Comic-Con International badges on sale Saturday
(CBR) The general public finally gets its shot at badges for Comic-Con International on Saturday morning.
Organizers have announced open online registration will begin shortly after 9 a.m. PT; the EPIC Registration landing page will open two hours earlier to allow hopefuls to enter their personal registration code and authorize their device to enter the waiting room. (The personal registration code and a link to the landing page will be sent by email to those with Member IDs at least 24 hours before badges go on sale.)
Confused by mention of the “personal registration code”? It’s been implemented to prevent ineligible members from entering the EPIC Registration waiting room and further bog down the process. Details can be found here.
As announced in January, four-day passes won’t be sold this year; organizers explained that the single-day option gives attendees more flexibility, and allows more people to attend the event each day (the badges can be consolidated onsite). In a similar move, New York Comic Con, which last year reached San Diego-sized attendance figures, reduced the number of three-day passes.
This year also sees slight price increases, with adult badges for Thursday through Saturday rising $3 to $45, and Sunday jumping $6 to $30.
For those lucky enough to secure passes, it’s worth reminding that the “Early Bird Hotel Sale” is still going on, with special rates for rooms in Mission Valley and the airport area.
Comic-Con International will be held July 24-27 at the San Diego Convention Center.
