TwitchCon is all set to make its way to Europe in 2019, thus effectively doubling the number of Twitch-focused conventions the streaming company plans on organizing next year.
Berlin’s CityCube has had the honor of being selected as the venue for TwitchCon Europe that is scheduled to be held between 13th and 14th April 2019, due to its centralized position 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,” says Twitch.
Further details regarding TwitchCon Europe will start being shared in the upcoming months, including details about ticket sales, calls-for-content, Partner appearances, exhibitors, and programming schedule among others.
The annual TwitchCon is held to celebrate the Twitch community. The 2018 US TwitchCon took place in San Jose this October and it sold out quickly enough with tens of thousands of visitors, says the company. TwitchCon Europe, for its part, will be featuring many of the same elements tailored to the region, including an exhibitor-packed expo hall, industry and community-driven panels, and meet-and-greets with top streamers.
TwitchCon was created to celebrate and inspire everyone who plays a role in the Twitch community. 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. – Kate Jhaveri, Chief Marketing Officer, Twitch
Twitch has yet to announce the location and dates for TwitchCon US, 2019.
