Any info on the 2020 Congress?

Any info on the 2020 Congress?

 

Many of use need a long lead time to get funding approved, and session information (fee/location/etc) soon (before mid-February) would be very helpful in selling it to our leadership for approval.

I would suggest basing your funding request on the 2019 Congress program. If you stay at the conference hotel expect to budget $$$/night accordingly; otherwise, explore many of the offsite options $$/night that are closer to Disney. I expect the 2020 tracks to be similar, but that remains to be seen. It is a safe bet that the 2020 will be the biggest and best attended conference ever! Watch for the (ISC)2 Congress Team @Tim_ISC2 to talk it up this spring/summer as we get closer to the event.

Re: Any info on the 2020 Congress?

As found on the event calendar (all hail Google), November 16-18 at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando Florida.  From the "selling it" perspective, I would use the 2019 details until such time as the 2020 information is released.  

 

(ISC)² has previously announced intention to keep it in Orlando going forward for logistical reasons -- their offices are about two hours drive away and Orlando has lots of sufficiently large venues plus a well-connected airport.

Re: Any info on the 2020 Congress?

Agree on using 2019 costs, although with enough pre-planning, one might be able to find a hotel close to the venue (this Hyatt is right on International Drive so not a bad walk or trolley ride from other hotels).

 

Current posted rate at hotel is $307+$25 resort fee + taxes. However, I did find hotels in the area for about $160 a night (how long they will last is hard to say).

 

(ISC)2 has a contracted rate but not sure how much it is.

 

Am hoping to attend and look forward to meeting some folk there.

Thanks for chiming in with the information.  The only information missing is the cost of the hotel per night.  Not sure you are at liberty to share that information but it would help when building the business case for the event.....

 

Best

*****UPDATE BELOW*****

 

 

Hi everyone,

 

I’ve just received an update regarding pricing for 2020 Security Congress conference passes - there will in fact be a change to the pricing structure which may include a cost increase for certain pass types. However, we are still aiming to provide (ISC)² members with discounts on passes and will certainly share more details as they are finalized and ready for registration.

 

I also wanted to share an estimate for the Hyatt Regency Orlando’s room rate. Though the reservation portal is not yet available, the estimated cost will be in the ballpark of about $270.00 USD (+tax) per night.

 

We will surely keep you informed as additional updates transpire.
