Ticket Sell Out Policy

Nickel City Con has become one of the largest ticketed events at the Buffalo Convention Center, and we want as many people as possible to enjoy the Con, however, due to building capacity regulations we have to set limits in every category of tickets. We NEVER sell above the building capacity and we never will. We work closely with local officials, and the Convention Center to ensure a safe environment for all our guests.

It is impossible to predict when a ticket category will sell out. Tickets sales from year one to year two nearly tripled and several panels at last year’s show reached maximum capacity. We highly recommend you do not wait and purchase your tickets today.

Buying your tickets in advance does the following:

• Guarantees that you will be able to enter the show

• Guarantees that you will get your tickets at a discounted rate

• If you are lucky enough to purchase the limited quantity 3-Day Flash Pass, you will be able to get in ½ hour early each day before general admission.

If Tickets sell out: Our only option when this happens is to only allow those into the building that pre-purchased tickets. Others will have to wait outside until the building capacity drops or purchase tickets for a different day. We highly recommend you don’t wait and just purchase your tickets today.

If you did not buy in advance, you may still come to the show but with the understanding that you will have to wait outside until the the number of attendees inside the building drops below capacity before more tickets can be sold.

We strongly encourage you not to wait until the last minute to purchase your tickets. We appreciate our customers and thank you for understanding
