TwitchCon 2016 will come to San Diego in September

After a successful first year, TwitchCon 2016 is officially set for later this year. However, there's going to be a change of venue this year. While the 2015 TwitchCon drew in over 20,000 attendees to San Francisco's Moscone Center, Twitch is moving the party a little farther south to San Diego.

The San Diego Convention Center, which houses events like July's San Diego Comic-Con, will house the second annual gathering of Twitch broadcasters, viewers, and developers from September 30 through October 2. While the convention will host many of the same types of panels and live events held by Twitch's most recognized streamers, as well as some noteworthy game developers, Twitch is also taking some of the lessons learned from last year's event to put on an even better showing this year.

No further information has been given about this year's TwitchCon, but look for more in the coming months, including a tentative schedule and on-sale dates for tickets.
