MINECON 2016 will take place on September 24-25 at Anaheim Convention Center in sunny Southern California, US. It’s going to be the biggest MINECON yet, with 12,000 attendees!

Though we'd like to meet every minecrafter face-to-face, we can only accommodate a small chunk of our global community. All the tickets have now sold out, but try not to be sad if you can't attend MINECON 2016. You can still join in the fun by watching our weekend-long livestream. Get your crafter buddies over and have a private MINECON party! Make creeper cakes! Dress up as your favourite mobs! Play Minecraft together during the boring bits (there won’t be any boring bits).

Some quick info about age restrictions: kids of 3 or younger get in for free. Young folk of 14 or under need a parent or guardian with them who is at least 18 (and they all need tickets). If you're 15 or over you can attend by yourself!

Minecon starts in

What is MINECON?

MINECON is a weekend dedicated to all things Minecraft. You’ll get to watch panels discussing your favourite game (Minecraft, we hope), hang out with thousands of like-minded community members, shake hands with Mojang team members and rub shoulders with some of the biggest YouTubers on the planet. There's something for every type of crafter.

Where is this thing happening?

Anaheim Convention Center is located in Anaheim, California, in the USA! For information about the venue, accessibility, parking, maps, and the latest city initiatives (whatever that means) visit their handy website. The closest airports are LAX and John Wayne airport. Mojang does not endorse nether portals as a safe means of travel.

Discounted hotel rooms

We've worked out a way to offer discounts on hotel rooms for all MINECON attendees. There are a number of hotels to choose from and they’re all located close to the convention centre. Visit this link to view the options. Booking will open to registered attendees on May 6th. Though we’ve taken precautions, we’re not responsible for Endermen hotel invasions.

I want to be an exhibitor

We're looking for super-cool exhibitors who are inspired by Minecraft to make amazing stuff for our community. Maybe you run a YouTube network loved by our players or sell awesome Minecraft merchandise, publish books about the game or promote education using it. Does this sound like you or your company? Then fill out this form to apply!
