Wondering where Minecon will be held this year? Anxious to get your travel plans in order, and prepare for another awesome convention? You might not need to wait long! Minecon 2013 has been confirmed for the US east coast, although the exact location is not yet known. Jens "Jeb" Bergensten had the following to offer:

Jeb said:

The contract with the location has been signed, so it's mainly a question of people getting back from business trips. ETA for announcement should be end of May. Tickets will be available later (probably after summer, but I could be wrong).

While the convention's exact location has not yet been revealed, the two most likely east coast locations would seem to be New York, or Florida. Minecon 2012 was held in Disneyland Paris, and with Florida being the home of Disney World, in Orlando, it is a strong contender for Minecon 2013. Minecon '11 and '12 had approximately 4,500 attendees.

Are you planning on attending Minecon 2013? Tell us about it!

Hope it's in Florida. That would make the most sense especially if it is around the Orlando area. New York isn't as "kid-friendly" and can get quite pricey. Glad that it has been confirmed for the East Coast, though! Seems like Minecon will be extremely popular this year with all of the attention last year's event received.

Hope it happens in NY! Would be cheaper for me to go there instead of florida, and it would be awesome! (Why should Disney/Orlando get all the kid-centered attention?)

New York or Boston would be a good canidate for Minecon, but I don't know about Boston after the bombings...but they upped the security due to the bombings. But please just be somewhere in New England! :D

England always gets left out v.v I was hoping I could have got the tickets for my birthday (which was yesterday) But now that it's been announced to be in the US my birthday had been wrecked :'(

So, it could be in either Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Richmond, Orlando, or Miami. All of them are big East Coast cities.
