Get Tickets

If you’re hoping to join the fun in person at the Anaheim Convention Center, you might want to take a moments to read about this year’s show and ticket sales process:


You’ll have until July 13 to edit attendee information on your tickets, so it’s OK to enter your own name and email address for every ticket for now—just remember to go back and update this info before the deadline!

If you miss out on tickets during this first sale, a second batch will go on sale Saturday, May 12 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. In addition, tickets to a special pre-BlizzCon dinner to benefit Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) will go on sale Wednesday, May 16 at 7:00 p.m. PDT. And as always, in-depth coverage of BlizzCon will be available online through the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket—further details will be announced at a later date.

    I just need an election to not happen around the same time and then one day I'll be able to visit! It would be cool to meet some of the people I play with.

    Maybe something linked to your blizzard account? Although it is easy to get one, it is an extra step to deter the bulk buyers.

    Someone needs to buy every single ticket and not go or re-sell them.

    first reports have it that all seven active diablo 3 players got a ticket for the announcement of the next expansion / diablo 4 / anything which adds just a bit of fresh content to the game.

    we'll see how it plays out for them. send love and prayers.

    While there are clearly some scalpers bogging down the market and eating up a % of the tickets....it is also that the tickets are just THAT popular...and if you really want to go you have to plan ahead and get a group of people in on the effort.

    I am now on year 6 of going in a row and have gotten all the tickets my group has needed on the first day each year. Year one we took 5 people, year 2 was 10, year 3 a whopping 22, year 4 20, year 5 we got 19, and this year we got 16.

    Its not as easy as just clicking and buying....this year we had 9 people trying and 4 got in, 5 did not. Most years we have had 9-12 people actively trying...and you have to be ready, planning ahead with everyone ready to go right at the flip of the clock -- reading the instructions ahead of time regarding having to select quantity before or after clicking buy, do you refresh the page or not, ext....but if you really want to go, you go through the effort of getting a team together to do it and you can get it done.

    Also a word of advice, stick around and try again at the 5, 10, and 15 minute mark after the tickets "sell out", as credit cards fail and people cancel orders. Wait until the vendor turns off the system to stop. One year we got 3 more tickets about 15 min after they sold out, presumably because someone cancelled out or a payment failed.

    Not excusing the scalpers, but just saying if you REALLY want to go, get some help together ahead of time and be ready and you can get your ticket.

    Another pro tip. One year we had someone decide the day of the con that they wanted to go....so they came with and waited out front that morning and someone sold their pass at face value minus the loot box because someone backed out and could not make it. Every year there are groups with a person that could not make it, missed a flight, ext selling the pass at cost. You just make them go to the name change line before you buy it and get them to change the badge to your name. Does not help if you live far away of course, but just fyi for those who are close to the con. Also the week or so before the con, the scalper pricing on ebay does normally drop, as again those selling tickets are a combo of scalpers and those trying to ditch an extra ticket that someone backed out of last minute, so you can ebay for around cost around then too.
