Otakon 2021 to Broadcast Live from Convention

Washington, D.C. (July 25, 2021) – For the first time, Otakorp Inc. will give viewers live insights from the convention floor during Otakon 2021. The coverage is free to everyone and will be hosted on Otakon's Twitch channel (Twitch.tv/Otakon).

Throughout the weekend, select events hosted in Panel 1 will be broadcast live, or on tape delay. In addition, the live show "Otakon Connection" will provide additional insight into the Otakon 2021 weekend. This will be the first time Otakon will provide streaming events from the convention floor live in an official capacity. The success of last year's Otakon.Online demonstrated the value of an online presence to Otakon members and potential members.

In addition, the live coverage will make the convention accessible to those who cannot attend this year. Streaming to Twitch will help expand the audience beyond those who can come to Washington, D.C., thus allowing Otakorp to extend the reach of its mission.
