TicketLeap will power online registration for the 2011 Comic-Con International in San Diego. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 5, 2011, at 9 a.m. PST.
“We are thrilled to partner with Comic-Con to ticket the largest comic book and pop culture convention in the world,” says Chris Stanchak, CEO of TicketLeap. “TicketLeap runs on Amazon Web Services to ensure that we can support such a high demand ticketed event.”
The 42nd annual four-day convention will take place from July 21 – 24, 2011, at the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con has gained international recognition over the years, which boasts in excess of 126,000 attendees each year. Comic-Con selected TicketLeap in December 2010 to run a successful ticket test which sold 1,000 tickets online.
“We learned a great deal from our informational test run in December,” commented David Glanzer, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Comic-Con. “For that reason Comic-Con will again partner with TicketLeap to fulfill the challenging task of the online registration process.”
A ticketing link will go live on the registration page of http://www.comic-con.org on Saturday, February 5, 2011, at 9 a.m. PST. Registration is only being processed online and tickets will not be available at the door. Ticket buyers should not create a TicketLeap account prior to purchasing tickets, for TicketLeap accounts are for event organizers only.
