EGLX is dedicated to providing a safe space for all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, staff, and volunteers. Our policies are designed to promote and enforce this environment, and all persons present at the event are expected to do the same.
EGLX has a no-tolerance policy for any violations of this Code of Conduct which are judged to be severe or repeat offenses, and participants who do so will be removed from the event, forfeiting their pass without refund, and will not be permitted to return.
All Convention participants, guests, staff, and volunteers are expected to abide by this code of conduct.
We insist that everyone who uses the space remains mindful of, and takes responsibility for, their speech and behaviour.
We do not tolerate offensive behaviour, harassment, destructive behaviour, or violence.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour by our volunteers, security personnel, or staff is expected to comply immediately.
Anyone who engages in sustained unacceptable behaviour may be removed from the Convention, and will not receive a refund if so removed.
If you witness or are subject to unacceptable behaviour, please approach any of our volunteers, staff, or security personnel for help.
Your conversation will be held in confidence.
When you come to us with a problem during an event, it is our top priority to help you feel safe as quickly as possible. Then, we will warn or remove the offender depending on the circumstances, taking your and the community’s safety and wishes into account.
EGLX and its community values and recognizes diversity, and defends and builds equitable experiences. We are committed not only to including marginalized voices and bodies, but also to actively fighting racism, sexism, and oppression.
We welcome and advocate for the presence and contributions of all people regardless of their ability, age, body size, cultural background, education, ethnic origin, gender expression, gender identity, immigration status, language, marital status, nationality, physical appearance, political affiliations, race, religion, sexual orientation, sexuality, status as a parent, socioeconomic status, choice of video games, or other such factors.
Prejudice, oppression, and discrimination are detrimental to the health and growth of our community and the individuals who are a part of it. Supporting the visibility of our diverse lives enhances the experiences of all community members. We recognize and honour our differences and vigorously defend the convention as a safer and equitable space.
