What information do I need to provide to apply for for a four day Trade Day badges?
Here's the info from last year, as far as I know it's the same:
Please note that this programming is only open to educators, student teachers, librarians, distributors, and hobby retailers.
*All Trade Day badges require that you submit proof of employment (examples include most recent transcripts, a business license, business cards, copy of pay stub, or a workplace ID card).Refunds for purchased badges will not be given if proper documentation is not submitted.
You can just buy the badge at registration like normal, then expect an email asking for confirmation. I just email a scan of my school staff ID and that suffices.
Ryic is correct. I was in your situation last year (attending GenCon with a Trade Day badge for the first time and looking for information). You buy the badge normally in registration, then you will be contacted regarding providing ID to confirm your qualifications. I was able to scan my work ID and send it in, and that was considered sufficient.
Cool. Thanks everyone. I figured I had to pre-aprove the info. Guess not.
How about something for Veterans? Trade Day badge for those guys!
I work at an Early Years Center as an Parent Support Worker in Ontario and my background is Child and Youth Worker. Would this qualify me for a Trade Pass?
I actually decided to NOT do trade day badge. I wont be able to maximize its usfullness of getting in the exhibit hall an hour early on Thursday. Regular attendee badge for me.
The extra hour in the exhibit hall is nice, but it's not the point. The point is the day of special programming on Wednesday.
