Two years after celebrating its anniversary in 2019, Paramount Global organized the massive comeback of VidCon. The global assembly was held at the Anaheim Convention Center on June 22-25, 2022.
VidCon returned with a dose of magic from the world of online video makers. Although thousands of digital content creators and platform pioneers were able to attend the three-day conference, the magic was not limited only to those who came to Anaheim. Community Expo Hall, Arena, and Industry Mainstage run live streams of the whole event, bringing a virtual experience to digital creators all over the world.
IPS Security supports the concept of sustainability as the overarching narrative for this year’s Vidcon.
When considering events as a whole, some of them can generate enormous volumes of trash and wasted food in addition to using a significant amount of electricity and water. Although local authorities are getting stricter when in terms of after-event clean-up drives before approving events to be held in public venues, the problem of waste problem still continues to exist at the disposal areas as recycling drives aren’t as many and frequent as events.
This year’s VidCon featured several new sustainability measures including an event-wide environmental statement and mission, a comprehensive recycling program for the duration of the show, and in-room recycling programs at the partner hotels. Meals were donated to local charities or food banks in the area. Organizers have also requested that caterers reduce waste as much as possible and participate in the recycling program.
Julia Maes, the executive producer of Vidcon, told Bizbash that while everyone has a green policy on their website, implementing it is a different challenge. She wanted VidCon to show what big actors can do. The ultimate goal is to inspire other events to follow its lead.
