Code of Conduct - Armageddon Expo
Code Of Conduct
Armageddon Expo is New Zealand’s ultimate entertainment event, featuring gaming, fantasy and multimedia events for the whole family. We aim to offer a fun-filled convention experience with something for everyone in the family to enjoy, in a safe and comfortable environment.
Attending any Armageddon Expo event means that you agree to comply with all rules and policies regarding the safety of all attendees, including this code of conduct. All attendees of Armageddon Expo are expected to treat other attendees, guests, staff and the general public with respect.
Physical, verbal and sexual harassment and assault of any kind will not be tolerated, and we will take all offences extremely seriously. We have a zero tolerance anti-harassment policy for all those who attend our shows. Transgressors will be dealt with accordingly, including the potential to be removed from the convention. Examples of harassment include physical assault, battery, deliberate intimidation, stalking and unwelcome physical attention.
All Armageddon Expo staff go through training prior to every event.
Cosply And Photographers
At Armageddon Expo, many of our attendees enjoy cosplaying at our events. As standard attendees, we expect the same appropriate behaviour from cosplayers to those who are not cosplaying. Alternatively, cosplayers are not there for the general public’s enjoyment. Unwanted photographs and attention are not permitted under any circumstances.
If a cosplayer/attendee refuses a request for a photograph, that is the cosplayer/attendee’s right, and everyone must respect that. If people tell you “no” or to leave them alone, your business with them is done. Leave them alone. Do not follow them or attempt to disrupt their convention experience in any way. If you continue to attempt to have contact with those people, you may be removed from the premises.
