  • Cellphones and other electronic devices must be silenced or turned off in programme rooms
  • Attendees must remain quiet during panels and not speak amongst themselves, except when participating in discussion with the panel
  • Parents with small children who misbehave, cry or become noisy must depart the programme room they are in as soon as they can.
  • Attendees wearing hats or tall costumes should remove them when sitting in a panel room, or sit near the back, so the view of other attendees is not blocked
  • When panel rooms have closed their doors due to hallway noise, attendees are asked to open and close the doors quietly
  • Attendees (including costumed attendees) immediately outside the doors to a programming room must keep their voices at a reasonable level so as not to disturb the programme
  • Attendees are asked to respect other attendees by not disrupting or intruding in their private conversations, videotaping/photography sessions, podcasting/recording sessions, or other activities
  • Unless otherwise informed, no attendee should take either a video or sound recording of any panel. There could be matters of intellectual property rights that you are not aware of.
Winnipeg is a very pedestrian friendly city. Visit the nearby Forks shopping and entertainment complex, where Winnipeg’s two rivers meet! And if you need some quiet green space, the sunken Japanese Gardens on Carlton Street, in the Lakeview Square Development, is within easy walking distance! The Japanese Gardens, inaugurated in 1974 to commemorate Winnipeg’s sister city status of Setagaya, Japan, are a lovely place to sit, reflect, and recharge!
