SDCC isn’t the only massive convention in San Diego this year – TwitchCon 2019, the biggest event in streaming is also headed there this September!
What Is TwitchCon?
New to streaming and asking yourself, “What is TwitchCon?” Now in its fifth year, TwitchCon is everything (and everyone!) streaming and gaming and so much more. What started with 20,000 attendees in 2015 with meet-and-greet sessions and discussion panels has exploded into one of the biggest conventions in the U.S. with approximately 75,000 people expected this year and now includes tournaments, cosplay, and even a huge after party. This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of the Twitch community live, meet your favorite streamers, and connect with your chat friends.
