If you've been to the San Diego Comic-Con International event in years past, then I presume you have received your emails chronicling the new process involving creating a new ticket-purchasing account and then how to deal with the process of buying tickets when the time comes to do such.
If you are someone who has never been to Comic-Con, but you have been considering the idea of attending, you need to know some things.
The Comic-Con attendee registration is necessary, but it closes on February 28th. You can go to the Comic-Con Attendee Registration page NOW.
Then, your new ID will be your login info for subsequent interactions with the website.
With that all said, I then received an email today from the Comic-Con International org with some info about the ticketing process for registered users. It has this to say...
Because of limited space at the San Diego Convention Center, we are required to limit attendance and do not have enough badges for everyone who would like to attend the show. Unfortunately, the high demand and limited availability can make buying a badge challenging and time-consuming. Although we are working hard on our registration system to make buying your badge a better experience, we want you to know what to expect during badge sales and have provided you with a very detailed document “Comic-Con 2012 Helpful Hints and Tips for Online Badge Registration” available for download now at http://www.comic-con.org/cci/
