We have limited attendance to 800 individuals across the entire weekend. All event spaces are reduced to 25% capacity and all seating is spaced 6 feet apart. Daily attendance is capped at 400 people per day (normally 8,000 or more).
We have provided all vendors and artists with hand sanitizing stations across the convention event. We require individuals to use hand sanitizer when entering any open space including our artist alley, dealers room, and game room. The venue and our staff sanitize each room between all events. All microphones are sanitized between users.
The seating chairs in all event rooms allow groups of up to four individuals from the same household to sit together, and all sets of chairs are six feet apart from any others. All vendors have been spaced out as well. Close contact events such as our dances will not happen.
