Comic-Con 2013: It’s a wide, wide fantasy (and marketing) world

Comic-Con 2013: It’s a wide, wide fantasy (and marketing) worldSAN DIEGO — Comic-Con International is making some changes in its registration and ticketing process for its 2014 San Diego expo, including eliminating the extremely popular four-day badges.

Only single-day badges will be sold for this year’s convention, which runs July 24-27 at San Diego’s waterfront convention center.

People who want to attend Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday will have to purchase a badge for each day, Comic-Con explained on its website. Only those who purchase badges for all four days will be eligible to buy a badge for Wednesday’s Preview Night, which is not a stand-alone badge option. Attendees who purchase badges for all four days will be able to consolidate them into one four-day badge onsite.

In addition, ticket prices have increased for 2014, with single-day badges for adults costing $35 for Preview Night, $45 for Thursday-Saturday badges (up from $42 in 2013) and $30 for Sunday (up from $24). People who attend all four days and Preview Night this year will pay $200; last year’s four-day badge with Preview Night cost $175.

Dates for preregistration have yet to be announced but are expected to occur this month. Those who are eligible to preregister will be notified via email at least 48 hours prior to the sale. Open online registration for the general public, as well as for professionals, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and press, will occur at a later date.
