Attendees must respect commonsense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. Harassing or offensive behavior will not be tolerated. Comic-Con reserves the right to revoke, without refund, the membership and badge of any attendee not in compliance with this policy. Anyone making harassing or offensive comments including threats to other people are strictly prohibited from attending the event. Persons finding themselves in a situation where they feel their safety is at risk or who become aware of an attendee not in compliance with this policy should immediately locate the nearest member of security or staff member so that the matter can be handled in an expeditious manner.
The Information Desks are located in the lobby of the hotel near the entrance to the Gallery Room across from the hotel front desk in Cherry Hill, NJ and on the lower level to the right of the escalator in Hunt Valley, MD. During show hours you can always find a staff member or security guard at the Information Desks.
