Comic-Con 2016 Attendee Preregistration is Here

Comic-Con International Registration Update

Clear your plans for Saturday, November 14. Attendee Preregistration is coming! Starting at 8:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (PST), all eligible members may authorize their registration codes to enter the Expo Logic Registration waiting room. Badges will go on sale shortly after 9:00 AM PST.

This year’s badge buying process will closely resemble 2015, with one big improvement. We are excited to announce the arrival of RFID badge technology to Comic-Con 2016! RFID badges are extremely hard to duplicate, which addresses the problems we’ve had with counterfeit badging! In addition, it allows us to tie a badge to a specific person closer than before.

RFID technology also allows us to offer another exciting feature… advance fulfillment! Now we can mail you your badge in advance so you can skip those pesky registration lines onsite. No more waiting in line to get your badge when you arrive, although you’ll still want to pick up your bag, Souvenir Book and Events Guide, and lanyard at your leisure.  And if the postman accidentally delivers your badge to another dimension, RFID technology allows us to turn off the missing badge and issue you a new one onsite. 

If you are selected for a registration session on Saturday, you will see some minor changes to the payment screen where you will now be able to enter a shipping address. All badges purchased during a registration will be shipped to the buyer’s address only. For a detailed walk thru of the entire registration process and the new payment page, please click here.

At this time, we are unable to ship badges to an international address. All international orders must be picked up onsite. If you are an international attendee please enter your international address where the shipping address is required, keeping in mind that your badges will be held onsite for pick up.

Child badges will still be available onsite only. Comic-Con is proud to offer one of the most generous free child badge policies in the comic convention industry and all children age 12 and under may attend Comic-Con 2016 for free with a paying adult.
