Isn't open registration for people who didn't have tickets the year before. And returning registration is for people who did. So there's still a chance us people with tickets can pick up an extra day? Email says no open registration doesn't say anything about returning registration

They could also auction off the badges refunded from 2020 on eBay to raise money for the museum.

How much do those usually end up selling for?

In 2019, I’ve seen it sold for as low as $600 to a high of $6000 for a 4 day badge.  Hope that helps.

For Archive. A brief synopsis of CCI statements for discussion.


 "Sentences" added as emphasis only.


Quote
Apr 27, 2020 (also seen in Member ID Notices tab)



"Additionally, due to the option of allowing Comic-Con 2020 badge holders to transfer their badges to Comic-Con 2021, there will be no Returning Registration for Comic-Con 2021."

"Depending on the number of refund requests received, there may be reduced inventory for sale in the fall of 2020."

Recent webpage text update.

"Due to the continuing uncertainly of public gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no badge sales for Comic-Con 2021."

"With the cancellation of Comic-Con 2020, badge holders were given the option to either receive a refund or rollover their badge for Comic-Con 2021, for this reason we do not believe it is possible to sell additional badges at this time."

"Additional Information on Purchasing Badges

The information below was for the Comic-Con 2020 badge sale and is for reference only. There will be no badge sales for Comic-Con 2021."



Email response only.



"Thank you for your email.


Due to the continuing uncertainty of public gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no Open Registration for Comic-Con 2021."

"With the cancellation of Comic-Con 2020, badge holders were given the option to either receive a refund or rollover their badge for Comic-Con 2021, for this reason we do not believe it is possible to sell additional badges at this time."

I’m sort of thinking they are going to try to have a con next year but want to mitigate the number of attendees.  I also think they are counting on a vaccine being available between Spring and Summer 2021.

I think the money from the official auction last year  on eBay went to the Comic-Con Museum.

Sorry, I'm still a little confused.  What am I missing. 

"...at this time" implies things could change down the road (IMO).  If there is definitely not going to be a badge sale, I would remove that phrase altogether.

I was hoping they'd at least recognize our badge rollover in our accounts by now.

The Geek Speak Show recently posted an audio interview with David Glanzer (Oct 21, 2020) with some discussion regarding next year's show.

The verbiage allows them to be flexible, if something, for whatever reason, changes.

I'm less concerned bout this and more about hotelpocalypse...

It's standard business/organization language.  Such as "we can't fulfill your order at this time", "there will be no enforcement action at this time" and "there are no positions that are a good fit at this time".  Always leave a way out.

Gee my post aged well, lol.  There is no con in 2021 and a vaccine was released last December!
