Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration is Near!

Comic-Con International Registration Update

Oh, my fur and whiskers! Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration is on the way and we’re here to make sure you’re prepped and ready. Not much has changed, but let’s review and get the very merry unbirthday party started! We know you’re probably thinking, “how can one possibly pay attention to a book with no pictures in it?” It’s simple! Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end, then stop.

As usual, Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration is open to Comic-Con 2018 paid attendees. First time attendees, professionals, guests of professionals (paid or complimentary), exhibitors (and exhibitor-purchased attendee badges), retailers, the Queen of Hearts, volunteers, staff, complimentary passes, the Mad Hatter, and press are not eligible to participate in Returning Registration. Registration for these categories will occur at a later date.

How will you know if you’re eligible? First, go this way, then down, then that way, back, and this way again. Next, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and look in the top-right corner. If you see a green checkmark that says, “OK CCI’19 Paid Attendee Return Reg” then you’re good to go! Finally, celebrate with a some EAT ME cookies. Just make sure you’re outside!

The Returning Registration badge sale will again take place through the Expo Logic waiting room. Your registration code and link will be sent via email and will also be available in your Comic-Con Member ID account under the “Registration Info” tab sometime soon. You can purchase badges for up to three people – yourself included! Each person must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID and must be eligible to participate in Returning Registration. Make sure you have their information ready or you could find yourself wondering, “whoooo areeee youuuu” during the sale.

And, as always, Comic-Con will continue to offer one of the most generous child badge policies in Wonderland the industry. Children ages 12 and under are free with a paid adult.

Well, the time has come to talk of other things – of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and badge shipping information and updates.

In an effort to reduce lost, returned, and undeliverable badges, we have introduced a simple process to verify your badge shipping address! Please log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, choose the “Contact Info” tab, and select the “Verify Shipping Address” option. Upon verification, your address will turn green and a checkmark will display. After all, no wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise ... or without verifying their shipping address.

You must log in and verify your badge shipping address by May 13, 2019 to have your badge shipped in advance. Don’t be late! Late! For this very important date! We are unable to mail badges to an unverified shipping address. If you’re having trouble verifying your badge shipping address, don’t cry and create a pool of tears! Review that you have entered everything correctly. If everything is correct and your address still won’t verify, have a cup of tea and use the green “Contact Us” feature in your Comic-Con Member ID account for assistance. The Queen of Hearts has decreed that you do this well in advance of the May 13, 2019 badge shipping address verification deadline.

We are unable to ship to international addresses, including Tugley Wood (we prefer to avoid the Jubjub Bird and Bandersnatch when we can.) If you are an international attendee, you may pick up your badge when you arrive onsite, or you may choose to have your badge shipped to a domestic address of your choice by utilizing the “Badge Shipping Address” feature.

One more thing: make sure to take a peek at both your home and shipping addresses. Your badge will be sent to the badge shipping address only. Changing your home address will not change your shipping address!

Now, that wasn’t so bad! Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.
