Sponsor FAQ

What is the hotel address?

The Tuscany Suites & Casinos 255 E. Flamingo Rd. Las Vegas, Nevada 89169 Telephone: 877-TUSCAN1 or 702-893-8933

What are the attendee numbers for BSidesLV so I know how many swag items to send?

We’re planning for a total of 3000 attendees over the course of two days.

Are you able to tell me the attendee names, demographics, or company names?

We don’t collect this information from our participants. Any “leads” are generated by folks coming to your booth and providing information or business cards directly to you. We respect our participants’ privacy and never collect information during registration. We can say we get a good cross section of researchers, analysts, executives, C-levels, students and infosec enthusiasts.

What are the table sizes?

Two 6′ tables (in an ‘L’ shape) for Diamond, one 8′ table for Gold, and one 6′ table for Silver

Are there restrictions for the booth setup?

Yes! The tables are set up against the walls to keep foot traffic moving freely, so your representatives will be standing in front of the table, directly engaging the attendees. Floor signs are allowed behind the table or on top of the table, but not in front of it or to the side. Please do not bring signage or other props that extend beyond the length of your table as the space can be very tight! We do not have the space to store items during the event. There is some space beneath each table, but we recommend your representatives use their hotel rooms for storage (just as we do ourselves).

Where should items be shipped?

All items must arrive at our storage facility by the Friday of the week before the event. Anything arriving after that may not be transported to the event in time. Shipping address will be provided in a separate email upon request.

To ensure delivery, please make sure to include the following on the packing slip and somewhere visible on each box:

“ATTN: [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if it is destined for your Sponsor table (Diamond, Gold, and Silver only)

“ATTN: BSLV BAG SWAG – [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if it is destined for the swag bags handed out by registration (we pack those on Sunday afternoon before the event) (Diamond, Gold, and Silver only)

“ATTN: BSLV Silent Auction/Raffle – [YOUR COMPANY NAME]” – if its destination is the Auction/Raffle tables (Diamond, Gold, and Silver only)

You are more than welcome to ship directly to the Tuscany, but you are responsible for any storage or handling fees and shipping. Also, please understand that if you ship to Tuscany, we cannot confirm delivery before we arrive on site. If something is waylaid, we won’t have time to track it down.

Please contact the Tuscany directly for any questions about shipping to them.

How can we have our booth items shipped back?

Please note that BSidesLV does not coordinate outbound shipping needs. Your onsite staff can make accommodations directly with the Tuscany to ship any items out. There are also UPS and Fedex stores in the general vicinity of the Tuscany. Any items left behind will be considered abandoned.

What is the dress code?

It is generally casual. Mostly t-shirts and jeans, with a smattering of polo shirts and slacks and a few suits.

How will we find our table?

All sponsor tables are in the front half of Middle Ground (Florentine C/D). The tables will be labeled with your organization’s name prior to your arrival.

When and where does setup take place?

Sponsors can access the event space early at the following times: Monday from 15:00 to 18:00

Tuesday and Wednesday from 07:30 to 08:30

Set-up will be in Middle Ground (Florentine C/D), in the main area of the conference center.

What are the times that our booth will need to be staffed?

Your table should be staffed during the entirety of the event – 08:30 to 19:00 Tuesday and Wednesday. We understand that events overlap during this busy week, but it may reflect poorly on your organization to have an empty table among other staffed tables.

Are there times when the booth will be busiest?

Historically, it is a fairly constant flow. Middle Ground is the hub of BSidesLV. People pass through multiple times during the day and it is a focus of socializing and networking.

Will we have electrical connection and wireless access?

Yes, there will be power to each table. If you require anything beyond what is considered usual, please make arrangements directly with the Tuscany hotel. WiFi will be available throughout the conference space. There will be multiple wireless networks, including a dedicated WLAN for Sponsors.

What if I need additional A/V equipment?

Please contact the Tuscany directly for equipment rental.

Is there a BSides Las Vegas logo available for co-branding?

Yes! We have Hi-Res versions of all our logos available for co-branding. The generic BSides Las Vegas logo can always be found at this link. Please contact the sponsor team directly for the logos that change each year.
