Minecon is a convention for the video game Minecraft, hosted by Mojang. The first gathering in 2010 was known as MinecraftCon.
The Minecon 2011 convention was held in Las Vegas and celebrated the launch of the game with Minecraft-related discussion panels and gaming areas. The most recent convention, held in London, had 10,000 attendees and was recognized as the world’s biggest gaming convention for a single video game.
On 7 March 2016, Mojang announced in a blog post that Minecon 2016 would be held in Anaheim, California, at the Anaheim Convention Center on 24 and 25 September 2016. They have now announced that tickets are 160$ per person, and toddlers aged 3 and under are admitted free. The Minecraft team will be receiving another award, as they were selling 12,000 tickets this year, which sold out within seconds of going on sale.
