Call for Sponsorship

Christchurch Hacker Con (CHCon) is a conference for security professionals and hackers. This is the first of its kind in Christchurch (that we know of), but certainly not the first in NZ. The timing of CHCon is purposefully close to that of Kiwicon, to make things easier for international speakers and trainers who wish to be involved at both conferences. We will be charging a small fee for those wishing to attend the conference. CHCon requires sponsor support to help be an instructive and quality event for the Canterbury & NZ community. CHCon is not for profit. The sponsorship money will be used to help make CHCon an informative, educational and fun event for all attendees.
