Good news for European gaming fans and all Twitch aficionados – Twitch has announced a new TwitchCon event, which will be held in Berlin in the spring of 2019.
The event will take place over two days, April 13-14, at CityCube Berlin. Twitch stated that the new TwitchCon will bring the same festival atmosphere and celebration of gaming culture, creators and fans that the US one does, but focused on the large European community the site enjoys. “TwitchCon was created to celebrate and inspire everyone who plays a role in the Twitch community,” Kate Jhaveri, Twitch’s Chief Marketing Officer, said. “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.”
The German capital was chosen because of its central location. Also, Germany is “one of the top performing countries in terms of both streamers and viewership,” as well as the attractions and accommodation Berlin offers and its relative accessibility for people in different parts of Europe.
More details and tickets will become available over the following months. See you in Berlin!
