Twitch's annual convention TwitchCon will be heading across to Europe in 2019.
The event will take place at Berlin's CityCube on April 13th and 14th in addition to the company's main US-based weekender. The announcement was made via TwitchCon's official Twitter.
The first TwitchCon event took place in 2015, and the convention continues to be a fan favourite. However, its Los Angeles location makes it difficult for some European streamers and community members to attend.
TwitchCon serves as a celebration of the vibrant streaming community that Twitch has amassed since its launch in 2011. The platform now has more than 15 million daily active users.
“TwitchCon was created to celebrate and inspire everyone who plays a role in the Twitch community,” said Twitch chief marketing officer Kate Jhaveri.
“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.”
Now that #TwitchCon 2018 is over, we knew we couldn’t wait a whole year to do it all again. So we’re not going to.— TwitchCon 2018 (@TwitchCon) November 21, 2018
