Comicpalooza was committed to providing a clean and safe pop-culture convention for all fans, guests, exhibitors, volunteers, and staff. Behind the scenes, our team worked with four COVID officers that specialized in different areas within the industry and brought a breadth of expertise. While you may not have seen them, many of their recommendations were reflected in the layout and operations of the event. Additionally, the George R. Brown Convention Center has earned accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR™ Facility Accreditation Program - the industry gold standard of safe facilities.

Our health protocols included:

  • Face coverings encouraged for attendees who have not been vaccinated
  • Hand sanitizing stations situated throughout the event
  • Regular cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces such as handles, buttons, and handrails with EPA approved products
  • Plexiglass at specific locations throughout the show

Additional health and safety signage was placed throughout the venue, we asked that attendees be respectful and adhere to the specific guidelines of our guests, exhibitors, and others while at Comicpalooza. To learn more about each of our guests’ guidelines, click here.
