Get in loser, we’re going to VidCon!

I’M WALKIN’ HERE WITH

Hey! Welcome to the Creator Economy NYC newsletter — the premier place for all things creator economy in the Big Apple.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined us at our mixer and content workshop on Tuesday in partnership with Whalar and B&H. We had a phenomenal turnout and gained a ton of insight from B&H as they shared tips, tricks, and recommendations for lighting and audio with content creation. They’re the best.

I also want to shout out Verci for hosting us in their space and for their event support. Verci is a community in NYC connecting creatives and builders.

If this is your first newsletter — welcome to the community! We’re keeping things a bit short today as we head into a holiday weekend, so let’s get into it.

Other stops along the way:

  • Upcoming events

  • Community callouts

  • Community perks

  • News bits

PARTNERED WITH THE INFLUENCER MARKETING SHOW

Creators and marketers and brands, oh my!

I’m headed to The Influencer Marketing Show that’s taking place in NYC June 3-4 (in two weeks)! A day-and-a-half conference filled with tons of connections and learnings. Great opportunity to meet the smartest brands, creators, agencies, and tech that drive the creator economy forward.

I’m also moderating a panel there focused on where influencer marketing fits in the media mix, which should be a fun and spicy convo!

AND just for our community — get $50 off on tickets to the conference with the promo code CENYC50. Hope to see you there.

CITY HAPPENINGS

We’re going to Vidcon + can’t miss NYC events

Recapping with you all a few amazing events we have planned in the coming months. We will certainly need volunteers to help run these events, so if there are any you’d like to help with, please let me know which!

Additionally, we have a few sponsorship slots open for these events, so if you are interested in exploring involvement, please reach out here.

We’re excited to partner with beehiiv (the ultimate newsletter platform, who just raised a $33M Series B) for an awesome event during NY #TechWeek.

Kickstart your day with enriching insights and convos over a taste of New York with bagels, coffee and mimosas alongside fellow leading content creators, digital media experts, founders, marketers and investors.

Featuring an esteemed lineup of panelists: Kaya Yurieff (Lead Creator Economy Reporter at The Information), Alex Lieberman (CoFounder & Chairman at Morning Brew), and Preeya Goenka (COO at Beehiiv).

Space is filling up FAST for this, but priority is given to our community — so RSVP to secure your spot. Just put CENYC in the “how did you hear about this event?” question.

We are headed to the dark side (West Coast) at the end of June for an event at VidCon alongside our friends at Passionfruit and Teachable — who we previously teamed up with for a smashing creator event at SXSW. 

A VidCon, we’re hosting an intimate gathering of creators, brands, and media at the JW Marriott Garden with an open bar and light bites. But this time, we’re going “off the record”…

Here's what we mean:

  • ​We’ll ask guests to check their phones at the door in exchange for a notepad, pen, and a Polaroid of themselves. 

  • ​With the phones away (or stickered over if you refuse to surrender), we’ll host a frank panel discussion with special guests soon to be announced.

  • ​Guest polaroids will be snapped and shared upon arrival/departure for social sharing.

It’ll be a unique event with good vibes and great people to meet. If you’re headed to VidCon, we hope to see you there! And if not, please share with people you know attending!

P.S. you can snag VidCon tix here.
