It's also WIP Wednesday, so show us what you're working on for the con!

Omni-tan is getting herself ready, too. She's been looking forward to seeing everyone since 2019 ended! She's so excited, she's even got a special badge ribbon to hand out to anyone who takes photos with her on Friday of the convention! These are limited quantity, so don't miss your chance. She'll also hang out with us for a bit at Omni-tan's Pajama Party Friday night in Main Events!

Face Coverings Update
[ 60 days, 7 hours ago - 07/30/21 09:07 AM ]

Important Update!

The Omni Fandom Expo Staff has been in discussion after monitoring the severity of the Delta variant updates for COVID-19. While our hotel location, the Wyndham Orlando Resort & Conference Center Celebration Area in Kissimmee, only requires face coverings for those unvaccinated (at the time of this posting), we WILL BE REQUIRING for ALL attending our event to have face coverings while inside the convention center space.

Repeat: Face Coverings are REQUIRED for ALL inside the convention center space.

Even Omni-tan has her mask ready!

We will still be holding a raffle for Vaccinated attendees, and some events in the Main Events room may allow for those with the vaccination sticker to remove their masks if properly socially distanced. Masquerade Costume Contest Contestants will be allowed to remove their masks when going on stage for presentation but they must be put back on before returning to their seats after getting off stage.

At this time and unless given direction otherwise during Omni Fandom Expo in specified locations, if you wish to remove your mask or face covering, you must leave the convention center space.

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to a safe convention for everyone next weekend!

2020 Postponement & New Dates
[ 437 days, 21 hours ago - 07/17/20 07:07 PM ]

Hello Everyone,

We had hoped that with our new dates that we would be seeing all of you and having some fun together before the end of the summer this year. However, after many discussions, much planning with our Staff and the Hotel, and lots of observations of the current and evolving community situation, we have weighed the many options for Omni Fandom Expo 2020.

We found that given the current standings, holding a 2020 event was just not in the cards. In the best interests and continued safety of everyone, we felt it would better to postpone to a time when we would be able to put on the caliber of event that we have come to love for the past 6 years. We are severely disappointed and saddened to have to say that we will be postponing Omni Fandom Expo until 2021 when we hope things will be safer for all involved. After all, without you, there is no convention. But fear not Omni fans, for our dates are already locked in with our Hotel, the Wyndam Orlando Resort Celebration!

Omni Fandom Expo will return August 6-8, 2021! This gives everyone another year to plan and prepare. We hope for plenty of time to allow the current health situation to have some form of stability with immunization and treatment available to allow gatherings safely once again for all to enjoy.

Nevertheless, we will continue to plan for safe health standards, hanging on to the supplies we have already been gathering for this year so we will be ready for 2021. We have been in close contact with our Hotel location and will continue to do so as we monitor changes in the current situation.

We ask everyone to please remember that we are a small convention, and as such we rely on PreRegistration and Merchant sales to afford all the pre-con required expenses, such as venue, advertising, flights, etc. This means that, as before, all monies previously received were already applied to the Hotel and convention planning, and any flight refunds from March's postponement are still in limbo. Other expenses were rolled over from one set of dates to the next. What does this mean for those of you whom have already helped support Omni Fandom Expo 2020?

  • Hotel rooms should automatically be cancelled by the Wyndam Orlando Resort Celebration. In case they are not, please give them time to do so. The hotel has not yet fully reopened and staff there is currently extremely limited or working from home.
     
  • PreRegistration and Merchant Booths/Tables: As with our previous postponement from March to August of this year, we will be rolling over all purchases to the new 2021 dates. You will not need to do anything as this will be automatic.
     
  • Panelists: Once again we will be clearing the panel schedule when the new dates are created. We will make an announcement once the new dates and times are available. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we have felt it best in everyone's interests to simply reset the panel times in case anyone needs to change their schedule.
     
  • Merchants unable to attend our new dates will need to contact us. The same requirements as last time will apply - due to the lack of sufficient funds at this time, we will be unable to refund until the specific table/booth resells. Please contact us with your table/booth number and company name as well as proof of purchase so that we may release your table/booth and place you on our refund list.
     
  • Merchants who cancelled previously and your table/booth has NOT resold: Please contact us immediately with your information so that we may place you back in your same spot. Any prior payment will be reapplied.
     
