What do people say about PoleCon?

ATL was a lovely location. I hope that pole con goes back there at some point. Though I love that y'all pick different locations. Not only because it gives us all a chance to travel, but it makes it easier for some people who can't travel/travel far to get a chance to go.

Megan

Loved the MC's! Absolutely great banter! Black Girls Pole and troupe's and groups were my favorite shows. I don't think that any of the shows were bad...I loved seeing all shapes, sizes, and ages on stage!

The below are physical safety procedures in place at PoleCon for all live PoleCon events. These policies are regularly reviewed and may be updated. If you have suggestions for how to improve these policies, you may share them at [email protected]

General

PoleCon has one medic certified in CPR/AED always stationed by the main stage (this practice has been in place since 2016). They will have ice, bandaids/bandages, and an AED.

PoleCon has walkie-talkies/radios that coordinate between the main stage, the PoleCon registration and the workshop rooms in case of any issue.

If an aerial or pole playground is present during a PoleCon event, it is monitored by the company providing the equipment and/or a volunteer. Anyone who uses the equipment after hours, is poling at their own risk.

PoleCon does not extend the “legs” of stage poles because many people complained of kicking their toes. Legs can be extended on any stage pole to provide additional stability.

**Starting in 2024, all paid workshop leaders must be CPR/AED certified.

Insurance: All PoleCon workshop leaders are required to have insurance. PoleCon also maintains event insurance.

COVID-19 Safety

PoleCon does not require masks for the 2023 event. Masks are optional. Some workshop leaders may prefer masks are worn during their workshops. If this is the case, they will provide them.

PoleCon reserves the right to modify COVID-19 safety protocols based on the laws and regulations governing the location of PoleCon at the time of the event. PoleCon will communicate this information as soon and as clearly as possible with attendees.

All PoleCon paid workshop leaders agree to the following COVID-19 related clause in their contracts (in practice since 2021): to work with PoleCon on all required health mitigations to safely attend the event including but not limited to wearing masks, providing proof of vaccination and/or negative PCR test or other as required by the federal government, local government, and/or hotel which may become relevant or required. As of December 2022, masks are optional at the event, negative tests or vaccines are not required. Artist knows this can change at any time.

All PoleCon attendees agree to the following clause (in practice since 2021 and in the attendee event booklet): by attending PoleCon, I acknowledge the evolving nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to the virus and become infected as a result of my attendance at PoleCon, despite safety measures in place. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any expense, liability, illness, injury, disability or death related to testing positive for the virus during or after the event. By attending PoleCon, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless PoleCon from all claims arising out of COVID-19. I understand and agree that this release of liability includes any claims towards PoleCon, as well as conference personnel or representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurrence exists before, during, or after attendance and participation at the event.

Code of Conduct

All attendees agree to the following clause (in practice since 2021 and in the attendee event booklet): Attendees must respect commonsense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property during PoleCon.

Attendees must receive explicit verbal or non-verbal consent before any interaction that involves physical contact.

Attendees must respect current and applicable rules and regulations for safety regarding COVID-19.

PoleCon reserves the right to revoke, without refund, the convention pass and/or workshop passes of any attendee not in compliance with this policy at PoleCon and/or before PoleCon if a legitimate safety concern is warranted as defined by PoleCon staff and relevant legal counsel.

Persons finding themselves in a situation where they feel their physical safety is at risk during PoleCon or who become aware of an attendee not in compliance with this policy should immediately notify the PoleCon front desk/registration desk so that the matter can be handled in an expeditious manner which may include involving local law enforcement.
