19. I’m concerned about safety at the con. Is there a harassment policy?

Our policy on harassment at our conventions: We do not have a cosplay harassment policy—we have a people harassment policy. Whether you are dressed in a costume or in street clothes, we will not tolerate anyone causing you distress at our events. Our conventions are all about inclusion: bringing people from different fandoms and backgrounds into one event, where anyone, no matter who they are, who they are dressed as, or what they are into feel excluded from any part of our show.

If you feel harassed or threatened by any attendee, please notify a member of our staff immediately. We have a great security team who will help you. We will also have uniformed police officers on site to assist with any matters. If you intend to cause trouble at one of our events, please know that we will immediately remove you with no refund. If there is further incident, we will have you punished under the full extent of the law.