  • Merchants who cancelled previously and your table/booth IS NOT available but you were not yet refunded due to the sale not yet completing: If there is a table or booth currently available please place your reservation and contact us with your information so that we may apply your previous payment to the new table/booth.

As always, we thank everyone for their support of our small event. We wish all the best of safety and health in these trying times and hope to see you all in 2021.

We love you all and please be safe so we can see you next year.

~Samantha
Owner, Omni Fandom Expo

2020 Information Update
[ 452 days, 23 hours ago - 07/02/20 05:07 PM ]

To the Attendees and Supporters of Omni Fandom Expo:

In light of current events, we here at Omni Fandom Expo would like to take a moment to address concerns raised in regards to our event in less than two months. We appreciate everyone's concerns and do not take them lightly, and as such, we have been in contact with our host hotel to ensure that we are taking every precaution to keep Omni Fandom Expo safe. Beyond that, we are carefully monitoring Osceola County ordinances pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as information put forth by the State of Florida and the CDC.

Omni Fandom Expo is a small event, so we are confident that we will be able to ensure social distancing guidelines will be enforced over the course of the weekend. As a reminder, face coverings will be required for entry. If someone is seen without any sort of face coverings, they will be informed by Staff or volunteers to put one on, or they will need to leave the event space. This is in accordance with Osceola County guidelines requiring face coverings in public spaces. We also encourage attendees and Merchants to hold each other accountable in maintaining social distance protocols and the wearing of face coverings.

The Omni Fandom Expo Staff do believe in the effectiveness of wearing face coverings to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Recent studies have also shown this information. (For example, you can check out this article covering one such study by Cambridge University.) Of course, it is best to combine face coverings with social distancing and hand washing/sanitizing.

Throughout the convention space, we will have signs posted detailing social distancing guidelines, as well as markings on the ground for queuing. The set up for seating in Main Events and Panel Rooms will be designed with social distancing in mind, with rooms being kept to 50% capacity or less. We are in talks with the performers for our shows to make sure that everyone can have a good time without putting anyone at risk. Certain events are also being amended.

Over the last several months, the Staff of the convention have been collecting cleaning supplies for use in the convention space, and the schedules for these rooms are being adjusted in order to allow time for staff to clean the space between events and panels. Staff has also been in contact with the hotel to ensure they are going to have available accommodations of sanitizer stations when they reopen in July after their renovations. We encourage all Merchants to come prepared with cleaning supplies for their individual booths, as Omni Fandom Expo will need to make sure that their supplies lasts the entire weekend, from set up on Thursday to tear down on Sunday.

We understand that some of our friends in the community have concerns about our event. While our policy on refunds remains the same, we would like to remind everyone that tickets are transferrable and they may be sold to another party. If you have any questions or further concerns please send them to info@omniexpo.com to ensure that they are seen in a timely manner. Please note that our Staff may not be able to reply to every email due to their own schedules of working in essential industries.

We thank everyone for their continued support in our little convention, and we hope to see you in August!

Sincerely,
The Staff at Omni Fandom Expo

Convention Update!!
[ 470 days, 1 hour ago - 06/15/20 03:06 PM ]

Omni fans! We hope everyone has been keeping safe and healthy during these crazy times.

We wanted to give an update about this year's event. Osceola County, where our hotel is located at, has a County Ordinance requiring the wearing of face masks when in public. Because of this, as well as the concern for everyone's health while in attenance, Omni Fandom Expo 2020 will be requiring face masks/covering to be worn by everyone at all times inside the convention space.

This means all attendees, vendors, artists, Staff, and Guests. If you need to take a break from your mask you will need to step outside away from the entrance doors or return to your hotel room (if you're staying with us at our host location).

In this light, we know many of you are sporting custom fandom masks and we want to see them! Get creative if you haven't yet! Show us your cosplay-related masks or how you show off your favorite character or series/movie/game/etc.

Tag us in your social media posts (@OmniFandomExpo on Instagram and Twitter!) and use the hashtag #OFE2020facemasks in your post so we can check them out! We'll even give away a VIP pass to our favorite pick!

We can't wait to hang out with everyone August 14-16, 2020 at the Days Hotel by Wyndham Celebration in Kissimmee, FL!

Tickets and hotel room reservations are available now!



