The Chicago and Comic Entertainment Expo has been one of the Midwest's most prominent, long-standing comic conventions. C2E2 2024 prepares to watch the expo hit a milestone as it celebrates its 15th return to Chicago. Over the years, C2E2 has adapted to keep up with the core beats in pop culture while bringing premiere fans experiences in the Windy City. They've given fans the opportunity to meet some of their favorite icons in pop culture, connect with other conventiongoers, and fully immerse themselves in a weekend dedicated to pure nerddom. C2E2 2024 is set to return mid-spring, but tickets for the convention are on sale now.
Any ticket purchased for C2E2 prior to Early Bird Pricing Deadlines will be retailed at a discounted rate. As the demographics of C2E2 have shifted, Reedpop has taken the needs and wants of convention-goers into account when designing their ticket packages. For those who are looking for single-day experiences, they can pick up Friday, Saturday, or Sunday Tickets. Friday Tickets. Friday Tickets currently are being sold for $40.00, while Saturday and Sunday tickets retail for $50.00 apiece. There's also the option to bundle all three days into the 3-Day Ticket for $99.00. All tickets include access to over vendors, the Artist's Alley, panels, screenings, the show floor, and more.
