Topps DigiCon 2020 Creates Virtual Convention for Company’s Trading Card Apps
Topps Digital is hosting its own convention — virtually, of course. Topps DigiCon 2020 runs Thursday, August 24 through Sunday, August 27, offering previews and behind-the-scenes looks at the company’s various trading card and collectibles apps.
It’ll all be broadcast on Topps Digital’s DigiCast channel on Twitch.
The schedule is a mix of live and pre-recorded content, a variety of panels where viewers can participate and ask questions, watch along parties and more.
Among the events is a panel with WWE Superstars Drew McIntyre and Alexa Bliss. Another features Brian Crosby, a former Disney Imagineer and current Marvel Themed Entertainment Creative Director. Artists will be part of multiple events as well, showing how digital trading cards are designed and created.
The event runs from 11:30 AM to 5 PM EST on each of the four days of Topps DigiCon 2020.
