Policy & FAQ Information
Courtesy
At Pacific Media Expo, we live by a mantra of respect and courtesy towards our attendees. Accordingly, we take the quality of each attendee's experience very seriously. If you feel that aspects of the event are not up to your standards, we encourage you to go to our Event Operations Office and file a complaint. If you find that a specific staffer was rude or unprofessional, please copy down their name and report the incident to the Event Operations Office. However, Pacific Media Expo asks attendees to remember that this event is being run by unpaid volunteers who are mainly working to evangelize Asian Pop Culture. Though Pacific Media Expo strives to maintain proper courtesy and behavior of its staff, the quality of service by each volunteer will vary. Pacific Media Expo will also be hosting a panel near the end of the convention just for attendees to share their input and opinions on the event. We hope that you will work closely with us in building an event that will continue to generate interest and participation in Asian Media and Popular Culture.
 
Weapons Policy
(1) Summary
The goal of the Pacific Media Association (PMA) is to create an environment where attendees can enjoy themselves as much as possible. However, this must be done without affecting the experience of others. This requires the cooperation of all attendees and the use of common sense and courtesy when costuming. PMA bears no responsibility or liability for any damages or injuries incurred by the use of costumes, props, or weapons. Any infraction may result in further tightening of our security, possibly decreasing the entire cosplay experience for all attendees. Because of recent high profile events that have heightened security and safety concerns, real weapons are prohibited at Pacific Media Expo (PMX) and other PMA events.

Autograph Sessions

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) has two types of autograph sessions - Panel Autograph Sessions and Sponsor Autograph Sessions. Each has different guidelines, so please read the information carefully. Final decision on all policies rests with the Director of Guest Services or the Director of Music for musical guests. All policies are subject to change.

Karaoke Policy
  • Any pop/rock song is allowed, but Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, anime and video game music is always preferred.
  • We have an extensive selection of music, but if we don't have the song, you can bring your own CD (original or burned), USB flash drive, or MP3 player when you go to the karaoke room. Please, check with the staff beforehand. We can not guarantee that we can play your song.
  • Please limit yourself to signing up for one song at a time. Also, if your turn comes up while you are not in the room, we reserve the right to move on to the next singer in line.
  • Please sign in with your real name (the one that is on your badge). If you want to be introduced by a stage name or your nickname, please let us know.
  • If a song is repeated several times within a short length of time, we reserve the right to alter the song queue order (or to ban the song for the remainder of the con for the sake of our sanity).
  • Please, no songs that are longer than 8 minutes in length.
  • Open Mic karaoke performances should be audience-appropriate. If in doubt, check with the staff.
  • Major rule: Do not break, throw, toss, or in any way damage the microphones or other equipment or anything else that belongs in the room! We understand enthusiasm, but it does not include mishandling the equipment or damaging property or injuring someone. You will pay for any damages!! You may also be subjected to expulsion from the convention, have your membership badge confiscated without refund, and/or criminally charged for any injury or damage of property.
  • Earplugs are optional, but are not provided, so listen at your own risk!
