Professional Registration Info

To register for a Comic-Con 2017 creative professional badge, PLEASE CLICK HERE. You will need your Comic-Con Member ID and last name. Complimentary professional guest badges have reached capacity. Paid professional guest badges are still available. The deadline to register for a badge is May 12, 2017.

    Trade professional badge registration will open at a later date. Verified trade professionals will be notified via email when trade professional badges are available for purchase. Trade professionals may not register for a Comic-Con badge at this time.

    Paid professional guest badges can be used to register an adult or junior guest (age 13 to 17). The badge price is the same ($265), whether the guest is a junior or an adult, when purchased through professional registration. Children age 12 and under are free with a professional badge and do not count toward your guest limit. Child badges must be registered onsite at Industry Registration.

    When you begin your registration session, you will need to enter your professional Comic-Con Member ID and last name. This includes any special characters like an accent or enye (ñ). To review your registration login information, log in to your Member ID account and select the "Professionals" tab.
    When you reach the badge selection page, all available badge inventory will be shown. Please keep in mind that badge inventory will not refresh while you are on this page. If your desired guest badge type is unavailable, select another category or close your registration session. 
    *Important* It is critical that you do not use your browser’s back button during any step of your registration session! Using the back button at any point during the registration process could potentially cause the system to error out or release your badges back into inventory. Comic-Con International cannot guarantee that your registration session will behave as expected if you use your back button during any step of the registration process.
    The online badge registration system has been tested on the following browsers. We cannot guarantee your results should you use a browser not listed below:
    Firefox: Any Version
    Google Chrome: Any Version
    Internet Explorer: Version 8 or later
    Safari: Any Version
    Attempting to register for badges online using multiple browser tabs can confuse the badge registration process and cause your transaction to fail. Only use one browser tab when trying to register for badges, in order to avoid technical difficulties with your transaction.
    The online badge registration system is not formatted for iPads, tablets, or mobile devices. Although mobile devices have been tested and can be used to register for a badge during professional registration, Comic-Con is unable to guarantee that the registration system will behave as expected using a mobile device.
    While Comic-Con has made every effort to make the badge registration experience fair for everyone, it is possible that problems outside of our control could result in the system not working as planned. The possibility exists that anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware software may aggressively block browser cookies, JavaScript, or other operation of modern web applications. It is also possible that user error, specific hardware problems, local ISP issues, or simply the extremely high level of demand beyond our control may result in your computer and/or browser not behaving as described above. While Comic-Con has done extensive testing, we make no guarantees that your efforts will result in a successful badge registration regardless of when you enter the process.
