Here's What Others Are Saying About The VidSummit:



“I would compare VidSummit to VidCon Industry Day But on Steroids !!!”

Vy Qwaint


“I thought VidSummit would be people trying to sell products the whole time, and that is definitely not the case! My brain is on overload. Creator, advertiser, or marketer, this is where you need to be if you want to be the best and have the most current information from the best in the world.”

Warren Workman



"I had no idea how much I was missing. There are so many things out there that I can be doing to market my videos better. Small things that make a huge impact."

Ashley Prisbey

“I went to film school and learned how to make pretty pictures and tell engaging stories, but what I’ve been missing is the ability to reach and connect with an audience through the online medium, and now I have things I can actually take away and apply immediately.”

Austin Wilson
