The show kicks off on September 30th at 2:00pm PT. Spoilers: BIG news is coming.
#5 — Make TwitchCon YOUR event
The TwitchCon schedule is packed with events, tournaments, panels, and more. Whether it’s board games, esports, education, or inclusivity, we made sure that there’s an area for you to hang at the convention center. Here is just a small sample of what’s to come.
#6 — Get Ready for Battle
We love a good battle, so for TwitchCon, we made an arena. This year’s TwitchCon Arena is packed with spectator and LAN events, including titles like CS:GO, Overwatch, and Rocket League. Our Streamline Road to Twitchcon concludes with a $10,000 grand finale with open spots to qualify for from the show floor. The H1Z1 Invitational is set to be the biggest TwitchCon tournament ever, with an all-star cast of competitors and over $250,000 in prizes. Grab a seat and enjoy the competition!
#7 — Party Hard
Here at Twitch, we like to party. There will be lights. There will be music. You might even get hit in the face with a cake. It’s going to be wild, and we want to make sure you’re prepared to have a good time.
For the main event, TwitchCon 2016: The Party takes over Petco Park for our largest party ever. The party starts with the HP Heroes of the Storm Omen Challenge Championship, where the first 1,000 attendees get free pizza. Then, join world-renowned DJ, Steve Aoki, and special guests Darude and two-time Grammy winner T-Pain for a night of music, gaming, fireworks, and more! The party of the year starts on October 1st, but you can get your tickets now here to skip the ticket line and get straight to the show.
Just like last year, we’re hoping that TwitchCon 2016 is an amazing event for streamers, viewers, and gamers all around the world. We hope these tips help you have an amazing convention!
