Omni-con takes no responsibility for any damages incurred to property or person. If you cause a problem Omni-con has the right to eject you from the convention. Our venue is donated to us by the college treat it with respect.
While we want our cosplayers and congoers to feel free to express themselves there are dress codes in place due to it being on a public college campus. Our minimal dress standards are shorts for men and full-coverage bikini top and bottom for women, with shoes required at all times and no exceptions for cosplay in public areas. If doing a professional shoot let staff know so we can grant you permission for the no shoes policy.

Please, do not damage our venue and college property. Any damages or theft in a college area will be charged to the registered guest. If you are found sleeping in the public areas, you will be asked to go to your car or leave the event space. Omni-con’s venue is our partner in putting on our convention. Please, help us take care of our home so we can continue to produce a fun and affordable event.
