Twitch have announced they’ll be joining the convention crowd with their first annual TwitchCon due to be held this year in San Francisco.
Created as a celebration of all things Twitch, the convention will attract members of the Twitch community from all over the globe. Attendees will have the chance to mingle with each other and their favorite broadcasters, experience live content from the convention center, and learn from the community’s thought-leaders.
Twitch broadcasters have the most passionate fans, so we want to create an amazing experience where they can come together in person. TwitchCon will be an opportunity for the entire community – broadcasters, game developers, viewers, and us – to play and learn together.
said Emmett Shear, CEO, Twitch.
The event is being co-produced by Twitch and ReedPOP, the largest producer of pop culture events in the world.
More details about TwitchCon will be revealed over the coming months including an initial schedule and a call for content. We’ll keep you updated here on TiX but but check out the TwitchCon homepage and subscribe to the official Twitch Twitter feed.
