SDCC Pushes Back Badge Registration for 2014

SDCC 2014 Registration

Citing the need for EPIC registration to fine tune their process, Comic-Con International has announced that 2014 badge registration will not occur in November. Registered members should stay tuned in December as they are only promised a 48 hour prior notice to the registration system going live. You can read the whole announcement via the Toucan blog below:

We wanted to give everyone a heads up that 2014 badge preregistration for Comic-Con will not occur in November. EPIC registration is fine tuning the process and needs a little more time to make sure everything is in order. As soon as we have a better idea of the timeline we will let everyone know at least 48 hours prior to preregistration going live. So in the meantime, please relax and enjoy your upcoming Thanksgiving weekend!

And while the team at EPIC Registration is working hard this weekend, here are some steps you can take to get ready for the big day.

1. Confirm that you are eligible to participate in badge preregistration.

If you are a junior, senior, or member of the military, make sure that your Membership Type reflects this status so you are shown the available discounts on the day of the sale. If your Membership Type is listed as “Adult,” you will not receive the discount.

3. Do not “opt-out” of emails from Comic-Con.
This information is found in the “Change My Preferences/Unsubscribe” section once you have logged in to your Member ID account. If you have selected to “opt-out” of email notifications from Comic-Con, you will not be notified of the preregistration sale date and time.
