Video & Audio

With the exception of press and TSOK, NO video recording devices are allowed in the speaking rooms. Any person found filming any of the speaking sessions will have their video equipment confiscated and will be removed from the hotel grounds.

If you wish to obtain audio or video of the speaking sessions, professionally recorded audio and video tapes are available from The Sound of Knowledge. Look for their table in the vendor area or order from them on-line after the show (you get a nice discount for ordering tapes onsite during the show). Past material is also available from them.

Hotel Info

The Alexis Park Hotel and Resort is across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel, and is a block off the main strip. Located at 375 East Harmon Ave in Las Vegas, NV 89109. The Alexis Park is a non gambling hotel, so people 18 years and older can get a room there.

For DEF CON 11, to be on the hotel property you MUST have a DC 11 badge. This is a requirement of the hotel to cut down on locals just "passing through", and causing problems.

Toll-free reservation line 1-800-582-2228. You must call in order to make reservations- online booking is NOT available for the con. You must tell them you are attending DEF CON in order to book a room.

See a listing of con room rates at the Alexis Park.
