  • Important Update: DEF CON China 2.0 on Hold

    In light of global precautions being announced to combat the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve decided to postpone DEF CON China 2.0. We regret inconveniencing any of you. Know that we are committed to holding the event once it’s safe to do so.

    If you want a refund on purchased tickets, please submit a refund request to your ticket broker. If you'd rather that we hold your reservation for our new dates, you don't have to do anything and we'll keep your tickets on file.


    The situation is still developing. We’re working to find alternative dates for DEF CON China 2.0. Keep in touch with us on social media and defcon.org. We’ll share our plans as soon as we’re able. Feel free to comment here on the forums, too.

    Our hearts go out to our many friends in the affected regions. We encourage everyone to stay safe, and we look forward to reuniting when this is behind us.

    Once the spring festival is over in China and people are back to work late next week we will start analyzing our options. Esentially they are : Move later this year or jump to next.

      Perhaps the China Conference should be cancelled for this year. A lot of fear is out there worldwide, and since China was Patient and Ground Zero for the COVID 19 virus, some would think that this virus could mutate. Just some thoughts from someone who is at risk due to age and attended DEFCON since X at Alexis Park. Cheers!

        We are in continuing conversations to see what is even possible. The business climate has deteriorated in China, much like everywhere else, and all the conferences that could have relocated to the end of the year.
