About BSides Knoxville

For the local neighborly Scruffians, you know what you’re getting into. It’s a one-day conference that runs from 9 AM to 6 PM EDT. Normally, we host a speaker dinner at 6:30 PM, immediately following the conference.

For those of you that “ain’t from ‘round here”, don’t worry. Knoxville is a friendly, if scruffy, city and BSides Knoxville has a relaxed, come-as-you-are atmosphere. Here are a few quick facts about BSides Knoxville that set us apart from other security conferences:

  • We feed all attendees “breakfast” (usually donuts) and lunch.
  • Water, soda, and coffee are available for free all day.
  • Each attendee gets two tickets for alcoholic drinks. You’re on your own after that. Roughly half of the attendees don’t drink, so we’re working on a system where they can get some cool swag instead. We usually do nice coffee mugs and cool handmade posters.
  • Each speaker gets a personalized walkout song! We feel this is a great way to get the presenter and crowd pumped up.
  • Quiet, private speaker rooms are provided with extra snacks, drinks, and caffeine.

Tickets sell out every year (except for that one year we scheduled on the same day as CodeStock … oops).

The event will be held at Relix Knoxville , 1208 N. Central Street, Knoxville, TN, 37917
