Who Is VidSummit For?
Content Creators & Influencers
Last year, we had a few of the top 5 YouTubers in the world (w/ 17 million+ subs) come to VidSummit. After sharing their strategies on stage, they would sit down and take notes furiously just like everyone else.
It’s because at VidSummit, you get the most cutting-edge strategies of not just one person, but from dozens. If you make content online, whether it’s on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook or anywhere else, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
