RFID is Back!

New York Comic Con will once again be using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Badges in 2016. These Badges will be individual and personalized with your NYCC-ID. This means each NYCC-ID Badge contains a 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 chip also ensures that villainous scalpers can’t sell you a crappy, wannabe NYCC Badge. If you’re caught with a counterfeit Badge you’ll be asked to leave NYCC 2016 immediately. It sounds harsh, but we’re cracking down on the crooks.

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 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.
