"Mark your calendars. Next year’s about to be extra pog." The company wrote.
The announcement was made earlier today, Wednesday, Sept. 22, via Twitch's official social media accounts. In an associated blog post on the company's website, it reminisced about the time since the last TwitchCon has been held and stated that this upcoming iteration of the event would be a good opportunity for new affiliates and partners to "meet the communities they’ve created or been welcomed into."
We've put together a short guide on everything there is to know about TwitchCon so far.
When is TwitchCon?
At the time of writing, two locations have been announced for Twitch Con. Each has its own set time period the con will take place during. We've listed those below:
- TwitchCon Amsterdam: July 2022
- TwitchCon San Diego: October 2022
No concrete dates have been announced at the time of writing.
How to Attend TwitchCon 2022
Currently, there are no set instructions pertaining to how fans will be able to attend TwitchCon 2022. We assume, like other conventions, tickets will become available as the time period approaches and will be required to attend. Tickets could be tiered to allow access to different events, timed, or feature add-on privileges. They will also likely be segmented into different days according to when the con is running.
Additionally, in the era of Covid-19, we wouldn't be surprised if attendees needed to be vaccinated and be able to produce proof of that vaccination. Twitch could require those vaccines to be up to do date either with both doses or with any released boosters. A negative Covid-19 test could be mandatory, as well, either on top or in lieu of vaccines. Potential attendees should keep this in mind.
