NYCC Rules

  1. You must wear your badge at all times (and around your neck) while at NYCC.
  2. Be nice and have fun! All of your fellow NYCC con-goers are there to have a good time, so be friendly, make a new best bud, give a free hug and have a paramount good time at NYCC! Any behavior that's offensive in public should be kept out of NYCC and in the privacy of your own home.
  3. We don’t want anyone to trip and get hurt from stumbling over your outstretched feet, so grab a chair instead of the floor to rest.
  4. NYCC Staff and Security have the right to ask you to leave NYCC and refuse to refund the cost of your badge if you are behaving in an inappropriate fashion or seen with a counterfeit badge.
  5. Naked is not a costume. Please wear appropriate (or at least enough) clothing while attending NYCC.
  6. Please abide by our weapons policy. In the harsh reality of our times, our security staff and local law enforcement officials will treat anything that looks like a real gun as a real gun.
  7. While we don’t want anyone to lose anything, NYCC is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged property, or for injuries sustained during the course of NYCC.
  8. Please do not abuse the convention facilities. This includes putting signs on walls or trash anywhere other than a garbage can, smoking in non-designated smoking areas, amongst a variety of other things.
  9. Announced events and guests are subject to change and/or cancellation without notice. Every effort will be made to announce any changes on the NYCC website, Official Mobile App and Social Media channels, but sometimes last-minute changes will occur.
  10. Now a word from legal...By purchasing a badge and in consideration for being admitted to NYCC, the holder consents to being recorded (by audio, visual and/or other means) for exhibition and exploitation by any means in all media now known or hereafter devised worldwide in perpetuity. In other words… NYCC attracts local, national and international press. By attending NYCC, you give your consent to be photographed and appear on camera.
