Let's review
Volunteer Registration opened

Pros did not get the hotel lottery link

Hotel Group 1 deadline passed

Hotel Group 2 Deadline passed

Volunteers learn their results
Parking  Lottery started

Pros were given the Hotel open link after the deadline saying it would be 2 weeks.

The promised registration deadline has passed.

The parking results were emailed and Pros still do not have registration


This is a disrespect.

I'd like to add to the disrespect that I've contacted both the general SDCC email and the Professional Registration email after the promised 2 weeks ended and have not gotten anything but an automated reply.

This narrative that some professionals 'rolled the dice' waiting during the original registration window when it was CCI itself that said "no need to rush, your badge allotment is guaranteed" is both ignorant and infuriating.

My main concern at this point is whether they'll do registration in time to mail out badges.

No, we'll have to pick them up. An inconvenience to be sure, but hopefully with the nifty box and pin that is mailed out.

But honestly I just want the registration window to open.

I am thinking because they have to verify all the COVID stuff they might make everyone pick their badges up - which means long lines - longer than Hall H!

In my case, I also paid for my own Pro Guest badge so if my Pro can't come the first day or two, I hope they don't have a rule that only the pro can pick the guest badges - otherwise, I will out a couple of hundred bucks if I remember.

They did the COVID verification for Wondercon as well, and they still shipped badges. I received my badge in the mail, then stood in a relatively short line when I arrived at Wondercon to show my ID/vax proof to get the COVID wristband. It went really smoothly at Wondercon so fingers crossed SDCC is the same!

I attended a large Prof conference in Portland this spring and badge holders got an email about 2 weeks ahead with links to connect your vax data (from your state’s health dept) and once verified, badges were good.  People with exceptions stood in line on site, but most of us just did it online—company was called SafeExpo.  I wonder if SDCC is doing this kind of process?

I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since their email and still no movement on pro badges.

I emailed again asking for any update since a full week has passed from that "within two weeks" advisement.

Next will be calling.

Yup another reason to be concerned about the July 8th deadline.

In the past, before they started mailing out badges, it was the case that only the pros could pick up guest badges. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm 90% sure of this.

True and that's how it was currently for Wondercon 2022.

CCI sent multiple reminder emails about making sure your shipping address was up to date for SDCC 2022, so there's no reason to believe they won't ship badges to everyone who had a registered badge before 5/14/22.

Obviously that's no comfort for the professionals still waiting to register. And I would assume that the pick-up process for anyone who does end up needing to pick up badges on site will remain the same - meaning the pro will have to be present to receive all badges registered through their account.

No, CCI said they were going to reopen registration for those that already registered who also want to add/change guests. That 5/14/22 date is meaningless for pros.

It might still be meaningful for pros who were already registered.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Yes, I understand it's meaningless as a registration date. But I didn't think CCI had said anything to the pros specifically about badge shipping. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

So I meant - whatever type of badge you have, if it's usually shipped to you and you were registered before CCI's stated address change cutoff of 5/14, then there's no reason to think your badge will not be shipped this year.

If your badge is usually shipped to you but you weren't in the system by 5/14, then... who knows. CCI might decide to ship those badges (and I certainly hope they do, the unregistered pros have already had to jump through a lot of hoops!). But they also might make you pick them up. As far as I'm aware CCI hasn't directly addressed that issue.
