VidCon 2014 will be an event I’ll never forget. After exhibiting at VidCon over the course of three days with my Taggled colleague Heidi, I am now enjoying the delights of Southern California away from the Anaheim Convention Centre! Whilst I can now relax and enjoy the sunshine with Phill (who came out when the event finished), working at the event was fun.
For those of you who don’t know VidCon is a massive video convention which is now in it’s fifth year. Taking place in Anaheim, California, it attracts over 20, 000 video creators, video fans and industry professionals. From morning to evening the Anaheim Convention Centre is buzzing with activity. With Special Guest meet and greets and signings, to industry panels and the continuous hub of activity coming from the exhibition hall, VidCon is an event bursting with energy and creativity.
This year Special Guests included UK vloggers Tanya Burr, Jim Chapman, Zoella (and many more!), and US vloggers Tyler Oakley, Claire Marshall, Kandee Johnson (and many more!). Since I was working at the event there was little opportunity to seek out the Special Guests for myself but I was lucky enough to meet and get my picture taken with the beautiful Kandee and Claire. Both ladies were absolutely lovely…and very beautiful!
As for my company Taggled, we got a fantastic reception, with tons of people visiting our booth over the three days. I was worried about loosing my voice after the first day as I spoke to so many people and gave countless demos on our revolutionary video tagging tool. Thankfully, however, I got through! No doubt plenty of fast food helped keep me going ;).
