Looking for a vlogger this weekend? Try Seattle, WA. The city most famous for clouds and coffee is welcoming VloggerFair the first ever industry event specifically for video bloggers (vloggers), those who are interested in becoming vloggers and fans of video blogs on June 8 and 9, 2013.
“Vlogger is THE place to be if you’re a vlogger or just interested to learn more about vlogging,” said Chris Pirillo, host of VloggerFair. “Everyone is invited to come join in the fun, make new connections and pick up a camera and start vlogging.”
VLoggerFair isn’t a conference, according to the event sponsors. They describe it as a festival celebrating interactions between vloggers, viewers and investors. Sounds sort of like a comic con but this pop culture revolution will definitely be recorded…and broadcast both live and at later dates.
Internet celebrity LockerGnome (also known as Chris Pirillo) is not just the host but also the driving force behind VloggerFair. Joining him live and onsite will be other popular and influential vloggers including iJustine, Joey Graceffa, ShayCarl, Olga Kay and many more. For other, less well-recognized vloggers, VloggerFair may also be their chance to achieve 15 minutes (give or take) of fame because ShayCarl is filming a portion of his acclaimed documentary I’m Vlogging Here during the event.
Attendees will also get to take a closer look at some of the products and tools that make vlogging possible and increasingly popular. Wondershare Software, a premier sponsor of VloggerFair will have representatives onhand to demonstrate and discuss some of their most celebrated products including Video Converter Ultimae, Dr. Fone, MobileGo iOS/Android and the PowerCam iPhone/Android app. These and other software utilities and apps help vloggers add pizazz and professional touches to vlogs shot with smartphones and other mobile devices. Other Vlogger sponsors include YouTube, Yelp and even the Ford Motor Company as well as more.
Oh, and for those blogger who might not be aware of what vlogging is (hint: it’s similar to blogging but done through a visual medium, that is to say, video hence video blogging), let alone how they might become a vlogger (or why they would want to) we turn to the immortal advice of the Vlogbrothers:
