CREATOR ECONOMY NEWSLETTER
VidCon, the beloved digital creator convention founded by John and Hank Green, is turning 13 next year. Within that time, the event has grown beyond what anyone could have imagined in 2010, scaling to multiple conferences in various global cities since it was acquired by Paramount Global (formerly Viacom) in 2018.
In all of its years, the convention has never come to the East Coast of the United States—until now. The brand announced it was holding a VidCon event in Baltimore next fall, with hopes to bring the experience to more people in the U.S. Many were perplexed by the location, but VidCon’s senior vice president of marketing and communications Sarah Tortoreti explained the decision—and more—to Passionfruit reporter Grace Stanley. Learn more about the event below.
