**Tuesday badge pick-up is for international attendees only. If you did not receive your badge in the mail due to an international address, you may pick up your badge starting Tuesday, July 17, or on any other day listed above.

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.
  • We do offer next day badge pick-up for single day bages 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.
