DEF CON Hacking Conference

Vendor Application

$$DEF CON 26 Call for Vendors$$

We are launching vendor applications four months earlier than ever because space is limited and wares spots are exclusive. We want to give as many people an opportunity as possible to submit for table space.

The DEF CON Vendor area has a long standing history of granting space to vendors that support hackers and hacking. We like community vendors, as well as those that sell unique or hard to find items. Vendors that do particularly well are those who sell items most people don't want to pay for with a credit card on Amazon. Lock picks, RFID cloners, WiFi pineapples, you get the drift. On the other-hand a table that sells "software as a service" is less appealing to us, we want our attendees to be able to visit your table and walk away gleaming with pride over something tangible or something they just did that supports the hacker community.

If this sounds like you, please fill out the following form, even if you've never been a vendor before.

Cut and paste the following into the body of an email and send it to vendors@defcon.org

The deadline to submit to become a vendor is April 1st.

Please see the vendor FAQ page for table prices & FAQ on Nevada Tax
