Adult Material

In the recent years there has been a large increase in the number of minors and families that attend anime conventions. So we ask that artists, particularly those with adult merchandise, please keep this in mind when setting up. Any materials that are sexually explicit, extremely graphically violent, or otherwise unsuitable for children MUST be displayed in a manner that keeps minors from seeing them. If we see it out in the open, or receive complaints, we will remind you about our adult materials policy ONCE. If you SELL inappropriate materials to minors, there is no "one strike" in this case. You will be removed from the Artist Alley.

The artist's liability shall include all losses, costs, damages, or expenses arising from or out of or by reason of any accident or bodily injury or other occurrences to any person of person, including the artist, its agents, employees and business invitees which arise from the artist's occupancy and use of the artist alley premises, the hotel, or any part thereof.
