Convention Policies

Please read before coming to the show!

Code of Conduct

Attendees must respect common sense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. Harassing or offensive behavior will not be tolerated. The MCBA reserves the right to revoke admittance, without refund, to any attendee not in compliance with this policy. Persons finding themselves in a situation where they feel their safety is at risk or who become aware of an attendee not in compliance with this policy should immediately locate a member of security, or a staff member, so that the matter can be handled in an expeditious manner.


Costume Weapons Policy

No functional weapons are allowed at MSP ComiCon.


Simulated or costume weapons are allowed as a part of your costume, subject to prior approval by security and compliance with the following:


    -    All costume weapons must conform to state and federal law.

    -    Projectile costume weapons must be rendered inoperable.

    -    Costume swords must be tied to your costume in such a way that they can't be drawn.

If you are not willing to comply with these policies, please do not bring your costume weapons to MSP ComiCon.


Please be aware that, due to safety reasons, no handcarts, trolleys, rolling luggage, or oversized strollers are allowed in the Exhibit Hall.


No Paging

Please keep in mind that there will be no personal pages over the P. A. system. Set a time and place to meet with your family and friends and communicate with them via text or phone when necessary.


No Pets Allowed

If you have pets please leave them at home. The Convention Center will not allow animals into the building, except for service animals.


No Smoking

No smoking is allowed at any Convention event at any time or in any location. You are welcome to step outside to smoke in designated smoking areas, but please be considerate of others when you do. This policy is in place not only for the comfort of attendees but also to comply with city ordinances prohibiting smoking at public events. Please comply with this policy; noncompliance may result in being ejected from the convention.
