Tiki Kon Attendee Agreement

By attending Tik Kon (“Event”), you (“Guest”) agree to the following waiver and terms & conditions. If you purchase tickets/passes or reserve hotel rooms on behalf of other attendees, they are considered your guests, and you are responsible for providing them a copy of this agreement, and for their acceptance of and compliance with this agreement.

THE TL;DR VERSION

  • You release us from any liability or claims due to accident, injury, theft, etc.

  • You agree to be responsible and safe while at Tiki Kon.

  • You consent to information sharing between Hotel and Tiki Kon.

  • You understand that event schedule and presenters/performers may change due to events beyond our control.

  • You promise to keep private room parties private, not sell booze, and not serve minors.

  • You promise not to re-sell event merchandise for 4 months after Tiki Kon (the "no flipping" rule).

  • You understand you will be ejected and banned from Tiki Kon if you yell at volunteers or treat them poorly.

  • You consent to being photographed and/or recorded.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY

  1. Guest assumes the risks associated with alcohol consumption and takes full responsibility for his or her own actions, safety and welfare.

  2. Guest acknowledges and agrees that Tiki Kon shall not be responsible or liable for any accident, injury, theft, loss or damage whatsoever sustained by Guest in conjunction with any activity at the Event. Guest waives any and all claims against Tiki Kon.

  3. Guest understands that it is the Guest’s sole responsibility to be present at all scheduled points of departure at the times and locations provided by Tiki Kon, for transportation to off-site portions of the Event. Tiki Kon does not assume any responsibility or liability for any expenses incurred by Guest, direct or consequential, by reason of Guest’s failure to board Event shuttle buses for any reason.

  4. Guest understands that Tiki Kon cannot certify or guarantee the ingredients of any meals included in ticket packages. We will do our best to work with the Hotel to provide vegetarian and gluten free meal options, and to provide detailed ingredient lists upon request at the time of serving, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy of such. If you have critical food sensitivities, we suggest considering alternate dining options.

TERMS OF ACCOMMODATION

If you are lodging at the DoubleTree by Hilton (“Hotel”), the host hotel for Tiki Kon, as part of your attendance at Event, the following additional terms apply:

  1. You consent to allow Hotel to release your reservation and contact details to Tiki Kon, and to allow Tiki Kon to release your name and attendance information to Hotel.

  2. Prior to departure, you agree to pay all incidental charges made against your guest room.

  3. Hotel reservations may be canceled without penalty up to 72 hours before 4pm on your arrival date. Reservations not canceled before that time will be charged one night’s room and tax as a cancellation fee.

SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS

You acknowledge that event schedules, times, performers, presenters, and bar tour skippers are subject to change at any time due to conditions beyond our control. No refunds will be offered unless the show, presentation or other activity is canceled and removed from the event schedule. The refund will be equivalent to the canceled activity’s value within the context of a weekend pass package, as determined by the event organizers. If you purchased an add-on ticket for the canceled activity, the full purchase price will be refunded.

CODE OF CONDUCT

  1. You understand that you will be a member of a group and agree to conduct yourself in a way that does not endanger your self or the group, or detract from the enjoyment of others.

  2. If you are hosting hosting a party, gathering, or hospitality suite in a private hotel room at the Event, you agree to:

    1. Follow all hotel policies, including but not limited to those regarding noise and nuisance, and to follow directions of hotel staff,

    2. Keep private parties private, and admit only friends or registered Tiki Kon guests,

    3. Not sell alcohol to anyone, nor serve alcohol to minors,

    4. Verify all guests in attendance have valid Tiki Kon admission wristbands.

  3. You agree not to re-sell any official Tiki Kon merchandise for a period four (4) months after the event. We do this to prevent "flipping" of our exclusive, limited edition items.

  4. You agree to never be cross, mean, rude, or disrespectful to Tiki Kon volunteers, and understand that this is never acceptable and is grounds for being shamed, ejected without refund, and banned from the event in perpetuity. They work for free and deserve respect. If you need someone to yell at, ask to speak to a manager or event organizer. Only worthless assholes treat volunteers poorly. 

NOTICE OF FILMING AND PHOTOGRAPHY

By attending Tiki Kon, you consent to being photographed, filmed and/or otherwise recorded by official event photographers, members of the press, vendors, other guests, and other affiliates.  Your entry into the Event constitutes your consent to such photography, filming and/or recording and to any use, in any and all media throughout the universe in perpetuity, of your appearance, voice and name for any purpose whatsoever in connection with Tiki Kon.
