Badge Information

Badge Pickup

To pick up your BlizzCon® badge, bring these items:

  • The bar code you received via email (printed or on your mobile device)
  • A valid photo ID that matches the name in the bar code email
    Note: The photo ID, bar code email, and name assigned to your ticket must match.

You can pick up your badge at General Attendee Pickup, Hall E, Anaheim Convention Center

  • Thursday, November 1 from 9am to 9pm
  • Friday, November 2 from 8am to 10pm
  • Saturday, November 3 from 8am to 10pm

The on-site BlizzCon Store will be open a day early starting on Thursday (9am to 9pm). Head to Hall E and pick up some swag before the show begins!

Note: Once a bar code is scanned and the associated badge is printed, the bar code becomes invalid. We will not reprint lost badges.

Attendee Info

After you purchase tickets, you will have until July 13 at 8pm PST (round 3 buyers: August 31 at 8pm Pacific Time) to edit the following information for each attendee through your Universe account:

  • First and last name of attendee (to be printed on the badge)
  • Email address of attendee
  • Character name (optional)

If you don’t know who you are purchasing tickets for, enter your own full name and email address for all tickets. In this case, the ticket purchaser must bring all of the printed bar code emails, along with matching photo ID, to BlizzCon to pick up badges. While all of the badges will show the ticket purchaser’s name, photo ID will only be checked at the time of badge pickup.

Note: If you change the name of an attendee for a badge, only the emailed barcode and valid photo ID bearing the name of that attendee can be used to claim their badge. A confirmation email without a barcode will not be sufficient to claim a badge. You must have the barcode. Barcodes will be sent out at a later date.

Additional Information

Minors Attending BlizzCon Without Their Own Photo ID

Bring your bar code email directly to the Solutions Desk in Hall E, along with the original credit card used to purchase the ticket and the purchaser’s original photo ID (digital copies will be accepted; front and back of credit card required).

Adults Attending With a Minor

To avoid a trip to the Solutions Desk, enter your own name in place of the minor’s attendee information. This will allow you to pick up the badge with your own photo ID, and then you can give the badge to the minor accompanying you. Accompanying adults must also purchase a BlizzCon ticket to enter the event.

Name Changes After Cutoff Date

If a guest is no longer able to attend the show and you would like to bring a different guest, you and/or the replacement guest will need to bring all of the following items to the Name Change Desk in Hall E for assistance:

  • The original attendee’s bar code email
  • The credit card used to make the purchase (or a fully legible physical or digital copy of the front and back of the credit card)
  • The photo ID of the person whose name is on the barcode (or a fully legible physical or digital copy of the photo ID)


For accessibility information and services on-site, please visit the Accessibility desk in Hall E, located next to the Solutions and Name Change desks. For more information on accessibility online, visit the Event Rules and Details page.
