Mischief Management is dedicated to creating a fun, safe, accepting and welcoming space where fans can celebrate what they love. The safety and security of all attendees is of the utmost importance to us. Please read the below policies carefully before attending BroadwayCon.

Anti-Harrassment Policy

At BroadwayCon, the safety of everyone at the event is our first priority. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to: stalking, intimidation, offensive verbal comments, physical assault, battery, harassing photography or recording, continuous disruption of panels or other events, bathroom policing, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome physical attention in relation to, but not limited to: age, appearance, body size, gender identity or expression, race or ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

BroadwayCon is a private event, and as such, we reserve the right to remove any person from the event at any time. If a person engages in harassing behavior, BroadwayCon Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from BroadwayCon with no refund and contacting the appropriate authorities. Our policy applies to everyone at BroadwayCon, including attendees, exhibitors, speakers, special guests, professionals, press, staff, volunteers, and event security.

If someone’s behavior makes you uncomfortable, or if you witness harassment happening to someone else, you should immediately contact BroadwayCon Staff. BroadwayCon Staff will be designated by staff badges and red staff lanyards. You may also come to the BroadwayCon customer service desk to report an incident.

We ask that you abide by common sense rules to guide your behavior: If someone does not want to interact with you, don’t interact with them. If you do not have permission to touch someone, don’t touch them. We rely on your good judgement and respect for others and their property to create a fun and memorable event, and would hate for you to miss it, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these rules so that doesn’t happen!

IF YOU NEED IMMEDIATE HELP
If you feel like your safety or the safety of another person is at risk, then please don’t hesitate to notify a BroadwayCon staff member or security officer. You can also call the BroadwayCon Security hotline for immediate assistance at (646) 481-4438.

Weapons Policy

In order to maintain a safe space for all attendees and guests, Mischief Management has a zero tolerance policy for real weaponry. Real weapons of any kind are expressly forbidden on the premises of any Mischief Management event. (“Real weapons” are defined here as any object designed or used for inflicting harm on any person). This includes all firearms, martial arts paraphernalia, any knives larger than a pocket knife, and airsoft guns. This also applies to attendees who may have a permit or license to carry said weapon.

Any person found to be carrying a weapon of any kind may be required to turn over the weapon to the security staff and/or to have their ticket for the event revoked and to be removed from the event space.

BroadwayCon Cosplay Policy

By attending BroadwayCon, you agree that BroadwayCon and New York Hilton Midtown staff members, who will be clearly designated by visible credentials, may, at any time, inspect any costume, costume weapon, or other items you bring to BroadwayCon, and may remove any person from the event space for violation of this policy.

Please familiarize yourself with our Anti-Harassment Policy. We ask that you abide by common sense rules to guide your behavior. If someone does not want to interact with you, don’t interact with them. This also applies to attendees in cosplay. Always ask before taking photos of or with another attendee, and respect your fellow attendees’ right to say no. If a person engages in harassing behavior, BroadwayCon Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from BroadwayCon with no refund and contacting the appropriate authorities.

We understand that our attendees may be cosplaying as characters who carry weaponry. All attendees agree to abide by our Weapons Policy as well as any policies enacted by the VENUE. Prop and/or costume weapons are permitted at BroadwayCon as part of a relevant costume. However, all prop weapons must be:

A. CONSPICUOUSLY FAKE
If your costume weapon looks realistic, federal law requires that it be either translucent enough that the inner mechanics are visible, or at least half-covered with solid white or bright red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or pink.

B. CLEARLY SAFEGUARDED
Different styles of props will have different needs. Below, please find a non-exhaustive list of ways in which to safeguard your prop weapon.

  1. Bows and slingshots must be either strung with a material that cannot hold tension or completely unstrung.
  2. They may not have the capacity to fire a projectile.
  3. Arrows may not be tipped and they must be tied together and secured to the quiver.
  4. Any kind of knife, sword, or other prop weapon with a cutting edge may not be sharpened or have the ability to cut.
  5. Any projectile weapon must be incapable of firing.

C. TAGGED BY BROADWAYCON STAFF
Upon arrival, attendees who are wearing costumes that include prop weapons must have their weapons logged and tagged at the BroadwayCon Customer Service Desk.

After you check into BroadwayCon and receive your badge, please proceed to the Customer Service Desk. One of our staff members will examine your prop weapon, catalog it, and tag it with a neon cable tie. A staff member will be available to examine prop weapons at all times during registration hours.
