Personal Interaction Policy

  • DO NOT touch another person, or his/her costume, without permission. Uninvited glomping, hugging, grabbing or roughhousing is dangerous and will not be tolerated. Repeat violators will be ejected from the convention.
  • Be respectful of others. No harassment, catcalling, verbal abuse or stalking will be tolerated.
  • Ohayocon is intended to be a safe space for all attendees, guests, and staff to come together and share. If you feel you are being harassed by any attendee, staff, guest, or member of the general public, please contact Security or convention staff and provide them with a description of the incident as well as the person, including what they wearing and the area it happened in. DO NOT engage in retaliation or in any way escalate the event.
  • You may not lead another person around with leashes, handcuffs, chains, ropes, or similar due to crowd control & the danger or choking or clotheslining yourself or others. Cosplayers may use items for photos (out of the flow of traffic) but must remove them when moving through the convention area.
  • Noisemakers- the hotel and convention center are public areas so nuisance noisemakers will not be tolerated. This includes vuvuzela horns, cowbells, kazoos, etc.
