COVID-19 Mask Policy
In order to provide the safest event possible for all who attend, everyone is required to wear an approved face covering / mask while attending the 2022 NWI Comic-Con (NWICC). The safety, and the well-being of our creators, exhibitors, VIP guests, staff and the many people that come together to create this event, always comes first. We appreciate your understanding.
This face covering / mask policy applies to all attendees, including cosplayers, exhibitors, VIP guests, artists, and staff. We will continue to evaluate the Northwest Indiana Coronavirus pandemic situation and post updates as they are available. Please be aware of and respect the personal boundaries of your fellow attendee, exhibitors, VIP guests and staff so that everyone can enjoy their time at the 2022 NWICC.
For Cosplaers, this face covering / mask policy also applies to cosplay and costume pieces. Face coverings must be visible at all times. For this reason, headwear and cosplay pieces which cover the face in a manner which does not visibly fit the face covering requirements will not be allowed.
COVID-19 Pandemic Refunds. We will be offering exhibitors and attendees who purchase online tickets, refunds if the event is canceled due to the pandemic. In the event that the 2022 NWICC is postponed, you can receive a refund (minus the credit card processing fees), upon request. However, if 2022 NWICC occurs as planned in February (which we fully anticipate happening), our traditional no refund policy stands and tables fees and online ticket sales will be non-refundable.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation, and we look forward to seeing you at the show!
