Continuing Safety Improvements at FanimeCon 2024

May 01, 2024

As part of our ongoing commitment to prioritize the safety of our attendees, vendors, staff, and volunteers, we have partnered with Team San Jose and the San Jose Convention Center to implement the next step in our Convention Safety Initiative.

Starting this year at FanimeCon 2024 you will be passing through metal detectors before entering the Convention Center, the Civic, and South Hall. The metal detectors will help ensure that everyone attending FanimeCon is following the Code of Conduct. 

Since we know that passing through metal detectors can sometimes be difficult, we will be taking advantage of a newer technology called an “E-Gate”. E-Gates will not require you to take items out of your pockets or have your bag inspected unless the E-Gate flags you for an additional check. 

Since some events will still be using regular metal detectors and you can still be flagged by the E-Gates, we suggest you try to keep bags to a minimum and be mindful of any metal items you may be carrying. 

If you would like to know more, please go to the Convention Safety Initiative webpage and we hope you have a wonderful and safe FanimeCon 2024.
