Case Study

Comic-Con

Handled 800+ registrants a minute with scalable end-to-end registration solution

Saved staff time by eliminating disjointed processes and multiple software platforms

Community Brands solutions help streamline complex events.

Since 1970, San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) has held a comics and multi-genre popular arts event annually which has grown to attract well over 135,000 registered fans from all over the world.

The organization wanted a total registration solution that could be configured and scaled to meet the demands of their complex event. Community Brands was able to simplify their processes for the thousands of registrants, exhibitors, volunteers, and more.

Challenge

As with many complex events, SDCC faced the challenge of using multiple disparate systems resulting in having data stored across multiple systems which resulted in more manual work for staff.

Solution

Since Community Brand’s products communicate seamlessly together, SDCC was able to streamline their processes and effectively go from system to system. Community Brands gave them more control with the power to make edits themselves and accomplish more with less.

Results

With Configio, Expo Logic, and Core-Apps by Community Brands, the organization has saved staff countless hours of manual work allowing them to focus on creating more memorable experiences for attendees.
