We at Salt Lake Gaming Con strongly believe that all attendees, exhibitors, volunteers and staff should feel safe and comfortable at all times. We wanted to show you our updated harassment policy.
Salt Lake Gaming Con’s Tolerance Policy: Acts of violence or sexual harassment will not be tolerated. Any instances of violence or sexual harassment must be reported to the security office or a security staff member immediately. Salt Lake Gaming Con Management will promptly respond to any threat, incident or suggestion of violence or sexual harassment to anyone attending any of our events.
Salt Lake Gaming Con expressly prohibits any acts or threats of violence or sexual harassment by any attendee, exhibitor, volunteer or staff against another in or around the convention facilities or elsewhere at any time.
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.
Salt Lake Gaming Con does not expect volunteers or employees to become experts in psychology or to physically subdue a threatening individual. Indeed, we specifically discourage attendees, exhibitors, and staff from engaging in any physical confrontation with a violent or potentially violent individual. However, we do expect and encourage all attendees, exhibitors, and staff to exercise reasonable judgment in identifying potentially dangerous situations. Threats, threatening language, or any other acts of aggression, violence or sexual harassment made toward or by any attendee/exhibitor/staff will NOT be tolerated.
All reports of violence or sexual harassment will promptly be investigated by Salt Lake Gaming Con security. If an investigation confirms that a threat of a violent act, or violence/sexual harassment itself has occurred, Salt Lake Gaming Con will take swift appropriate corrective action with regard to the offending person, up to and including immediate discharge from the show and the facility as well as a possible lifetime ban from all of our future events.
