RFID is Back!

New York Comic Con will be using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Badges again in 2015. These Badges will be individual and personalized with your NYCC-ID. This means each NYCC-ID Badge contains a unique microchip that is unique to only your Badge. This little chip is being integrated to make your NYCC experience better, smoother, easier, safer and more fun! This little chip also ensures pesky counterfeiters can’t sell you a crappy, wannabe NYCC Badge. If you’re caught with a counterfeit Badge you’ll be asked to leave NYCC 2015 immediately. It sounds harsh, but we’re cracking down on the crooks to make your experience 100x cooler!

Activate your NYCC-ID Badge

Badge Activation is required for NYCC 2015. Activate your Badge now to unlock special features, show exclusives and sync it up with your social profiles. Registering your NYCC-ID with your social media profile is a breeze! But don’t worry, this doesn’t mean we’ll post on your social pages on your behalf. We’ll leave the NYCC 2015 bragging to you.

Once you activate your NYCC-ID be sure to remove the activation sticker on the front of your Badge.

How To Use Your NYCC-ID Badge

There’s one last thing you should know about your NYCC-ID Badge. You’re going to have to tap your Badge with a member of the NYCC-ID Patrol (they’re those crew members you will see holding scanners at all the entrances and exits at the show). When you enter the building, you MUST tap your NYCC-ID Badge. When you exit the building, you MUST tap it again on your way out. You can practice tapping your NYCC-ID Badge before you get to NYCC. When your cat walks by, tap it. When your little brother walks by, tap him. Make sure you teach your friends how to tap their NYCC-ID Badges too, so they’ll be ready to go when they get to NYCC!

You may be asked to tap your New York Comic Con Badge by Exhibitors and/or Sponsors. Tapping your NYCC Badge is totally optional, but when you do tap your Badge with an Exhibitor or Sponsor, you’re opting into receiving info from them. You will be subject to their communications and privacy policy and will have to opt out with them directly if you decide later to do so.
