Party Policy: We encourage open parties, however parties in a room not in the party block will be shut down. Open parties (parties with an open invitation to all attendees and with an open door) may not serve alcohol. Closed parties (parties by invitation only and with a closed door) must make alcohol service arrangements with the hotel.

No Eating or Drinking by customers in the Bookshop


Flyers may be posted on the Readercon schedule tower which is located in front of the main panels spaces. Please do not cover flyers already placed by others.

Flyers may not be posted on hotel walls unless they bear the Concom stamp of approval. To have your flyers approved, bring all copies to be posted to the information table for review. If approved, we will stamp them and provide you with hotel-approved adhesive materials and a list of places where flyers may be posted. We will aggressively hunt down and remove any unapproved flyers. Please do not staple flyers to hotel property or use adhesive materials other than the ones we provide.

Hospitality Suite – Room 630

Our Hospitality Suite (or Con Suite) is in Room 630 again this year. Take the elevator to the 6th floor, turn left out of the elevator, left again, and Room 630 will be on your right.


Readercon has always had a zero-tolerance harassment policy. Until recently, we did not feel it necessary to call attendees' attention to the details of this policy — but now we are being explicit.

Harassment of any kind — including physical assault, battery, deliberate intimidation, stalking, or unwelcome physical attentions — will not be tolerated at Readercon and will result in permanent suspension of membership.

As always, Readercon reserves the right to strip membership at its discretion.

The Open Source Women Back Each Other Up Project

Readercon has always had a zero-tolerance harassment policy. In an effort to improve this policy we have adopted goals of The Open Source Women Back Each Other Up Project, which works to make help against harassment visible and available, to create safer environments, to help women support other women, and men to challenge other men. We want sff, anime, comic, and other cons to be safer spaces for women and any other group who feels threatened.

Some women at Readercon will be wearing stickers that say, "BACK UP"; they are there to help anyone who feels they are being harassed. You may also ask any concom member for help at any time. If you want to know more about this, ask at Information, Diane Martin, Adina Adler or visit
