From YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Musical.ly, YouNow, and beyond – what social media platforms are YOU on? When asked that question, the list could probably go on and on. That’s the world we live in – the social media world and my, oh my has it changed our lives in more ways than imaginable. There’s only one stupendous convention that celebrates the wonderful world of online-video making that we live in and it’s none other than the epic and renowned VidCon convention. 8 years ago, VidCon started off as a convention that celebrates creating amazing content for online platforms such as YouTube. Now, 8 years later, VidCon has and continues to grow and establish itself as one of the biggest conventions out. VidCon, which garners over 27,000 attendees each year (and that number continues to grow) has now gone international and in addition to its annual convention held at the Anaheim Convention Center, VidCon is hosting conventions in Europe and Australia as well.

This year, the prestigious VidCon convention was held on June 22 – 24, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. As soon as you see the extra large “VidCon” sign posted outside of the Anaheim Convention Center, you know that you’re in for three of the greatest days of your life. VidCon never fails to give attendees three of the most unforgettable days – from community pass holders, to creators, those from the industry as well as the featured content creators themselves. This year was yet again jam-packed with an indescribable amount of excitement. VidCon had over 400 of the biggest content creators out, basically meaning it was three days of pure “fan”-demonium and could you blame us?! Some of the many online video makers in attendance included highly-acclaimed creators such as Casey Neistat, The Fine Brothers, Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Joey Graceffa, Miranda Sings, Dan Howell, Phil Lester, Kian Lawley, Jc Caylen, Tyler Oakley, Jenna Marbles, Zach King, Anthony Padilla, GloZell, Kingsley, Meg DeAngelis, the Merrell Twins, Alisha Marie, Bethany Mota, Patrick Starrr, Alli Fitz, AndreasChoice, Bertie Gilbert, Caspar Lee, Bretman Rock, David Dobrik, Liza Koshy, Ingrid Nilsen, Lele Pons, Leroy Sanchez, Marcus Butler, Ricky Dillon, Rosanna Pansino, Zach Clayton, and many, many more. VidCon creators and geniuses, John Green and Hank Green were also in attendance.

Attendees were able to enjoy a ton of interesting panels and interviews at the many stages at Vidcon including the Vidcon Gaming Stage, Instant Interview Stage, and others. Attendees were able to learn more about their favorite online-video creators and even get to ask them some of their burning questions. Industry pass holders were able to get the latest insight in the world of online-video making and what’s next in this fast-paced, constantly evolving world. VidCon is the perfect place for fans to get up close and personal with their favorite creators. There were many meet and greet opportunities where fans were able to take some of the cutest photos with the creators they love the most.

The fun and excitement continued at VidCon’s Expo Hall. The Expo Hall is definitely one of everyone’s favorite places to go to and hang out at – both attendees and featured creators themselves like to stop by and visit all of the booths. The Expo Hall had many terrific areas to stop by at – from Nickelodeon, who had a whole area with tons of excellent activities for everyone to enjoy. People were able to make their very own slime to take home with them as their VidCon souvenir and even get the chance to be slimed themselves! (You know that it’s everyone’s dream to be slimed at least once in their life). Nickelodeon even had dancing sensation, singer, and social media star, JoJo Siwa debut her new music video at VidCon and even share the love by giving fans some of her signature JoJo Siwa bows.

Other fun booths and areas at VidCon’s Expo Hall included the Cooking Channel’s “Genius Kitchen” where you were able to get a hands on experience and fulfill your sweet tooth by decorating your very own donut. Dove, Maltesers, M&Ms, NBC, Despicable Me 3, Live.Me, Disney, Taco Bell, Studio71, Instagram, Hubert’s Lemonade, Musical.ly and more all had incredible activities and great photo-ops for VidCon attendees to enjoy.

Our faves at AwesomenessTV also had a lot planned out for VidCon guests. A wonderful AwesomenessTV and Live.Me ball pit was right outside of the convention center for everyone to try out and get a slow-mo video of themselves taking a dive into the ball pit. AwesomenessTV also had its festival stage where people were able to see great performances and jam out all day long. Just as cool as the inside of the convention center was the outside – tons of food trucks with scrumptious treats were lined up outside if you wanted to take a break from your hectic VidCon day and get some grub.

There is no question as to why VidCon is such a great success. No amount of words can fully describe just how enjoyable VidCon is. It’s a great place to celebrate your love for creating or those that you admire watching on YouTube and other social media platforms. VidCon has helped people believe in themselves, inspire individuals to follow after their dreams and express themselves by creating videos, and it has even allowed friendships to be created. What better place to meet new people and make new friends than at a convention where everyone shares the same love and passion for online-video making?! VidCon is a terrific event for friends and families to go to and it’s a very safe and organized environment.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of covering VidCon 2017 for my fourth year in a row. VidCon is, without a doubt, one of my favorite events of the year and I always look forward to it.

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/.

Vidcon was filled with every Youtube favorite you could name from Glozell, Miranda Sings, Joey Graceffa, Tyler Oakley, Connor Franta, Bethany Mota, Weekly Chris and Crawford Collins, Golden, Jonah Green, Lilly Singh, Ricky Dillon, the Merrell Twins, Lauren Elizabeth, Teala Dunn, Hannah Hart and the list goes on and on. Viners filled the Anaheim Convention Center and included Zach King, Zach Piona, Wahlid Mohammad, Alx James, Brittany Furlan, Landon Moss, Oscar Guerra, Wellington Boyce, Darius Benson, Omar Honim, Cody Ko and more.

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. Vidcon always manages to bring fun together in such a safe environment. Vidcon is a great place to meet new people and there is something special about the magic in the air during Vidcon.

Vidcon 2015 was beyond successful!
