The World’s Largest Online Video Conference VidCon is coming to the RAI
VidCon, the world’s largest online video conference for fans, creatives and industry professionals has chosen Amsterdam for their first-ever international expansion. VidCon Europe will debut April 8-9, 2017, at RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. For VidCon Europe, the VidCon organizers chose Amsterdam due to its centralized location and easy access via plane, rail and car, relative to the large pockets of online video fans across Western Europe. RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre also is an ideal location for an event that VidCon expects to grow year to year.
“We are proud that VidCon is coming to the RAI”, says Maurits van der Sluis, COO at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. “We strongly believe that events like VidCon are an important part in the future of events: innovative face to face gatherings with a strong focus on content as well as technology. With strong cooperation between Amsterdam’s local government and its business and service sectors, we are highly committed to making VidCon Europe a resounding success.”
VidCon Europe will debut April 8-9, 2017 at RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre, while Vidcon Australia will launch September 9-10, 2017 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The original VidCon will return to the Anaheim Convention Center in the summer of 2017. Each new event will welcome approximately 7,500 fans and creators, with a custom experience designed to celebrate the online video world.
