Professional Registration Info

Comic-Con 2022 Supplemental Professional Badge Registration is now open! All NOT DUE professionals are guaranteed a badge for Comic-Con 2022, but you must register during the professional online registration period. Comic-Con 2022 Professional Badge Registration closes on July 8, 2022.

If you intend to register a guest, please remember that all professional guests must have their own unique and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. A Comic-Con Member ID is free and you only need to sign up once! We encourage you to have your guest sign up for a Member ID as soon as possible. You will not be able to register a guest without knowing their Comic-Con Member ID.

STEP 1:  Determine if you have already registered badges for Comic-Con 2022

Many of you already have badges for yourself and guests by virtue of registering for Comic-Con 2020 and having these badges rolled over to this year’s show.  To determine if you have a badge and any guests for Comic-Con 2022, log into your Member ID and click “My Badges.” Comic-Con 2022 badges that have rolled over from 2020 will appear as follows:

STEP 2A: Click the “View Details / Manage Add-Ons” button under your Comic-Con 2022 Professional Badge order.  This will show you any guest badges that are available for you to register.

Your allotment will show some combination of complimentary guest badges and/or paid guest badges.  The number and pricing of available guest badges are the same for each account as they were for Comic-Con 2020.
A complimentary guest badge allotted will look like this:

A paid guest badge allotted will look like this:



If multiple guest badges of a given type are in your allotment, there will be a selector with a number in it that will allow you to select the number of that guest badge type that you wish to register.  For example, this allotment includes 2 paid guests. 

STEP 3A: For each guest badge that you would like to register, check the “Add to Cart” button above that badge.  When all badges you wish to register are selected, click “Save” in the bottom right corner.
STEP 4A: For each guest badge, add your guest’s Member ID and last name, then click “Search.”  If you correctly input your guest’s Member ID and last name, it will show up with a checkmark next to it.  If you did not, you will be prompted to correct your entry and search again.

Once all of your guest badges have names and Member IDs associated with them, click “Save & Continue” at the bottom of the page. 
STEP 5A: Carefully read our badge registration terms and conditions and COVID-19 policy. Select the “I agree to the above statement” checkbox, and then “Save & Continue”.
STEP 6A: Next, you will be brought to the payment screen.  If your balance at this step is $0.00, click “Save & Continue” again to continue to the next step; otherwise, enter your payment information on this screen, then click “Save & Continue.”

STEP 7A: You are ready to check out! Ensure that all details shown are correct, then click “Process Order” to finalize your guest badge registration.

Congratulations, your guest badges are registered!
STEP 2B: Under the “Professionals” menu at the top of the page, click “Comic-Con 2022 Professional Registration.”  This will take you to the first page of the badge registration process.


Confirm that you are signed in under your own account, and click “Add to Cart” at the bottom of the page.  This will add your own professional badge to your cart, and take you to the next step.
STEP 3B: Your allotment will show some combination of complimentary guest badges and paid guest badges.  The number and pricing of available guest badges are the same for each account as they were for Comic-Con 2020.
NOTE: If you are only registering your own professional badge and do not wish to register any guest badges, click “Checkout” on this page without adding any guests to your cart and skip to step 6B!

STEP 9B: When your registration is complete, you will see a confirmation screen that lists your professional badge and guest badge, if any. You will also receive an order receipt email after your registration is complete. If you registered a guest, they will receive a separate order receipt email.
Please be sure to bring the barcode confirmation email, not the order receipt email, to the Industry Registration Area of the San Diego Convention Center to pick up your badge and guest badge. On-site pick-up hours and locations can be found here.
Congratulations, you’re registered for Comic-Con 2022!
RECOMMENDED BROWSER SETTINGS:

Attempting to purchase badges using multiple tabs within the same browser will confuse the badge registration system and cause your transaction to fail. Only use one browser tab when trying to purchase badges.

Your browser should have JavaScript and cookies enabled to function reliably with the badge registration system. These features are usually enabled in the default configuration of most modern web browsers. If you do not have these features enabled, the registration system may not function properly.

A note about mobile devices:

The badge registration system is not formatted for iPad 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.

 

THE FINE PRINT:
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 operations 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.
