The dedicated Minecraft event - Minecon - will take place in July this year at London's ExCeL.
Some 10,000 tickets will be available to the event, which will run on July 4th and 5th and will feature panels, contests, tournaments, events and a special 'soon to be announced' show on the Saturday night.
Ticket sales will begin this month, with the exact date and time being announced within the next two weeks. They will be released in two batches on the same day, at different times, with 5,000 in each batch.
In addition, Mojang will be recruiting a number of Minecon Agents (or volunteers) to help out at the event. Volunteer submissions will begin next week.
Panel submissions will begin in early March, while those interested in having a booth at the event should email email@example.com for more details.
