If you bought an E-Ticket from our website, you should print the ticket in order to avoid long lines! If you have it on your mobile, please have it ready for checking. You might be required to present an ID Card, but your data will not be stored.

 
2.      Wristband Points

If you already own or you just bought a General Access Ticket, head to B3 Hall, where our SuperVolunteers will rip the ticket and will put a wristband (bracelet) on your wrist. We use this system so you can enter and exit the Halls as many times as you would like. As you enter B1, our SuperVolunteers will provide you with a guidebook containing the maps and timelines for EECC.

Be careful not to tear the wristband apart!!! If you do rip your wristband, you will lose access to the event.

Do not play or do not tighten your wristband! Do not cut it! Do not offer it to anyone!
Also if you bought an “All 3 days ticket” you will receive ONLY ONE wristband for all 3 days. The wristbands are made out of Tyvek material and they are waterproof and very resistant.

Each of the 1 Halls at Romexpo will have ONE ENTRANCE and ONE EXIT. You might have to show your wristband each time you enter one of the halls. To avoid any inconvenience, please make sure you only use the ENTRANCE to enter the hall and the EXIT to exit the hall.

Weapons Policy

It is forbidden to wear or use weapons or replicas inside and outside of the halls unless they are blunt. Any usage that causes damage to anyone or any object will be your responsibility and you will be punished according to the Romanian Laws.

In other words, keep your swords and knifes into their sheaths, or any other sharp objects away from people.  The SuperParamedics  that will be present at Comic Con may use their healing  power but sometimes they are just not fast enough.

NO GUNS AND NO RIFLES ARE ALLOWED UNLESS THEY ARE PLASTIC REPLICA! AIRSOFT MODELS MUST HAVE A ORANGE CAP ON THE MUZZLE AS WELL NO GAS OR BATTERY!!! GAS OR BATTERY WILL BE CONFISCATED AT THE ENTRANCE AT ANY TIME THE AUTHORITIES CAN DECIDE TO DROP BY AND DO A CHECK, IN WHICH CASE THEY WILL NOT ALLOW ANY TYPE OF REPLICA.

Any weapon carried by anyone inside the Autographs, Photo Ops or Panels Area, will be confiscated by security services. All the other weapons sold inside the festival, must be kept in their boxes!

Kids at East European Comic Con

The festival will have some areas that are not suitable for children, so any person under 14 should be accompanied by an adult. We highly recommend that parents attend the event along with their kids; after all, it can be fun for everyone regardless of their age.

Kids under 6 years old are granted free access ONLY if they are accompanied by a parent that bought a ticket for him/herself. The rule is simple, 1 adult with a ticket + 1 kid, 2 adults with a ticket each + 2 kids, 3 adults with a ticket each + 3 kids.

If you lose your kid we’ll try to help you find him, but in order to prevent this kind of situation you should set up a meeting point just in case you get separated! Our SuperVolunteers can use their X-Ray vision to scan for the kid in the crowd, but you know how busy superheroes are.

First aid

In case of someone feeling faint or getting hurt, contact the SuperParamedics located outside and inside the B1 Hall or the medical service at 112!

Animals

Animals are forbidden at the event, unless they are trained assistance dogs.


*An assistance dog is a dog trained to aid or assist a person with a disability.

Lost items

During the festival, found objects are brought back to the information desk (INFO POINTS) which keeps them until the end of the festival. If we find the lost objects, we will keep them until after the event, to allow you to get them back.

You just have to send us an e-mail ([email protected]) with a precise description allowing us to identify the object you lost. Then we’ll get back to you.

If items are still unclaimed, 3-4 weeks after the event, we’ll post a picture with them on Facebook.

Parking at Romexpo

Our suggestion is to leave your car at home as the parking can be at sometimes full. Romexpo has a parking lot but they charge you 3Ron/hour. It’s up to you where you decide to park, but be careful if you park on Bulevardul Expozitiei as the local authorities will pick up your car in less than 10 minutes.

East European Comic Con is a private event, failure to comply to the above rules will undoubtedly result in loosing access to the event, in which case we do not reimburse you for the ticket!!!
