When and where is it on?
HoshoCon will be taking place October 9-11, 2018 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
How many years has it been going?
This is the first year that HoshoCon is happening, and the first conference of its kind.
What was the inspiration to start it?
With blockchain technologies, the repercussions of a hack are much greater than in traditional technology, not to mention the regulatory or legal implications that are emerging every day. HoshoCon will raise awareness and encourage executives to take the necessary security measures to protect their products and services from hacks and better manage their risks as the technology continues to flourish.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
In addition to keynote speakers and presentations by industry-leading experts, HoshoCon will have a 25,000 sq. ft. exhibition space, and a dedicated developer-focused track including panels and workshops.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
The event will bring together prominent names in cybersecurity and blockchain, making it the only place to learn key insights in each industry. Additionally, the conference will have a hackathon facilitated by multiple winners and organizers of elite DEF CON competitions, as well as a mentorship program aimed at connecting mentors and attendees for one-on-one sessions, all followed by nightly entertainment.
