#07 Your WonderCon RFID Badge!

WonderCon 2016 RFID Gate

To help prevent scalping and counterfeit badges, WonderCon 2016 badges will be enabled with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags. At various access points in and around the Los Angeles Convention Center, you will encounter gates with a large “Tap Here” indicator (like the example at left). All you need to do is tap your badge briefly to the indicator. When you do, you’ll get a green light that indicates you’ve been validated and are okay to enter. When you leave, you must also tap your badge out so you may re-enter when you return. 

It is extremely important you remember to tap your badge when you leave, or you could be denied re-entry and sent to the customer service desk in a different location. If you are sent to customer service to resolve a badging issue, you will need a photo ID to validate that you are the badge holder of record.

Please note: Unlike Comic-Con 2016, we will NOT be mailing out WonderCon 2016 badges in advance.

You will still pick up your badge (along with your Program Book) at Registration in West Hall A when you arrive at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Remember to bring your barcode confirmation and a photo ID to pick up your badges.
