Airport Shuttle Service to DEF CON 22!

It’s a known fact: Vegas cab drivers can be … indirect. Even worse, it’s a real challenge to keep a cab smelling daisy-fresh in 110 degree heat. So how does one get from the airport to the Rio without taking an unnecessary tour of Henderson and baking like a potato?

There is a way.

We’ve partnered with LASxpress to shuttle DEF CON attendees from McCarran to their hotels, Rio and otherwise. It costs 11 bucks (18 non-stop), and has the benefits of meet and greet service and immediate boarding.

Of course, there is something of a vision-quest feeling to waiting around in the desert, sweating in a small space as you travel aimlessly throughout the universe. So, you can still do that, too.

If you’d rather try the shuttle route, just click here to register.

Maps to come...

The floorplan is still in progress, but we will post maps of the con space here when they are complete!
