It's the Badges You’ve Been Looking For!

Comc-Con 2016 Registration Update

Comic-Con 2016 attendee badges will begin shipping this week to all those who participated in Attendee Preregistration and Open Online Registration. When your badges are shipped, you will receive an email confirmation that lets you know they are on their way! All badges will be shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS) First Class Mail and will arrive in a plain white non-descript envelope, so make sure to sort your mail carefully and do not throw them away by accident. Attendee badges will be shipped in batches, so it is likely that a friend/family member may receive their badge order before or after you.

Did you buy badges for others? Did you buy badges in both Attendee Preregistration and Open Online Registration? We encourage you to read all of the information on our Badge Shipping page regarding badge shipment for those who had multiple buyers or participated in both sales.

International attendees will receive a barcode confirmation email in early July that they can exchange onsite for their badge. You will need your barcode confirmation and a photo ID to pick up your badge. Please visit our Badge Pick-Up page for more information about onsite badge pick up. The Attendee Registration Area has moved this year, and will be located in the Pacific Ballroom of the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel at 333 W Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.

If you are a registered professional, trade professional, or member of the press, your badges have shipped and are on their way! You will receive an email confirmation when they have shipped. If your badges do not arrive or if you have any issues with your order, please visit Lobby D of the San Diego Convention Center when you arrive. Industry Registration will remain in Lobby D for Comic-Con 2016.

Thank you for your patience and support as we ship out badges for the first time in many years. If your badge does not arrive within 7 to 10 business days from the date of your shipping confirmation email, please contact us at and be sure to include your full name and Comic-Con Member ID.
