C2E2 welcomes professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide a Professional 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 Professional 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 Professional 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
