Press Pass Requests & Information

New Jersey Comic Expo welcomes all members of the world press to this year’s event. We are happy to provide approved reporters with a complimentary press badge (please no guests).

Please note:

  • We allow two reporters per outlet. Each reporter should fill out their own application.
  • Your press badge will grant you access to the show floor during the official show hours
  • Your press badge does not allow you to skip lines.

Our priority is to provide a safe and inviting atmosphere for attendees, press, vendors and guests alike, so please conduct yourself professionally at all times and announce yourself as a press representative (naming your outlet) when approaching vendors, guests and attendees. Be courteous and ask permission before shooting pictures of vendors, attendees (including cosplayers), and guests (who may be charging for pictures). We want everyone to be happy, so your cooperation is a big part of that.
