And it's over. All badges for San Diego Comic-Con 2019 have been sold.
Friday is gone.
Saturday is gone. Slow moving sale.
Preview Night is gone.
Just got a panicked text from someone who can't find their code - as in, they can't find the CCI email with the link and code. If this is you, remember that your unique registration code is also listed in your Member ID account. Just log in and click on the Registration Info tab. You'll see your eligibility status and your code.
Our own personal Hunger Games are just an hour away. Are you ready??
There's been a lot of talk about demand for next year. My observations:
- It's seemed like the SDCC mania has abated just slightly over the past few years; quite a few people I talked to this summer said they wouldn't return. Yet all but one of them changed their mind.
- With the CCI hullabaloo over SDCC50, we may have more combatants than usual. However, I don't think your average bear is thinking about San Diego Comic-Con in November or tuned in to the early SDCC50 campaigns.
- Many of us perceived a drop in the usual number of Returning Registration spots and theorized that maybe more badges would be available in Open Reg.
One last-minute tip. If you're managing multiple sessions for people today, make sure you know exactly whose code goes with what session. Obviously you want to be fair, but it can also help if you run into problems. One year I had to contact CCI about a person who never got a badge despite my going through the system and they asked what registration code was used for the session. So it can matter.
Good luck. I'll post what I find out.
