Courtesy Policy

  • 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.
