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 :)
