SDCC 2022 Pro Registration

(1/55) > >>

scottydizzy:

I've emailed SDCC, but wondering if anyone here might have insight if a new Professional Registration window for the 2022 show will happen.

My Professional status is active for a couple of more years, but the 2020 show was cancelled before I registered for it, so I had no badge to rollover. I'm just curious if there will be a new Pro Reg window for those of us that never registered for 2020 before the cancellation.

Thanks in advance!

This is some absolute B.S. from SDCC:

"Thank you for contacting us. Only registrants who previously registered a Comic-Con 2020 badge, and requested that their badges be rolled over to our next show, have badges for Comic-Con 2022.  Due to the high percentage of rollovers, we do not anticipate that additional badges will be available for that show."

This is incredibly disappointing SDCC's part. So because a global pandemic and cancellation of the 2020 show didn't allow me to register a Pro badge (even though I had another month left in the window to get that registration), I now get screwed out of this year's show AND it counts against me as a year to provide verification materials?

There was no indication given at the time of the 2020 cancellation that this would be the result of not having registered for a professional badge, only that those who had could take no action and let it roll over to the next show or get a refund and try again when the world opened back up.

This is a truly horrible way to treat people who have been loyal to SDCC for over a decade.

Looks like a copy and paste from general.  You have the email from 2020 telling pros they have until xxx date to register?

I do find it interesting that they think most people will roll over and not have extras. I know several people that requested refunds, I wonder what happens to those badges.

Yes and someone is responding. Here is that and my follow up (which I just sent)

"We will pass your feedback on to those who made such decisions.  We are sorry that we don't have a better answer for you.

Professional Registration
Comic-Con"

Yes, please do tell them. It is unfathomable that those of us that still had an open window to register, are just being swept under the rug. Not even given a chance to register for 2022 after all that has happened in the past 2 years?!

There cannot possibly be enough rollover when my 2020 badge was GUARANTEED:
Comic-Con 2020 Professional Badge Registration is Now Open! (11/8/2019)
"Remember, your badge allotment is guaranteed until professional badge registration closes on May 6, 2020, and will not be on a first-come, first-served basis! You do not need to register today; take your time and register at your earliest convenience."
Now these words are being used against us. I waited and the show got cancelled and now I'm being shut out because I followed your instructions.
I understand that whoever is responding to this is just fielding emails and whatnot and the responses are appreciated, but these sweeping decisions against Professionals is very difficult to understand.
TELL THEM TO RECTIFY THIS!
