Event description

Description

A BSides conference is an information security conference by the community for the community. It follows a traditional conference format but encourages participation, discussion, and collaboration.

BSides Winnipeg 2017 is a two-day conference running from 10am to 7pm on November 4th & 5th. It will be organized as a single track on the top floor of the King's Head Pub. The list of speakers can be found online here.

Please note that each ticket for this event will come with two meals (one each day), and a t-shirt.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Due to being held in a pub, all attendees must be at least 18 years of age.

Why is the cost of the Regular tickets $22.19, wasn't it only $20.00 last year?

EventBrite takes a portion of the money we collect, and the extra $2.19 offsets that. This allows us to put the full $20.00 per attendee toward food and t-shirts.

What's the deal with these extra types of tickets?

We plan to always offer the option of attending for $20, but every year several people contacting us asking to personally donate above and beyond the cost of a regular ticket. Since the cost of running the conference is roughly triple what the regular tickets bring in, we have created additional ticket types so that those people that want to help fund the event can do so.

All of the [block] tickets are gone! Do you have any extra?

Remember that the last two BSides Winnipeg event sold out, and we're expecting this one to as well. If one block of tickets (e.g. Regular) runs out but there are still unsold tickets in another block (e.g. I Love BSides!) then we will eventually transfer the unsold tickets between blocks. We'll only do this when we feel confident that nobody is going to buy the unsold tickets in their original block, however. Watch @BSidesWpg for updates.

My company sponsored the event, how do I get my Sponsor ticket?

For each sponsor, a number of Sponsor tickets are allocated. We will be emailing the associated Sponsor ticket to the person we have been coordinating with for each sponsoring organization. If you're unsure who that is, email us at organizers@bsideswpg.ca and we'll help sort it out.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Street parking is limited, but there is a parkade at 100 King St., less than a block from the event.

Can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Of course, email us at organizers@bsideswpg.ca with your questions.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Presenting a printed ticket at the registration desk is the quickest and easiest option, but if you forget we can match your photo ID against our registration records.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

If you show up with a printed ticket, then we don't care about the name on the ticket. But if you don't have a ticket and are attempting to register via photo ID, we'll need to have been notified beforehand by the ticket's original owner emailing us at organizers@bsideswpg.ca.
