The 56-Year Mission STLV 2022 Convention
COVID-19 Procedures & Policies

All procedures and policies subject to change

Creation Entertainment maintains that the health and safety of our attendees, celebrity guests and staff are a top priority.

Here are the following COVID policies and procedures* for The 56-Year Mission STLV Convention being held August 25-28, 2022 at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino.


You must bring proof of vaccination, along with your valid ID, to receive a special-colored wristband, which you must wear for the entire convention in addition to your entry wristband. You can bring the physical card, or a printed or digital copy of the card.


We require a negative COVID-19 test result, which should be taken within 72 hours of attending the convention. You will receive the same special-colored wristband as stated above.

For your reference, here are COVID testing sites in Las Vegas. You may also use a Rapid COVID test kit that you have purchased over the counter, but you must take the test in-person at the convention in our private testing area, to show results. We will also have a limited supply of Rapid tests available on-site for a fee of $25, available while supplies last.

2. While we are aware that people can still test positive for COVID up to 90 days after initial transmission, if when you check-in with our COVID table you do test positive, even if you’ve quarantined, you will not be able to attend the convention. For those who cannot attend because of their COVID positive test status on-site, we are offering a rollover to next year’s convention. NOTE: The name on the test MUST match the name on the ticket. The refund is ONLY applicable to the original ticket holder.

3. If you test positive between Sunday, August 21, 2022 and Sunday, August 28, 2022 or if you already have an active case of COVID at the time of our event, please stay home and email us at by Sunday, August 28, 2022 at 12:00 AM PST and provide verifiable lab test results from a test that has been taken between Sunday 8/21/22 and Sunday 8/28/22 (rapid home tests are not acceptable), we are offering a rollover to next year’s convention.

4. If you are showing positive on the verifiable lab test as above, your tickets for 2022 will no longer be valid. We will issue your new tickets for our next show within 8 weeks after the completion of the current show. Should anyone attempt to use invalid 2022 tickets at the convention they will no longer be eligible for the rollover and your tickets will not be refunded.

NOTE: You represent that if you do not comply with COVID-19 safety protocols that you will leave the event venue, and furthermore, you agree that you will not be due a refund of your Event ticket and CE will not be responsible for any consequential damages as a result of your expulsion.

5. Mask-wearing is mandatory indoors for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status. Per the CDC, a mask must fit snugly against your face without gaps and without exhalation valves or vents. Mesh masks are not allowed. If you are wearing a shield, you must ALSO wear a mask underneath the shield. If you do not comply with this policy, you are subject to expulsion from the convention and no refund will be given.

6. Sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the convention area for public use.  

7. If you are feeling ill, please DO NOT attend.

Please see below for our “Disease and Illness” Disclaimer. 


A plexiglass barrier will no longer be in place for most of the guests** however, there will still be a “NO TOUCHING” policy.

**NOTE: Actors who wish to have plexiglass in their photo will be noted on our schedule.

Fans are still required to wear a mask at all times during the convention, including in the photo op room (but can be taken off for the photo).

Please note that special poses/hugs and physical contact are not offered in the purchasing of a photo op.  Please also keep in mind that the actors, while they are recognizable to us, we are strangers to them, so don’t do anything to them that you wouldn’t want a stranger to do to you, especially in these times.

Disease and Illness Disclaimer: By using your admission pass, you represent and warrant that you will not enter the venue or participate in the Event in person if (a) you are aware, as of the date of the Event, that you have contracted and not completely recovered from COVID-19 or another communicable disease; (b) you are aware, as of the date of the Event, that you have been exposed within the prior two weeks to someone who had contracted or was subsequently determined to have contracted, COVID-19 or another communicable disease; (c) you have been tested for COVID-19 or another communicable disease but not yet received the results of such test; or (d) you have symptoms consistent with having contracted COVID-19 or another communicable disease. You also represent and warrant that, during the course of the Event, you will comply with all applicable regulations and guidelines imposed by CE and any Event venue regarding COVID-19 and any other communicable disease, which may include verification of vaccination, wearing masks, a daily symptom check, temperature checks, and/or COVID testing. You represent that should you not comply with COVID-19 safety protocols that you will leave the event venue, and furthermore, you agree that you will not be due a refund of your Event ticket and CE will not be responsible for any consequential damages as a result of your expulsion. We reserve the right to change any of our health policies as necessary.



For 50 years, we’ve been proud to present convention gatherings for our fellow fans in North America. It’s been a wonderful ride that allowed us to enjoy our love of the genre with others who share that passion. We’ve tried to follow the beliefs of our mentor Gene Roddenberry by creating events that present a positive view of the future celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We hope you join us in Las Vegas as the human adventure continues.

As the decades past for our company we’ve taken our experiences to provide what we believe is the absolute best presentation for fans. Unlike so many other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Because of this process of not overselling we have a huge vendors room where it is possible to easily check out each booth without fighting seam-busting crowds.

Creation Entertainment has the right to refuse service to anyone who interferes with the safety and well-being of other patrons, staff, actors, Creation Entertainment and the establishment itself. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment of any kind both in advance and/or at a particular event, illegal activity, unreasonable rowdiness, patrons lacking adequate hygiene and inconsideration to others. Refusal of service shall never be based on race or color, National origin or citizenship status, religion or creed, sex, age, disability, pregnancy or genetic information, Veteran or Military status, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, political affiliations or activities, or status as a victim of domestic violence, assault or stalking.
