Why is Beachcon no longer at Cal State Long Beach?

We outgrew our venue at The Pointe exponentially! We came to an agreement with The Pointe staff that the event was no longer meant to be run under the Housing and Residential Life Department at CSULB.

We want to thank Thunder Esports Center for being an amazing presenting partner of this year’s Beachcon and a huge special thanks to all of the staff at CSULB that have supported this event for twelve years. We hope to make a milestone return to campus someday!

Parking will be $5 [Each Day] at the venue.
