Blizzard Entertainment is returning with BlizzCon 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center November 1st and 2nd this year. Tickets to BlizzCon 2019 will go on sale in two waves, the first on may 4th, the second on May 8th.
This year, the con is changing things up a bit with more active hall space at the convention center and some BlizzCon Pregame Festivities. The pregaming for BlizzCon will be a casual get-together running outside of the convention center on the day before the show. So, nothing too serious.
This year's esports highlights for BlizzCon include the Hearthstone Global Finals, capping off the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters; the Overwatch World Cup; the epic global finals for the StarCraft II World Championship Series; the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship Finals; and the inaugural global finals of the World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International.
Attendees have three different pass options to choose from:
- The BlizzCon Portal Pass
- Offers an array of perks including access to Darkmoon Faire during a new "Night at the Faire" event on the eve of BlizzCon.
- Includes several conveninece-related extras like early entry, preferred parking, separate registration and security lines, and dedicated lounge.
- The BlizzCon Pass
- Same full general-admission access as in previous years
- Added access to the new BlizzCon Pregame Festivities
- The BlizzCon Benefit Dinner
- Get a chance to meet developers, artists, and other Blizzard employees the night before the show for a charity dinner
- Full general-admission access to the show
- All perks included in the Portal Pass including early entry, preferred parking, separate registration and security lines, and a dedicated loung.
All three ticket types will be available during both waves of the ticket sales, so there won't be a separate wave for the Benefit Dinner this year.
All three ticket types come with several BlizzCon in-game goodies plus one of two BlizzCon Commemorative Collectible statues. Attendees can choose between a mighty Orc Grunt or a Human Footman in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Warcraft.
Your statue selection will be made and locked in during the ticket purcahse process. So choose carefully.
