If you’ve ever wanted to meet up with fellow fans who share your love of all the 8-bit, block building fun Minecraft has to offer, an upcoming gathering might be right up your alley.
A bulletin was posted to Mojang.com earlier this week, hyping the upcoming event as being the “…place to see all the cool Mojangstas you fancy, meet people who love Minecraft maybe even as much as you do, and attend panels and events full of YouTube creators and a ton of other talented folks!”
The event will take place in London, England over the summer and promises to deliver special guests, tournaments and much more. You can read more on the official site, or check below for a complete logistical breakdown of the upcoming con:
- WHEN: July 4-5, 2015
- WHERE: ExCeL London Exhibition and Conference Centre
- WHO: You, hopefully!
- Since you’re bound to have more questions, I’ll ask myself some in this handy Q&A:
- How do I get tickets?
Ticket sales will happen in February, exact date and time will be announced in the next two weeks. You’ll head to minecon.mojang.com to purchase them, but they will go fast! To accommodate different people’s schedules, they will be released in two batches on the same day, different times, 5,000 tickets in each batch. When you buy your ticket you’ll also get access to our discounted hotel pricing, so don’t go booking a hotel room just yet!
- How do I become a volunteer (aka MINECON Agent)?
So you want to be a part of the event? We will be taking volunteer submissions next week. You’ll fill out an online form and we will get back to you before tickets go on sale. Watch mojang.com for more details.
- I have a great idea for a panel, how can I make it happen?
Our community submitted panels have been some of the best panels we’ve had! Panel submissions will begin in early March. You’ll need to fill out an online form about the panel, who would be best on it, and submit a video of yourself describing the panel and why it should be at MINECON.
- I want to exhibit at MINECON. How do I get a booth?
Each year we have a nice selection of awesome exhibitors, and you could be one of them! You can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for exhibition booth requests.
