VidCon Sets 10th Annual Convention For July 2019

VidCon, the convention for YouTube and digital video creators, will hold its 10th annual event in July, 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

VidCon has traditionally been held in June, but for 2019, it will be pushed to July 10-13 so as not to overlap with the Cannes Lion festival, per the company.

This year’s VidCon drew some 74,000 attendees seeking to hear from digital video creators. Another 15,000 or so attended a pair of VidCon offshoots in Austria and Amsterdam.

The company is adding another event in London next February.

Founded by YouTube creators Hank and John Green, VidCon was acquired by Viacom earlier this year. At the time, Viacom and the Green brothers said they hoped the corporate ownership would allow the company to expand globally.

Specifics on the 2019 conference are still to be determined, but executive producer of VidCon U.S. Julia Maes stated it “will be a special blend of veteran and new rising talent from all the major platforms, throwback activations (the internet loves a ‘remember when’), and all the future-focused programming and conversations VidCon is known for.”
