Florida Supercon is working with the Emergency Operation Center for the City of Miami Beach to put together a comprehensive plan for improving the overall safety and security of every attendee. Supercon has always had a strong security presence at events, but it’s time to add additional measures.
Supercon and city officials fully understand that none of our fans or attendees are of any threat to anyone. We also appreciate that we have never had an incident in the past when we allowed fake weapons into the building. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, we have to eliminate all possible confusion about props and fake weapons.
Due to recent events, we have updated our policy to reflect a ZERO TOLERANCE for weapons of any kind. The City of Miami Beach owns the convention center, and they will not allow weapons even if you have a conceal and carry permit, even if you are an off-duty police officer. No weapons are allowed, period. Searches will be conducted if any bag or outfit presents as suspicious. Supercon staff will be on hand to help security understand the difference between a quality crafted costume and something out of place. Anyone not consenting to a search at the request of a security officer will be asked to leave without refund.
Everyone entering the building with a mask on will be asked to remove it upon entry. You may put it back on once you pass the prop check point. You will have to do this at both the convention center and the Fillmore.
