Twitch has announced the dates and location of TwitchCon 2017, its annual convention for all things Twitch.

This year the convention is moving to Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Long Beach, California on October 20th-22nd.

“Twitch selected the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center for its design and location,” a press release explains. “The center features an impressive main theater and arena, while boasting 150 restaurants in a 10-block radius to accommodate the multitude of expected community meetups. It is also served by three airports—which will be beneficial for the extensive amounts of out-of-state attendees—and surrounded by numerous hotels at more ideal rates than previous TwitchCon locales.”

“It was through the passion of our creators, exhibitors, and fans that TwitchCon doubled in size in its first two years,” Krystal Herring, event director for TwitchCon explained. “Our goal this year is to continue celebrating all things Twitch, including the newer broader scope of content on our platform. With our IRL category for vlogging and our upcoming mobile streaming app, even people who can’t attend will be able to connect with their favorite broadcasters and friends who can.”

According to the press release, this year’s event “will be extending its focus to encapsulate the interests of its broader community.”

More details about the event, including ticket sales and an initial schedule, will be revealed over the next few months.
