Industry Badge Pick-Up 

Professionals, program participants, and members of the press who did not receive their badges in advance may pick them up when they arrive on-site. Please bring a valid photo ID and your badge confirmation email to the Industry Registration Area located in the Sails Pavilion of the San Diego Convention Center during the hours listed above or on your badge confirmation, if different. You may not pick up your badge without a photo ID, and the name on your badge must match your identification. If you are an exhibitor, please refer to your Exhibitor Newswire for details regarding badge pick-up.

Single-Day Badges
  • A single-day badge is only valid for the day indicated on the badge. Single-day badges cannot be exchanged for a different day.
  • If you purchased four single-day badges (Thursday–Sunday), your badges will automatically be consolidated into one 4-Day badge. You cannot opt out of 4-Day badge consolidation. 
  • If you registered multiple single-day badges, you may pick all of them up on the day of your earliest badge. For example, if you purchased a Saturday and Sunday badge, you may pick them both up on Saturday.
Next-Day Badge Pick-Up

We offer next-day badge pick-up for single-day badges after 3:00 PM. For example, if you purchased a Friday badge, you may pick it up after 3:00 PM on Thursday. No badges will be released for the following day until after 3:00 PM unless being picked up in conjunction with an earlier day’s badge.

Badge Confirmation

You will need your Comic-Con 2022 badge confirmation and a valid photo ID to pick up your badge on-site. To access your badge confirmation, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and select "My Orders" from your Account Dashboard. Locate your badge order for Comic-Con 2022 and click the yellow "Details" button. Click the blue "Resend Confirmation" button, verify the email address is correct, then click "Send".

Preview Night

Preview Night takes place Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at the San Diego Convention Center. You cannot attend Preview Night without a 4-Day with Preview Night badge. 4-Day badges and single-day badges for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday will not be admitted. You may not attend Preview Night unless you purchased the Preview Night option during online registration, no exceptions.

Convention Hours

Comic-Con opens at 9:30 AM Thursday through Sunday. The Exhibit Hall closes at 7:00 PM Thursday through Saturday and at 5:00 PM on Sunday, but there are programmed events continuing until late in the evening Thursday through Saturday at both the Convention Center and some off-site locations like the Marriott Marquis and Hilton Bayfront. Professionals, program participants, and members of the press do not get early access to the convention, the Exhibit Hall, or any Comic-Con event with a professional or press badge.

Child Badges

Children (ages 12 and under) are free with a paying adult. Children do not need to register for a Comic-Con Member ID to receive a badge. You may register a child on-site for free at the Registration Area if accompanied by a paying adult. Children must be present to be registered for a badge and you will be required to provide emergency contact information for any child registrant age 12 and under. You can register a child on-site during the hours listed above for the paying adult’s badge. For more information, please click here. Note: All children ages 5 and older will be required to follow the COVID-19 policy.

Please keep your badge secure and safe at all times. Lost badges may be replaced on-site for a nominal fee. Professionals, program participants, and members of the press can receive a replacement badge at their corresponding desks located in the Sails Pavilion. Attendees can visit the Badge Solutions Desk in the Sails Pavilion to receive a replacement badge. There are RFID Help Desks available in Lobbies A, D, and G that can replace lost badges as well.
