Eclipse Con is a family-friendly event. Adult material may not be displayed prominently. All vendors are required to verify the ages anyone purchasing adult material. We do reserve the right to determine what is acceptable to be displayed and what is not. If asked to remove or cover something up, please do so. Refusal to do so will terminate the agreement between the vendor and Eclipse Con immediately and your booth will be shut down and no refunds given. This is also true for any illegal activity (including the sales of bootleg products) taking place at a booth.
