Less than a month after the conclusion of TwitchCon 2018 in San Jose, California, the livestreaming and influencer-focused platform announced this morning they are expanding the convention franchise with the forthcoming TwitchCon Europe 2019 event. TwitchCon Europe 2019 will be hosted at the CityCube venue in Berlin, Germany on April 13-14th.
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 has concluded its fourth year after the 2018 event, but the addition of the new show will make the convention a biannual event. TwitchCon is a show built around its large platform of streamers and influencers and even larger audience, most of whom are gamers, features an expo hall, streamer meet-and-greets, talks and panels, and parties. While condensed into a smaller timeframe, it’s reasonable to expect most of these signature features to be translated intact to TwitchCon Europe 2019.
On a brief official FAQ posted online, Twitch promises different pass options, which will go on sale at a future date. Accessibility needs and multilingual content and interpretation in “English, German, and French” ill also be covered.
But rest east, TwitchCon fans, as the FAQ states that this event is an addition to, not a replacement for, the annual cornerstone event in North America. Still, it may be a while before any news about TwitchCon 2019 emerges since the most recent event was just hosted in late October.
Expect more information about programming, speakers, sponsors and more details to start filling in for TwitchCon Europe 2019 in in the fairly near future. To check out more info about TwitchCon Europe 2019, the website starting point is here.
