SDCC 2017 Open Registration Date Announced – April 8th

By Transmute Jun

Comic Con International (CCI) has announced the date of open registration for San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2017, to be held July 20-23, with Preview Night on July 19. While the returning registration sale that was held on March 11 was for 2016 attendees only, the open registration sale is available to anyone with a Member ID account. You can login to your Member ID account here. Note that the Member ID system may close without warning before open registration begins. Open registration its scheduled for Saturday, April 8 at 9 am Pacific time. You will want to sign in to the waiting room between 8:00 and 8:45 am the morning of the sale. A link to the waiting room will be emailed to all eligible Member ID accounts (that’s anyone who does not already have a Preview Night badge from returning registration) before the sale.  

Badge prices have increased slightly since 2016, with a Preview Night badge costing $45, Thursday, Friday and Saturday badges costing $60 each, and Sunday badges costing $40. Note that you cannot purchase a Preview Night badge unless you are also purchasing all 4 other days. This means that to attend all 4 days of SDCC 2017, you will pay $220 without Preview Night, or $265 with Preview Night.

As in prior years, if you reach the purchase screen, you will be able to purchase up to 3 badges. Everyone for whom you buy a badge must be eligible for open registration and have a Member ID account. However, new this year, badges will be mailed to each attendee directly. So if you purchase a badge for 2 other people besides yourself, each of you will have your badges mailed individually.
