Move TwitchCon NA Out of Las Vegas
Considering the conversations happening both in-person among attendees and online, it's safe to say a large group of attendees consider that Las Vegas wasn't a great fit as a TwitchCon host city.
TwitchCon is about community and coming together. Except in Las Vegas, due to traffic, large distances and road closures, as well as casinos, shows and other entertainment options, going to the expo floor was more of a hassle and afterthought than the main event.
By moving TwitchCon to a more walkable city, like San Diego [the previous-host city], people spend less time, energy as well as money in getting to the TwitchCon venue which makes creators spend more time on the show floor engaging with their peers and community members, everything TwitchCon stands for.
TwitchCon is also an event where Twitch creators are "always-on" - networking with brands to collaborate with; hosting panels; meeting community members and some even competing in events like Twitch Rivals. Sensory overload is a real thing and Twitch's efforts onsite to provide decompressing spaces, like the Friendship Room, were incredibly appreciated. However, Vegas as a city that's also "always-on", with Casinos and Music running 24/7, felt like even when you were at your hotel you were still not in a place where you could entirely decompress and remove yourself from the narrative.
I do not want to discredit the quality of 2023's show or the LVCC, as it shined as a world-class convention center with grand spaces, a decent food offering, and accessibility, but Las Vegas as a city felt like a not the best fit for what TwitchCon is supposed to be.
I'm not sure what the best option for a TwitchCon 2024 host city is, and I trust that the Twitch team will perform their due diligence as they prepare for next year's show, but wanted to share this idea through official channels to measure interest as well.
The proposal from https://cheapmotorcycleshipping.com/ to explore alternative host cities for TwitchCon NA is rooted in optimizing the event's logistics and enhancing community engagement. Recognizing the importance of a conducive environment, the suggestion leans towards a more walkable city, such as miami, to elevate the overall experience of TwitchCon.
I think it would be fun if it was in UT somewhere are NA
The suggestion of https://threemovers.com/ to move TwitchCon NA out of Las Vegas is based on concerns about the city's suitability for fostering community engagement due to logistical challenges and constant distractions, advocating for a more walkable host city like San Diego for a better TwitchCon experience.
I think an east coast Twitch Con would be best. My personal recommendation is NYC as it has the Javits Center, and is the home to major events like New York Comic Con, New York International Auto Show and Anime NYC. The Javits Center has 3.3 million square feet, which would be plenty for Twitch Con. NYC is also a transportation hub, with major highways and easily accessible and well developed public transportation system. New York is also home to JFK International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
To be honest Twitch con 2019 in San Diego was my best experience for Twitch Con and I would love to go there again for the convention as it had plenty of places afterwards to go eat with friends and overall the convention was a great vibe sooo Please let Twitch Con 2024 be in San Diego this year.
Thank you for sharing your perspective on TwitchCon in Las Vegas of https://www.jhbremovals.co.za/. Your feedback about the challenges faced in terms of accessibility and sensory overload is valuable, and we appreciate your input. We'll make sure to consider diverse opinions as we plan for TwitchCon 2024 and aim to create an event that best aligns with the needs and preferences of the Twitch community.
Pittsburgh would be a great place they have a huge convention center
I feel like Cleveland, Ohio or Pittsburgh, PA would be good options for 2024. Both have international airports, train, and bus lines with easy access and decent transit options. Say what you will about both cities, but they have plenty of attractions, space, accommodations, food options to please nearly anyone, they're fairly cost effective for the regular streamer, moderator, or fan to enjoy without going into debt just to visit, and both cities are actively remodeling and expanding their options. Maybe it's time to shine some light on the overlooked Midwest cities. So if we're discussing or even pitching ideas, that's my suggestion.
Syracuse NY has a huge fairgrounds that would be amazing for twitchcon 2024!!
Ok Texas would be great for the next Twitchcon its in the middle of the country no california please and no florida either . Las Vegas was a blast just had to plan and it was like to vacations in one . Texas Dallas , Austin those city are full of stuff to do. Vegas really gave other family member who came along choices
Consider relocating TwitchCon NA from Las Vegas to a more walkable city, such as San Diego, to enhance the attendee experience by reducing travel hassles and providing a better environment for creators to engage with their community, fostering the true spirit of https://www.jhbremovals.co.za/. The move could offer a more conducive setting for networking, collaboration, and decompression, aligning with the event's community-focused goals.
I want to see it somewhere other than California! I don't understand why it's always there. There's a whole country here full of great places! Lets see some Central US and East Coast US dates!!!
Let's go to the East Coast :)
i mean when i went to San Diego Twitch Con I waited for 45 mins just to park.. but once i was parked i did enjoy San Diego Twitch Con better.
TwitchCon 2023 in Vegas has its ups and down. But the Ups outweigh the downs in my opinion.
One of the Major thing that made TwitchCon a Tad convenient this year was the Vegas Loop Company. If any of you did not know the Vegas Loop is a Tesla Operated loop system connecting the whole convention center and to this date Resorts World Hotel. With projects approved to connect all the other hotels in the System. Even if we get another TwitchCon alongside F1 or music festival. The Vegas loop will be a huge benefit for people going to and from their hotels. Better mode of transportation compared to The prices of Uber and taxis and the system itself is underground so Zero Traffic.
The only downside I see is multiple events happening at the same time. But other than that. Vegas is a perfect/ideal spot for events like TwitchCon. Would love to have it back in Vegas
I think it would be cool to move in to the Anaheim convention center?!?! At least it would be safer for streamers to attend ,Thoughts?
I was at TwitchCon Sat and When we were young Sun. I had a blast due to going to 2 events. But I wish TwitchCon would come east coast for 2024.
I agree wholeheartedly, the expenses for Las Vegas outstretched any foreseeable budget. Hotels even when booked early were too expensive for the event. Traveling to offsite locations for the parties and meetups was unbearabe due to parking options, cost of lyfts/uber, availability of drivers wait time and traffic.
I would love to see TwitchCon in a more cozy environment with offsite options that are more favorable to all attendees.
Location is really my only complaint as I very much so enjoyed TwitchCon itself.
However, with all the travel variables and traffic issues, it was impossible to leave and return in any decent amount of time.
I know planning something this large and the logistics are extremely chaotic behind the scenes, and I believe it was done amazingly well! Some things should be posted ahead of the event, namely the sessions, and events that attendees want to schedule for. That would be my only input for the event itself.
More notice if the schedule please.
Location options for future TwitchCon?
Houston, TX - SixFlags "Party"
(This would be amazing)
This was the first TwitchCon I have been able to attend, I was there for the whole event, and still wasn't able to see everything because I was in sessions most every day. But I enjoyed myself immensely and look forward to future Cons!
As long as it's not in Vegas ever again. Vegas itself was not fun nor visitor friendly.
Thank you for an amazing event!
When will we know where the next TwitchCon will be??? Since Secret Squirrel didn't announce it...
I didn’t go this year though I was in Vegas for When We Were Young fest. I agree with all of your concerns, but I think honestly it was really bad planning on the convention organizers part. They knew ahead of time that the music festival was taking place, however they probably didn’t know about F1 or the construction. I think honestly it was moreso poor planning than it was location. Vegas is a great city, I think too much was just taking place in the same weekend. I most definitely would have attended given it being on a different date.
I for one, loved Las Vegas, and PLEASE do not move TwitchCon to a state like Florida where it is unsafe for out lgbT streamers to attend~
