WHAT IS VIDCON?
VidCon is an event and experience for those who work in online video and those who love it. Made for both the creators and viewers of the online video industry, VidCon 2018 will again be a celebration of everything that makes this medium awesome, bringing together a global community that believes online video is the most important cultural force since the motion picture.
VidCon was started in 2010 by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, as a place where people who had only ever met on the internet could connect in real life. Since then, the VidCon event in the United States has expanded to over 30,000 people and in 2018 will continue to grow into the new wing of the Anaheim Convention Center, the event’s home for the past several years.
WHO IS VIDCON FOR?
In a word: everyone!
VidCon has a unique design that allows everyone, no matter their interests, to easily find the content and activities suited to them. This is done by building the whole event around three tracks:
