TwitchCon Amsterdam Canceled Due To Coronavirus Issues

Next up on the chopping block due to the coronavirus is TwitchCon Amsterdam, which is essentially the official version of the event for all of Europe. The event was set to take place from May 2-3, but after all the coronavirus issues happening now in Europe, the company decided to shut it down and issued the statement below. The company is offering refunds to those who have paid for tickets in advance, no word yet on how they're handling vendors.

We have been monitoring Coronavirus concerns and having weighed the potential health risks to our community we've made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel TwitchCon Amsterdam.

TwitchCon is the best weekend to be a Twitch fan. 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.

Anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded the full amount of your TwitchCon ticket. Cancellations will be issued no later than Friday, March 20. Please allow up to an additional 20 days for the refund to be processed with your financial institution. A confirmation email of your ticket cancellation will be sent to the email address you entered when purchasing your ticket.

If you have booked through Twitch's hotel block, cancellations can be done free of charge depending on the conditions of your booking though you will need to contact RAI Hotel Services to cancel, we cannot do so on your behalf. You can cancel online or send them an email on hotelservices@rai.nl. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee refunds for those who booked outside of Twitch's hotel block and you will need to contact the hotel or rental directly to discuss.
