One of my assistants changed. How do I change the Maker Pass to the new name?

All Makers and Maker assistants must have their Maker Entry Pass or ticket before arriving onsite.  The name on the ticket does not have to match the name of your assistant. If you’ve already sent the e-ticket to your previous helper, ask him/her to forward it to your new assistant. It can only be used once. You do not need to notify us of the change. Check in with SF Bazaar staff on site to redeem your Eventbrite tickets for your wristbands.

Do I have to print my pass or can I bring my e-ticket on my phone or tablet?
Yes, you can bring your pass on your phone or tablet, but it may be easier and foolproof if you print it out. If you decide to keep them on your phone, please download the Eventbrite attendee app
