IRVINE, Calif. – May 12, 2008 – – Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced plans for its third BlizzCon™ gaming convention, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on October 10 and 11. BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment®'s Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® franchises.

"We're looking forward to seeing even more of our players at this year's BlizzCon and delivering another entertaining and informative event for them."

BlizzCon will offer a wide variety of activities to help all attendees get the most out of the two-day event. In addition to serving as a gathering place for the different Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, attendees will be able to enjoy:

* Hands-on play time with upcoming Blizzard Entertainment releases
* Discussion panels with Blizzard Entertainment developers
* Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
* Areas and activities devoted to licensed products such as the World of Warcraft® Trading Card Game
* Costume, machinima, and character sound-alike contests with great prizes
* Commemorative merchandise based on the Blizzard Entertainment franchises
* A silent auction
* More exciting activities to be announced

Tickets for BlizzCon will go on sale in the next few weeks at a price of $100 USD per person. As the event draws closer, further details will be announced on the official BlizzCon website: www.blizzcon.com.

Blizzcon is geared towards Blizzard Games. World of Warcraft, Starcraft, etc... Nothing to do with anime.

Also, I'd recommend posting a link to the official event website.

Good idea, I'll add that too.
Sorry this is my first time starting a thread.

I don't know if this will help anyone, but I found hotel rooms in that area (at most 1 mile away from the convention center) that are about $60-$100 per night after taxes. If you can find 4 people to share a room, it's actually not that bad.

This site is a good search engine:

(You can change the point of reference to specifically the Anaheim Convention Center and distance in the upper left hand corner)
