Just in time to welcome the New Year, New York Comic Con (NYCC) organizers have today announced that 4-Day tickets for the 2012 pop culture extravaganza in New York City will go on sale tomorrow, January 3, 2012 at 12 noon EST. The 4-Day ticket provides an exclusive pass to New York Comic Con on Thursday (October 11) as the convention will be open on that day to only Pros, Press, VIPs and fans who purchase a 4-Day ticket! Officials also note that more panels and screenings will be added to the schedule on Thursday and the convention will have extended hours on Thursday with the show floor open from 3pm – 9pm.
The dates for this year’s New York Comic Con are Thursday, October 11 – Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. NYCC organizers note that right now they are only selling the exclusive 4-Day tickets. Last year the 4-Day tickets sold out so fans are encouraged to mark their calendar and buy their tickets early! Meanwhile, 3-Day tickets will go on sale later this Spring and Single Day tickets will go on sale in the Summer. All tickets for the convention may be purchased at www.newyorkcomiccon.com.
VIP tickets will go on sale in the early Summer of 2012. So if you want to upgrade to VIP, you will have to purchase a ticket now and then either call (888) 605-6059 or (203) 840-5635. The other option is that you MUST first purchase the VIP ticket online and then email email@example.com to request a refund for the full amount of your regular ticket. (Make sure you purchase the VIP ticket first and then send the e-mail for the upgrade so you are assured of getting your VIP ticket before they sell out.) — It looks like either way you must buy a ticket now!
Tickets for New York Comic Con in 2011 were completely sold out and officials note that exhibit space for last year’s show was also sold out. Customers interested in signing up for NYCC in 2012 should contact Larry Settembrini at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other information about the show, as well as news about ReedPOP, which also organizes Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2), is available at Lance Fensterman’s blog, www.mediumatlarge.net.
