Minecon 2013 will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida on November 2 and 3.

7500 tickets will be sold in three batches of 2500, after tickets to the show last year sold out in less than two hours.

The first batch of tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 16:00 PT/19:00 ET. The second batch will follow on Friday at 07:00 PT/10:00 ET, followed by the final batch on Saturday at 12:00 PT/15:00 ET.

In the UK, that's midnight on Thursday, 15:00 on Friday, and 20:00 on Saturday.

Tickets are $150 each, with a maximum of six per order, though those under 3 years old are allowed to attend for free. They can be purchased from the Minecon website.

"When you book your tickets you can also book hotels at our special Minecon rates," added Mojang. "We have a variety of hotels available with different prices and different distances from the Convention Center."

The developer adds that more information about this year's convention will be made available in the coming weeks. "There will of course be panels from Mojang and many community members, an awesome tradeshow where you can check out cool products and services revolving around Minecraft, and of course lots of Minecraft merchandise for sale."
