Representatives from World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment have announced the return of its BlizzCon convention, set to take place August 3 and 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center, and offering developer panels, tournaments, contests and more.

Open to all gamers from ages 4 and up, BlizzCon will offer a variety of activities in addition to serving as a general gathering place for Blizzard fans and communities.

Blizzard note that the convention this year will offer discussion panels with Blizzard developers, artist and developer signings, competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents and World of Warcraft Trading Card Game tournaments and demos.

The convention also will be hosting costume, machinima, and character sound-alike contests, offering commemorative merchandise and other products based on the Blizzard franchises, setting up a silent auction and conducting live orchestral performances of music from Blizzard games.

Said Blizzard president Mike Morhaime, "We were gratified by the response to our first BlizzCon in 2005 and have been looking for an opportunity to hold a follow-up event ever since. With BlizzCon 2007, we plan to deliver another entertaining and informative experience for the attendees, and we look forward to meeting all of them again this year."

Tickets for the BlizzCon will be put up for sale "in the next few months" at a price of $100 USD per person. More information on the event can be found on the official BlizzCon website.
