TwitchCon 2017: Call for Content

If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that the Twitch community will never cease to amaze us with their ingenuity, cleverness, and passion. The incredible session ideas that you’ve proposed for TwitchCon over the last two years are a testament to that. We may rent the building, but it’s you, the community, who supply the memories.

Have we buttered you up enough? Great, because the TwitchCon 2017 Call for Content is going live today.

This year we’ve got the entire Long Beach Convention Center to ourselves, so we need all the awesome session, workshop, and panel ideas you’ve got. If you’re passionate about something, it’s related to Twitch, and you think the community would dig it, then we want to hear about it. It’s your chance to be a special part of TwitchCon history, so read on for all the details.

If you’re looking to show off your latest dance routine or cosplay creation, hold tight. This call for content is for sessions only.

Selection Process

You can submit your session proposals at starting today and the ancient, sacred, and infallible TwitchCon committee will be accepting submissions through July 3rd. Selected presenters will be notified of the status of their submission by no later than July 17th.

If your session is accepted, all participants will be given TwitchCon speaker badges to the show. If we think there’s a good match, the TwitchCon team may opt to put a featured streamer or streamers on your panel. You will be notified of this when your panel is accepted.

Here are a few of the most popular panels over the last two years along with some real comments from attendees.

How to Get Sponsored When You Aren’t That Big… Yet

“All of the speakers were very helpful. They were upfront and honest which is the best kind of information when trying to educate yourself on how to be a better streamer.”

“The panel speakers were amazing. Truly opened my eyes on what I was doing wrong and how to improve!”

9 to 5 to 9: How to Balance Your Time “10/10 Would like this to be a re-occurring session; pivotal in the growth of newer/developing streamers” “All of the speakers shared personal experience which solidified the presentation”

Tips and Tricks for Better Chat

“Loved this panel. Great points and tips as well as entertaining panelists. Def recommend for streamers at any level.”

But, but, when do tickets go on sale?

The wait is nearly over. Tickets for TwitchCon will be on sale by the end of May, so book that travel and hotel before it’s too late and stay tuned to the Twitch Blog for more details as they happen.

We’ll see you in Long Beach, fam.
