Once again, hackers from all over Latin America and the world will have the opportunity to catch up and learn about the latest research in cybersecurity matters. This year, Ekoparty will have a three day physical event!

Ekoparty has become the most important technical conference in Latin America, offering state-of-the-art talks about cybersecurity and delivered by renowned speakers all over the world. In this Metaverse edition, we are expecting to bring together more than 10,000 hackers.

For the last two pandemic years, we managed to adapt our content to present it in the digital world, a challenge achieved in more than 10 stages with more than 3,000 online attendees and more than 10,000 viewers on Twitch. But now… it’s time to go back to physical! and we are thrilled to share this moment with you!

In addition to the high voltage talks at Ekoparty, you can also enjoy some of our hacktivities, such as our thematic spaces for example: Lockpicking, Aerospace, Social Engineering, Radio Experimentation, Avoiding Jail, Red/Blue Teaming, DevSecOps, Mobile Hacking, etc.; Hackactivities for KIDS (ekokids), job interviews (EkoJobs), live performances, art installations, games, surprises and more.

Come join us in a WARDRIVING around the City, enjoy the WORKSHOPS, compete at the most important CAPTURE THE FLAGS in Latin America, and don’t forget to attend our amazing after parties and happy hours!
