On Tuesday, just ahead of VidCon, Facebook celebrated its own flourishing video community with an inaugural event appropriately dubbed Creator Day.

At the gathering, VP of product Fidji Simo and other Facebook partnerships managers convened with more than 120 top creators from across the globe at Los Angeles’ Smashbox Studios to share new product announcements — including new monetization tools and novel ways to gamify live video. Those in attendance included: English magician Julius Dein, comedy creator Laura Clery, anime-driven comedian Wuz Good, former Vine heartthrob Brent Rivera, famed feline Nala Cat, travel vlogger Nas Daily, Chinese chef Ms. Yeah, and U.K.-based sister beauty vloggers Pixiwoo.

Workshops at Creator Day included sessions on how to Grow & Nourish Your Community as well as Tips & Tricks From The Insiders. The event also featured a ‘Reaction Photo Booth’ — a takeoff on Facebook Reactions — as well as a ‘Facebook Fair’ that helped elucidate the company’s wide range of video products and platforms.

Check out some photos from the inaugural conference below:
