The seventh annual Summer in the City will relocate to Excel London from Alexandra Palace, organisers Vlogger Events Ltd announced today (2 February).
Held 15-18 August 2015, the event brings together YouTube viewers, content creators and brands. A day targeted towards industry professionals and content creators will also take place on 14 August.
The move to Excel allows Summer in the City to grow and accommodate more visitors. Live stage performances, Q&A sessions, meet & greet opportunities, screenings and brand exhibitions are planned across the three-day event.
“This year will be Summer in the City’s biggest year yet,” said the event’s founder Tom Burns. “We’re really excited to be at Excel this year and feel that it is just the beginning of much larger things to come, as our event continues to grow with the YouTube platform and is seen as one of the most prestigious YouTube events in the world.”
Brands including Adobe, LinkedIn and Hewlett Packard are expected at the event.
“We are delighted to be the host venue,” said Excel’s executive director James Rees. “For this cutting edge event, Excel provides a state-of-the-art, modern environment for people to come, get creative, express their ideas and be inspired.”
