Between October 30th and November 1st, 2015, online video creators, fans, and executives will flock to New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Center. There, Tubefilter, LeftField Media, and the City of New York will host Stream Con NYC, a three-day celebration of online video. With a little more than three weeks to go until the convention, its official schedule has arrived, and there will be events to satisfy a diverse group of attendees.
As with other online video conventions (specifically VidCon), Stream Con is split into several different categories, each one with a different focus. On Friday, October 30th, online video creators and executives will participate in panels and keynotes as part of an Industry Summit; presenters will include newsman Al Roker, Vimeo’s Kerry Trainor, Frederator’s Fred Seibert, and New Form Digital’s Kathleen Grace. Meanwhile, throughout the whole weekend, aspiring creators will be able to learn from the best at “Creator Camp” events. At the same time, viewers will descend on the Javits Center floor to attend fan events and meet-and-greets with their favorite creators.
The full schedule of events can be found on the Stream Con website, where it is broken down by category.
The guest list will include more than 80 prominent content creators known for their work on platforms like YouTube and Vine. Featured attendees include Mamrie Hart and Grace Helbig, who will perform a two-woman show on the 30th, and Nerdy Nummies host Rosanna Pansino. With Stream Con closing in fast, several creators have begun to hype it. Here’s Flula Borg and HollywireTV‘s Chelsea Briggs on proper convention etiquette:
If you want to join the Stream Con fun, you’ll need a ticket, which you can pick up from the convention’s website. A weekend-long fan pass will run you $97.50, while access to the Industry Summit costs $295.
