Australian Fandom Conventions attendees, staff and other guests are bound by the following Standards of Conduct:
Any action or behaviour that causes interference with convention operations, discomfort to other attendees, or adversely affects Australian Fandom Conventions’ relationship with its attendees, guests, its venues or the public is strictly forbidden and may result in confiscation of convention badge and immediate removal from the convention area, as well as suspension of attendance for subsequent years.
Respect everyone else’s right to enjoy ThronesCon. If you are found to be harassing anyone during the convention, your access to ThronesCon will be removed, and further tickets may not be sold to you for future events.
We define Harassment:
We do not offer refunds under any circumstances, other than that which is regulated by Australian Consumer Law.
We do not offer deferral of tickets from one year to the next.
You MAY sell your ticket to another person if you are no longer able to make the event, however you are not permitted to do so for a profit. Any tickets being sold for a profit may be cancelled under Australian scalping laws.
ThronesCon is a Provisional ALL AGES event! This means that anyone under the age of 16 can attend with a parent, guardian or supervisor present. We do however advise parental discretion. Game of Thrones is rated MA, which suggests that some content may not be suitable to children under the age of 16. Attendees under the age of 16 who are planning to attend must do so with a parent, guardian, or nominated supervisor.
No photographs or video are to be taken in signing or photography areas, except by official staff. Anyone found to be breaching this policy will have their access to ThronesCon removed immediately.
No filming is to take place inside the main stage and panel rooms at any time without written authorisation from Australian Fandom Conventions
No filming of photography is to take place of any individual exhibitor without their express permission.
If someone asks you to not take a photo of them, please respect this person’s wishes. If you do not, you will be in breach of the harassment policy.
Convention badges are a way for us to identify who should be within the convention space. If you do not have a convention badge on show at all time, and readily visible, you may be asked to leave the convention space, and purchase a badge should you wish further access to the event.
If your con badge is tampered with, defaced, or altered in any way, it will be void, and you will be required to purchase a replacement con badge.
If you lose your con badge, you will need to proceed to ticketing with your ID, and request a replacement con badge. A replacement fee equal to a day pass will apply.
Prop weapons are permitted, however we have the following, strict weapons policy:
You are not permitted to attend ThronesCon if you are under the influence of any illicit or illegal drugs. If you are fond to be using, dealing or taking any such substances, the police will be called, and you will be banned from further Australian Fandom Conventions events.
Alcohol purchased offsite may not be bought into the venue. All drink bottles and cups must be discarded at the entry point before accessing ThronesCon.
Alcohol and other food and beverages will be for sale inside the convention space, however drunkenness will not be tolerated. You will be asked to leave the convention space if you are under the influence of alcohol.
Acceptable, safe and non- offensive clothing and closed footwear must be worn at all times. While we encourage people cosplaying, we will not tolerate nudity on the premises. At a minimum, a shirt, pants and closed shoes must be worn at all times inside the convention space.
We have made our expectations for our SellSword volunteers very easy to remember. Our ABCDE’s for being a SellSword Verified Volunteer.
