How can I meet my favourite creators?
Oh guuurrrl, have we got some good news for you! VidCon is running meet & greets for all your faves.
Meet & greets are allocated via a lottery system. Every year VidCon hosts a Meet & Greet Lottery for Community & Industry Track attendees. This takes place a couple of months prior to the event. Participation in the Meet & Greet Lottery is the only way to attend the meet & greets at VidCon.
This is how it goes down. When the lottery opens, eligible attendees will be able to log in and choose from the list of participating Featured Creators, ranking them in order of interest. This is not a first-come, first-served lottery; you can take your time submitting your responses as long as your entry is submitted by the final deadline. When the lottery closes, the system will work its magic and assign sessions to attendees.
