Here is what you need to know about S4x25 in July. Remember that S4x25 is moving to Tampa and will be at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street on Feb 11 – 13th.

Call For Presentations (CFP)

The CFP opened on June 17th and will remain open until August 31st. All the details and links to the submission form are available at the S4x25 CFP page. We highly recommend you watch the video on the page to improve your chances of being selected.

Submit your session early. We review proposed sessions as they come in and have already accepted 8% of the sessions that will be on a S4x25 stage (note there is a progress bar on the CFP page).

Ticket Sales Begin On Sept 16th

Why is this important? Tickets are priced based on the ticket number you purchase, see the S4x25 Tickets page. We hold the ticket #1 price for the first 36 hours, even though we typically sell 500+ tickets in that time. This is to be fair to all time zones and avoid a crush of trying to get in the first 100 ticket block.

If you buy your ticket in the first 36 hours you will pay $1,645+tax. If you buy it after that you will likely pay at least $550+tax more.

The good news is the larger venue in Tampa means we don’t need to set ticket limits by company.


We will be hosting two-day training courses the two days prior to S4x25 (Sunday, Monday) and the two days after S4x25 (Friday, Saturday). We are in the process of selecting these courses. If you have a course you would like to propose, or attend, contact us at

Sponsor & Sponsor Package Update

The interest in sponsoring S4x25 was early and strong again. You can see the Sponsors, open sponsor packages, and sponsor package information at the S4x25 Sponsor page.

The big packages are sold out. There still are spots reserved for smaller vendors as well as room in the Vulnerability Management Pavilion (if you have an applicable solution) and the Startup Pavilion (if you will be raising money in the next 18 months).
