New Venue, Amazing Attendees, Great Sessions, Lots Of Fun
S4x23 took place at the Loews Miami South Beach 13 – 16 February 2023. The numbers:
- Attendees rated S4x23 a 9.2 on a 1 – 10 scale, and a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of +70.
- A record and sell out crowd of 1105 attendees.
- 217 women a record number, still only 20% of attendees. Some work left to do.
- 28 countries represented.
- 77% US attendees, 23% non-US (a bit more US centric than past years)
- 70% had not attended S4x22. Over 50% were first time S4 attendees.
- 64 speakers on 3 stages over 3 days.
- 46 were first time S4 speakers.
- And the Loews said S4 attendees drank more coffee than any group they had before.
S4x23 Event Videos
We believe the great work of the S4 speakers should outlive their onstage performance. So we go to great efforts to provide a great stage, lighting and AV to record the sessions. The Main Stage is a 5-camera shoot, Stage 2 is a 4 camera shoot, and Stage 3 has three cameras. All of the videos are put up on the S4 Events YouTube channel. This channel also has videos going back to the inaugural S4 back in 2007, as well as short highlight clips from recent years.
The S4x23 Main Stage videos are also below, and the Stage 2 and Stage 3 videos are at the bottom of this page for your convenience.

New Venue for S4x23
Loews Miami Beach
The home of S4 since 2016, the Fillmore Miami Beach, will be closed in 2023. We will miss the theater and stage, and we think we have an even better location … The Loews Miami Beach.
- It is in the same area of South Beach, 16th and Collins, two blocks from the Surfcomber.
- It is large and can house the growing event.
- It is beautiful. Since this is a not a historic building, it has been updated to be larger, more modern and more luxurious. And we got an amazing rate for you.
- There is plenty of room for the three stages plus additional rooms for sponsors, special events, Pwn2Own and other things.
- One of the biggest complaints we received from S4x20 is the distance between stages. The Loews addresses this as all three stages are within a 15 second walk of each other.
- They have great amenities: pool, ocean activities, spa, fitness room, world class seafood restaurant, and a kids program if you bring the family.