For more information about Osceola County's current COVID-19 ordinances, please check out their site. https://www.osceola.org/covid19/

Convention Update
[ 563 days, 22 hours ago - 03/13/20 06:03 PM ]

As fans ourselves, we always take pride in trying to put together the best event possible for everyone to enjoy. That being said, we of course are always concerned with the safety and well-being of everyone involved in Omni Fandom Expo. We have been in talks with the Days Hotel by Wyndham Celebration, our event location for next weekend, about the concerns of the currently evolving situation.

As a small business event, we rely on the patronage of merchants and attendees alike to maintain our show. Everyone on Staff has worked hard to make sure we could have been able to keep everyone as safe as possible and respond quickly to any situation.

That being said, we had many discussions between our location and Staff. It took a lot for us to come to our decision, but ultimately it was also required by the City of Kissimmee as well. We are deeply heartbroken for it to have come down to this.

We have chosen to postpone the convention to later in the year. Dates will be announced as soon as we have them finalized.

Merchants - your current table and booth fees will be rolled over to the new dates, including those whom had previously cancelled. Any attendees who have PreRegistration tickets will also be rolled over to our new dates. The only changes will be that Panelists will need to reschedule once the new dates are in our system.

Everyone with hotel room reservations may easily amend by contacting the hotel directly. New hotel reservation information will be made available as soon as we have it.

Please, stay home and take care of yourself if you feel any illness. We as a community all joke in good fun about "con plague" and how it can be inevitable but this time it may be no joke with everyone on heightened alert.

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to our next event!

Information about COVID-19
[ 567 days, 1 hour ago - 03/10/20 03:03 PM ]

Greetings Omni Fandom Expo fans!

My name is Samantha and I am the convention owner. In my role, there are many things that I am responsible for beyond the setup and planning of the convention itself. I wanted to take a moment to address a concern that has been brought to us lately.

As March 20 rolls ever closer, we understand that there is concern over the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our event. We understand this concern and we are monitoring this situation closely.

We have been in contact with our event location, the Days Hotel by Wyndham Celebration, over this concern. They have assured us that they have increased their cleaning and disinfecting procedures in all public and high traffic areas of the hotel. They will also have Hand Sanitizing stations throughout the public area.

We also plan to have our own supplies on hand for our Staff to utilize to help in keeping Registration, Main Events, Panel Room, and Gaming as clean as possible. Of course, we will always recommend that all attendees and merchants take their own precautions and bring extra supplies of their own as we are aware that supply availability for cleaning and sanitation items is quite limited in our areas. Along the same line, we strongly suggest keeping an extra awareness for other's personal space and not touching or hugging anyone without their consent.

According to the CDC, "for the majority of people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. There is not widespread circulation in most communities in the United States."

They have also released the best preventative actions to keep in mind during this time.
"-Clean your hands often
-Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
-If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
-To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. Use a tissue or your sleeve to cover your hand or finger if you must touch something.
-Wash your hands after touching surfaces in public places.
-Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
-Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks & cell phones)"

The following is also the current known symptoms to keep an eye for:
"-Pay attention for potential COVID-19 symptoms including, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you feel like you are developing symptoms, call your doctor.
-If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. In adults, emergency warning signs*:
    * Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    * Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    * New confusion or inability to arouse
    * Bluish lips or face"

The CDC has advised those whom are older or have compromised immune systems should take extra precaution to reduce risks, however, keep in mind that at this time the risk of getting influenza is higher than COVID-19.

For more information about the coronavirus, please check the CDC website as they provide updates with new information.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/summary.html

We are continuing to get everything ready for next weekend and we look forward to hanging out with everyone in Kissimmee.

Thank you all for your support!

Hello everyone! We hope you've all had a fantastic summer! And with Fall well underway, it's time to get those 2020 engines going!

We'd like to start off the season by letting everyone know about an update with our location. Our previous announcement mentioned that we would be at the Park Inn by Radisson in Kissimmee. While we are still at this location, the hotel has been undergoing a renovation and brand change!

We are happy to say the current name of the hotel is Days Hotel by Wyndham Celebration. We are currently working with them to get the hotel reservation links set up. We will make another announcement as soon as that goes online!

Coming soon, though, is what we know you all look forward to - guest announcements! We've got a couple in the pipeline, and we can't wait to share with you!!

To all of our merchants - we know you have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of applications opening. Please be patient, we hope to have that ready coming soon now that we've gotten some needed info from our hotel! As always we will announce here when applications open!
