FITF policies and guidelines are put in place to ensure everyone has an amazing weekend. Please read through the policies below, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at [email protected]
FITF strongly believes that all attendees, exhibitors and staff should be treated with dignity and respect. FITF has a Zero Tolerance Policy; acts of violence or sexual harassment will not be tolerated.
Any instances of violence or sexual harassment must be reported to security immediately. Show Management will promptly respond to any incident or suggestion of violence or sexual harassment.
FITF encourages all attendees, exhibitors and staff to exercise reasonable judgment in identifying potentially dangerous situations. Threats, threatening language, or any other acts of aggressions, violence or sexual harassment made toward or by any attendee/exhibitor/staff will NOT be tolerated.
For purposes of this policy, a threat includes but is not limited to any verbal or physical harassment or abuse, attempts at intimidating or instilling fear in others, menacing gestures, flashing of weapons, stalking, or any other hostile, aggressive, injurious and /or destructive actions undertaken for the purpose of domination or intimidation.
FITF expressly prohibits any acts or threats of violence or sexual harassment by any attendee, exhibitor or staff against another in or around the convention facilities or elsewhere at any time. All reports of violence or sexual harassment will promptly be investigated by show security.
If an investigation confirms that a threat of a violent act, or violence/sexual harassment itself has occurred, FITF will take swift appropriate corrective action with regard to the offending person, up to and including immediate discharge from the show and the facility in a permanent manner.
No functional weapons are allowed. Simulated or costume weapons are allowed as part of your costume, subject to prior approval by security and compliance with the following:
All costume weapons must be inspected at the Weapons Check Desk outside of the main hall.
All costume weapons must conform to Provincial and Federal law.
Projectile costume weapons must be rendered inoperable.
Costume swords must be tied to your costume in such a way that they can’t be drawn.
After each person’s costume weapon has been checked, it will be tagged by the staff, and you will be given a wristband to wear to designate that your weapons have been checked.
Security will escort you to the Weapons Check Desk for inspection if your costume weapon is not tagged. If you do not want to have your costume weapons inspected or tagged, of if you are not willing to comply with these policies, please do not bring your costume weapons.
