Due to popular demand, in order to attend and reserve your seat for the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay, you will be required to pick up a wristband on Saturday morning of the Show. Please note, all other C2E2 Main Stage Panels will be first-come first-serve and will not require a wristband. Wristbands will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis in the North Hall, to the right of Registration and across from the entrance to the Show Floor, beginning at 8:00 AM on Saturday, April 22. There will be clear signage directing you to the correct location.
This process applies to all Badge types, including those with Medical stickers.
That’s a quick snapshot so please read this page carefully for full instructions about getting into the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay.
Reserve Your Seat
HOORAY! It's finally the Saturday of C2E2 and you’re in McCormick Place. So, what's next? As you enter the building, you'll head directly to the North Hall towards C2E2 Registration. C2E2 Crew and Staff will direct you to the end of the line where you can go to receive a wristband for the Competition.
In order to accommodate as many Fans as possible, this year we will livestream the Competition to another Panel room. Seats in this room will also require a wristband in order to reserve your seat in the Overflow Streaming Room. Once all the Main Stage wristbands have been distributed, we will then begin to distribute wristbands to reserve seats in an Overflow Streaming Room.
You will receive one wristband per Badge and you must be present to receive a wristband. A friend or family member cannot pick up a wristband for you. When Fans head to the Main Stage or Overflow Streaming Room later in the day, the wristband must be visible in order to confirm your seat in the room.
Once all wristbands are distributed we will message via push notifications in the C2E2 App (make sure yours are turned on!) and on the C2E2 Twitter page.
What Happens Next?
Once you received your wristband, you can hop in line for the Show Floor and enjoy the rest of C2E2 until the Crown Championships of Cosplay!
Getting Back In Line Before The Panel Starts
When you arrive to the Main Stage or Overflow Streaming Room before the Competition begins, C2E2 Staff and Crew will be stationed outside the room to assist in making sure you're in the right spot and getting into the correct line. At 6:30 PM, the Main Stage and Overflow Streaming Room doors will open and you will be asked to show your wristband in order to gain entry. It’s as simple as that!
This process applies to all Badge types, including those with Medical stickers..
All other C2E2 Main Stage Panels will be first-come first-serve and will not require a wristband.
Have a great time at C2E2!
