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.!
2020 will make this our 8th year. This year will be a little different with COVID 19, but we wanted to do something to celebrate the Blizzard fan community in 2020. We are committed to bringing you a great virtual community celebration that honors our slogan, By Fans 4 Fans! Thanks to the generosity of this community, along with help from our volunteers, while thousands of people made memories that will last a lifetime at our physical events, we hope the same will be true of our virtual event in 2020.
