TwitchCon Amsterdam Canceled Due to Coronavirus Fears

TwitchCon Amsterdam is canceled.

Organizers announced on Friday (March 6) that the festival has been canceled due to the ongoing concerns with the spread of coronavirus.

The annual TwitchCon Europe 2020 event was scheduled to take place at RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands from May 2–3.

“To say we’re disappointed you won’t be able to enjoy the show we’ve been building for you is a massive understatement. But the health and safety of our community, employees, and everyone else who has a part in making TwitchCon happen is, as always, our top priority,” they said in the statement.

Attendees who purchased tickets will be issued a full refund.

Twitch is hardly the only company scaling back events in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak – see which companies are also canceling their appearances and planned events.
