Denver Comic Con TOMORROW!
Well, our first Comic Con of our working season is tomorrow!! Denver Comic Con is FINALLY here!! With more than 100,000 people expected, it is sure to be a crazy, but amazing time!! There will be more than 200 celebrities, artists, authors, and more than 600 hours of different panels/programs. We will even be moderating 6 different panels!! With Denver Comic Con being tomorrow, here are some tips, information, etc. about the show, that you might need to know!
To promote a quicker and more streamlined entry process, Denver Comic Con has implemented Flash Seats, an ID-based digital ticketing system that allows guests to enter the event with an ID, the credit card used to purchase tickets or with the Flash Seats mobile app, which also allows guests to sell, buy, and transfer tickets. For more on Flash Seats, visit: https://www.flashseats.com/FAQsDetails.aspx?ss=0&a=1#g1
Even with the new, more efficient ticketing system, guests should plan for lines, particularly for some of the more popular events, sessions and guests. Entry lines will be longest when the Con opens at 10 a.m. each day, with the longest lines of the weekend expected on Saturday.
Early badge pick-up will be available Thursday, Jun. 14 at the Colorado Convention Center from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the entrance near 13th St. & Welton St.
Denver Comic Con’s top priority is the welfare and safety of guests. With that in mind, DCC staff works closely with the Denver Police Department and security contractors throughout the year on a variety of measures to enhance guest safety at the event, including training, bag checks and prop checks throughout the weekend.
Please note that the 2018 cosplay guidelines have been updated, and NO prop firearms will be permitted. Guests seeking the optimal fan experience are encouraged to carry in as little as possible with them. Minimizing outside items will expedite security checks and maximize efficiency at points of entry. For details about prop and cosplay guidelines, visit: https://denvercomiccon.com/show-info/policies/

“The con also features more 10,000 sq. ft. of floor space dedicated to the Kid’s Lab. A space for kids and teens to explore pop culture through projects and talks from industry luminaries.” We personally have had our kids want to stay in the kid’s lab for HOURS! There are different activities and panels catered just for them, and it’s loads of fun!!
