Exhibitor badges are only available to confirmed booth or table participants at the current year’s Comic-Con. They allow access during Exhibitor set-up, tear-down, exhibit maintenance, and public hours of the convention.

Exhibit Space at Comic-Con

Exhibit space at Comic-Con is divided into four categories.


Exhibit space consists of a 10’ x 10’ pipe and drape booth with standard carpet and electricity. The space comes with one 8’ draped table and two chairs. Booths are the “building blocks” of the floor plan. They can be combined into larger exhibit spaces. Corner and Island Premiums can be added pending availability. Island booths do not come with any fixtures or furnishings.

Dealers’ Tables

The space consists of one 8’ draped table with two chairs and 8’ high drape behind with no carpet or power. The long edge of the table must remain parallel and adjacent to the aisleway. This also applies to Fan Club Tables.

Almost all Booths and Dealers’ Tables are sold out each year in advance of the next year’s convention. Please contact the Exhibits department regarding the application process and availability.

Small Press Tables

The space consists of one 6’ draped table with two chairs and 3’ high drape behind with no carpet or power. The long edge of the table must remain parallel and adjacent to the aisleway. The Small Press area is limited to independent artists and/or independent publishers only.

Artists’ Alley Tables

The space consists of half an 8’ draped table with one chair and 3’ high drape behind with no carpet or power. The long edge of the table must remain parallel and adjacent to the aisleway. Space in Artists’ Alley is limited to creative talent only.

Comic-Con 2024 Exhibitor Badge Registration is now open!

To access Exhibitor Badge Registration, confirmed exhibitors can visit their Comic-Con 2024 GoExpo Exhibitor Profile.


Exhibitors must submit a CDTFA 410-D Seller’s Permit form and full payment in order to view their Exhibitor Badge Allotment.

Once payment has been received and CDTFA 410-D has been approved (please allow 24-72 hours for form verification), the exhibitor badge allotment will be featured at the bottom of their Exhibitor Registration home page.


If your payment has been received and your forms have been approved, click the “Exhibitor Badge Registration” link in your GoExpo Exhibitor Profile to access your “My Allotment” registration page.

 The complimentary badge allotment is the amount of badges that are included in your exhibit space price. You are able to split up your complimentary badge allotment into daily badges, if needed.

The purchased badge allotment is for any badges that exceed your complimentary allotment. The total number of purchased badges allowed is the same number as your complimentary badge(s) allotment. Exhibitor Purchasable Badge Allotments include the following options:

  • Exhibitor Purchasable Badge ($500) – This badge is for anyone that needs access to their exhibit space before and after public Exhibit Hall hours for set-up/tear down.
  • Exhibitor Attendee Purchasable Badge ($350) – This badge is for anyone that only needs access to the Exhibit Hall during public hours.

Exhibitor Badge Registration will close at 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on July 27, 2024. All registration needs should be completed before this date.
