All tickets to this event are NON-REFUNDABLE unless the event (the total event) is cancelled. This is part of your Terms and Conditions.

Will my photograph be taken or will I be filmed?
By attending Edinburgh Comic Con you are agreeing that Hero Conventions and select members of the press can use your image within their media production.

Can I take photographs and video?
Not only are you are permitted to take photographs/video in all public areas of the show, we actively encourage it.

However, please make yourself aware of the following rules:

1. Outwith sessions such as guest panels and the cosplay competition, you must seek permission from the subject(s) before commencing. Should your subject request to see the photograph/footage taken, you must oblige without hesitation.

2. Under no circumstances will it be acceptable to take photographs or footage that compromise the dignity of the subject, such as shooting up a skirt or kilt. Anyone found guilty of such actions will automatically be barred from our events for life, and we will co-operate with the authorities to have you prosecuted within the full extent of the law.

3. Any and all equipment must be held by the photographer/videographer. You can not use free standing equipment unless it is part of an exhibition space with all the required paperwork being completed. This also applies those in possession of a press pass, as this does not grant you permission to set up a studio under any circumstances.

4. The use of any power sockets within the venue requires written permission from the event and will likely be a chargeable service.

6. Unless you are a paid trader with an exhibition space, or have valid written permission from an authorised member of Edinbugrh Comic Con, photographs taken at our event may only be sold to press outlets. Should you be found to solicit your photography services to the general public for financial reward without a valid exhibition space, you shall be charged a £500 fee for commercial photography.

Do guests charge for autographs?
Any charges for autographs is entirely at the guest's discretion, with costs usually being highlighted on that particular guest's page.

Is there a cloakroom at the event?
There will be a functional cloak room during ECC 2018, with each item costing £1 each.

Will there be food and drink?
The venue has cash catering and a bar on site, with additional seating available for attendees.

Is Edinburgh Comic Con disabled friendly?

Are guide dogs welcome?
All registered guide dogs, hearing dogs and medical alert dogs are welcome at our events. All we ask is that other attendees respect both the dogs and their owners, while being courteous at all times. We do not permit other dogs or pets to enter our events.

Are your events noisey?
Our events can be busy and noisy, which may potentially be overwhelming for those with sensory issues. We advise that you perform your own risk assessment before entering the building.

Will there be queues?
Due to the very nature of our event, there will be queues throughout the show. These will be present from entry, to guests queues, panel area, photobooth and food kiosks.
