Fast Sellout for ECCC 2019 4 Day Badges

by Transmute Jun

Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC) will hold its 2019 show March 14-17. Badges went on sale at noon Pacific time on October 17, only to have all 4-Day badges gone in about 10 minutes. Fans still in the virtual queue were shown a message stating that ‘All 4 day tickets are currently held.’

A few lucky fans got in after this time and were able to pick up 4-Day badges that had dropped out of people’s carts, but everything was gone before 12:20 pm Pacific time. This is the fastest 4-Day badge sellout in ECCC history, slightly behind the 12:13 pm sellout for ECCC 2018.

While ECCC still has very much a local feel, many attendees come from far away to attend. In particular, Funko has put this con on the map, with exclusives and special events. In 2018, Funko hosted a party for Funatics at its headquarters in nearby Everett, WA. ECCC is also well known for its strong comics, gaming, cosplay and literary programming.

If you want to attend ECCC, you can still buy single badges for all 4 days, although it doesn’t pay to linger. Con Block hotels are also available now.
