The following information is subject to change at any time. Please check back often as we move closer to the show.
Midwinter Gaming Convention takes the health and safety of our Guests seriously, and in planning the 2022 show we are looking to health organizations and local leaders for guidance in making our 2022 policies. We will be intentional in our approach to health and safety measures.
At this time neither the City of Milwaukee, nor The Hilton, have mask mandates/requirements in place. HOWEVER, out of an abundance of caution, Midwinter will require masks be worn by all Guests over the age of two in all our gaming spaces, including the Exhibit Hall regardless of vaccination status. If you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, please contact the Midwinter Staff to discuss an exemption.
Please be aware we will not be the only group present in the hotel the weekend of January 13-16th, and there are many places within the Hilton that are open to the public. Please be kind to one another and understand that regardless of personal beliefs, this is the best way for us to move forward as a show.
We will only have control over the spaces directly included in our contract.
A few things will be happening during the show to facilitate safety; Linenless tables in the gaming spaces, reduced capacity in rooms with greater space between tables, time between scheduled events to allow for sanitization of tables/rooms, no 24 hour gaming in the Board Game Room to allow for deep cleaning. We are intentionally scheduling fewer games at each table and fewer tables in each room.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting Midwinter Gaming Convention you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
We encourage people to get vaccinated.
