How Has VidCon Evolved In The Past Decade?
The Premier Online Video Event: A Brief History Of VidCon
Serving as part pop culture festival, part networking conference, and part trade show, VidCon has become the world’s premier event for the fans of social media stars and influencers. Conceived by the Vlogbrothers (veteran YouTubers John and Hank Green) in 2010, VidCon was originally designed to bring physically disconnected online video enthusiasts together under one roof.
Eight years later, VidCon has expanded in attendance, geography, and scope as it continues to further its mission of connecting the digital video community and democratizing its economy. It’s also become a centerplace for top brands looking to reach these audiences as well as the de facto influencer marketing industry conference.
