Welcome to Archon, we are in our 40th year.

Harassment Policy

Currently we are resetting the gears for our quadragenarian year, please check back often for updates.

All attendees at Archon are expected to treat other attendees, guests, staff, and the general public with respect. Harassment of any kind, including physical assault, deliberate intimidation, stalking, unwanted photography, or unwelcome physical attentions, will not be tolerated. Based upon the facts of the specific situation an individual may be subject to one or more of the following:

  1. A warning to cease further contact with the attendee.
  2. Confiscation of the individual’s badge and removal from the convention
  3. The individual turned over to Collinsville, Illinois law enforcement

If you feel you have been harassed, please find the nearest Archon Security personnel (identified by an orange ribbon attached to their badge) or Archon Committee (identified by a black ribbon attached to their badge) for assistance. Any attempt to have an innocent person removed from the convention by falsely accusing him or her of threats will be itself treated as an act of harassment and will be dealt with appropriately. The responsibility for settling interpersonal disputes lies solely with the individuals involved, and Archon will not tolerate being used as a leveraging point in such disputes.

Who To Contact

If, at any time, you feel that your personal safety or the safety of others is in jeopardy, please contact:

  1. the Collinsville Police Department in an emergency via 9-1-1.
