TwitchCon Returns to San Diego Through 2028


TwitchCon, the annual conference for the live streaming platform Twitch, is returning to San Diego after a brief stint in Las Vegas.

Organizers recently announced that TwitchCon will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from 2024 through 2028.

The conference left San Diego following its 2022 event.

Last year it was held in Las Vegas but Twitch has now signed a new multi-year deal to bring TwitchCon back to America’s Finest City.

Twitch has signed a 5-year contract to host TwitchCon at the San Diego Convention Center from 2024 through 2028.

Why San Diego?

According to Twitch, San Diego has been a favorite location among attendees.

The city’s great weather, beaches, attractions, and amenities make for an ideal convention experience.

Holding TwitchCon in San Diego for multiple consecutive years allows the community to really embrace the city.

Also, hosting in the same city multiple years in a row allows the Twitch community to become familiar with San Diego and build lasting relationships there.

The San Diego Tourism Authority also actively courted TwitchCon’s return.

They emphasized how San Diego drives strong attendance and delivers an excellent attendee experience.

A Win-Win for Twitch and San Diego

This multi-year deal is a big win for both TwitchCon and San Diego.

The conference continues to grow over the year, attracting over 30,000 attendees per day for 3-day events.

San Diego has proven capable of handling this large influx and providing a top-notch venue.

When TwitchCon was last held in San Diego in 2022, it generated over $43 million in direct spending on hotels, dining, entertainment, and transportation.

The estimated total economic impact was valued at more than $74 million.

Securing TwitchCon for another 5 years will continue yielding huge tourism dollars.

What to Expect at TwitchCon

TwitchCon offers plenty of opportunities for streamers and fans to meet, including panels, meetups, workshops, contests, and live performances.

Attendees can try new games and products, shop merchandise, and party into the night.

It’s a high-energy celebration of the vibrant Twitch community.

Whether you’re a streamer looking to grow your channel or a fan excited to meet your favorite personalities, TwitchCon is a must-do.

TwitchCon will be held on Sept. 20-22, 2024.

Also, organizers are planning to hold a European convention in Rotterdam this June.
