ROOTCON is known for its contest quality, high-caliber technical speakers, and affordability. They have been able to bring to the Philippines credible and sought-after speakers that other groups have not been able to get. At the same time, the organizers have been successful in keeping access to the conference affordable for the hacking community. This balance between content and affordability is the reason ROOTCON has been consistently a huge success. Their sponsors also play a key role in keeping this balance.
