HEROESCON CODE OF CONDUCT

The HEROES CONVENTION is dedicated to providing a fun, safe, harassment-free convention for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

WE WILL NOT TOLERATE HARASSMENT OF ANYONE IN ANY FORM AT ANY TIME.

Any convention participant violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Heroes Convention, without a refund, at the discretion of the convention organizers.

EVERYONE IS SUBJECT TO OUR ANTI-HARASSMENT POLICY.

This includes: Artists, Attendees, Exhibitors, Guests, Press, Sponsors, Staff, and Volunteers.

If you are being harassed, have witnessed someone else being harassed, or have any other safety concerns, please contact a member of the Heroes Convention staff or a Heroes “Sidekick” (Convention Volunteer). The Information Booth, located at the main entrance of the convention floor, is ready to assist you or can quickly put you in contact with someone who can help. Notifying a staff member in a timely manner is the best way to ensure that harassments are addressed quickly and efficiently. We are happy to contact our security or local law-enforcement, and we can provide escort to a safe place, or otherwise assist anyone experiencing harassment to ensure that everyone feels safe for the duration of the convention.

ALL persons are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules for the duration of the Heroes Convention as well as at all related Heroes Convention events. This policy includes the Convention Center as a whole, and extends to all after-hours events at our host hotels and any other associated venues.

We are VERY PROUD of our Family-Friendly convention.
It is our policy that Artists and Exhibitors should not display images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths or artist table. We also discourage over-sexualized or excessively gory clothing/uniforms/costumes at our convention.

It is our wish that EVERYONE should feel comfortable at our show, and in an effort to make that possible, there are gender-neutral bathrooms available in the Professional Registration Office (Room 101) on the main concourse located on the College Street side of the Charlotte Convention Center.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding of the aforementioned policies. We are committed to maintaining a Family-Friendly COMIC-BOOK SHOW where EVERYONE feels safe and welcome for many years to come.

THANK YOU!
