The countdown to 2015 San Diego Comic-Con has begun!
We are about a month away from the biggest comic and pop culture event of the year. The Comic-Con website will be getting updated much more frequently from here on out.
Recent updates include:
• Exhibit Hall Map
Now you can take a look at at where all the booths will be positioned in the exhibit hall. This only shows the main exhibit hall, at the moment, and not the mezzanine level where the Fan Tables are located.
• Exhibitors, Artists’ Alley, Small Press and the Fan Tables List
Search the full list of exhibitors, artists, publications, companies and organizations that will be at SDCC and their booth/table number.
• Shuttle Service Schedule and Map
Free shuttle service is provided to-and-from the convention center, up to 60 different locations, including various hotels in the area. There are 8 different routes that cover the areas in-and-around the Gaslamp Quarter/Civic Center/Federal Square area, nearby Harbor Island/Airport area and Mission Valley/Hotel Circle area. These shuttles run nearly all day and night, up to midnight.
• Toucan Tip of the Day Series
Comic-Con has just launched their Toucan Tip of the Day series on the Toucan Blog.
• The Art of Comic-Con Exhibition
There is also a sneak peek into the first gallery exhibition, The Art of Comic-Con, opening on Saturday, June 20 at the San Diego Central Library. The exhibition runs through August 30th. Admission is free and open to the public.
Look for more information and schedules posted up, like the Programming Schedule, Exclusives List and much more. Programming should be up on the website, about 2 weeks before the convention begins. Don’t look for events that are happening off-site of the convention center listed on the Comic-Con website. Those events are not organized by Comic-Con and are being held in conjunction with the convention.
I have been attending SDCC for over 10 years. Over those years I have learned a lot in preparing and attending this event. I may do a post on prepping, planning and what to expect, but not sure yet.
Passes to SDCC are a very sought after item. They sell out in less than a hour and have been sold out for months now. So if you were not luck enough to purchase passes when they went on sale, then sadly you are out of luck. They do not sell any passes on-site during the convention and are non-transferrable.
