Announcing our 2023 charity!

Hi everyone! Pounce here. I just thought you’d like to know that Megaplex has selected The Street Dog Coalition as the designated charity for this year’s convention. It provides free medical care and services to pets of people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness. They care for the physical and mental health on both ends of the leash so that they help both pets and people .

Overflow Hotels Now Available!

The main hotel has stayed very full and while openings do crop up from time to time they sell quickly. We have negotiated 2 cost effective overflow hotels for those that don't mind not being in the main hotel that are about 1 mile away. Check them out on our Hotel Page

STATEMENT ON STATE OF FLORIDA LEGISLATION

Many have raised concerns about recent changes in Florida legislation. After reviewing Florida SB 1438 it has been decided that for legal reasons and protection of our attendees, our venue, and the overall convention, Megaplex 2023 attendees must be 18 years of age at the time of registration pickup. Megaplex has welcomed younger fandom members and their families since its inception and making this change was very difficult. The Code of Conduct has been updated to reflect this change and emails are going out to those affected. While this change impacts the 2023 convention, it is unsure if this will have to continue for future years. It is our hope that this change is temporary and that we can welcome members of all ages back next year. With this in mind, the public decorum portion of the Code of Conduct as well as standards for programming, attire, and behavior in convention space will not be changing and will continue to be enforced as has been in the past.

This decision has been a difficult one, but Megaplex has not forgotten about or abandoned our younger fandom members and is looking into options for events and activities to include all age ranges and their family members.

Many have also voiced concerns regarding CS/HB 1521. After Legal review, it has been concluded that this does not affect us as our convention is held in a private venue. We are talking with the hotel about the possibility of offering gender neutral restrooms in the convention space.  If we are able to offer this we will have them clearly marked on our convention map.

If you have any additional questions regarding any cancelation requests, please feel free to contact us at mp-registration@megaplexcon.org.

REGARDING THE MEGAPLEX COVID-19 POLICY FOR 2023

PDF Version

REGARDING THE MEGAPLEX COVID-19 POLICY FOR 2023

Megaplex’s paramount concern is the safety of our attendees. Recent proposals by the Florida state government may change state laws regarding COVID-19 policies. To comply with potential state law, Megaplex will have the following as our projected COVID-19 policies for 2023:

1) While state law will prohibit us from requiring and/or requesting proof of vaccination, and may prevent us from implementing a masking policy, Megaplex STRONGLY recommends, but will not require, masking in confined or densely populated areas and recommends that all attendees be fully vaccinated and fully boosted as of Sept 1st, 2023.

2) Megaplex will have disposable masks available while supplies last.

3) Any policies listed are subject to change due to: new CDC requirements, potential legal changes, or unforeseen circumstances that may require an amendment to our policy.

If you are feeling unwell we ask that you stay home for the safety of yourself and others. For those who test positive before the convention and are unable to attend, we will rollover your registration to 2024 - contact us at mp-registration [at] megaplexcon.org.

For those not wanting or able to attend Megaplex this year, we will be streaming live the majority of events in Main Events during the convention and many of the videos will be on our YouTube channel in the weeks afterward.
