In addition, BlizzCon is expanding to include more active hall space at the convention centre as well as the new “BlizzCon Pregame Festivities”—a fun and casual get-together running outside of the convention centre on the day before the show. For those planning on attending, this will prove to be a great opportunity to meet and make friends in the Blizzard community.
The President of Blizzard Entertainment, J. Allen Brack, spoke on the upcoming event.
“BlizzCon has served as a home away from home for the Blizzard community, a place where online friends can meet up in real life and new friendships are formed. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the show this year, reconnecting, celebrating, and sharing some of our latest developments.”
