VidCon, the world’s largest celebration of online video and digital creators, launched VidCon Now, an ongoing digital experience this past summer. For the first time, in December 2020, VidCon Asia will program local VidCon Now sessions featuring industry leaders and talent as part of the prestigious Singapore Media Festival, supported by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).
The sessions will launch on December 3, 2020 with new VidCon Now Asia sessions programmed afterwards on a bi-weekly basis. VidCon Now will be co-produced by production partners Branded.
“Southeast Asia is one of the most innovative places in the world with a huge pool of creative talent,” VidCon general manager Jim Louderback stated. “We are thrilled to once again be part of the Singapore Media Festival and continue to bring the world’s experts to Singapore while we celebrate and include local businesses, creators and experts. VidCon Now Asia will help drive the entire media ecosystem forward as creator-first media takes over more and more of media consumption, advertising dollars and creative and technological innovation globally and in Asia.”
VidCon Now Asia bi-weekly programming will be scheduled throughout 2021 across all three of VidCon’s established tracks, Community, Creator and Industry, presenting a mix of hands-on workshops helping creators and business build bigger audiences and drive more revenue, fireside chats and panels to help the media and creative industries understand the future of creator-first media and discussions of the key issues facing media and marketing as it transforms from linear to on-demand and always on all free of charge. Through a unique mix of top creators, emerging stars, industry leaders and insightful experts, the virtual experience will bring the best parts of VidCon to its Asian fans no matter where they are in the world.
Attendees can now view and register for programming at VidCon.com/now. New programming, creators and speakers will be updated bi-weekly and available online in month long increments.
