HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES:

We hope you are all as excited as we are for the Heroes Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con coming up this November 6-7!

After much consideration, paying close attention to state and local guidelines, and in an effort to make our event safe and enjoyable for everyone in attendance, we will be requiring masks, as well as proof of an authorized Covid-19 vaccination, or a valid negative test result within 72 hours of entry.

This includes all ticket holders, vendors, artists, and staff. This will be checked on both days of the convention, and during vendor set up on Friday, November 5. Those who cannot produce either a proof of vaccination or a negative test result will not be allowed entry to the show.

Heroes will also require all convention attendees to wear a visible mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the premises of the Charlotte Convention Center. (Costumed attendees must also wear a visible protective mask covering the nose and mouth.) This is in accordance with the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners directive placed on 8/31/2021, which requires that masks be worn by all individuals indoors. This covers all areas of the convention center, including the entrances, concourses, convention halls, and loading docks during the event, as well as hours of set up and break down.

We ask that all attendees continue to be mindful of social distancing during this event. It is important to note that we will follow any and all updates to local Covid policies. Any updates in our policy will be immediately posted to our website and social media.

We appreciate your understanding, and look forward to a great Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con, and things getting back to normal as we head toward the 40th Anniversary of the Heroes Convention June 24-26, 2022.
