“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” — Helen Keller.

YouTube Creators who are looking to network, learn, and stay up-to-date with industry trends may find value in attending various conferences and events related to digital media, content creation, and online video. Here are some industry conferences that YouTube Creators should consider attending — and you never know, you may run into the GigaStar team!

1. VidCon

VidCon is one of the largest and most well-known events for online video Creators and Fans. Held at different locations annually, this event offers a variety of panels, workshops, and networking opportunities, making it ideal for both established and aspiring YouTubers.

Our CEO Hazem Dawani & Creator Partnerships Manager Keven Gungor attended VidCon 2023 in Anaheim, CA.

8. Web Summit

Web Summit is one of the largest tech conferences globally, covering various aspects of technology and entrepreneurship. It’s an excellent place for Creators to learn about emerging technologies and trends that may impact their content.

9. Podcast Movement

If a YouTube Creator is also involved in podcasting or considering expanding their content formats, Podcast Movement is a top event for podcasters, offering insights into podcasting techniques, marketing, and monetization.

10. SXSW (South by Southwest)

SXSW covers a wide range of creative industries, including film, music, interactive media, and technology. It’s a great event to gain inspiration and insights from various creative disciplines.

When attending these conferences, YouTube Creators should maximize their time by planning to network, participate in relevant sessions and workshops, and take advantage of opportunities to collaborate with other Creators. Additionally, some of these conferences may offer a downloadable event app that helps attendees keep track of sessions! We’ve found this to be incredibly helpful as a tool to stay organized as well as book meetings.
