VidCon will be hosting 45-minute Industry Chats with a variety of industry experts and creators. These sessions will give 12 – 15 Industry Track attendees the opportunity to chat face-to-face with some of the online video world’s best and most knowledgeable experts to ask them questions about anything and everything related to online video. It’s a professional, laid-back opportunity for Industry Track attendees to gain valuable insight, knowledge, and tips from the people leading the future of the online video industry.

The Industry Chat Lottery runs from Thursday, 30 January – Sunday, 9 February. Those who received sessions will be notified by email.

The Industry Chats are exclusively available to Industry Track and Industry Student Track ticket holders. You must purchase a ticket in order to enter the lottery.

Entering the Industry Chat Lottery is the only way to participate in these Industry Chat sessions at VidCon. Spaces are very limited, and therefore not everyone will receive a session. All lottery results are final!
