Wondering what Con Before the Storm is all about? It's a pre-Blizzcon event organized by fans, for fans. 2019 will make this our 7th year hosting this event and it's all thanks to the support of the amazing community! Last year we had 180 backers who helped fund a party that hosted over an estimated 8,000 people throughout the night! Due to the generosity of this community, and the help from our volunteers, thousands of people have made memories year after year at Con Before the Storm.
This year we are working hand in hand with another community party by a brand you all know well...Wowhead! Thats right this year, Con Before the Storm is powered by Wowhead!
The landscape has certainly changed, and we and Wowhead talked and said, why are we doing different parties, let our powers combine to create the largest, most incredible Blizzard community event yet! So that brings us to this year. With the combining of parties, means each side needs to contribute, since we are humbly just a community event, we need to raise funds to put the fun into the space!
We are taking the best parts of both events and merging them. Make no mistake this is your party, by you and for you! Like our previous years, we're planning to host a fan art gallery, a photobooth, meet & greet autograph rooms, discussion panels (that may include community personalities, podcasters, and more), plus perhaps some additional surprises! Special guest 'personalities' come to this party so they can meet fans (like you!) in person. Podcasters, streamers, pro esports teams, artists, news sites and fan sites across all Blizzard games will be there!
