Stream Con draws digital conference newbies on Halloween



NEW YORK — Halloween at Stream Con was quieter than expected, with shorter lines and fairly tame crowds.

Thousands of fans, creators and industry members flocked to Javits Center on Saturday for the second day of the inaugural digital content conference. Many who showed up — parents and teens alike — were tri-state locals who said they were first timers to digital content conferences like Stream Con.
