Twitch Announces TwitchCon, Its First Ever Convention For Game Streaming Fans


Conventions, conventions, conventions. Everybody gets a convention. Facebook has F8. Twitter has Flight. Salesforce has Dreamforce. We have TC Disrupt.

And now, Twitch has TwitchCon.

If you’re dubious that there’s enough to Twitch to host a full convention focused around it, that’s okay — plenty of people were dubious that there was enough to the idea of “people watching other people play video games” for Twitch to be a success…

Then it did well enough that Amazon dropped $970 million to acquire it.

With that said, details of what’ll actually happen at the conference are still a bit sparse. While they say the official schedule should be prepped for viewing in the next few months, they’re currently just saying that it’ll be a “celebration of all things Twitch”

This first conference is set for September 25-26th, and will take place at San Francisco’s Moscone West — the same hall that houses Google I/O, WWDC, and a number of other mammoth events.

No word yet on ticket pricing or availability.
