TwitchCon is an annual celebration of the Twitch community, including streamers and their fans, as well as moderators, developers, publishers, and the brands that create the products and experiences that help the community flourish. This year’s US TwitchCon, held October 26 – 28 in San Jose, CA, sold out with tens of thousands of visitors. TwitchCon Europe will feature many of the same elements tailored to the region, including an exhibitor-packed expo hall, industry and community-driven panels, meet-and-greets with top streamers, and more.
“TwitchCon was created to celebrate and inspire everyone who plays a role in the Twitch community,” said Kate Jhaveri, Chief Marketing Officer, Twitch. “It’s a vibrant, growing, and global community and we’re excited to bring TwitchCon to Europe for the first time. While there will be a lot of familiar elements to anyone who has ever attended TwitchCon in the US, we’re taking inspiration from the location and distinct cultures across the region to ensure the experience is relevant to all the audiences.”
Twitch selected Berlin, Germany as the location for the TwitchCon Europe event based on its centralized location and Germany’s status as one of the top performing countries in terms of both streamers and viewership. Berlin is also ideal based on proximity to attractions and accommodations, and its accessibility to those traveling from out of the country.
Additional TwitchCon Europe details will be shared in the coming months, including ticket sales, calls-for-content, Partner appearances, exhibitors, programming schedule, and more.
