How do I attend Comic-Con International 2015?
Comic-Con International 2015 will be held July 9-12 (with Preview Night on July 8) at the San Diego Convention Center. There will be two opportunities for you to purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2015 based upon your eligibility: preregistration and Open Online Registration. You must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID to participate, and you must be eligible. For eligibility information, please click here.
How will I know when badges go on sale?
Comic-Con International will send an email with the registration date and time to all eligible members at least 48 hours in advance of the sale.
To guarantee you receive all email notifications from Comic-Con, please be sure to sign in to your Member ID account
and click the “OPT-OUTS” option on the “My Account” tab. Make sure you have not checked the “Email Opt-Out” box. If you have selected to opt-out of email notifications from Comic-Con, you will not receive important registration announcements.
I still don't understand - What is the difference between Member IDs, badges, and tickets?
A Comic-Con International badge is required for entry to any Comic-Con event. This is the physical badge you must wear at Comic-Con at all times.
Additionally, a Comic-Con Member ID account is required to purchase, apply, or register for a badge for Comic-Con. The Member ID may act as your login to the online registration system when badge sales begin. Without a Member ID you will not be able to log on to the online registration system and purchase a badge, nor complete a press, professional, trade professional, or volunteer application.
Comic-Con International does not sell "tickets" to our event. After you register for a Member ID and purchase your badge during Open Online Registration, you will receive a barcode confirmation email that you will bring onsite to exchange for a badge.
