TwitchCon 2015 will take place at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, the same venue as the Game Developers Conference.
Other gamer-focused conventions include MineCon (Minecraft) and BlizzCon (Blizzard Entertainment), ParadoxCon (Paradox Interactive), QuakeCon (Bethesda), PAX, and others.
TwitchCon will be organized by ReedPop, the group that also puts together big-name shows such as PAX and New York Comic-Con, among others.
According to a March report, Twitch--which is owned by Amazon--will soon face new competition from YouTube. That Google-owned video site is reportedly planning a significant overhaul of its live events functionality with a specific focus on gaming.
