Thanks for an Amazing TwitchCon 2015!

TwitchCon 2015 was, in one word: Unbelievable. Amazing. Epic. Family. More magnificent than we could have hoped. But maybe the one word that sums it up best is PASSION. That’s what we put in, that’s what you put in. And that passion made this kind of show possible. We love you all, so a big thank you to those who attended in person and watched online, and to those that just kept grinding by broadcasting and watching during the weekend because you love your Twitch community.

More than 20,000 of you attended and over 1.9 million of you watched online. Over 600 Twitch Partners were in attendance. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you ALL for making the inaugural TwitchCon a success!

Who wants to do this again next year? What was great and what could we have done better? Let us know in the comments!

The Merch Store — A mea culpa

Thank you to everyone who got in line at the merch store. We knew people wanted Twitch-branded items, but maybe we underestimated a wee bit. Since this was our first time selling merch at a convention, we definitely learned A LOT, and we promise to get this right in the future. We loved all of your anticipation and excitement, and most of all we really loved your smiles. Thanks so much for your patience, perseverance, and your love of Twitch.


A grand total of $17,212.00 was raised for charity at TwitchCon 2015 thanks to our amazing partners in the Tiltify Charity Zone!


Thank you to all the sponsors and exhibitors who helped make TwitchCon 2015 possible, especially our Presenting Sponsors: lntel Realsense, Guild Wars 2, and World of Warships.

We ❤ You, Too
