Code of Conduct

General Rules and Info

There are a number of rules and information you should be aware of when attending ArmadaCon.

  1. Please wear your badge at all times, in plain sight; you need it to access convention spaces.
  2. Bear in mind that we're a family-friendly event; there will be children around. Keep it PG-13.
  3. We're not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged property, or for injuries sustained during the convention. We can offer sympathy though.
  4. We reserve the right to ask attendees to leave the convention, without refund, if they are behaving inappropriately.
  5. Events and guests are subject to change and cancellation. We'll do our best to warn you of changes via our website, Twitter, and Facebook, but sometimes changes will happen without notice.
  6. We love photos, but please ask your subjects for their permission first - it's only polite. Also, please be aware of the traffic around and do not block the corridors for extended periods. Please do not block doors at any time.
  7. Under-13s must be accompanied by their adult at all times. We want children to enjoy themselves, but we are not a crèche.
  8. Assistance animals are permitted in all public areas and at all times. No other animals will be permitted in the hotel.
  9. The hotel and convention rooms are a public space, and it is therefore illegal to smoke indoors. If you want to smoke, the hotel has a shelter in the car park for that purpose. This also includes e-cigarettes and similar equipment which the hotel classes as smoking.
  10. If you have any problems or requests with regard to the convention, your first contact point is the convention Registration Desk. If you have any problems or requests with regard to the hotel, your first point of contact is the hotel Reception Desk.

Anti-Harassment Policy

ArmadaCon is dedicated to providing a great convention experience for everyone, whatever their gender, sexuality, disability, physical appearance, body size, race or religion. For this reason, we will not tolerate any form of harassment of convention participants. Con participants found to be engaging in harassment may be sanctioned or expelled from the convention without refund.

Harassment can include (but is not limited to):

What should I do if I am being harassed?

In some cases you may find the harassment stops if you clearly say 'no', 'please leave me alone' or simply walk away. We would appreciate it if the registration desk was informed, to help us identify any repeat offenders.

If you continue to be harassed or notice someone else being harassed; please visit the registration desk or contact a member of the convention committee. Committee members can help participants contact the hotel or law enforcement (if that's what they'd like to do), provide a listener, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe during the Convention.

Costumes and Weapons Policy

We love costumes at ArmadaCon, and are very much looking forward to seeing all your amazing cosplay! Here are the cosplay rules to help keep things fun and safe for everyone.

Courtesy Policy

ArmadaCon hopes all our attendees abide by our Courtesy Policy, which is the exhibition of courteous behaviour to fellow attendees.

Hygiene Concept

As we are still mindful of returning after Covid first hit. We aim to make ArmadaCon as safe and relaxed as possible. As of now, there are no formal restrictions in England. With that in mind, please be aware of the following:

ArmadaCon want to make the convention as accessible to as many people as possible no matter what their situation.

Being a small convention, we are very adaptable; so please let us know if there is something we can do to help, and we will do our best to arrange it.
