In order to keep the hallways safe for all attendees, please be aware of the following:
- Line ups for all panels and events will begin 30 minutes prior to the event start, unless specifically posted outside the room. Events with exceptions will be things like the Masquerade, the Ohayocon Dance, etc. ALL other events and panels will be enforcing the 30 minute line up. Attendees will not be permitted to loiter around line up areas. If you are found hanging around waiting, you will be asked to leave the area. Don’t spend your con in line! Go find something fun to do, make friends, do anything but try to make lines!
- All panel & event rooms will be cleared after each event. If you wish to attend the next event in the room you must exit and join the line to re-enter. This gives people waiting in the hall for the event a chance to attend. If you were in the room previously and the event reaches fire code capacity you will not be allowed back in. Any event at capacity will have an overflow line allowed to wait 15 minutes after the event start. As people leave the event, those in the overflow line will be allowed inside. After 15 minutes no more overflow will be permitted and attendees will need to leave the area so the line for another event may start.
- For all panels marked Adults only/ 18+ rating, you must present a valid photo id or 18+ wristband to enter. No Attendees under the age of 18 will not be permitted into these events, even with a parent or guardian in attendance.
- Please follow the instructions of Panel/ Room staff. Staff wants to get everyone into the room and seated as quickly and easily as possible and have made plans to do just that. If you cannot follow the instructions, please do not ruin the event for other attendees. Issue or concerns can be brought to the Live Events Ops room at any time.
Ohayocon wants panels and events to be fun for all so remember to relax and have fun no matter what you choose to attend.
