Attention Blizzard fans: BlizzCon is apparently heading to Las Vegas in 2010. Wow.com has reported:
According to the Las Vegas Convention Center website, Blizzard will be holding BlizzCon 2010 in Las Vegas July 30th and 31st. Upon inquiry, the Convention Center was able to verify the dates and that Blizzard is running the event. However, Blizzard has yet to announce this themselves. We have contacted Blizzard, and we’ll post anything they have to say on the matter.
I’m a huge fan of this move. Las Vegas is a brilliant place to hold a convention. The convention center is big, there are plenty of hotels at a variety of price ranges, the restaurants are fantastic, and it’s easy to get around. Plus, it will totally freak out the “normal” Vegas vacationer. I remember covering an EverQuest event at The Bellagio. The normals were totally shocked by the elves, warriors, and mages walking around the place. It was awesome.
