This weekend saw a sea of purple flood Long Beach Convention Centre. It’s Twitchcon - the world’s biggest streaming convention, hosted by Twitch.
Streamers, entertainers and influencers from all over the globe headed out to California to attend the third ever installment of the convention, which was set to be their biggest yet.
TwitchCon is a revelry of all things Twitch, video games, memes and streams. Guests were able to meet their favourite streamers, check out a host of panels and talks, and enjoy the variation of wacky and wonderful, geeky entertainment on offer across the weekend.
According to Twitch’s director of PR, Chase, this year's TwitchCon surpassed last year’s attendance of 35,000 by 40%, meaning Twitchcon enjoyed a footfall of almost 50,000 visitors over three days.
The keynote held a number of panels across the weekend on a number of topics, with tips on how to grow and nurture a community, managing a brand, and working with games companies and developers. The panels also covered streaming with disabilities and challenging discrimination online.
