Professional Registration Info

Comic-Con 2023 Professional Badge Registration is now open! All NOT DUE professionals are guaranteed a badge for Comic-Con 2023, but you must register online during the professional registration period. Comic-Con 2023 Professional Badge Registration closes on June 23, 2023.

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.

Professional Registration Instructions:
Under the “Professionals” menu at the top of the page, click “Comic-Con 2023 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.
Your allotment will show some combination of complimentary guest badges and paid guest badges. The number and pricing of available guest badges will be noted as you register.
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 5!
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.

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 “Checkout” in the bottom right corner.
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 check mark 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.
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”.

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”.

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

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.
Congratulations, you’re registered for Comic-Con 2023!

All badges registered by May 12, 2023 will be mailed to the “Primary Shipping Address” on file in the registering professional’s Comic-Con Member ID account. We are unable to ship to an international address.  Badges registered after May 12, 2023, and badges with international addresses must be picked up on-site by the registering professional.


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.

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.
