VidCon has always been about connecting both the online video people which this is their job, and their fans to meet them and hang out. It originally had two tracks (which in conference speak, is part of a conference that is tailored to what you want to see); An industry track for the professionals working in Online Video, and a community track for those either starting out, or are fans of these celebrities. Recently, they've included a creator track, which is tailored to those in the community who are more starting out as YouTubers, who would like some help finding they're way around the place that is online video.
You maybe overwhelmed with the choice you have to make, so this is all about trying to find the right track to go on. We ask a few simple questions and from there work out your next steps.
Yes! The answers you gave to our questions show that you'd probably get more out of VidCon if you pay for the Creator track. It sounds like you'd be the person who would really enjoy the Creator panels, talks, and performances, while also discussing some of the big issues in the Online Video community. All that happens on this side of the conference.
Yes! The answers you gave to our questions show that you'd probably get more out of VidCon if you pay for the Industry track.
The industry track is run in the same way that any industry conference is run; everywhere to cost (around $500USD, which is at least you'd pay for any industry conference), industry related talks and panels that talk about the emerging trends and what's working in Online Video, and network with various people in the industry.
It is more expensive than the community pass (it's $500USD), but it's around what you would pay for any industry conference (or even more). It is worth every single dollar, since you'll get hands on with panels, talks from business leaders in the industry and network with people from various companies and networks. It's probably more worth it for you.
