The Information's 2024 Creator Economy Summit: A New Era. April 2, 2024. Los Angeles

The Information’s Creator Economy Summit will feature creators and the industry professionals that are leading the convergence in tech, entertainment and culture.

Topics to include:

  • A New Frontier for Startups

  • A Golden Age for Influencer Marketing
  • Commerce & Creator-Led Brands
  • Investing Lessons Learned

As the creator economy refashions itself again, Kaya Yurieff and other reporters from The Information will dive deep into the topics that will set the agenda in 2024. The Summit will feature exclusive fireside chats, topical breakout sessions and lively panel discussions. Attendees will mingle and learn from the most followed influencers, entrepreneurs and technology leaders, with plenty of time for live Q&A and networking.

  • COMMUNITY TRACK. VidCon’s Community Track is for fans of digital content, the creators, and the culture.

VidSummit is not a place where influencers connect with their fans. Instead, VidSummit is where you become an industry insider. Without the fans at the event, influencers share the truth of what they do - the truth they would never share online. In other words, VidSummit is the only event where dozens of the top 1% of influencers show you how to get fans fast, build a brand, and make millions from your content.
