Twitch announces TwitchCon in San Francisco

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

During their Twitch Weekly update show host Marcus "djWHEAT" Graham announced TwitchCon, taking place Sep. 25 and 26 at San Francisco's Moscone center.

Plans are still underway, and Twitch would like the community's input on what should happen at the event. A new Twitter account, @twitchconsf, opened moments ago, and Twitch staff will be starting a dialogue there, as well as using the #twitchweekly Twitter tag.

A press release states that those who attend will be able to meet their favorite broadcasters, have the opportunity to experience live content broadcast directly from the convention center, and "learn from the community’s thought-leaders."

"Twitch broadcasters have the most passionate fans, so we want to create an amazing experience where they can come together in person," said Emmett Shear, CEO of Twitch. "TwitchCon will be an opportunity for the entire community — broadcasters, game developers, viewers, and us — to play and learn together."

A website is now live for the event.
