Harassment Policy

AggieCon 47 is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, unwanted photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Violators of this policy will be removed from the Con.  Attendees may report any violations of the Harassment Policy to any person wearing a security or convention staff badge.

  • Certain areas of AggieCon require badges to ensure security of property and persons.
  • Children under the age of ten must be with their parents at all times. Those between the ages of 11 and 17 may roam freely, however parents/guardians are responsible for their children’s actions. If they break it, you bought it.

Cosplay

  • All weapons must be peace-bonded. Our security officers are capable of providing both assistance and clarification.
