Industry Application

Keystone Comic Con welcomes professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide an Industry badge to approved artists, buyers, creators, editors, educators, librarians, licensors, producers, publishers, tastemakers, retailers and writers currently working or retired from comics and popular arts. Due to the volume of applications, we cannot provide Industry badges to support staff, such as administrative staff, facilities, IT, operations and others who are not directly involved in the creative process.

Your Industry badge will not get you:

  • Early access into the building, special access or guaranteed seating
  • The ability to cut lines
  • Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket
  • Access to exhibitor exclusive lotteries

Application Process

All industry applications are subject to approval.

If Submission Is Received Between These Three Dates: You Will Hear Back By This Date:
Before June 15 June 29
June 16 – July 20 August 3
July 21 – August 3 August 17

The deadline to apply is 11:59 PM on August 3, 2018. However, we highly recommend that you apply early as we expect to reach maximum capacity for Industry badges prior to Keystone Comic Con. Once all Industry badges are allocated there will be no more released, even if the deadline has not passed. There will be no industry registration onsite during Keystone Comic Con. Should you wish to attend as a professional industry badge holder, you MUST apply online and complete the full application.

Note: If your application is approved, you will be prompted by email to complete your registration by selecting either the free Friday badge or the 3-day badge (pricing below). You must complete your registration by Friday, August 31, 2018. Should you not receive the status of your application by August 17, contact the Keystone Comic Con Industry Email Inbox. Applications that are not finalized by Friday, August 31, 2018 will be cancelled and a badge for Keystone Comic Con 2018 will not be provided.

Your approval for an Industry badge at other ReedPOP shows does not guarantee you an Industry badge for Keystone Comic Con 2018. Applying as an industry professional does not guarantee that you will be approved. You must complete the entire Industry badge application.

All application decisions are final and cannot be appealed. Keystone Comic Con reserves the right to approve or deny all applications. You will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved.

Each Industry badge is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your Keystone Comic Con Industry badge, and any individuals conducting such behavior will have this badge cancelled and be disqualified from Industry badges at future ReedPOP events.
