In just a couple of weeks, thousands of industry professionals and security experts will gather to present new research, discuss the latest trends and mingle with the industry’s elite in Las Vegas. Among them will be a handful of CHEN PR’s clients – some will be speaking on hot topics like diversity in hiring and container security; while others will be hosting happy hours or showing off their products in the exhibition hall.

If you’ll be hitting the Vegas Strip on August 3 – 8, 2019, be sure to say hello to our client roster, and CHEN PR partner, Kevin Kosh! Below here is an overview of where you can find everyone the week of Black Hat 2019.
