No Retail Sales Unless Exhibit Space Has Been Purchased
No retail activity is allowed anywhere during the Manga Comic Con event unless you have rented or allocated exhibition space. This includes exhibition grounds, common areas such as halls, rest areas, entertainment areas, F&B areas or external locations, such as the premises of the Sky Expo Vietnam International Convention and Exhibition Center, as well as any Manga Comic Con locations. Retail sales are strictly limited to exhibitors in the Manga Comic Con exhibition area. Also, do not ask for tips, fees, or donations for any reason, unless you have an official booth, table, or space allotted by Manga Comic Con.
For the safety of all, there is absolutely no running anywhere at Manga Comic Con. This includes the programming rooms, the hallways and lobbies, in our outside spaces, and in the Exhibit Hall at all times, especially in the morning when we first open the hall. We understand the urgency to get to a favorite booth (or music or cosplay program or event) right away, but running is a safety hazard for EVERYONE, not just the person running. People caught running may have their badges taken away from them and be ejected from the convention. Don’t run … it’s not worth it!
No Sitting in Exhibit Hall Aisles
By order of the fire marshal, no sitting is allowed in the aisles/exits of all areas within the Manga Comic Con event grounds. Lounges are located near the CHECK-OUT area, the private area for FAN-MEETING, the COSPLAY area, and near food concessions for your convenience.
Wanding and metal detectors may be used at some locations. Make sure to leave your drones, helium balloons, helium-filled products, fireworks, handcarts, trolleys, rolling luggage, and pets (excluding service animals) at home. Absolutely no functioning props or weapons are allowed. Only active on-duty police officers may carry firearms within the Convention Center. All other persons are strictly prohibited regardless of license or status.
Manga Comic Con Vietnam reserves the right to change or modify any policy or rule at any time and without notice.
