We are incredibly excited to finally get back together and celebrate all things comics and pop culture with our Tampa Bay Comic Convention friends and family. As we have gotten closer to our event on July 29-31, our community has understandably had questions related to our health and safety guidelines for the upcoming show. We hope all of our guests, attendees, staff, vendors, and “heroes” feel as safe as possible while attending this year’s event.
In that spirit, while attendance requirements will always be in flux during these uncertain times, we would like to share a few important updates regarding our health and safety protocols inside the Tampa Bay Convention Center:
1. Hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout
2. Masks will be encouraged, but not required for all attendees, including guests, attendees, staff,
vendors, and “heroes.” We still ask that those who are not vaccinated wear a mask.
We were also pleased to learn that the Tampa Bay Convention Center achieved the Global Biorisk Advisory Council Accreditation (GBAC) for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. It is the industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation. GBAC STAR enables facilities to create and maintain an organized, effective approach to work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems to control risks associated with infectious agents, such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. More information about this topic can be found on the Tampa Bay Convention Center website.
We are committed to the health and safety of our attendees and will continue to follow the necessary protocols and the latest health precautions. With the fluid nature of these times, please follow our social media pages and website for the most up-to-date information
on our health and safety guidelines and, as necessary, any adjustments made closer to or during the Tampa Bay Comic Convention.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at General Support
*Please note that all guidelines are subject to change.
