It’s all about making it the safest event it can be…

The Abu Dhabi leg of the global content creator festival VidCon was initially scheduled to take place between March 25 and March 28, 2020.

Then, for reasons we’re certain you’ll fully understand the event, the global pandemic forced postponement to December 16, 2020.

Now, after careful re-evaluation of the current health climate, the organisers have decided to defer once more, pushing VidCon to a new time frame of December 8 to 11, 2021.

Create don’t hate

The inaugural event will bring stars of YouTube, TikTok, Instagram and other new media to the capital for panels, inspirational meet and greets, gaming challenges, musical performances, insider industry secrets, workshops and more.

We’ll just have to wait a little bit longer to soak up their wisdom and life hacks.

The announcement – made on the event’s website – cites the reason for postponing as wanting “to create the best and safest experience possible”.

An email will be sent to all those who purchased tickets, detailing the steps for each option.

A must-visit for any budding vlogging stars
