C2E2 has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to:

If a person engages in harassing behavior, C2E2 Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from C2E2 with no refund. Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Fans (Attendees), Speakers, Guests, Professionals, Press, Staff, Volunteers, and Security are all subject to our anti-harassment policy and will be held to the same standards and disciplinary action.
Anyone can report harassment. If someone’s behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact C2E2, Security Team or a Crew Member. You may also come to C2E2's Show Office.
If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of C2E2.
Remember: Cosplay is not consent. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another C2E2 Fan, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no. When at C2E2, be respectful, be nice, be cool and be kind to each other.
ReedPOP’s mission is to create a fun, safe, welcoming, awesome event where Fans of all kinds can come together and celebrate. We want you to not only have the most amazing weekend ever, but to experience it in an environment where you are safe and accepted. As Fans ourselves, we understand the importance of creating a safe space for everyone who attends C2E2.
