EVENT RULES AND DETAILS[edit | edit source]

BlizzCon® tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable, and Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to deny admission to anyone who violates the terms of the BlizzCon Ticket Agreement.

Show Hours

  • Friday, November 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Due to fire regulations, access to certain panel discussions, presentations, and performances that occur during BlizzCon will be limited to the maximum capacity of the particular hall and will be on a first-come first-served basis. If an area has reached its capacity, you may not be granted re-entry after exiting.

ATTENDEE AGE RESTRICTION[edit | edit source]

Some content at BlizzCon® may not be suitable for children. Anyone 12 years of age or under must be accompanied by an adult. Absolutely no children 5 years of age or under will be permitted to enter. No strollers will be allowed in the Anaheim Convention Center.

ACCESSIBILITY[edit | edit source]

Blizzard is devoted to providing the best possible experience for all our BlizzCon attendees. For information or questions on accommodations for people with disabilities, including interpreter services, please email [1], and a representative will respond within 72 hours. Please note that while we will do our best to accommodate requests, some limitations may apply—for example, we will not be able to guarantee seating to an area or event when we’ve reached capacity.

BLIZZCON CODE OF CONDUCT[edit | edit source]

Whether you're Horde, Alliance, Protoss, Zerg, Wizard, or Demon Hunter, we want everyone at BlizzCon to feel like they're part of one big Blizzard family—and to help make that happen, we ask that everyone at the show be respectful and courteous to their fellow attendees.

If you witness or experience any activity that puts someone's safety or enjoyment of the show at risk, inform a security guard or Blizzard employee (BlizzCon® staff will be wearing "BlizzCon Crew" shirts at this year's show) and let them know. We have escalation procedures in place to handle these kinds of situations, and we'll be able to take the appropriate action from there.

In order to ensure the event provides a safe, enjoyable, and welcoming environment for everyone, Blizzard reserves the right to remove from BlizzCon® any person whose conduct is deemed to be disorderly, or unbecoming, or who uses vulgar or abusive language.


Bags up to 20" x 10" in size may be brought into the convention. Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to search any bags being brought into BlizzCon® and to refuse entry if they are found to contain prohibited items below:

PROHIBITED ITEMS[edit | edit source]

Prohibited items include (but are not limited to) outside food and beverages; desktop computers; laptops; selfie sticks; electronic storage devices; edged weapons (such as knives, daggers, or swords for costumes), actual clubs, maces, or other crushing weapons; projectile weapons, even if unloaded or nonfunctional (including air guns, longbows, crossbows, etc.), alcohol, fireworks, glass bottles, cans, large containers; drones or flying devices; hoverboards; and skateboards.

**Any attendee found to have violated the prohibited items list may be removed from BlizzCon®.**

Acceptable costume weapon props are limited to air-filled or soft plastic melee weapons (swords, daggers, maces, clubs, etc.) and wooden staves that are not shod with metal.

Tablets (such as iPads) and video cameras are permitted for use in the BlizzCon® exhibit halls. However, you may not record gameplay from any of the screens (with the exception of tournament gameplay), and recording the BlizzCon® closing ceremony on Saturday evening is strictly prohibited.

Personal equipment may not be connected to any computer for any reason at any time.
