VidCon brings together online video, digital creators and like-minded fans all under one roof
VidCon will return to Melbourne this Spring featuring a star-studded line-up of digital stars from 19 - 22 September 2019.
Hosted at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, VidCon is the world's largest celebration of digital greatness. Unlike any other convention hosted in Australia, VidCon brings together online video, digital creators and like-minded fans all under one roof.
Returning to Victoria's capital city for the second year in a row, VidCon 2019 will introduce Melburnian digi-geeks to a plethora of video stars such as The Try Guys. The Try Guys, made up of Keith Habersberger, Ned Fulmer, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang, combined digi forces while working for BuzzFeed in 2014. The awesome comedy foursome has since branched out on their own and stream their unique experiences via YouTube.
The Try Guys represent some of the most premier online YouTube content producers currently streaming and have hit over a billion views across social media platforms (550 million on YouTube alone). Their success is undoubtedly founded on the connections they've formed with their online community of dedicated fans and subscribers.
With a star-studded lineup plus hands-on workshops and masterclasses to help you tap into your creative skills and grow your channel, plus expert advice from the top three social video platforms in the world if you're into online video, this convention was made for you.
Ticket options are divided into three signature tracks for purchasers, providing tailored programming suited to their specific interests:
Community Track: For the online video fans. Attendees will be granted exclusive access to leading fan-favourite creators, including live performances, creative workshops, Q&As and a chance to meet the video stars in person.
Creator Track: For the video creators themselves, the event will provide expert insights into video production, how to grow and monetise social channels efficiently, and tips to build their channels as a brand via workshops, panel discussions and keynotes.
Industry Track: For the industry executives, VidCon AU delivers an invaluable networking opportunity and is a leading resource to learn tips on the trade from experts – including, how to build online communities, must-know trends on the horizon, best practices in video advertising and advice on how to reach the highly coveted Gen Z and millennial audience in APAC.
VidCon US, VidCon AU and VidCon LDN (forthcoming) are the world's largest events for fans, creators, executives and brands who are passionate about online video and building diverse communities. Across the three events, VidCon will host more than 90,000 attendees, in aggregate, via a variety of live on-stage performances, panels, fireside chats, interactive experiences, fan and creator meet & greets, innovative brand activations and more. VidCon's flagship show, VidCon US, will celebrate its 10th Anniversary in 2019. VidCon was founded by veteran YouTube creator Hank Green and was acquired by Viacom in 2018.
