This year TwitchCon is introducing the Industry Pass for attendees involved in the development, publishing and/or promotion of products and services that cater to the Twitch community.

In addition to ticket ordering information, Twitchcon.com now showcases dozens of featured broadcasters.

Returning to TwitchCon for its second year is Daybreak™’s H1Z1 Invitational . In this spectator-friendly, fast-paced tournament event, participants compete in large-scale PvP shooter spectacles of skill and wit, where everyone must fight to the death to stand alone at the top of the podium. At last year’s inaugural H1Z1 Invitational , more than 356K unique viewers tuned in to watch 60 of the most popular broadcasters and players compete in Battle Royale matches to win their share of over $173,000 in prize money.

Daybreak is kicking off their Road to TwitchCon with King of the Kill™ livestreams from PAX East all weekend long from 4/23-4/24. Fans can tune in to watch some of their favorite participants from last year’s Invitational fight it out in intense Battle Royale matches. Visit the game’s website and follow King of the Kill on Twitter where they will be revealing information about the prize pool, competitors, community contests, on-site TwitchCon qualifiers, and more throughout the summer.

TwitchCon 2016 will take place September 30-October 2 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. To assist with accommodations, Twitch has negotiated travel discounts and secured a limited number of reduced-rate hotel rooms near the convention center. Since rooms at the group rate are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, book early for the best selection and price through Twitch’s online booking system .
