The Minecraft Fan Convention, "MineCon", will run on November 18-19, and will coincide with the final release of Minecraft, which has a November 11 release date.
In an interview with "For me, MineCon is about celebrating the full release of Minecraft. I'm really looking forward to getting up on stage and pushing the button to upload the final build.", Notch stated,
Notch won't stop with Minecraft's release, however. "We'll just go back home and keep working on Minecraft directly after MineCon, but it does represent a huge milestone where the game finally leaves beta, something we'd never been able to do without our fans, so it feels natural to celebrate it with them," Notch said.
In addition to the existing PC game, an Xperia Play version is in development, as is a Kinect-enabled Xbox Live Arcade version. The game will also eventually be coming to both iOS and Android.
Registration hasn't begun, since there no ticket price yet, nor even a site to purchase tickets. However, MineCon is a indeed a go, and since it will be in Vegas, there will be plenty of entertainment to enjoy before and after the convention, too.
