Comic-Con International, the nonprofit that puts on the San Diego Comic-Con, started mailing out badges last year, as they instituted RFID technology and other measures to prevent counterfeiting and black markets sales.
This year, I even got my badge mailed to me! In a cute little box. So of course I made an unboxing video.
A lot of my press peers were posting similar unboxing images yesterday and today…but some people will need t pick up their badges on site the old fashioned way.
And you’ll still need a lanyard!
Now, I just need to remember to BRING MY BADGE WITH ME. Adding it to my to do list!
