I know your nerves are going haywire right now over the hand of Comic-Con fate that will descend on us in 2 days. But here's something else to think about - and work into your conversations - over the next few days and weeks.
We don't know yet when Open Registration is, but we do know last year it was well before the holidays. We also know CCI shuts down Member ID registration before the open badge sale. So if you have any friends, beaux or family you'd like to bring along next summer, make sure they register for their own Member ID soon.
There's going to be quite a bit of press about SDCC 50, so it's possible interest in next summer's Con may be even higher than normal. Make sure you do everything you can to help out your first-timer friends who want to go next July.
