Plan on attending the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2 to its friends) next April?
The deadline to register is 11:59 PM CST on March 21, 2014.
That’s tomorrow. Friday. You can apply here. ReedPOP will then review your application within 21 days, and let you know if you are professional enough.
Tickets still exist for the hoi polloi (formerly known as “the great unwashed”), and, yessireebub, you can buy them online as well!
While you wait for confirmation, why not fire up C2E2’s show planner?
Yes, it’s still 35 days away, but those crazy kids from Connecticut have already posted the floor plan! This year, it’s in the South Hall (where the American Library Association had their annual show last summer). Click here, and then click “Plan Your Show”, which will open a new window with nice active map which highlights booths with a simple arrow-over.
Here’s a screen shot:
Wait just a darn tooting minute!
This is the West Building! They left the plan up from April 2013!
Razzafrackin… Okay, all I can say is “visit www.C2E2Mobile.com on your mobile device” for the mobile app. We’ll let you know when the new map is working.
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
