There were 5 featured speakers, who each drew over 1,000 attendees to their talks. Roberto Garcia, aka Towelliee, a well-known WoW player drew thousands of people to his virtual Q&A session, with a thousand more watching the stream online. Jeff Lewis, who plays Vork on The Guild was also a speaker at the event.

It's been also noted that fans spent 190,000 Rays (UtherConvetion's virtual currency) during the event. Organizers also had draws every hour for various prizes such as WoW Game Time cards and $150 credit at the Blizzard online store.

The registration to attend WoW FanCon was free.
