Whether it be panel-going or meeting up with friends and family, always have a back-up plan in place at Comic-Con!
All of our panel rooms tend to fill up quickly each day, so we highly recommend you have an alternate choice in mind for your favorite panels. Even though you might stand in line in advance for a particular program in a particular room, there’s no guarantee you’ll get in to see it, unfortunately. The Fire Marshal sets all room capacities in the Convention Center and once a room is deemed full, it’s closed. The good news is there’s always something else to do at Comic-Con! With 22 separate programming rooms running most days at the event, chances are there’s another great panel or event you’ll want to attend, happening at the same time. Check out the complete Programming Schedule when we post it (about 2 weeks before Comic-Con) here on the website and use our MySched feature to track the panels you want to see … and plan those alternate destinations!
With so many people using smart phones and tablets at the Convention Center—phoning, texting, emailing, Tweeting, Facebooking, Instagramming, and whatever—it may not always be possible to make a call or send a text. And there’s also the danger of a dead battery. Always schedule a time and place to meet up, when it’s time to get back together. Pick a Convention Center “landmark” and set a time to meet. That way you’re always covered!
