Chicon 8 strives to hold a welcoming and inclusive event. As with any community, portions of our population are at high risk for serious complications from COVID-19. Part of our responsibility to our community is safeguarding the health of all our members.
To that end, proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 as defined by the CDC or countries with reasonably aligned vaccination protocols are required for entry to Chicon 8. Masks are required in all convention spaces except when actively eating or drinking in designated areas.
The full policy and FAQ can be viewed here.

It’s May—we’re another month closer to the big event, and plans are proceeding apace!
Meetup at the Hyatt
Let’s talk about our social event coming up at the Hyatt! We are having our all-staff meeting, and decided that we would love to see friends, attendees, potential attendees…so come hang out with us! Saturday, May 14 from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. We’re at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 E. Wacker Drive, in the Plaza Ballroom. The Plaza Ballroom is on the lobby level of the East Tower—walk into the hotel and head all the way to the back left corner. We will be requiring vaccine checks and masking, unless you are actively eating or drinking. The patio will also be open for folks who are more comfortable outside.
Sponsorship Opportunities Now Available!
We can’t wait to see you at Chicon 8!
Stay safe and be well,
