That's a big building. How many people can it accommodate?

A lot. The Anaheim Convention Center is one of the biggest in the world I think.

25,000-27,000 based on past blizzcon and other events in the anaheim convention center

It can definitely hold more than that. Last year we said we had what 35k?

Also we're only like 18 days away. I feel like if BlizzCon was a class it would definitely be a rogue, cause it sure does feel like it sneaks up on you.

Fira Barcelona Gran Via, the 10th largest convention center in the world, has a floor area of 230,837sqm. Anaheim's floor space is 150,000sqm, making it the 7th largest in the USA.

Current record-holder in the world for most space is Hannover Messegelände with a whopping 463,165sqm. That's about 171 Manhattan city blocks.

<- conventions/event manager when not in Azeroth.

TIL.

Also Fira Barcelona Gran Via is a cool name for a convention center. In my head that means "The Flame of Barcelona". I'm gonna assume that's what it means.
