Professional Registration Opens Today at 10am!


Comic-Con 2014 - Professional Badge Registration - SDCC - HeaderToday is the day that Professionals (Creative, not Trade) will be able to register for San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Hopefully, all of the changes and improvements that EPIC Registration will make things easier for all attendees. The following is the email that was sent to those registering for their Creative Professional Badge.

Dear Professional,

Mark your calendar! Comic-Con International 2014 professional badge registration will open on January 29, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (PT). This email is a courtesy notice to inform you of the registration date and time. The actual registration link and instructions will be sent to you in a separate email, at least 48 hours prior to registration. Please keep an eye on your email inbox for this important notification.

The professional badge registration period does not have a predetermined close date and will close – without notification – when professional badges are no longer available.

We strongly encourage you to register for your Comic-Con professional badge as early as possible! Verified and approved professionals are not guaranteed a Comic-Con badge for 2014. Each professional may register one complimentary guest and/or one paid guest while supplies last. Professional and guest badges in both categories (paid or complimentary) are limited and not all guests can be accommodated. We anticipate that complimentary guest badges may reach capacity within a few hours of the opening of registration. Be sure to register guests at the same time you register for your own badge, as guest badges may not be available if you return to register them at a later date.

Professional guest badges can be used to register an adult or junior guest (age 13 to 17). The badge price is the same ($200), whether the guest is a junior or an adult, when purchased through professional registration. To receive the attendee junior badge price of $100, we recommend purchasing an attendee junior badge during Open Online Registration for the general public. Children age 12 and under are free with a professional badge and do not count toward your guest limit. Child badges must be registered onsite at Industry Registration in Lobby D.

Trade professional registration will open later this spring. Trade professionals may not register for a Comic-Con badge on January 29, 2014.

If you are registering today, make sure you do it asap with your Guest included in your registration. The complimentary and paid guest allotment has gone down considerably from previous years. If you are not sure, just do it. Canceling is easier than trying to get one in the future as badges are limited. It makes sense that Professional Registration is done prior to Attendee Badge Registration because if some reason you are not approved you can purchase an Attendee Badge. It will be interesting to hear comments from those registering today. Keep an eye on Twitter for those positive and negative comments! This may give insight in how good or bad it will be for those registering for Attendee Badges.
