There is also info on the Conan Tapings now, too! You can see it over here: but it states:

At 8am, a member of our staff will distribute numbered wristbands to anyone in the main ticket line that does not have a reservation. You will be given a location and time to return by to see if you’ll be getting in to the show.

I don’t have a lot of information on the next one, but it’s for a good cause:
“Hey folks! Here is some info about a fundraiser on Preview Night, Wednesday July 20th. I have been running this event with my wifeAdrienne Eltaeb for three years now. All the money raised goes to the Hero Initiative.This event is held at Basic (410 10th Ave) which is about 3 blocks from the San Diego Convention Center. Once there you can enjoy pizza, drinks and music. The artists listed on the flyer will be there taking commissions to raise money. We will have rare premium items from Darkhorse, Funko and Blizzard you can enter to win that will also help raise money for the charity.”


I don’t have an info besides the flyer, but hey, a flyer! And booze!
