DEFCON 19 will be coming to the Rio hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
This will be our 9th venue in the nearly 20 years we've been doing this. How is the Rio going to work out for us? To be honest I really don't know. On the plus side, we have a shitton more room complete with gigantic hallways. On the negative side, it's a new hotel to us so I have no idea how we (staff and attendees) will mesh with them.
That said, planning has begun in earnest. All I can do at this point is make sure my team and I bring our A game to the table to make both the hotel and the attendees happy. Let's see how that all works out.
