Event Information

Event Restrictions

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.

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 reentry after exiting.

Attendee Age Restriction

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.

BlizzCon Code of Conduct

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, without refund of any portion of the ticket-purchase price, to refuse admission or remove from BlizzCon any person whose conduct is deemed to be disorderly, or unbecoming, or who uses vulgar or abusive language.

Item Restrictions and Prohibitions

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: Outside food and beverages; desktop computers; laptops; 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.

**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.
