New York Comic Con is rapidly developing into a delirious East Coast rough house fan slam of a pop culture scrum — so let’s see how they handle ticket sales. For everyone serious about going to the gym AND getting a head start on their 2012, 4-day NYCC tickets go on sale TODAY at noon EST. A four-day pass is $85 — a price which holds until 10/8, when it goes up to $100.
The PR release makes note of a couple of things — there will be more programming on Thursday. Everyone noted that the “pro” panels were pretty thin that day so maybe those will be increased. The show floor is also opening earlier on Thursday — 3 pm to 9 pm.
Three-Day tickets will go on sale later this spring and single day tickets will go on sale in the summer.
Just in time to welcome the New Year, New York Comic Con (NYCC) organizers have today announced that 4-Day tickets for the 2012 pop culture extravaganza in New York City will go on sale tomorrow, January 3, 2012 at 12 noon EST. The 4-Day ticket provides an exclusive pass to New York Comic Con on Thursday (October 11) as the convention will be open on that day to only Pros, Press, VIPs and fans who purchase a 4-Day ticket! Officials also note that more panels and screenings will be added to the schedule on Thursday and the convention will have extended hours on Thursday with the show floor open from 3pm – 9pm.
The dates for this year’s New York Comic Con are Thursday, October 11 – Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. NYCC organizers note that right now they are only selling the exclusive 4-Day tickets. Last year the 4-Day tickets sold out so fans are encouraged to mark their calendar and buy their tickets early! Meanwhile, 3-Day tickets will go on sale later this Spring and Single Day tickets will go on sale in the Summer. All tickets for the convention may be purchased at www.newyorkcomiccon.com.
Tickets for New York Comic Con in 2011 were completely sold out and officials note that exhibit space for last year’s show was also sold out. Customers interested in signing up for NYCC in 2012 should contact Larry Settembrini at email@example.com.
