BlizzCon (or Blizzard Convention) is a celebration of the Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo franchises along with the communities that surround them. The event contains Q&A panels featuring Blizzard developers, social events for fans and developers to meet one another, and previews of new/upcoming Blizzard games/tournaments featuring StarCraft, Warcraft III, and World of Warcraft Arenas.


Convention Information

BlizzCon is hosted at the Anaheim Convention Center California, lasting 10am till 10pm for two days generally Friday to Saturday.

The first convention had a $100 ($150 for Blizzcon 2010) ticket cost. This ticket gets entry to the convention hall for the two days of the event and an exclusive "Goodie Bag" which contained things like in-game prizes for World of Warcraft players, Beta Trial keys for upcoming Blizzard games, World of Warcraft Trading Card Game Cards, and other exclusive Blizzard Swag. The tickets are often sold out within days of going on sale.

Blizzard generally saves announcements about upcoming games for the next Blizzcon. All of the World of Warcraft expansions have been announced at BlizzCon.
