“ATTN: BSLV ROOM HOSTS – [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if it is something we need to hand out/throw-out between tracks
“ATTN: BSLV Silent Auction/Raffle – [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if its destination is the Auction/Raffle tables
You are more than welcome to ship directly to the Tuscany, but they will charge you for handling and storage, per package, by weight. If shipping to Tuscany, please ensure no items arrive prior to 3 days before the event. Also, please understand that if you ship to Tuscany we cannot confirm delivery before date, so if something is waylaid we won’t have time to track it and ensure its delivery. You can view pricing & the hotel package policy here.
Please note that BSidesLV does not coordinate outbound shipping needs. Your onsite staff can make accommodations directly with the Tuscany to ship any items out; note that there will be handling charges incurred that you will need to pay directly to the Tuscany. If you want to avoid the charges, there are UPS and FedEx stores in the general vicinity of the Tuscany. Any items left behind after three days will be considered abandoned.
It is generally casual. Mostly t-shirts and jeans, with a smattering of polo shirts and slacks and a few suits.
All sponsor tables are in the front half of the Chill-Out Room (Florentine C/D). The tables will be labelled with your organization’s name prior to your arrival.
Please be sure to reach out to all your business and personal contacts and tell them about BSidesLV! You can also send employees that aren’t staffing your table to volunteer.

We don’t collect this information from our participants. Any “leads” are generated by folks coming to your booth and providing information or business cards directly to you. We respect our participants’ privacy and never collect information during registration. We can say we get a good cross section of researchers, analysts, executives, C-levels, students and InfoSec enthusiasts.

Sponsor Badges will allow your delegates early access to the Chill-Out Room for set-up and tear-down, one hour before doors open and one hour after. Participant Badges will not. Our Safety and Security Team will also question anyone working your booth with a Participant Badge if there is no one present with a Sponsor Badge to vouch for them. Please provide any delegates who will be working your table with a Sponsor Badge. Participant Badges are intended for your guests and invited clients, as well as an option for those companies that would otherwise have more Sponsor Badges than they do employees attending the conference. Sponsor Badges also indicate to our Participants that you have made an investment in BSidesLV and that you would like to be approached for conversation about your company. If you find you have more badges than you need, consider offering them up through your Twitter or other social media accounts to potential participants. We have found this is a great way to engage your audience prior to the event. Or you can donate any extra Participant badges back to BSidesLV and we’ll give them away in your name.
Your Registration code will be used for both badge types – your company representatives and any guests that you’re inviting, if you have badges that are not needed for your representatives. Please remember that the number of badges registered cannot exceed what was purchased as part of your sponsorship, unless you purchase additional badges through the Sponsorship Team. They are available for $1,000 each, if needed. When you access the Registration website, you will need to register a name for each badge and whether it will be a Sponsor or Participant. We do need you to register your guests, so we can ensure that your company’s specific registration code isn’t passed to unauthorized persons.
Sending high energy folks to staff your table would be great. Please consider sending more than two representatives each day, if possible, so they can work in shifts and avoid burn out.
