Here’s a little round-up of San DIego’s two mayoral candidates, running to fill the seat left vacant when serial groper/haarasser Bob Filner got the boot. Both support the convention center expansion but lawsuits may mean it will be years before groundbreaking begins on the planned expansion, meaning…Comic-COn will stay compact for now.

Meanwhile, letters have gone out warning that pro-reg starts on the 29th, however:

EPIC Online Professional Badge Registration does not have a predetermined close date and will close – without prior notification  – when professional registration has reached capacity and badges are no longer available. 


In other words, it’s time for Pro Reg-o-ween. Gentleman and women, rev your browsers!

Trade Professional Badge-o-ween will take place later on—this is the classification for non-comics pros who are involved in those entertainment booths, in case you were wondering. From what we’ve heard, support staff for those booths get just as hinky and panicky about their own registration process. There is no such thing as a free lunch…unless you get into the media lounge, that is.

    Just to nitpick, although it’s true that “Trade Professional” status is afforded to non-comics professionals, it’s also the case that “Trade Professionals” can also include comics pros who work in non-creative roles: sales, marketing, bus dev, etc.

    The distinction between CCI’s two professional statuses — Creative Professional and Trade Professionals — isn’t really comics vs. non-comics professionals. It’s really about folks who work in pop culture businesses in creative roles and those who work in those businesses in non-creative roles.

  2. How will this impact me seeing the cast of The Big Bang Theory from 1000 feet away?

  4. Professional registration accomplished successfully! Sadly, however, I was unable to also obtain a complimentary guest pass for my wife as the registration website informed me that complimentary guest passes were “no longer available.” So we had to shell out $200 for one. This, by the way, was within minutes of the registration website going on-line — there must have been THOUSANDS of professionals attempting to register!
    Anyway, it’s all done now, hooray! Except, of course, for the mad free-for-all that’ll take place when the hotel booking section goes on-line (fingers crossed that will happen sooner rather than later: there’s no point booking the flights until we’re sure we have a hotel, and the cost of flights rises considerably the closer we get to the departure date…).

  5. Those complimentary guest badges seemed to run out in the first 20 minutes or so just like last year. I’d love to find out what the exact number offered is.
