NYCC Exhibitor and Panel Reservations

Reservations Launch Date

Reservations for panels, exhibitor exclusives and private autographing will open in Fall of 2024. Check back soon for more information. 

What Are We Doing to Improve Reservations?

If you’ve attended NYCC before, you know this hasn’t always gone smoothly for us. This year we are using the same platform we utilize to sell our tickets, including a virtual queue hall to help us manage and limit traffic hitting the page at once.  

What Is A Reservation?

A NYCC Reservation is a way to guarantee your seat to see a Main Stage or Empire Stage panel, to secure your spot in line at your chance to buy this years’ latest Funko POP! and Exhibitor Exclusives, or to snag a free Private Autograph from some of our authors who will be at the show. This way, you'll be able to plan out your NYCC ahead of time rather than wait in another line, not knowing if you’ll get into that panel room or get your exclusive! Reservations are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What Do I Need to Make Reservations?

Want to make a reservation to see a Main Stage or Empire Stage panel? Maybe you’re looking to snag a Funko exclusive or another exhibitor exclusive? Here’s what you need to get started:

1. NYCC Tickets

2. Your NYCC ticket assigned to your email address

IMPORTANT: Enter your Fan Ver Hub (aka ShowClix’s My Tickets page) login info! This will be your email address and password used to access or accept your NYCC tickets.

If you don’t remember your login information or don’t have a password yet, please head to, enter the email attached to your NYCC tickets, and hit Forgot Password to reset your password. Once your password is reset and you’ve successfully logged into the Fan Ver Hub, come back here to log in for your NYCC 2024 Reservations.

The Fan Verification Hub will shut down at least two hours prior to each access time. Please be sure to have your email and password before that time or you will be unable to make reservations.

Where Can I See My Reservations Once They’re Made? 

Once you complete your reservations, you’ll receive an email confirmation that has all of your reservations listed. You can also find them by signing into My Tickets as well!


All you NEED to have is a valid NYCC ticket for the day of the reservations you want, and that ticket needs to be assigned to your email address and accepted by you in the Fan Ver Hub (aka ShowClix’s My Tickets site). You will need your Fan Ver Hub/My Tickets login information in order to enter the Reservation website. You can make sure you have access to your tickets and confirm your login information by heading to If you do not remember your password, hit Forgot Password to reset it and save those credentials for when Reservations launch! We HIGHLY recommend you also use that email address to Fan Verify as well if you haven’t yet! Fan Verification will give you access to an exclusive NYCC 2025 ticket presale.

No, each person needs to enter individually with their email address so make sure to sync up with your friends so you can reserve the things you want to do together.


Children under 12 will be permitted to enter with a parent. Seating may not be available and is first-come, first-served.

For exhibitor exclusives, please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start time. For panels in the Main Stage, please arrive to the Queue Hall in 1C (Level 1, Hall C) 35 minutes prior to the panel start time. For panels in the Empire Stage, please head up to Level 5 35 minutes prior to the panel start time.


Make sure you’re only adding in the Reservations you want. Once you’ve completed the Reservations process, you will not be able to remove anything you have selected.

These autographs are free and books may be brought from home. Additional books for signing may be purchased at our official bookseller in Hall 1B.

Everyone needs to make their own reservations separately. If you have not transferred tickets to your friends and/or family members’ email addresses, now is the time. You will only be able to make reservations for one of each badge type. For example, if you have two Friday tickets under your email address, you can only make reservations for ONE of those Friday tickets. The other Friday ticket will be unable to have reservations tied to them.

Nope. If you transfer your ticket, the reservations will no longer be available to that ticket. Each person must make their own reservations separately.

Yupp! The schedule is coming at you soon.

Nope, but you do need to have your badge purchased and assigned to your email address to make reservations. This lets us know that you have a valid NYCC badge and what days you're attending! Just make sure to activate your badge prior to entering NYCC so your reservations link to your physical badge.

No, but we'll keep in mind to add as a future benefit!

Yes! The Photo Op and Autograph schedule will be live so you can plan your NYCC reservations wisely!

Nope! If you purchased tickets for a separately ticketed panel, you do not need to make a reservation

Yes, the only reservations you do not need to make are for Main Stage and Empire Stage panels.

No. Panels that overlap cannot be reserved and you must be in line 35 minutes in advance to guarantee your reservation.

Reservations are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Fans are limited to one (1) Exhibitor exclusive PER THE WHOLE SHOW, and one (1) Funko booth entry PER THE WHOLE SHOW.

Fans can reserve up to one (1) of each session per day.

Fans can reserve up to four (4) for Thursday, five (5) for Friday, five (5) for Saturday and three (3) for Sunday.

Yupp! This will give everyone a fair shot of getting reservations by allowing fans into the queue in a first-come, first-served system.
