TwitchCon 2017 Is Set For Long Beach

Posted by smotij on March 8th, 2017

It’s time to save the date, gamers. In a relatively unassuming tweet, TwitchCon has finally announced a time and location for its latest meetup. The third annual convention is set for October 20–22 at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

In 2017, it’s all about location, location, location.

Previous attendees (and far-away streamers) will remember the last two TwitchCons were hosted at the San Diego Convention Center — typical home of all things geeky, including the International Comic-Con that attracts over 130,000 people. If you’re wondering why the gaming convention is saying goodbye to its traditional location, it’s in order to accommodate its growing popularity. Though it’s by no means a household name like SDCC, TwitchCon has managed to nearly double in size since its launch. Organizers expect attendance to exceed last year’s 35, 000 people, and this number doesn’t mesh with the community-driven backbone of Twitch.
