The sponsorship application window for this event begins on June 23rd , and will close on Wednesday July 14th, 2010.

If you would like to apply for sponsorship, you must email Please put “BlizzCon Sponsorship” in the subject line. Here is some useful information:
• Volunteers who are awarded full or partial sponsorship will be provided a shared hotel room from October 21st and leaving on October 24th, 2010. You may apply to be provided a flight. Those who do not require sponsorship for their travel are more likely to be accepted.
• You will be provided lunch _or_ a small stipend. No other costs will be covered.
• Dress code includes nice clean blue jeans. These cannot be acid wash, torn, have holes, tattered at the bottom. A Cryptozoic Staff shirt will be provided to you.

Important Notes:

• This is not like a vacation, this is like work. It can be very rewarding and valuable, but it is hard work. Again, the plan is to have two shifts each day, and volunteers will have about two hours per day before/after their shift during the exhibit hall hours to experience the event.
• If you are not chosen, don't take it personally. There are a very, very limited number of sponsorships available. Again, if you would like to increase your chances of being accepted, covering your own flight and hotel will go a long way.
