VidCon US 2018

Anaheim Convention Center

Anaheim, CA

From the VidCon US website: "VidCon is an event and experience for those who work in online video and those who love it. Made for both the creators and viewers of the online video industry, VidCon 2018 will again be a celebration of everything that makes this medium awesome, bringing together a global community that believes online video is the most important cultural force since the motion picture.

VidCon was started in 2010 by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, as a place where people who had only ever met on the internet could connect in real life. Since then, the VidCon event in the United States has expanded to over 30,000 people and in 2018 will continue to grow into the new wing of the Anaheim Convention Center, the event’s home for the past several years."

PodCon

Washington State Convention Centre

Seattle, WA

From the PodCon website: "PodCon is the result of conversations between these four people:

  • Hank Green (who has run a bunch of conferences and conventions)

  • Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor (who created Welcome to Night Vale)

  • Travis McElroy (who produces more podcasts than any other known human.)

We wanted there to be a place where people got together to really just /get into/ podcasts together for a couple days. That’s going to include discussions of what is oh-so-right about podcasts, but also some of the issues we have to face. It’s going to include live performances and mashed-up podcasts. It’s going to feature podcasters from tons of genres including fiction, news, science, comedy, drama, crime, interview and more."
