Let's suggest cities that will never, ever happen. I'll start:- MontrealNow you try it, WoW.com

Indianapolis! We have a huge con center. Room for 100,000 and more attendees (still adding more halls as we speak). Indy is pretty much central to the US. Something like 10,000 hotel rooms within 5 miles from the con center. The con center connects to a mall and 5 or 6 hotels. And It could make my dream of a 2 week trip of Gencon and then blizzcon a reality :)

@Sorano Wamsutter, Wyoming?

@RalodIndianapolis would probably implode from hosting Blizzcon and GenCon so close to each other.

Waiting in Boston!

Las Vegas Baby! Cause, you know, what happens in Vegas....Still just a 3 to 4 hour drive from Orange County so all the Blizz staffers can head on out without too much trouble. Of course it will have to be a 21 and over con.

Somewhere in europe would be perfect

Stockholm has lots of great convention centers, in and around the city. Why not locate in Sweden next year? (yeah I know, worth a shot right?)

Blizzard has a Europe HQ in Paris (or near it) so whats wrong with them holding one over in France. Blizzcon and Blizzcon Europe. Yes please.

honestly, I would just be happy if they would move it to Los Angeles, simply so they can have more people attend.

Come... come to Michigan, BlizzCon...*makes arcane gestures which fail because she plays a hunter*

Birmingham, in the NEC! That would be epic for us UK folks. Nom.

Come to Honolulu! Crossroads of the Pacific and all that. We get plenty of conventions here that draw lots of people from the mainland U.S. and Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China. Well, I guess Japan doesn't really matter to WoW, but it's close enough for the rest. Halfway to Asia and still in the U.S.

I'd love it if it was in Las Vegas.

South Australia, AustraliaVisit our island damn it!
8-31-2009 @ 6:33PM
Well, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so they wouldn't be able to tell the rest of us the Announcements, would they?

One of the Blizzard execs was asked about moving Blizzcon to another city on the DirecTV feed, and the answer was just about identical to Alex Ziebart's post. He said that Blizzard had over 500 employees staffing Blizzcon, not just over a period of 2 days, but all the prep time too. He didn't ENTIRELY rule out another city, but more or less said that the logistics of going outside the area were pretty daunting. They will be looking for a larger venue, but I got the impression it would be one within driving distance of Blizzard HQ.Something folks might also consider is how disruptive to their the employees personal lives it might be having to travel to wherever. I am sure a lot of the "invisible" people could be replaced with local hires (at what cost to company morale?) but where it could hurt us, the fans, could be fewer meaningful panelists.Hopefully the DirecTV/Streaming coverage will be expanded, cheaper, and include the Blizzard Store next year :)

Sydney would be nice (:Or even Singapore - very accessible to everyone in the Oceanic region and internationally.
