Know Before You Go


We think we covered ALL your questions on our awesome FAQ page. If you can’t find what you need below—please check there next.

Will Call

Will Call opens the day of the first session and is located in the lower lobby of the Colorado Convention Center. Find it by entering through the doors to the right of the Blue Bear, head down the steps and you will see Will Call in the lower lobby hallway to your right. Tickets held at Will Call must be picked up by the person whose name is on the order–so you must know the full name of any person for whom you are leaving tickets. Ticket holder must present a photo ID.

Note: There are two Will Call booths side by side in this location: Ticketmaster Will Call and GABF Volunteer Will Call. Please know in advance where tickets have been left for you!


There is an ATM located next to the Will Call booth in the lower lobby.

Lockers & Bags

There are NO lockers at the Colorado Convention Center, nor is there a coat check. Prohibited items include backpacks, suitcases, large beach bags, etc. so please plan accordingly. See additional FAQs.

If you need special assistance or wheelchair access from the ticket line or Will Call, proceed to the elevator in the lower lobby. Please ask our volunteers to direct you.
