Comic-Con International

Comic-Con International is proud to welcome attendees, professionals, exhibitors, retailers, volunteers, and members of the press each year to the beautiful San Diego Convention Center. Attending Comic-Con is an exhilarating and unforgettable experience, but it also requires some forethought and planning.

On the menu to the left you will find helpful information about purchasing Comic-Con badges, registering as a professional, volunteer, retailer, or member of the press, and popular onsite activities like Preview Night, the blood drive, and Comic-Con exclusives. You will also find valuable information regarding hotels, disabled services, and child care. If it isn't there right now, don't worry ... it will be as we closer to the event!

Although we strive to make attending our show as easy as possible, obtaining a Comic-Con badge can require the persistence of Superman, the patience of a Watcher, the ingenuity of Tony Stark, and the readiness of Batman. We strongly recommend that you read each section related to attending Comic-Con so that you don't miss any important deadlines for registration. As the event nears, we will also post an  specific details on how to navigate Comic-Con and where to find your favorite activities, including program schedules, maps, and an online version of our Quick Guide publication.

We truly appreciate your interest in Comic-Con, and we look forward to seeing you in July!
