Are additional tickets available?

Unfortunately, we do have to limit the number of passes for Sponsor Team Members working behind their tables, because we only have a limited number of tickets available in total and we want as many attendees as possible to be able to come visit our amazing sponsors.

While employees are welcome to purchase tickets at market price and attend the conference as regular attendees; we ask you to be considerate in limiting the number of people you bring to work the event to the number allotted by your sponsorship level.

We appreciate your consideration in this matter.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in sponsoring this event and if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the Sponsorship Committee at sponsorship@rochestersecurity.org with any questions.
