Columbus Hacker Convention


614Con is an Information Security practitioner conference held annually in Columbus Ohio. Founded in 2014, attendees are always offered an array of educational experiences through hands-on villages, capture the flag (CTF) challenges, scavenger hunts, Packet Wars battles, amazing talks, and general networking opportunities. Anyone with a curious thirst for knowledge is welcome: hackers, defenders, makers, breakers, tinkerers, and hobbyists.

614Con is held at Actual Brewing Company, only minutes away from the John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH). From out of town? Recommended Hotels (~6 minute drive away)

Hilton Garden Inn Columbus Airport Hotel

Well… staying near the airport is probably not a great representation of all the things this town has to offer, mostly because we intentionally aim for a post-apocalyptic feel for all the hackers that attend, but if you have some time, checkout our beautiful city:
