Your unique registration code, the Expo Logic waiting room link, and instructions on how to participate will be available in your Comic-Con Member ID account at least 24 hours prior to the sale. Starting March 10, 2017, you may log in to your Member ID account and select the “Registration Info” tab to view your personal registration code and link to the waiting room.

As mentioned in our prior post badges will be shipped to the member address. Make sure your address information is correct in the member ID area to ensure the badge is shipped to your correct address. Again international members will have to pick up their badges in person.
