Hospitality Floor

Hospitality Floor

The California convention scene and especially the Hyatt Regency SFO have a rich history of hosting a lively Hospitality Floor. The hotel will graciously put aside an area of one floor for hosting room parties in big suites. Usually at conventions there’s a handful of differently themed room parties, each host choosing their own theme with the drink menu and decorations in the room supporting the chosen theme.


This official policy aims to clarify how the Hospitality Floor works, what you can expect from other people on the floor, and from OffKai Expo’s staff.

Application for OffKai Expo Gen 3 are closed for the year.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Drugs and Alcohol

OffKai Expo has a zero-tolerance policy regarding the possession, use, sale, or distribution of illegal substances. Any violation of this rule at a party will result in the party being shut down. There will be no exceptions! Violators may be subject not only to expulsion from the convention, but also to the hotel’s rules regarding illicit activity, which may include expulsion from the hotel and/or the contacting of appropriate authorities.

Making alcohol available to those under the age of 21 years is strictly prohibited. The party host shall be responsible for carding anyone drinking alcohol. “I didn’t know they weren’t 21” is not a justifiable excuse if someone under 21 years old is seen drinking alcohol. We have found that marking, banding, or any other one-time verification is not sufficient, can be falsified, and a legal-aged drinker can be used as a runner for drinks. Hosts must maintain control of access to alcohol available in their parties. If an underaged drinker obtains a drink while you were not looking, you are still responsible. If an under-aged drinker enters your party with alcohol from another party, you have become responsible.

Smoking or vaping (of any substance) is strictly prohibited in rooms or on balconies! – The hotel policy strictly prohibits this. Remember, your room is your responsibility, so make sure your guests are aware and be prepared to direct them to a designated smoking area.

Selling drinks is not allowed! Selling tickets, suggested donations, or any form of upcharge is equivalent to selling your drinks. A voluntary donation box is allowed.

Know where ConOps is, and how to reach them by phone and foot. They can put you in touch with the Party Maven (for most issues), or convention security for health and safety issues.

Please be aware of anyone who may be drinking excessively to the point that they may become a danger to themselves, others, or hotel property. Be aware of any non-threatening but disruptive behavior such as excessive yelling. Guests who cannot continue to function in a socially acceptable manner may face action from security or hotel security.


Public parties are off-limits to non-convention attendees. Convention membership badges (day passes are OK) must be visible on each person. Upon the request of any convention executive staff member, the Party Maven, security, or hotel staff member, all persons in a party must show identification and/or their membership badge as requested. Executive staff and security can be identified by specially marked convention badges.

The party host will be responsible for any damage to the room or hotel property within the room. You should report any damage to hotel property to the convention as soon as possible.

Under no circumstances may you tamper with, disable, or otherwise impair the function of smoke detectors or air vents in the room. Doing so is a serious safety infraction that endangers the entire hotel. If they are tampered with in any way, the party will be shut down and hotel security will be notified, which may mean ejection from the hotel.

Hosts and party attendees must follow directives of security, hotel staff, convention executive staff, and the Party Maven. If you have an issue with any of the directions, please follow them first, and then take it up with OffKai Expo’s Hotel Liaison or the convention chair later.


Music must be turned down no later than 10:00pm. Even before then, music cannot be so loud that a person cannot hold a normal conversation. The Party Maven, security, and Hotel staff have the final say on what is considered too loud. 

Speakers cannot be placed outside a hotel room.

Enjoy your music but please remember: these are parties, not sound system contests. Volume and excessive booze does not necessarily make a good party, but creativity and variety will make your party stand out above all.

Preparation / Off Hours

Before the convention, please send the dates and times of public parties to This helps us arrange room assignments so you can advertise ahead of time.

The party host must be physically present at all times during their party, or inform the Party Maven of a replacement (over 21 years old) if you wish to leave the party floor area.

During non-party hours, rooms on the party floor will be considered as regular guest rooms in the hotel with all rights and privileges for privacy.


Last but not least, have a great party! This policy applies to situations where the hotel or convention believe we need to step in. We try to be very hands-off for parties, and don’t want to be in anyone’s way of a good time.
