Pick Up Your Badges Early: Shorter Lines, Less Hassle
Our early badge pickup returns for 2018! Picking up your badges early allows you to avoid the longer lines and generally larger crowds that typically occur on the days when the convention is open.
Take our advice: It will make your life much easier when you arrive at the convention center (especially if you are attending with a group or with kids) if you pick up your badges early.
This year’s early pickup is on:
THURSDAY, JUNE 14
10 A.M. TO 6 P.M.
COLORADO CONVENTION CENTER

Need more details? The FAQ below will answer many of the questions we’re receiving the most.
But, if there is still something you need answered, please don’t hesitate to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re here to help!
Can Anyone Who’s Purchased a Ticket Pickup Their Badge(s) Early?
Yes. Anyone who has purchased a ticket, and has those tickets showing in their Flash Seats app/account, can participate in early badge pickup.
What If I Lose My Badge Before (or After) I Arrive and Enter the Con?
If you lose your badge(s) before the con begins, contact email@example.com immediately. If you lose your badge(s) during the con, visit one of the convention center entry points and speak to a ticketing representative.
What Do I Do, Exactly, If I Want to Pick Up My Badges Early?
Visit Lobby B of the Colorado Convention Center on Thursday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’re not sure where that is, we’ve created a map for you HERE. Walk up to one of the ticketing representatives, open the Flash Seats app on your mobile device, show them the QR code for your tickets, and they will hand you your badges.
NOTE: If you don’t have your phone with you, no worries. Present the credit card you used to purchase the ticket and the DCC representative will be able to look up your record and provide you with your badge(s). With Flash Seats, you may also register your driver’s license online at flashseats.com and use for entry into DCC.
Can I Pick Up All of the Badges for My Group at One Time?
Yes. BUT, the tickets must be showing in your Flash Seats account. You can pick up all badges showing in your Flash Seats account, all at once, and the other badge holders do not need to be with you.
I Purchased the Tickets, Can I Send Someone Else to Pick Up My Badges for Me?
Under normal circumstances, no. The ticketing representatives will only give badges to the person who has the tickets showing in their Flash Seats app (or who, by presenting a photo ID or credit card, proves they are the ticket purchaser).
Flash Seats does have an advanced feature that allows you to transfer tickets to another person’s Flash Seats account, which would then allow them to pick up the badges for you. For further information on that feature, visit the Flash Seats FAQ page on their website HERE.
What Are My Options If I Don’t Pick Up My Badge Early?
If you do not pick up your badges early you will need to go through the standard badge exchange process outlined in the blog post and FAQ HERE.
