“ShowMeCon was a great event! The keynotes were interesting and relevant. The venue was excellent as well. Really enjoyed the participating vendors, have to give a shout out to them for all the cool swag they handed out on top of the amazing prizes they gave away for drawings. From a networking prospective, couldn’t ask for better, met people from all over the St. Louis area, even some folks from different countries. Definitely plan on attending next year!  –  Eric F.

A successful talk at ShowMeCon will provide our attendees with interesting information that will help them in their careers.  This is an offensive security conference, we prefer talks that focus on understanding of current issues/vulnerabilities.  Defensive style talks are welcome.  Solution providers are welcome to submit talks however sales pitches are not welcome.

Sample Topics include:

  • Network Security
  • Web Applications
  • Social Engineering
  • Policy

Most important, ShowMeCon prefers speakers who will participate in the conference.  Feedback from our past attendees indicated some of the best information they received was when they were able to talk to the speakers outside of their official talks.
