Industry Registration

Please review the following information regarding NYCC Industry badges carefully.

NYCC welcomes professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide an Industry badge to approved artists, buyers, creators, editors, educators, librarians, licensors, producers, publishers, tastemakers, retailers and writers currently working or retired from comics and popular arts. Due to the volume of applications, we cannot provide Industry badges to support staff, such as administrative staff, facilities, IT, operations and others who are not directly involved in the creative process.

Also, just because you were granted a professional badge in the past does not guarantee you will be approved this year.

Your Industry badge will not get you:

  • Early access into the building, special access or guaranteed seating
  • The ability to cut lines
  • Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket
  • Access to exhibitor exclusive lotteries

You will have access to My Show, panel lotteries, and off site panel venues such as Madison Square Garden, the Hammerstein Ballroom, and the New York Public Library.

The NYCC Industry registration period is now closed, and no late applications will be accepted, due to volume of applicants and limited number of Industry badges available. 

Librarians and educators have until Monday, June 25 at 11:59 PM ET to apply for their Industry badge.

Application Process

There will be NO onsite Industry registration. Should you wish to attend as a professional Industry badge holder, you MUST apply online and complete the full application.

Once your application is approved, you must purchase your Industry badge by Wednesday, August 15, 2018. Should you have any issues, please contact the NYCC Professional Email Inbox.

Industry Pricing

If your application is approved, you will be prompted by email to complete your registration by selecting either the free Thursday badge or the 4-day badge.

Applications that are not finalized by Wednesday, August 15, 2018 will be cancelled and a badge for NYCC 2018 will not be provided.

Your approval for an Industry badge at previous editions of NYCC does not guarantee you an Industry badge in 2018. Applying as a professional does not guarantee that you will be approved. You must complete the entire Industry badge application whether you have been approved previously or not.

All application decisions are final. NYCC reserves the right to approve or deny all applications. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. You will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved.

Each Industry badge is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your NYCC Industry badge, and any individuals conducting such behavior will have this badge cancelled and be disqualified from Industry badges at future ReedPOP events.
