July 23 – 25, 2015 was not just three normal and average days – they were historic days. July 23 – 25, 2015 marked the legendary Vidcon 2015 that brought all your favorite YouTube stars, Vine sensations, the latest technology like new cameras and apps and everything that the digital media world encompasses under one roof at the Anaheim Convention Center. Words are truly not sufficient enough to describe just how magnificent and extraordinary Vidcon was yet again this year. The renowned and prestigious Vidcon event gave attendees the opportunities to attend informative panels, meet their favorite content creators and gave industry attendees the chance to get up-to-date with all the latest tech inventions. As soon as you enter in the Anaheim Convention Center grounds, attendees will be overwhelmed with excitement with just how many events and activities that is presented to them at Vidcon. So, let’s take a look at this year’s magical and stupendous Vidcon event in both the outside and inside!
Think the Vidcon excitement is only indoors – no way! Outside you will instantly find lines of fans and attendees waiting to meet some of their favorite content creators who decided to step out and enjoy the nice, sunny day in Anaheim and take the time to meet their fans and take tons of photos. Yes, Vidcon attendees always wonder “Will I be able to meet my favorite content creator?” and the answer is YES! Many Youtubers and Viners even come outside, aside from their events indoors, and meet their fans. Also outside is the epic AwesomenessTV stage where the exceptional AwesomenessTV holds all of its terrific activities and sensational performances. Continuing on down you have the awesome food trucks with every delicious food you could think of – want a BLT sandwich or want to snack on some ice-cream, there is a food truck for you there!
Indoors is where even more magic takes place. Each year, the spectacular Vidcon has many terrific events planned out from panels to presentations to meet-and-greet opportunities! Vidcon also has an excellent Expo Hall with so many different booths that you can drop by and see all the latest inventions in the digital media world – from the BroadbandTV booth, Fullscreen booth to the Taco Bell booth, Covergirl Booth, NBC Booth, Gibson Booth, the Firetalk Booth (which is an online streaming app that even had SMOSH, among others, talk at their booth), the Famous Birthdays booth and so much more! Attendees can also game away and drop by the Nickelodeon arcade. The stupendous Nickelodeon had a lot of extraordinary things planned out at Vidcon including their arcade and they unveiled a sneak peek of their new show, “Game Shakers” with Josh Peck and Glozell!
History was made at Vidcon on so many different levels. For instance, the world record for the largest cell phone wire was broken during Vidcon prom and a video of that can be seen here. Also, YouTube phenomenons SMOSH had their Madame Tussauds wax figure at the Taco Bell booth for fans to get up close and personal with. Entertainment Weekly and People also had a separate interviewing stage.
NeoReach also held a kick-off after-party on the first day of Vidcon that I had the great pleasure of attending! NeoReach brought together 300 of the world’s sensational YouTube stars and made everyone have a stupendous time as they get ready for two more amazing days at Vidcon! The NeoReach After-Party was truly a blast and I had a marvelous time attending it! You can learn more about NeoReach at http://neoreach.com/.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the utmost and greatest honor of covering Vidcon again for my site! I had the honor of covering Vidcon last year and to be back covering this spectacular event again this year continues to be so surreal. Digital media, YouTube, Vine and all these new apps and platforms are changing the lives of people in so many different ways and you can truly see it all celebrated at Vidcon.
