FAQ

When and Where is VidCon?

Location: Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim California
Dates: Thursday June 26, 2014 – Saturday June 28, 2014
Tentative Time: 9am-midnight each day

What ticket type should I choose?

We’ve got a page on that as well. But, for simplicity:

  • Do you want to go to meetups or panels, get an autograph, dance into the wee hours, wander the expo hall and festival? Then you should get a Community Track ticket.
  • Are you affiliated with online video in any professional capacity (creator, marketer, executive, admin, production, and so on), or do you want to be? Then you should get an Industry Track ticket.

Does VidCon have a code of conduct?

Of course! Read it here: vidcon.com/coc

Do I have to buy a ticket for each day of VidCon?

You only need one ticket per person. Whether you have a Community Pass or Industry Pass, it’s good for all three days.

I bought my ticket; why haven’t I received it in the mail?

You will be able to pick up your badge when you check in at VidCon onsite at the Anaheim Convention Center. Approximately two weeks before VidCon, you will receive a confirmation email that will contain an individualized QR code. This QR code will be your FAST PASS for registration. BRING IT either on your phone or printed, and you will rapidly receive your badge. (You can also check-in with a photo ID & your confirmation email). Onsite registration opens starting on Tuesday, June 24th in the late afternoon and will continue through the event.

What’s the hotel situation this year?

We made a pretty sweet website for that. Check out vidcon.com/hotels. If you want a discounted room through VidCon’s block, you must make your reservation through that site. If you get confused, feel free to email us at [email protected] or contact the Housing Bureau directly at [email protected] or (714) 765-8868.

What do you mean the Hilton is sold out?

Sorry! There was nothing we could do about this other than change VidCon’s date, which would be bananas. But we arranged to have lots of awesome rooms available at other nearby hotels. Go to vidcon.com/hotels to see what’s up.

How old do I have to be to attend VidCon?

There is no age limit to attend VidCon. If you are under 18 and your parents are okay with you going, then so are we! If you’re under age 13, then we require that you have an adult with you. Ages 8 and younger even get in for free.

Is there a Chaperone Ticket?

We don’t offer any discounts for parents or chaperones. You are more than welcome to hang out at the hotel or in the new plaza around the Anaheim Convention Center; we just can’t let you into the expo hall, sessions, or Mainstage unless you are registered for a ticket. (Note: this does not apply to those with a disability who require assistance from a caregiver per ADA regulations).

Can I modify or cancel my registration?

Yes! Anytime before Monday, June 23rd, 2014 (the Monday before VidCon). Find your confirmation number, and go to vidcon.com/registration/modify. Please understand that if you cancel your registration you will receive a full refund minus a $5 processing fee (this is what it costs us).

Will there be a VidCon UK / East Coast / Mid-West / South America / my bedroom?

At present, we don’t have any plans for a VidCon outside of Anaheim. We dream about it, but so far we’re not planning on it. However, there are online video gatherings and conferences all over the world and we encourage you to attend as well as create them.
