With TwitchCon 2019 rapidly approaching, Twitch have just announced the dates and location for the 5th edition of the annual convention.
TwitchCon is one of the biggest conventions in all of video games, bringing together many of the most popular streamers and personalities on Twitch.
On February 20, Twitch officially announced that TwitchCon 2019 will take place from September 27-29 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego. California.

TwitchCon 2019 marks the fifth time in as many years that the popular convention will take place in California.
It will also be TwitchCon's second stint in San Diego, with TwitchCon 2016 also taking place at the San Diego Convention Center.
No other details besides the venue and date were announced, but Twitch assured fans that more details on ticket sales, streamer appearances, and programming schedules would be revealed in the coming months.
While TwitchCon started out as strictly a convention filled with streamer meet-and-greets and panels on various streaming topics, it's quickly become one of the premier destinations for high-level esports competition, as well.
With the recent release and popularity spike of Apex Legends, including Twitch's own Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament, there's almost no doubt that it will also be heavily featured during TwitchCon 2019.
