Professional Registration

Clark Kent, Peter Parker, and Tony Stark all had day jobs. You're in good company.

ECCC welcomes professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide a pro badge to approved artists, buyers, creators, editors, educators, librarians, licensors, producers, publishers, retailers and writers currently working.

Application Process

There are two types of pro badges for ECCC 2022:

  • Free Thursday Only Pro Badge, you only pay for shipping 

  • 4-Day Pro Badge for $25, plus taxes and shipping

Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the ECCC Pro Reg team and you will be notified within 14 days of your status.  

If you’re approved, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to complete your registration by choosing your ticket type at checkout. You must register and complete registration in order to receive your Pro badge within 21 days of being approved.


Registration for Pro badges will close on June 15, unless we reach maximum capacity at an earlier date. We strongly recommend you apply early as once all Pro badges are allocated, no more will be released and there will be no onsite Pro registration at ECCC.

Approved applications that are not finalized within 21 business days will be cancelled and a badge for ECCC 2021 will not be provided.


Please be sure to apply with your professional email to confirm that you are employed at the company and/or organization you are applying with. If you a freelancer or contractor and typically use your personal email, that is also acceptable.

Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. Every individual applying for a ECCC Pro badge may only apply once.

Pro badges are non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught selling their pro badge will be disqualified from attending future ReedPop events. This is non-negotiable.

Pro badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests. You must be 18 or older to qualify for a pro badge. ECCC reserves the right to approve or deny any application and there is a limit to the number of pro badges provided to each organization. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.

Pro Badge Access

ECCC pro badges provide complimentary access to the event for all four days of the event. Pro badges are extended as a courtesy of ECCC. As with all ReedPop events, ECCC is a fans first event which means your Pro badge allows access to panels as long as space is available.

Your Pro badge DOES NOT allow:

  • Early or special access into ECCC

  • Guaranteed seating at panels and events 

  • The ability to cut lines

  • Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket

  • Entry into pre-show lotteries for exhibitor exclusives or private autographing (sorry, but these are reserved for ECCC fans buying badges)
