Columbus Hacker Convention


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

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)

Hampton Inn Columbus-Airport Hotel
4280 International Gateway, Columbus, Ohio, 43219

Hilton Garden Inn Columbus Airport Hotel
4265 Sawyer Road, Columbus, Ohio, 43219

Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbus Airport Hotel
300 International Gateway, Columbus, Ohio 43219

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:
