Megaplex’s paramount concern is the safety of our attendees. Recent proposals by the Florida state government may change state laws regarding COVID-19 policies. To comply with potential state law, Megaplex will have the following as our projected COVID-19 policies for 2023:

1) While state law will prohibit us from requiring and/or requesting proof of vaccination, and may prevent us from implementing a masking policy, Megaplex STRONGLY recommends, but will not require, masking in confined or densely populated areas and recommends that all attendees be fully vaccinated and fully boosted as of Sept 1st, 2023.

2) Megaplex will have disposable masks available while supplies last.

3) Any policies listed are subject to change due to: new CDC requirements, potential legal changes, or unforeseen circumstances that may require an amendment to our policy.

If you are feeling unwell we ask that you stay home for the safety of yourself and others. For those who test positive before the convention and are unable to attend, we will rollover your registration to 2024 - contact us at mp-registration [at]

For those not wanting or able to attend Megaplex this year, we will be streaming live the majority of events in Main Events during the convention and many of the videos will be on our YouTube channel in the weeks afterward.

A Statement About Recent News Articles

PDF Version

Megaplex would like to respond to recent news articles regarding the convention. Megaplex takes the safety of its attendees, staff, and venue very seriously. We were made aware of an electronic threat towards Megaplex and IndyFurCon. We immediately deemed the threat credible and reached out to appropriate law enforcement agencies as well as IndyFurCon. Thanks to the quick action of law enforcement and associated cyber security professionals, they identified and apprehended the individual responsible. Megaplex has not made a statement until now due to the ongoing law enforcement investigation. We want to assure con goers that your safety is a paramount concern.

If anyone has any questions, they can reach out to mp-feedback [at] however due to pending court action Megaplex may not be able to provide additional detail than exists in the article.

Megaplex wants to sincerely thank IndyFurCon for their support in helping make sure both events are more secure.
