Attending the Show

Comic-Con International

Comic-Con is proud to welcome attendees, professionals, exhibitors, retailers, volunteers, and members of the press each year to the beautiful San Diego Convention Center. Attending Comic-Con is an exhilarating and unforgettable experience, but it also requires some forethought and planning.

First thing first! If you do not have a Comic-Con Member ID, please visit our Member ID Portal to create one. Anyone who wishes to purchase a badge or register for Comic-Con must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. You’ll only need one Member ID and it cannot be changed after creation.

As an attendee, you’ll need to purchase a badge during one of our two online badge sales: Returning Registration and Open Registration. The date of each badge sale will be sent via email to those with an eligible Comic-Con Member ID account. PSST! We also post badge sale dates on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to follow us on social media so you don’t miss out! And, of course, bookmark our Toucan blog for helpful tips and tricks!

Hover over the "Badges" and “Attending The Show” dropdown menus above to find additional information about purchasing Comic-Con badges, how to register as a professional, volunteer, or member of the press, or about popular on-site activities like Preview Night and the Blood Drive. You will also find valuable information regarding hotels, disabled services, convention policies, and volunteering. If it isn't there right now, don't worry ... it will be as we get closer to the event!

We truly appreciate your interest in Comic-Con, and we look forward to seeing you in July!
