Con Before the Storm featuring World of Podcasts is a party organized by fans, for fans. Special guest ‘personalities’ come to this party so they can meet fans (like you!) in person. Personalities include podcasters, streamers, pro teams, artists, news sites and fan sites across all Blizzard games. We also host a Fan Art gallery, a photobooth, meet & greet autograph rooms, live panels, and more!
Con Before the Storm was co-founded by Dave "Ceraphus" and Heather "Xia" soon after Blizzcon 2014 & World of Podcasts 2014. It is truly the evolution of the World of Podcasts event which started in 2013 by Ben, Ginger, Heather and Dave.!
2019’s party will make this our 7th year! This year is truly special as we've teamed up with another Thursday night Blizzcon event, Wowhead, to come together to throw the largest By Fans 4 Fans pre-Blizzcon gathering yet! It’s all thanks to our backers and sponsors – each and every donation really does help make this party happen. Thanks to the generosity of this community, along with help from our volunteers, thousands of people made memories that will last a lifetime. Our goal is to make sure everyone feels welcome and we jumpstart your amazing Blizzcon weekend with one of a kind experiences!
