We pride ourselves in having a family-friendly convention and will not tolerate unacceptable behavior. Unacceptable behaviors include: vulgar, intimidating, harassing, abusive, derogatory, discriminatory, or demeaning conduct by any Attendees and Con Crew of Escape Winter Convention and its related events and functions. Some Escape Winter Convention venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations. Harassment includes:
- Offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability.
- Inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces.
- Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following.
- Harassing photography or recording.
- Sustained disruption of events.
- Inappropriate physical contact or unwelcome sexual attention.
Engaging in any of these acts puts you at risk for immediate removal from the convention, and a permanent ban from The Escape Winter Convention in the future. This goes for anyone regardless of gender identity.
