SPONSORS and/or VENDORS and/or ADVERTISERS:
CarolinaCon is an annual conference in North Carolina that is dedicated to sharing knowledge about technology, security and information rights. CarolinaCon also serves to enhance the local and international awareness of current technology related issues and developments. CarolinaCon also strives to mix in enough entertainment and side contests/challenges to make for a truly fun event.
Admission to the conference is $20 at the door (no pre-registration). For your $20 you will receive conference admission and a cool CarolinaCon badge. In past years we've also given away magazines, bumper stickers, shot glasses, and free food with the cost of admission. There's no telling what we'll be giving away this year so you'll have to attend to find out.
We will also be selling t-shirts at the conference but a price for those shirts has not been determined yet. You can expect to pay similar prices to what other conferences charge for their shirts (~$20).return to top
Side events? As in more than just talks! You betcha! As events are decided and plans made, they'll be posted. Stay tuned!

CarolinaCon was started in 2005 and has been held every year since. With each passing year the conference continues to grow and attract more attendees and speakers. As has always been the case, CarolinaCon is put together and run by an all-volunteer staff. CarolinaCon is proudly brought to you by "The CarolinaCon Group". The CarolinaCon Group is a non-profit organization registered in the state of NC, dedicated to educating the local and global communities about technology, information/network/computer security, and information rights.
The CarolinaCon Group is also closely associated with various 2600 chapters across NC, SC, TN, VA, LA, DC, GA, PA and NY. Many of the volunteers who help develop and deliver CarolinaCon come from those chapters.

What events will be at CarolinaCon?
CarolinaCon is mainly about the educational talks, presentations, and demos. Alongside those we will have several other technology-related contests and challenges. Details on other events will be announced on our website as they are planned out.
Can my company sponsor CarolinaCon?
We don't accept any, so don't bother asking. Capitalism and philanthropic knowledge-sharing don't mix in our opinion. We keep our admission price to the bare minimum to cover our venue and equipment expenses. All of our staff are volunteers who generously donate their time and energy. All of our presenters generously donate their time and talent. The only items sold at CarolinaCon are a limited quantity of single-design CarolinaCon t-shirts....and we only make and sell those because attendees and staff want them.
What about donating to CarolinaCon?
Well that's a different story. We will gladly accept donations from anyone who wants to contribute. At CarolinaCon, we pride ourselves on not charging a lot for admission so we don't have a lot to spend on giveaways (we manage though). We can always use prizes for Hacker Trivia and various other contests that we run so if you want to donate an actual prize, rather than cash, just let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll also take cash. :-)
