VidCon, held at Excel London from 20th to 23rd February, is the world's largest event for fans, creators, executives and brands who are passionate about online video and building diverse communities. This three-day celebration of all things online video offered a packed agenda that engaged the communities, the creators, and the industry with an inspiring mix of main stage speakers, fireside chats, live podcasts, online celebrity and influencer Q&A’s, along with a wealth of industry networking opportunities.
PRG provided full-service lighting, video and audio for all conference and plenary areas. The production team headed up by PRG Technical Account Manager, Dan Cebreiro, worked closely with Galore to create an environment that delivered for the professional industry audience and also provided a colourful, engaging backdrop for the younger community. “We used a screen capture application to present a live TikTok video taken on an iPhone, of online video creator Holly H, which went down well with the community fans, along with triggered audio playback for lip-syncing for the other influencers on the main stage; all great fun," said Cebreiro. “The audio control set up was similar to a festival, using 3 audio consoles, one for the main day conference, a separate console for mixing bands and one side stage for onstage monitors.”
The VidCon convention was launched in 2010 and is a global roadshow for online video stars to meet and discuss the emerging business of online video as well as it being a live platform for them to interact with their biggest fans. “For the second annual VidCon London, Dan and his team at PRG were exceptionally professional, adapting to all the last minute changes that are typical for this kind of live event, and playing a key role in the production of some amazing stage shows for the attendees.” said Gerado Lopez, Executive Producer at Galore. “Our next stop is Abu Dhabi followed by Mexico City and then the flagship show in Anaheim, California.”
