What We’ve Been Up To: Twitchcon 2018

AbleGamers took part in TwitchCon 2018, which took place in the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. This year’s conference took place October 26th through October 28th.


AbleGamers participated in the Tiltify Charity Plaza, allowing the streaming community to come visit and network with AbleGamers staff face to face. Not only that, but plenty of streamers stopped by to support AbleGamers and find out how to host a fundraiser with their communities. Over the weekend, there was a Games Done Quick event as well as a charity decathalon that put partnered streamers against each other to win funding for the charity. The people on the AbleGamers team were Kintinue , Spoonee, TheOnlyRyann , Anomally, SilentUschi, Smashley, Xmiramira, Kate, TheRealGuyJudge, Derpchu, Woxli, Kaiito. AbleGamers also had a space at Twitchcon in the Twitch Unity Lounge, allowing AbleGamers to share a room with many other great organizations, as well as to have one on one conversations with gamers about the technology that AbleGamers grants out and show how the technology works.

Our friends at Lightstream also made donations to our cause for every photo tweeted out by people wearing the AbleGamers/Lightstream/Bongo Cat pin using the hashtag #LightStreamAble.

AbleGamers would like to thank Twitch, Tiltify, Lightstream, GamesDoneQuick, and all of our volunteers for making Twitchcon the amazing weekend that it was, and look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
