Anyone else think that SDCC and NYCC had a secret meeting last year?

So do pros that were already approved have to create a profile to use their ticket?

i'm not sure this will be the case-  while i'm sure there will be some who don't create a profile, I'm actually thinking this will up the 'frantic-ness' by the other attendee's.

Sorry, I stand corrected... you are right about 3 weeks. i was just thinking May to the end of June. Wasn't looking at the date of the 13th. 3 Weeks is rediculous, especially if people are not looking for it.

I don't see how it can be frantic. Clearly the die hard VIP's all seem less interested. Those people paid for VIP for a reason and now that reason is gone. It's not like there will be less regular badges, if anything there will be more. People might pretend to be frantic, but being you need a member ID now and you have 3 weeks to sign up, the tickets will take a long time to sell out.

I said it here first... mark my words. They will open up new member id's for new badge purchases sometime after the original badge sale because they will have realized they did not notify people properly (or given them enough time) and there will be a lot of unsold badges...

I get that it was turning into San Diego Comic Con for a couple of years now but this is straight up copying them. :)

So what's the real reason for eleminating VIP, I don't buy the fairness angle much especially since they were profitable.

I plan on making note of a lack of VIP access in this year's survey and hope others do the same Witt the hopes of bringing it back!

The sale can't be June 15.  They send the notification email to the one registered in your fan verification.  Fan verification is open until 11:59 on June 13.  If it was June 15, they couldn't give 48 hours notice to the people who signed up for a verification at the last minute.

Given ReedPop likes Wednesdays, I'm thinking June 22.  When I won't have computer access.

I found this quote from Lance Fensterman interesting.

Quote
Of the end of VIP tickets, Fensterman says “We felt it was a bit incongruent with our belief of putting fans first, and also it was hard to put together a high level personal experience at an event of the scale of NYCC, so it was the right time  to return those tickets to the pool.” Less than a thousand VIP tickets have been sold in recent years, so it wasn’t a huge program to begin with.

Looks like ReedPop wants to spread out the impact of NYCC on the Manhattan landscape. While this can accommodate more fans, it may lessen the feel of a convention, where most things take place in a central location. I grew up in NYC, and for me, Brooklyn is a bit far away to still maintain the feel of being at a convention where the main events happen in 'the city'. 

But then it is a for-profit event.  I have mixed feelings about this.

I too have mixed feelings about having a lot of nighttime activities in different areas.   The idea is to have everything in a close central location so your only travel time is getting to the convention.

Glad I'm not going this year. I'm interested to see how it all plays out for future years though.

Sounds like a public relations type answer. I wonder what they were really saying behind closed doors.

I'm sick that there are no vip tickets.
I'll still go this year but the VIP access was the one thing that put nycc at the top of my list, as far as comic con's go.
I think we should rent a booth if available just so we can store our bags and get in early.
