The Big Wait: SDCC Badge Registration

It’s early Saturday morning and I’m “in” the Epic Online Registration room trying to help family register for badges.

The little blue circle is spinning, which means we are in a holding pattern until 9am.

It’s a stressful process knowing that there is a chance registration won’t happen.

To pass the time, SDCC posts humorous notes designed to take the edge off of the stress. 

On another note, when I think of how many people worldwide are in this virtual waiting room trying to buy tickets, and how many people will descend upon San Diego for this event, it makes me realize how important this event is for our local economy.

We have to expand the Convention Center. We have to keep SDCC so fans can come to San Diego to enjoy this great city.

  1. Sarabeth, I agree with you. Expansion of the Convention Center should be a priority for San Diego. It’s an economic factor in our city’s future and we sure as hell need it more than a new Charger stadium. Our climate makes us the American Riviera, but we still have to compete with big brother LA up the road and if our facilities aren’t big enough to handle large events, we’re going to lose out on a lot of desperately needed jobs that a larger Convention Center will support.
