The main event of the streaming world TwitchCon makes its comeback to LAN format. As usual, the annual event for the broadcast community will feature some of the platform’s famous content makers, meetups and gaming competitions. Fans can enjoy the action this weekend, July 16-17 in Amsterdam.

TwitchCon is one of the most-awaited events of the year in the streaming community as it unites content creators, fans and gaming lovers in one place. The event was held each year before the pandemic, however, in 2020 the organizers decided to move the convention online and called it GlitchCon 2020.

In 2021, Twitch cancelled the event completely and started to raise expectations for 2022 as there were plans for something big and exciting. As a result, the company announced two events for this year! The first one will be TwitchCon Amsterdam, which is scheduled for July 16-17, while the second one will be held in San Diego from October 7-9. 

The upcoming convention will take place on July 16-17 at RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. The tickets were available for one or two days for €65 or €108, but at the time of writing, they have been sold out. Each customer gets access to various meetups and activities as well as a unique Chat Badge for their Twitch account along with exclusive goodies.
